    My encounter with a scammer.

    So here's my (long) story, this guy, *BN_DarkStar messages me while i'm in a trading channel. He whispers me and says:

    BN - Hey never, this guy just gave me an account, if you guess who i am i'll give you something.

    Me - and you are...?

    BN - I'll give you a hint, i know you in real life

    ME - Steve?

    BN - No

    ME - Mark?

    BN - Heh heh, yeah, make a game

    ME - xxxx/xxxx

    (we both get into the game)

    ME - What's up mark?

    BN - oh nothing

    ME - (I suddenly catch on that this guy is pretending that he knows me and I know that he's gonna ask if he can borrow my items) So what do i get?

    BN - I'll give ya a hoto, but let's duel first

    ME - Sure (we hostile each other and i kiill him)

    BN - Can I see what you're equipping?

    ME - Sure, (I show him my frenzy barb gear and he shows me the HOTO)

    BN - Can I try out your axes? (my axes were Doom and Beast)

    ME - (knowing that he's not actually my friend...) Hey can I try on your HOTO first?

    BN - Eh...

    ME - (I whisper a friend to come over and he does) Hey Mark, this is my friend Steve, do you remember him?

    BN - No not really...

    Steve - Hey Mark, remember me?

    BN - Nope... sorry

    ME - You don't remember? You met him at the sex shop while buying dildos (I know... real crude)

    BN - oh... now I remember. Can I try on your axes now? They're cool

    ME - **** off you piece of ****.


    Yep, just watch out for people who are pretending to be your friend, I had fun with this guy and it was hilarious. Once again, the guy's name is *BN_DarkStar so watch out

    Me too, I always say stuff like "remember the time when..." blah blah blah to see them try to make up stuff, it's amusing when it happens... kindof like messing with telemarketers in real life.

    I've encountered something similar to this a long time ago, in .09. Too bad I fell for it and gave the person a piece of my equipment. I just left the game right after he couldn't name my friend's (whom he was pretending to be) characters, since I didn't even want to bother dealing with a scammer, trying to get the item back.

    I must admit though, it was a really interesting scam, something original, that I've never heard of before.

    I experienced something similar yesterday, and a friend last week. A new wave of scammers :lol:

    I just kept talking about girls with that guy, asking him how he finally sorted his problems out with his girl from last week and the one he had met yesterday :rolleyes:

    But he just claimed he had no memory of what happened :confused: (that was actually his answer to almost everything when I asked him something)

    Yesterday a guy entered my game and asked if I want to be rich. I said "yes". And he said somthing like "give me your account and I'll mule good items there".
    I can only wonder how stupid did this guy think I am, if he offered me such a "help". Should have asked him how many people beleive this kind of ****. :)

    Actually, I once did ask that question. He answered "surprisingly many" :( He even told me he got two enigmas that way :eek:

    Another proof that there are too many idiots on this planet :rolleyes:

    I think, I should make a special account for that kind of scammers.
    1 mule with gold in invenroty, put in the shape of LOL. Too bad, it's impossible to leave a long message on a character.

    I'm very curious on how you're gonna do that? With potions or scrolls or stupid charms or keys, I'd understand. But gold in inventory shaped like LOL? Really, DO tell me :rolleyes:

    Or you can always make chars named:
    IDontFallForScams
    HowDumbDoILook
    RoflLolLmao
    DudeURPathetic
