Hello,

Once I started getting downloads I post the statistics on the "Adobe Stock Contributors Worldwide" Facebook group to motivate others.

After writing several posts there, one of Adobe's customers has contacted me via the "Adobe Stock Contributors Worldwide" Facebook group.

Then He asks to see my Adobe Stock's portfolio. So, I provided the link to my Adobe Portfolio.

And later I got 2 extended sales on my best sellers.

Then he also asked to download more content from my portfolio.

--

Please help what should I do now? I am quite inexperienced contributor. So, please guide me if anything is wrong.

Don't answer anything, just block him (if possible). The "you want more" sounds like a classsic scam leadin where the next part he will tell you that you have to pay him something first.

What might be wrong? I would have thought, selling licenses was a positive result from the promotional power of social media. Do you see a negative?

Maybe I'm missing something crucial here but what exactly are your concerns?  What do you think you need help with?

After downloading my content, he also asked If I got any download or not. Here are the messages he sent out after purchasing my contents.

I am really stressed out about these situations. I didn't know what to answer him.

Sorry but what type of image did he bought from you?

 

My wild guess is... he'd done it to get your attention. Maybe he's interested in you? OR maybe he's just trying to help boost your earnings. 

 

Whatever his intention was, so long as he'd bought your images the proper/legal way, I dont see any problem with it.
