    It's a very old scam. You just have to learn not to trust anyone online. I've heard stories of people's best friends for several years scamming them out of some items.

    Welcome to the forums. Sorry for your loss. (Makes you just want to reach out and SMACK someone doesn't it!?) I think most everyone here has gotten scammed at one time or another but we keep on playing...just a bit smarter.

    Anyone here who hasn't been scammed raise your hand. Thought so. You in the back with your hand up....how long have you been playing? A total of 30 minutes....I see.

    You will do just fine, ViciousXV....Good hunting!

    Revenge

    Yes. Put him on ur friend list.

    Build up your char, preferrably pk mode.

    Then find that guy, sneak up on him while he mf, lvl or duel and kill his char, 20 times over. (Tell him, u will let him get his body back, then regret it...)

    Use any means to get this done, recycle his 'trick' if it works.

    Revenge will be sweet.

    Who else besides me, who has been on these forums for years see's this for the BS that it is?

    So this guy wants us to believe that he is NEW to the game and in 3 weeks HAD all the 1337 endgame gear? That he was awesome enough to get all that gear and still lame enough to fall for a body pop?

    Sounds to me like a lamer trying to get some free itamz from somebody whose feeling sorry for the n00b.

    Besides arreat and highlords he wasn't wearing that good gear imo. He might have got those stuff in free games or from other players or friends.

    @Rplusplus - ViciousXV is kind of new to this forum so maybe he is not that experienced. He just wanted to say what happened to him. So if someone helps him thats not a big loss. Experienced players have lots of items that the dont useor trade to donate or give away free...

    Conclusion - It's just a game! Helping others is a part of the game that makes this game fun! ;)

    I thought that it was after like 15 or 16 times that your body popped.. either way this scam is so old it's not even on my scam list, lol. So I'm going to add it real fast; here's a link to the scam list- read it so you don't fall for any other ones:

    Well...there is always one wiseacker in the crowd isn't there.

    Congrats...it would be unlikely that you would get scammed at this point.

    Say....you have been playing since the game came out right? but only for a total of 30 minutes! *grin*

    No offence...just funnin. you :)

    heh, if only this guy would come back and post his account name and realm and we'd all shower him with items at least ten-fold better.
