As some have tried this to a few of my faction members. I sent out a letter telling them that if someone is asking for money, then to have them mail them in game. Especially if someone acting like me or my co-leader is "asking" for anything.

@Datsik420, Lmao, Unfortunately I had to same thing happen to me a few weeks ago. Some guy on IRC pretended to be my spouse and was telling me to refer his friend. Fortunately he gave it away by his writing style, e.g writing 'U' instead of 'You'. When I realized I told him to mail me in-game and then he quit IRC.

There are no clever scams, just silly people...


You've obviously never signed a contract and then tried to end it?

Those things are very, very crafty..... freaking phone companies scamming us now.


Anyway...
Scams are aimed at getting gullible people (Hey, they fell for it!) into giving others something of value.

Just don't ever give things to people you don't know.
Simplez.

This includes money, items, faction co-leadership, etc etc.

Once you learn to not give stuff away... you're sorted!

Just gamble frequently at the bookie. You will eventually lose everything, and if you have nothing to scam, you are completely scam-proof! Works for me, anyway!

Sure, so long as you join us. Your profile signature screams gullibility, having fallen for the worst scam of all: becoming a subscriber. You even seem to be proud to be one of the first fools to board that ship...

There's no need to trade real money for imaginary. I can buy all of those things that you won, using in-game money, if I even had a desire for them. I could even research a few bets and get them for a bit of time, no credit card/paypal/mobile phone account required. I haven't donated since Chedburn Networks Incorporated went back on most of the things that it told us that prompted to donate initially. I will not make that mistake again, and encourage others to do the same, because its never too late to abandon ship.

Such a heart-rending tale of suffering and loss and betrayal there - why you very nearly made me shed a tear as I felt myself empathising with your pain Fujiko.

Oh wait nevermind - as impossible as it may sound that really was just a speck of dust in my eye.

p.s. The douchebag working this "scam" tried it on me as well - didn't take long for me to tell him to piss off.

So nice to see such a customer service-friendly attitude from members of the so-called "players committee". You could have easily mailed me to find out my concerns and bring them to the attention of Chedburn Networks Incorporated, but instead you chose to mock me in the forum instead. Splendid job, (if your job is a yes-man, which I have been arguing since its inception). Keep up the good work.

For the rest of us, the Players Committee is also a scam. It is there to try to add legitimacy to the whims of the admins, despite any corporate representations that they may have made to us in the past.

Last Sunday, someone using my username in IRC and tried to scam my torn spouse Libertarious [311863] off his PI. Apparently this person asked him if he could send his PI to someone i referred to the game, who needs help and i would replace his PI the next day..well the Scammer failed big time..lol because Lib knows me pretty well in the game..

To begin with, i was never online at that time and most importantly; he knows that I don't go to IRC except Drugdean and I would never ever ask, beg, borrow nor steal from anyone and he was too smart not to fall for it. Nonetheless, i'm still interested to find out who it was.

So folks don't fall for similar tricks..and if ever anyone see a Bugz begging and pulling similar tricks in IRC or anywhere in the game.."kill it!":P
