I'm a new freelancer, meaning I've been receiving a lot of scammers wanting me to work with them. I've been avoiding all of them (saying I don't accept payment or contact outside fiverr, then blocking them). But today I got a message from a person with no reviews (joined in this month), already sus. She wants me to : "U have to complete 10 surveys it will not take more than 1 hour. U have to enter email id and zip code and then u have to answer some questions". She haven't mentioned anything else or wanted contact outside, etc. What should I do then? Is it okay to provide email and zip code through a survey?
Today's dilemma? Dealing with a buyer who is using a fraudulent 'purchased' account. They've essentially taken all of 30 minutes to look over a 10,000 word book, declaring that it is garbage and that there is nothing I can do to fix it. Incredible! 🤣 Looking at their reviews, they are all replications from either the same person, or containing similar wording. Can you say 'fake account!?' So what they've done is pay for an order, decline delivery under the false pretense that I didn't deliver on the proverbial goods, and they're probably going to sell it. Or worse - they were commissioned by someone else under a separate seller account, and they're trying to sub-contract the work when they can't even afford to. Utter nonsense. Sellers are stuck between a rock and a hard place, I tell you.
