Just wanted to share my story so other folks won’t be fooled. I’d like to think of myself as pretty smart, heck, I do have a college degree, but that didn’t mean diddly-squat when I fell into this scammer’s trap. And trap it was.
I’m minding my own business using the Shop Wiz to find me a relatively inexpensive orn codestone. I was hoping to find one under 3,000 NP. Guess what, I did, 2300 NP, I’ll take it! I clicked on the username and it took me to their shop. Well, their shop has lots of codestones, but not for 2300, but for 500 NP!! What a dope, I’m thinking, so I quickly click on a codestone before someone else discovers these treasures. Well, instead of getting a little box asking me if I’m sure I want to pay 500 NP, I suddenly get pop-ups popping up all over the place which distracts me. When I get rid of the boxes, I have a new screen. It’s the official Neopets sign-in page, so I’m thinking I got kicked out of the system, and I’m also thinking I got to hurry and get those cheap codestones. WRONG. Turns out what looked identical to the sign-in page of Neopets wasn’t really authentic. (Not that anyone could tell) I discover all this the next day when I go to get on Neopets and my account is frozen. As soon as I signed in that screen disappeared. I have no way to remember who it was.
