Be glad.

People complain all the time that the briefs they do get are scams, or asking for something that they don't offer at all, or both.

Thank you so much for share your experience

I agree. I got 3 briefs until now and all of them were incomplete, without information and they didn't even have any way to contact the person for more details. So.. skip? 🙂

Are you sure? There's a "Message Buyer" button since a while on my briefs. Doesn't really help, though, if you have to keep rejecting them as "Suspected spam / buyer not credible", almost all briefs I get are those telegram scam ones that also clutter BR lately.

I don't know, I haven't received any new brief since the last time I posted in a brief-related topic. It has been a while. At that time, there was no way to contact anyone. I can only assume they added that recently, after Frank shared that forum topic with the Fiverr team, I know he said they were working on it.

Sorry if I'm asking a stupid question, but just to cover all possibilities, is your Get Briefs feature still on?

Frank had posted that a while ago, before his trip already, I'm pretty sure. I read it and turned the feature on again because of that. Not that it helped, the two or three times I sent a message, they messaged back with, guess ... right, a telegram address I was supposed to message for further information. Sadly, almost all briefs I'm getting, are either definitely one of those scam briefs, or very much look as if they are, and the remaining 1% or so is for something I don't even remotely offer. The briefs need people to filter out the telegram scams, shouldn't be too hard, but, yeah, guess it requires personpower.

But, in any case, messaging instead of sending an offer is possible now, and you have "Suspected spam / buyer not credible" for choice among the rejection reasons, that are already two advantages over BR. Now, if there only were actual briefs by actual customers who wanted to pay and not scam you on telegram...

It's interesting that you don't get the telegram scam briefs "at least", I thought there'd surely be some that would be matchable to writing Gigs too. I already got 4 of the scam briefs today, and it's only midday, so they may be targeting only certain categories. Or could it be due to the $50 that I set as a minimum for briefs? As those scams usually have a dizzyingly high budget for here, in the hundreds and thousands, they may not get matched to sellers who set lower limits? On the other hand, some have only "flexible" for budget and everything else, they are trying different tactics.

I guess I am too inexpensive to them and they want to scam higher priced gigs..who knows. But no, I didn't receive any inbox message or brief with Telegram scams, althouhg I saw a lot of sellers on the forum mention them. I guess I was lucky 🙂
