my client is asking for my email, and sent me an img wich required the email for payment


vaynblayn

Question

the buyer has sent me this image (123) and said he needed my email to do the payment, i gave him my email because one of my friends said he did it too, and i recieved an email to verify the payment, as i clicked on the email verify button, i entered a website called fiverr.com and there was my account logged in and to verify and recieve the payment i needed to put my card number expire date and cvv, i didnt put those in because i have read that you should not give emails to people on fiverr and that all transactions should happen on fiverr, is it real or not? Thanks.

Now just pray that you do not get a notification from Fiverr that your account is banned due to sharing personal information with buyers.

It was a scam, and buyers do not need your email or any personal information to make payments on the platform.

This is a classic phishing scam. The buyer is trying to trick you into giving away your sensitive payment information. 

You did the right thing by not entering your payment information. Fiverr's official policy is to keep all transactions within their platform, and they will never ask you to provide sensitive information via email or external links. If you're unsure about a payment or email, always log in to your Fiverr account directly (not through links) and check for any notifications or messages from the buyer or Fiverr support.

yes i really understood that thankfully before writing in the website my credit card info, i now know that the transactions only happen in fiverr, i even said to him i gave him the wrong email so they dont think its mine and maybe dont spam it, thanks for the quick response, appreciate it .

I have received a very similar text that Fiverr is asking the client to enter seller's email address for payment verification, and it literally sounded like a scam to me and I didn't give them anything, they are trying their best to phish people into their traps, if we share our email we will either get banned from Fiverr or may just lost what we have in our account. Beware of these scammers, be clever and report if necessary.
