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.

Here’s a few list of ways people can scam you out of NP, into your account, or make your account freeze:

1. They can just ask you for your password

Never give your password to anyone even if 1 million people say that he REALLY will give you NP, Items, Etc.

2. They can ask you to change your e-mail

Never change your e-mail address to a address you don’t own. Ppeople can try to trick you and say; change your e-mail to draggoondc@hotmail.com and then send a mail to it saying “NP____(ammont of NP wanted) USERNAME________ (Username there)”; and then first they know that the username you put in there changed there e-mail address to draggoondc@hotmail.com so they will type your username in the “forgot password box” and then they get a e-mail with all your password details, easy eh?

Remember BabyBlue12988 who scammed a user earlier this year? Well BabyBlue12988 is still on the loose and still very much using the same scam to scam other users. Recently, some members from the PPT Forums all joined a chat room, and invited BabyBlue12988 to trick her into scamming them. However, we all know of course that they would never give her their real usernames and/or passwords but rather, just to play with BabyBlue12988 a bit and annoy here. The following is a transcript of what occurred.

Here’s the log when we tricked her: People who participated in tricking this scammer (all PPT users): Dzyh/CragHack90), janiejanie(Janie Janiee), FourScore(HKdragon8 ), Usugi_Raichu(StarFirefly26)

Most people give you advice on how not to get scammed and what to do if you do get scammed

Well I am here to tell you what happened to me and how it happened.

If anyone ever asks you for your password then do not even give them you password for your other account you do not use.

I got scammed on the Trading Post. I knew it was a scam so I thought I would check it out just to make sure, the one important thing I did not do is report the person or remember the name of the person, always remember the scammers name or the person will keep getting away with it.

Scammers – a Neopian’s ememy. They are everywhere, and when you least expect them to be there – they are.

Scammers have one job in mind, to take your account, to mess you up, to make you upset. Do not let them do this to you.

You decide to go to the neoboards, and you see a board titled “Quitting Neopets” or something of that sort. As you wonder about the board and enter it, you see that it says something like, “Quitting Neopets! I have painted pets, paintbrushes, and 1,000,000 neopoints! Tell me if you want it!” Once you see this, click the link that says report this board. This is a scammer. If you go for it, they will ask for your password to ‘check out’ your account to see if you are ‘suitable for such an account’. Then, like what once happened to me, your account is out of your hands and into the scammers.
