    2nd comment down

    Code:
    http://www.fiverr.com/users/kristinemcleigh/gigs/setup-wordpress-seo-and-backlinks
    The guy posts his IP address, his account username, and his password in a public forum.

    Now I am not suggesting anyone do anything with it, but damn, that is really stupid.

    i have seen some people in dp do this too, but the mods delete those posts, there are shitloads of dumbasses on the internet, our best bet is to monetize them and try and help them come out of the shit they are in in exchange for the money

    edit: just tried connecting to ftp, not connecting, guess he has been advised to change ip/password already :D

    I'll be very surprised if someone hasn't alreday been in his account and looked around and ripped off some of his files or screwed his setup up just to be mean (there are many spiteful people on the internet).

    I'm not a malicious person and would never do anything with that information, but I'm certain that there are plenty of people out there who know how to capitalize on something like that.

    nice find, but it would be a good idea to delete the url from your OP (maybe it's already too late)

    there's no need to more attention than it already gets on fiverr ;)

    i pmed OP there about this lil mistake he's done :)

    or... maybe he had his friend give him that bogus feedback so that 1000's would go to check it out... push his gig to the top, not bad for $5~!

    Fiverr users are not very smart anyway, it's a place infiltrated with newbies. It's like DP. Sometimes they make me laugh hard with their responses and questions. And they are so easily scammable, that's why so many scams happen on there. Did I say they are not smart? :D

    This one was amazing, thanks for sharing

    yes, indeed
    and if you answer something half decent which is available almost everywhere online, they think you're some kind of god :D and they're giving you a stunning feedback without thinking
    but it's fine, smart marketers have to live from something :)

    Or.. they are too stupid to know how to use something. I got a negative review from someone that could not set up something which I wrote detailed step by step, everything that was needed was to open up a website and click 2 links and authorize twitter :rolleyes: The best idea is to just sell pdf guides since you do not need to change them, no work needed and you get awesome rep + you can spam the report with affiliate links :D
