    I'm confused as to why you are posting and asking here. The email address seems legit so you just have to wait for them to get back to you.

    That's most prob it then because I buy on there some times but not a lot and I got nothing about a T-shirt if you and OP both sell a lot it must be that

    Why would someone do something like that? Where is the gain here if the recipient is going to have to contact a legit email address?

    Fiverr makes tons of money doing nothing, they don't even fix their own bugs, so they could surely take a few $15 of that and send some of the dudes above a t-shirt.

    I think you just need to be patient and wait for communication from admin.
    Though I find it weird that the support team doesn't know about such an offer
    and have to confirm first. I mean, they would know if they were running
    a reward promo for top rated users, right?

    they're pretty aggressive with this shit, i just received a follow up email and a pm on fiverr

    i smell fish but maybe it's just because we see so much scam going on that we're getting extremely cautious even when we shouldn't be

    anyways i'll continue ignoring it
