Scamming- here is a full conversation that usually goes on between scammers and their victims. I did this as a test to show you that scammers can do this in a number of ways.

PART ONE: HOW IT BEGAN

I had been playing on neopets for some months, and had good pets (not great, though) and I was doing ok in NP. I fed them and cared for them. All the normal stuff. One day at school, the same friend who referred me to neopets told me about his cousin, who had a way to get peoples’ accounts using fake login pages. At that moment, I wondered. Could I pull something off like that? Of course not. I didn’t even know what HTML was at the time, much less about the creation of the scam…

School was out. I had created other accounts in the past months, one of which that I was very proud of. I had only one pet, seeing as how I had trouble with my other pets, not enough to keep on feeding them and training them. I had created a guild as well. There weren’t many members, yet I was happy. Then…one of those days, I was frozen. Why? For repeating what someone else had said. Of course, it was stupid, yet a simple warning would have been fair. I was annoyed by it for a while. And during that while, I remembered about the scam. Could I pull something off like that? Maybe… I had learned basic HTML thanks to neopets, and I learned how the scam worked thanks to another site that (foolishly) went into detail how the scam worked. And that’s when I began scamming.

So, we’ve all been to Neopets’ chat boards, right? Ever seen a title like this:

I KNOW THIS PAGE WHERE YOU CAN DOUBLE NP!!!!

That is a scam. All they want is your account. *shivers* Scary thought, eh? Well, it scares me too, so I’m going to list all the ways a scammer could “attack”, so to say..

1. Fake login pages. Ever seen a URL like http://www.neopetz.com/ or something? That takes you to a login page that looks like a Neopets login. DO NOT LOG IN. Its fake, meaning that your beloved username and password are going to some psycho scammer. *mutters* Oldest one in the book!

We’ve all seen more than our fair share of ‘I was a scammer. Then I got frozen. Now I’m sorry.’ Well, my story is slightly different, and much more common. I thought some people could profit from reading how a straitlaced guild leader could slip into the recesses of pet trading and conning, loose everything several times, and come out of it with her head high. I am highly ashamed of everything I did, but I want to make my story known. Let the film roll…

The whole thing began in the summer of ’02, roughly a full year after I had started playing. I had 6 pets on two accounts, five painted, one a Poogle. My guild, which shall be known as ‘The Lillipadd’, had about 150 members. Yes, I was at a decent place in Neopia, with almost 700,000 neopoints. Only, I was bored. I had nothing to do, my friends were all at camp, and me, I had the chicken pox for the first time. Grumpy and contagious, I settled down into my bed with my sister’s laptop to use Tombola.
