How to identify a scammer

Unfortunately, there are plenty of scammers in Neopia. And I was unfortunate enough to run into some of these people, but luckily I didn’t get scammed. Sometimes in shops: If the here icon to report the shop is right next to the username, it’s a scam. And sometimes people will scam you by neomail. Chain letters aren’t as bad a scam though, as ones directly asking for your password. Remember: Neopets will never ask for your password via e-mail OR neomail. One scammer I met couldn’t even spell Faerie right…*shakes head* Remember that Neopets can also spell it’s own words. Also, sometimes it’s good to put two and two together to see if you’re being scammed. One time, I put one of my rarest items up for trade. Then, I got a neomail asking for my username and password from contests2000, who is now frozen. Here’s the two and two together: I had a rare item up for trade, and I got a neomail asking for my username and password. Remember to be careful, but have fun too! – ajrcz@allways.net
