>So I was reading the scammer articles on PPT one day and I read the one about having fun with scammers. I liked the concept so I went on the Neopets chat board and sure enough, there was neorich744frozen, posting I have a program that will unfreeze ur old account. Inside it read AIM likedude88. And so I did. I copied and pasted the conversation here. My comments are in parentheses and italic.
Horsegurl730: hey u said u knew how to freeze scammers?
likedude88: i have to get on ur new account so i can get the nitsite of ur old one to unfreeze it.
Horsegurl730: whats that?
likedude88: its like a neoepts ip addy
Horsegurl730: whats an ip addy?
likedude88: its ur computers address
likedude88: so want me to do it?
(Scammers always get right to the point)
Horsegurl730: uhh…well i dunno there are just so many scammers u never no who to trust..
likedude88: i need ur pass
(NEVER EVER EVER give out your password)
likedude88: to do it
likedude88: so if u think im a scammer
likedude88: dont give me ur pass
(Interesting, scammers dont usually take this approach)
Horsegurl730: well but then it wont work..
Horsegurl730: i really loved my old account
Horsegurl730: u said u had a program right?
Horsegurl730: where did u get it?
likedude88: i made it
Horsegurl730: really..thats cool
Horsegurl730: so then couldnt u just send it to me??
likedude88: do u want it or npt
Horsegurl730: y cant u send it?
likedude88: its not a via-file
Horsegurl730: but..all programs can be sent..
likedude88: not a bdm file
likedude88: a via can
(What the heck??All programs can be sent, period. As you can see, Im no computer expert, so if you know what hes talking about, neomail me.)
Horsegurl730: what language is it?
(Note the bad spelling. This guys obviously knows NOTHING, because Im talking about computer language, not regular language, a tactic I picked up form a PPT scammer story)
Horsegurl730: could u xplain it to me so i can do it?
likedude88: i cant lol
likedude88: i created it
Horsegurl730: y not?
likedude88: cause i created it
Horsegurl730: what does that have to do w/ anything?
likedude88: HOW CAN U DO IT IF U DONT HAVE IT?
Horsegurl730: u could explain it and hten i could try to do it nyself
likedude88: no becaseu i created the program
likedude88: u dont have it
likedude88: i cant send it to u
Horsegurl730: hold on i’ll brb
(I was actually watering the plants at this point, but it was meant to sound like I was reporting him.)
likedude88: u want it or not
Horsegurl730: i looked @ the rules and it says using programs freezes u
likedude88: well they do unless u dont get caugt L)
(You will always get caught using a program, never use programs on neopets)
Horsegurl730: but they said u will always get caught
likedude88: they lie lol
Horsegurl730: what do i have to do
likedude88: ur user name>?
(An old account which was frozen years ago. It might be nice to have it back but)
(Once again never give out your password to ANYONE)
Horsegurl730: what password???ur never supposed to give out ur password!
likedude88: bye then
Horsegurl730: well cant u do w/o it?
likedude88: i have to get on ur new account so i can get the nitsite
Horsegurl730: but how could my new account have anything to do w/ my old one?
likedude88: THE NITSITE
Horsegurl730: plus ive heard SO many scammer stories…how could i no that ur not 1?
Horsegurl730: i love my account i would DIE if i was scammed!
(Bad spelling AGAIN, scammers are sooo predictable)
likedude88: its doenst matter to me if u get it or not
Horsegurl730: fine w/e
likedude88: if u want it msg me back with ur iser and pass
Horsegurl730: well…could u just tell me about the nitsite?i really need to understand this b4 i go through w/ it!
likedude88: ok u know what a ip addy is
Horsegurl730: not really..
likedude88: neopets has a ip addy on everypnes account its just like if i can get on ur nitsite then i can ride thorhg to ur other ccount and un freeze it
(What is he talking about)(At this point I had come to the conclusion that ip addy was a load of dung)
Horsegurl730: i’ve never heard of that b4
likedude88: since u think its a scam bye
Horsegurl730: o well it is u were reported bye
And so ends another day of scam busting. I now know how fun it is to play with scammers heads, so I am devoted to skimming chat rooms for scams.
