Shopify Experts text me. Scam?

After I posted something in the Community, many (mostly Nigerian) „Shopify Experts“ texted me via WhatsApp and wanted to offer me store improvement. They all use a very similar writing style and like to use the word „kindly“.

 

However, they do seem to know what they are talking about (SEO, Klavyio…)

 

Has someone experience? Are those people trustworthy?

I got contacted just yesterday by 3 Nigerian numbers via Whatsapp and they are asking me how it is going with my store and that they can provide help.. and when I ask them which store exactly because I have many stores (just lying to them), they get so lost they stop chatting with me hahaha definitely a scam

I worked with a few of them. Had terrible experiences. One in particular was rude and asked me for my social media login details so that he could "manage" it. He wanted to sell me an email list and some email templates to spam people. When I turned it down he got offended? Anyways I wont work with anyone who contacts me first saying " i found some issues with your store...etc". Id suggest you find and interrogate your own freelancers before working with anyone.
