This has nothing to do with Fiverr.

On Fiverr, a buyer places order (through Fiverr) and pays for it, you deliver (also through Fiverr), and you can withdraw your earnings 2 weeks after the order was marked as complete.

If they have contacted through Fiverr and asked you to work outside of Fiverr, you have violated Fiverr's Terms of Service by accepting to do it (and could get permanently banned from Fiverr for it), and those people have scammed you.

Considering the information they're asking for, this could easily be an attempt at identity theft.

Why even go to the trouble of stealing their identity, if they can just ask for $350 directly lol.

This is not a "maybe", this is not sophisticated, this is not a grand operation. This is as basic as it gets, and if someone needs to come and ask about it, they shouldn't be allowed on the internet in the first place. It's straight up saying "hey, I have money for you, pay me first and then I'll send you the money". If someone approached you on the street and said "hey, give me 20 bucks, and I'll come back here tomorrow and give you $200", would anyone fall for the "scam"? I fail to see the difference.

People fall for that kind of scam all the time.
