So, my wife just created her first gig a few days ago, and in the last days she is receiving A LOT of messages from people inviting her to do some projects outside Fiverr (mostly writing, translation etc).

All of those messages gets flagged automatically as a spam by Fiverr, because those people are saying to contact people in Telegram.

So I decided to "bite the bait" with her last contact: Karena Howells, "Project Manager at Toptal".

Meet "Karena Howells":

The conversation goes below:

After that, she stopped speaking.

I searched this forum and found some reports about a "project manager at Toptal" trying to scam Fiverr users, charging US$50.00 to deliver a order for a project.

Beware of scammers, fellow colleagues. They are everywhere.

That is true and I couldn't agree more.

However, remember contacting people outside Fiverr (even if your intention was really to explore just out of curiosity) is a violation of the Fiverr terms of service. And can lead to your account getting a warning or even deleted.
