PostSubject: Fake GM   Wed Feb 03, 2010 10:43 am

My son was playing WoW the other day ( I know, I know) and he was sent a message from some one claiming to be a gm. He said the account had been suspended and that my son should log onto this other site for a full explanation. Now my son is not stupid and he realized it was a scam right away. ( he was still playing, and the whisper did not look right to be a gm call) He still wanted me to pass it on to any one playing in any mmo so they know about it and are aware of the latest method. Granted, this sort of thing hit FFXI a long time ago but you never know when something like this will be recycled.

Its actually in full-swing once again in FFXI...quite a few members including myself have been getting fake GM /tells of late. Not very often but has happened. The gil/gold etc farmers and seller are becoming desperate cause its very hard to make any type of profit in FFXI, dunno about WoW though...hehe

I figured it would be. The FFXI population tends to have a higher IQ then WOW players though.

Lol !

Well i havent been contacted by a fake GM yet..
I think when they search for potential players to sckam they
are looking for somone els then a noob.

Moral of the story is:
Always look and sound like a noob.
That way they will skip outright.

I saw this a lot on another mmo I played, Star Wars Galaxies, and the sad thing is it worked alot. I guess the newer players there were just more gullible, it's really not a easy scam to fall for, seeing as how rarely do GM's go out of their way to contact you individually unless you were harassing someone.
