How is this Allowed on Fiverr ??? [Urgent]


Recommended Posts

I'm sorry for posting this here but its really urgent

I was just chilling in my gig page until I received this in my inbox, as you can see this looks like Fiverr Support, But No This is from a hacker pretending to be Fiverr Support telling me my account was suspended and I need to activate it with my Credit Card, and the funny thing is I nearly fell for it....  They sent me an image with a QR code, asking me to scan it with my phone, it sends you to a Fake Link and a chat will pop up, IF YOU DO WHAT THIS GUY IS TELLING YOU YOU WILL LOSE YOUR BANK ACCOUNT.

Please do something about this, a random person should not be able to impersonate Fiverr Support.... The security in the website is flowed

I just got a message like this saying my account was "temporarily suspended for suspicious activity" when I started my gig YESTERDAY. I checked the QR code but did not introduce any personal information as this seemed extremely suspicious. I can't even find the original message. THANK YOU!

I'm so glad that helped someone avoid this very convincing fishing attack, I hope Fiverr does something about it cause when I research it I found out a lot of vulnerabilities, they literally target new sellers and fresh accounts who have no Idea what they are doing, and proceed to talk to them as "Fiverr Support", I hope They do something about it..

if you gave away any info, about your bank account or bank company to this attacker please contact your Bank company immediately, they could do all sort of things with Credit Card Info with your name on it.

Good Luck and stay safe on the internet.

It's basic internet safety though. You check who is contacting you, and you don't just randomly open any file. Fiverr doesn't really contact you via the inbox, they will send a message. And if someone does contact you via your inbox, which is extremely rare, it's obvious they are from Fiverr. But yeah, people need to be very careful because scammers can easily get a hold of their data.

I did contact my bank afterwards just to see what I can do in case I detect suspicious movements in my bank account. I turned on the notifications for my movements in my bank app.

Also, just an hour ago I recieved another VERY likely scam DM from someone who did not specify what they wanted but just asked me to contact them on Telegram and I "could get paid". That scumbag also deleted his message very little after I saw it. Be aware for these scammers as this is the SECOND scam attempt I get in 1 single day!
