He battled ferocious storms, he braved chilling odds and he ran the whole 9 yards to bring you what we know as Neopets today. But do you really know who Adam really is? In a Pink Poogle Toy exclusive, we chased after Adam, we badgered him with relentless phone calls and we dogged his every move, until he finally gave in and gave us this up-close-and-personal interview, where we dig until there is nothing left to dig for, and we uncover astounding secrets about Adam. But if you think that’s all, just wait until you see what Adam revealed about the Neopets crew and the game history! For instance, did you know that we could have been playing Varmints?

Interview With a Scammer 2

Recently, I borrowed some of your interview question to interview myself. I feel that it’s very helpful in determining some of the events that occurred during the past on neopets.com such as the reasoning of what caused outside URLs to be blocked. Please read my interview.

Q. How long have you been scamming on Neopets?
About three and a half years. (Late 2001.)

Q. Why did you begin scamming on Neopets? Were you a once-victim or did you fall on it for the sheer thrill of scamming?
Just as any player, I too began playing the virtual website and began to realize how entertaining it was too me. Moreover, I began spending more and more time on the website and thus became a neopets-addict. One day, I discovered a glitch for the Fruit Machine Gamea simple refresh and youd win a prizeeasy eh? Well, this of course caught up with me, and I was frozen. Sad, but willing to still play the site, I created a new account. Just as any player might do, I began searching the wiz for any low-priced such as battle weapons, paintbrushes, –basically any catch I could get. One day, I searched the wizard for a Blue Paint Brush for an unusual price of 2 nps. Hard to believe that after entering the shop, the item was there, I clicked the item, and was led to a fake-login page. I wasnt familiar with fake-login pages, so I entered my login information and was led to Pet Central. Unusual, I figured that the staff must have logged everyone off the site. I went to my inventory only to discover that the item I attempted to purchase wasnt there, and concluded I was too little too late. I went on to say, Ill try my luck next time. Moments later, I was logged out of my account and attempted to log-in, etc. etc Eventually realized that I was scammed.

Interview With a Scammer

The following is an interview I had with a scammer. He/she contacted me after reading the scammed section on the site, praising PPT, but also wanting to contribute to the compilation of articles in relation to scamming. The main concern, that most of the scams presented on PPT did not know how to spell correctly. This interview however, gives us an insight into why a person may scam. What leads a person to scamming and how some people scam. Whatever you may read this for, this interview holds within itself important information on how not to get scammed.

Spotlight on Dave

Hi Dave! Tell us a bit about yourself! How did you get your name? What makes you tick? What makes you happy? What’s the most random thing you’ve done?

I’m 14, and I talk. That’s all there is to it! My name has a deep spiritual meaning. It means, “Amazingly attractive person who will grow up to make millions and give out over 4,000 autographs a day.” Okay, not really. To be honest I’m not really sure how I got my name!

I’m easily amused. Give me internet and I’m happy. I also believe that comfy chair + TV + your own can of Pringles = happiness.
