Well one reason i posted that because some tickets cannot be resolved . They keep on asking , finding or looking for something . For example you deal with some items but you forgotten to screen shots that deal, and that items by chance have issue .  The buyer of that items or the current player holding that items will also have issue or problems . Sometimes can lead to ban or wiping whole items in the accounts .

I have read almost all the entires in this. And I want to help people preventing of being scammed.

 

There are other ways some people can get your password. One that comes to my mind and its very active nowadays since its easy to make:

 

a) A friend, or an unknown person (whatever) creates a private server, and invite you to test stuffs, or be a staff member, or whatever, the point is there are two sensitive data involved if you accept:

  • Your personal email or email binding to your RO accounts.
  • Your login credentials in case you are some of those persons that use the same ID/Password or just add numbers to it.

Those P. Servers store your credential in plain text, wich means is not encrypted, and even if it is, there are webpages, wich i wont mention, that helps to decrypt MD5 and even SHA256. For non-IT people: they can read all your data you input.

 

So, if you put your email, but use a different login, those people might have some info about you in case is your friend (like having him/her at facebook as friend), they can try to bypass the security questions to recover your  password and once they're in, try to enter your WP account, and once they're in, check your IDs of game. After this, its just brute-force with the known password you input on this P.server.

 

The chain and the method may vary, instead a p.server, can be a google doc shared wich needs to ask for permission, once you send an email to the owner, they will get your email there.
 
Sacred things wich dont need to be crossover with any site or service is:
 
  • Your e-mail. This is personal, This is your contact info, and can be use to send you pishing emails or info, or any attack.
  • Your Account ID. obviously, bruteforce can be a really issue nowadays, and its so easy to change the attacker IP.
  • Your password. Even for me its hard, but its necesarry to use always a different password. Even I have to remember more than 15 different password, wich, are in some way linked, the way they are linked its just known by me as the info that helps me to remember. In case i forgot some password, I just repeat the process i set for my passwords and get it (the process and the info used is only known by me).
 
How to know if your email were pwned? there are sites for that, Use at your own risk, but this site https://haveibeenpwned.com/ tells you if its recommended to change your email password. It has link to many DBs leaked in some internet services.
 
ALWAYS ALWAYS check for HTTPS connection with a valid cert. On WP login page should see the secure thing in green like this:

On Firefox you can see the cert:

Hope those advices plus the camps ones help people of not being scammed.
 
Regards!

NEW Scam


If you read the first post in this thread, you would see that this scam is not new at all. You're just a new victim.

Greetings BlackPig,

Thank you for the heads up. The user in question (novice class) has been reported to the GM staff, they are trying to pass as CM Oda which is a scam.

The Community managers and GM staff will never approach users in that manner.
