    So I sell on fiverr and I got a BS warning, this guy wanted someone to go through and comment on blogs really really cheap. So I told him in a conversation when I delivered his work to check out one of the micro worker sites because you can't really get that on fiverr. Well then I got a warning that they will close my account if I send people to similar sites like fiverr again. So obviously they're reading my delivered work emails. To make this short I have a decent amount of money that I don't want to cash out but use on services, so does anyone know if they check just regular emails sent through inbox? Cuz I have a guy that wants a job done that will cost more than $5 but I don't want my account to get closed if I send him my email through there, so just seeing if anyone does this? I heard a lot of people upselling but I'm guessing you don't do it through delivered work.

    I get deals on Fiverr all the time. Just tell them to "message me through my website at mysite dot com"

    then send through regular emails.

    in which form did you send your email? example@email.com? because this will trigger their moderation system (you must have noticed the message in red) and i'm guessing they're checking these messages manually, but not all the messages

    so just a forget about sending your email address w/o coding it, attach a text file with your email in it, transform your email into a picture:

    [​IMG] <- this is a picture, you can create something like this using:
    Code:

    you still can be screwed tho, but at least you tried to evade it :)

    You are not allowed to tell your website or email address in ANY form on Fiverr, but if your follow HoNeYBiRD and acotut's advice, you will lower your chances of getting banned for it. You must understand, people get off on reporting others for breaking the rules. And I understand Fiverr's take on it. Fiverr would be dead if they let everyone steal their customers.

    Just to be safe, I never give out my email address in ANY way. Putting your email address in a report can easily be checked by Fiverr IF a buyer reports you, and you will lose all of your money, or at the very least have it frozen for a few months. It is blatantly breaking Fiverrs rules. The ONLY safe way around it is to use a proxy and create a new account and PM them your email or website address but don't make any mention of your Fiverr Username when PMing them.

    It is up to you if its worth risking your account over.

    yea, i think most of the sellers do the same and you can get away with it until somebody (unsatisfied customer, competition) reports you, which may never happen...

    That is because Fiverr doesn't have time to check everything manually, and doesn't have a way to scan the attached text files for email addresses, and even if they did, many reports will have a legitimate email address in the report because that was required for the job. But think carefully about what you are doing. A buyer who sees it could report you and Fiverr can manually check it. Is it worth the risk?

    or put a flyer of your service in an image and attach the image when you complete your work. This way, they can't create code to read it unless they use CTR but I doubt that will happen.
