It has come to our attention that a lot of phishing and/or scamming has gone on recently. What this entails is someone PMing you telling you that they can get you FREE credits! "Omg," you say, "free credits. Me want." All you need to do, they tell you, is to download a programme from somewhere, install it and viola! Free credits!

THIS IS PHISHING AND THEY WILL STEAL YOUR ACCOUNT AND/OR ITEMS.

This programme logs your username and password and sends it back to the person who originally told you about this programme. They then proceed to strip your account bare, leaving you with nothing. How best to not succumb to these types of scams? Simple. Do not download the programme or even go to the link. And report them to a GM, straight away. If you download the programme, we will not help restore your items as anything you download or decide to install is your own responsibility. If you think you can cheat the game and attempt to do so by believing these stupid lies, we have no sympathy for you.

Otherwise you have nothing to worry about. Whilst the percentage of the population effected by these types of phishing/scams is small, it does still happen so the best way to protect against it is to not fall for it.

But overall remember! Have fun!
