Title: ZOMG! I almost got scammed

dflame58 - February 20, 2009 03:07 AM (GMT)
So i got a random pm on irc. saying that this guys clan wanted me to be co leader and that they could help me get 99 range by doing some drop trick with bounty hunters. So I was like why would they want me as co leader. hes like cause u almost have 99 range ... i know everyone thinks I'm cool :) so he gives me the site. I go there for some reason being careful cause I kinda think it could be real and cant be real at the same time. I mean maybe they could give me money. some ppl have a ton of cash from gwd and such. he said they do gwd earlier in the convo. so i go to the apply thing. and it looks exactly like the official rs forums. so then there is a log in button. i click it but the java app doesnt load. i click it again and then it refreshes the page but then loads to the officail rs page. i log in as annas cupid cause i dont care if it gets scammed. I tell the guy it doesnt work. by that time i realized that the login bug was cause they couldnt do a java app. so he tells me to click the here thing if the java app doesnt load.

says username and pass
i type


press enter. it goes to some random page for a webhoster i think. and the guy pms me

"i lose"
and i say gg :)

heres the ss

so keep in mind this when random ppl pm you about joining and getting free stuff. Nothing is free. unless i open trade and give you something. which happens not often.


Kinda funny that it happened at the time it did. Since my acct is on a 10 day ban, if i fell for it then he could only change my password and other info tied to the acct, since u cant log into it right now. woulda been funny to see the look on his face when he tired to log in and it was like you have been banned. or whatever it says.

I don't go to random links that people pm me, cooky grabbers are ftl.
Unless it's someone I trust.

that is soo hilarious.

Also wats funny is that he RWT 150 Dollars worth of items and still expects Jagex to give him his stuff back. His account should be perma Banned just for that.
