Who can stop this spam?


Recommended Posts

I see the following job offer "I NEED SOMEBODY WHO CAN TRANSLATE ENGLISH TO OTHER LANGUAGE VERY WELL" for a couple of weeks. It appears every day numerous times. I think it's a spam or I am wrong?

Within the creative writing section there are also a few same BRs that are continuously posted, so I definitely consider it spam. It also annoys the hell out of me, because it's just cluttering and I don't see the point. I was wondering if something could be done about it too, but now I just sigh and keep removing it.

I just think it's weird there's no spam option to click for BRs, since we can't see the user. I think that would be a good feature to implement!

I'm so lucky not to have to visit BR deeply (I'm pretty busy right now!) But the creative writing BR is the lovechild of chaos and a mess. It's bad. I don't consider them to be spam just because it seems to be the same 5 desperate people trying to get either NSFW content (very sketchy one, too) or 50 THOUSAND words for free... And a few other odd ones!

It's either a spam or someone trying to outsource for pennies! I really wish we could report in the BR section!

You are not wrong. Everyday in the writing and translation category this spammer finds a way of annoying us. 

As a matter of fact I find it very annoying that I thought of reporting the spammer but I don´t know how to. It is possible the spammer has multiple accounts as it appears every day multiple times under different usernames. Sometimes the BR appears more than trice at ago.😠

And the budget indicated is mostly $800. 

I responded to it once but now every time I come across it I remove it immediately.

Whoever that person is he/she needs to be stopped!

I wish Fiverr could add a report button somewhere besides the job offer description to report these “buyers.”

The infamous... Every time I get that offer on BR I'm tempted to reply and tell them to stop

I've seen a request for NSFW non-con Harry Potter fanfiction...

Or "[...] to their local language very well"
Seen them and ignored right away
