So, how dumb do scammers think we are? I literally just got this mail and though I must share it. Firstly, the guy was menace-47 [1197485] - last action 1 minute and already in fed for 999 days (that was fast! - good job staff) The subject was "System Warning!". They didn't even make it red :/ They put no effort into this attempted scam, furthermore, making this comedy gold, at the top of everyone's screen, it says in bold green letters "Never give your username or password out to anyone, even admins, ever!" and this guy is asking for my username and password (with poor grammar nonetheless).

Now, I really do feel for the guys who get scammed, friends who betray their trust, but scams like this, I'm sorry but if you fall for this, you kind of deserve it.

Image below for comedic value:

So, do you have any funny scam attempt stories?

They are probably gold for me too, I'm colorblind - they look green!

My son is colorblind, he thinks they're green too.

No scammer stories here. I wish someone would at least attempt so I can have a chuckle, too.

Not all colourblind people mistake the same colours, it all depends on which rods work in your eyes. How did you not know that when you're colourblind?

On topic, that was a lazy scam.

I've got a scam detector that I'll sell to anyone for 20mil, send the cash first- can't send it in a trade.

Very true about the colorblind thing, also; I'm selling 3 of my PI for 500m, I'm quitting so I don't need them, selling them for cheap so that I can still do giveaways. My trade doesn't work on mobile tho (something to do with flash) so just send the money and I'll send an island ASAP!

People get phished all the time that is why the message is now there at the top of the screen. There are a LOT of idiots who play this game who need to have someone holding their hands while they are playing.

This one time I got scammed,

I got scammed into scrolling right to left for a few minutes while reading a forum post when I didn't really need to.

O.T. Had a couple of these messages but usually they at least have a name like -Admin- or _Staff Helper- or something so obviously fake.

I think my last reply was something along the lines of;

Username: Go Fu*k

Password: Your self.

Anyone falling for this kind of low grade scam deserves it.

Right here. Before I saw the name of the OP, I thought it was another player who shall remain nameless.

Hmm well they did say admins will never ask for your password but maybe they never expected this problem. I better send this stranger my password just in case, he seems legit. Smh people are so gullible. Obviously admins put that warning on top BC people were falling for it. It only takes one idiot out of 1,000 to make a scam worth it which odds are the number of idiots is way higher than 1/1000
