    Hello.
    Three days ago I got this mail:
    ***
    Want to play Torn City's Hospitality Game? 


    The rewards are endless. You help someone, we help you but our help is much greater. 

    If you complete the job, you get a reward or you can choose to get another job for an even greater reward.

    Are you in?***

    I checked the account and it lead to Anonymous [9]. Who we all know gave the missions back in the days. 
    Thought it was legit, and answered "yes".
    Got this response:

    ***The rewards are endless because you decide how much money you receive.

    Go to the bazaars of the players listed below and spend as much money as you want. 

    The amount you spend will be tripled and returned to you. You will have two hours after the purchases. 

    When the the two hours pass, you will receive your money. 

    Please send me a message with all of your purchases.

    Here are the players' bazaars: (If a bazaar is closed, then other players have already purchased all their items)

    SoloPaladin is right, they completed the education allowing them to send mails anonymously. Unfortunately a bug(?) causes the 'anonymous' word to link you to the account of the NPC, which i presume should not happen.

    Sorry to say you were scammed.

    it is the same as every con in life, you try to get an amazing advantage over a small thing. Your own thirst for riches made you loose good judgment, so take this as a deep lesson to life and finaly torn will teach some life skills to you.

    Personaly, i got my torn life lesson too, mine was something as "never go to casinos" ;)

    I have had a few people attempt to scam me but I always question whether money (TC or real) can actually fall from the sky if I just open my bank accounts....
    Always check with a more experienced player to ensure that you are not scammed.

    and remember that there are some crafty people out there....

    This makes no sense. A gullible person would lose the cash not earn it. Gullible is not a good trait, the op is gullible the scammers are opportunists.
