HOW I STARTED I was 17 when I first started my journey. Back then, I know almost nothing about Internet marketing, affiliate marketing or SEO. Wordpress was all that I know, to be frank - not so much I knew about WP, just a glance. I was not even a rookie. But I was able to get some money out of it, which was more than enough for me. Often, I get jobs for Video editing too, it was my favorite job. So never missed anything. Things went smoother. Have arrived lots of strategies to find potential buyers and I did have some repeated buyers. HOW it HAPPENED It was midnight. I could barely open my eyes, kind of tired and in bad shape coz of day's work. Gotta message from a buyer. Quickly we shared skype ids and started chatting. That guy tempted me with numbers, and I fell for it at once. He made me believe, he was from an organized firm that sells web designing. Deceived me, that I could make 100s in a day. He got my paypal and other email ids for communication. [that's what I believe]. He, then got my mobile no.! Asked me to provide a code which receive via SMS for verification. Idiotically, I provided him the same without even think for a second. Actually it was google verification code for forget password! In a matter of seconds, he got my g mail and the yaho which was my secondary/alternate mail id So, in a minute he was in possession of my primary email accounts, which I did not know for 15 minutes until I tried to login my email. With the help my email, he got access to my fiverr and withdrawn all my money. At that time, it was quite easy to change the pp in frr. No confirmation required! It was $54, may be not much but it was a hard earned money It took me 48 hours to gain access to my fr account again. It was the first time, I got scammed and was broken. Things changed, now I know something that I could differentiate real and fake buyers [most of the time]. Been 7 years, still remember the bitter experience, got from it. just wanted to share it. Even experts or more than just experts might come across situations where they get scammed at any point of their life. if you have anything like this, do share.
