Archives For Scamming Guides

I have been on Neopets for 2 years now and have seen every trick in the book of how people try to scam and hack. Just recently hacking and scamming has become more common and even easier to fall for. This article points out the majority, if not all the ways not to get scammed or hacked and to keep your account safe. Scams are pretty easy to pick up on, if it’s too good to be true it really is. Usually it will be a fake login screen where you have to retype your password, or they will change their prices at the last second and you will end up paying more than you bargained for so keep your wits about you. Other typical scams are buying ‘raffle tickets’ to win a bigger prize, or bidding a lot on a cheap item in a trading post to receive a more expensive item. And trust me, no one will give you 1 million np or 10 baby paint brushes so don’t believe it. Also NEVER change your email address if someone asks you to.

Don’t we all just hate those scammers? Don’t we want to rip their heads off and stuff it in the garbage can (sorry about “graphic” description ;)? Well, my friends, one of my friends who played Neopets was a scammer, and got frozen like water in the tundra. While watching him play, I learned the tactics of a scammer and how they really work. Scammers strategies are so basic, I enjoy thinking of ways to make fun of them. How to insult them in instant messenger. How to take glory as they look in your account and discover absolutely nothing because you are nothing but a newbie, and suddenly they freeze and cry to their mommies. So, read on and discover how to LIKE meeting scammers on AOL Instant Messenger.

I know that if you have never been scammed it seems impossible that it could happen to you, but it can. I was never very careful about keeping my password secret until my account was finally stolen. Even if it seem unlikely that you will be scammed I suggest that you follow these tips:

1) NEVER tell your password to anyone, even if they say they will give you items, np, etc. (I know everyone always says this but its really important)

2) If you suspect anyone of being a scammer report them immediately

3) Change your password often (at least once a month) and don’t make it something obvious like the month, your screen name, or your name. It is best to have a password that contains both letters and numbers.

Hi. My name is Dreamer4284, a faithful Neopian. Although you probably dont know me, I am here to tell you my story. It is long, so sit back and relax.

One fine Sunday morning, I was chatting with my friend on AIM. We were having a good time, when all of a sudden she starts laughing! She said that she was chatting with a scammer, and was having a little *fun* with them. So, I decided that I wanted to have a bit of fun myself. So I asked her for the screen name, and she told me it was FlyBabi5. Then, my friend told me that the PERSON WHO SHE WAS CHATTING WITH HAD SAID SHE WAS GUCCI_MAMA and guess what I had just read that morning: yup, that is right the article here on pinkpoogletoy about the girl who had gotten scammed by this same person. Obviously, the same scammer goes around telling people that she is gucci_mama, when she is plainly not, just so it looks like she has a lot. That REALLY made me want to have a word with this loser. So, I began to chat.

***In the world of Neopia, there are many bad Neopians. They use these specified scams to trick innocent users into nothing.***

Fake Login Pages/Shop Scam

These are probably the oldest scams in the book. Lets say you’re browsing a shop. You see a codeston/faerie/negg for a very cheap price. You click on it and are brought to the Neopets homepage. Actually, you’re not. Usually, when this happens its a fake login page. If the URL at the top doesnt start with, it’s fake. DON’T ENTER YOUR INFORMATION!!! It could be the end of your precious account!!! Just go back to the shop and report it. Badda-bing Badda-boom. All done.
