Scamming- here is a full conversation that usually goes on between scammers and their victims. I did this as a test to show you that scammers can do this in a number of ways. Do not believe this, it was a trick I played on a scammer, showing that I was interested in what he told me. I am *~*Rio*~*, and he is kenny9905. Please be careful, this is what happened.

1. Definitions

Scammer: A person who swindles you by means of deception or fraud.

Hacker: One who uses programming skills to gain illegal access to a computer network or file.

Computer Program: A series of instructions that a computer can interpret and execute; programs are also called software to distinguish them from hardware, the physical equipment used in data processing. These programming instructions cause the computer to perform arithmetic and logical operations or comparisons (and then take some additional action based on the comparison) or to input or output data in a desired sequence. In conventional computing the operations are executed sequentially; in parallel processing the operations are allocated among multiple processors, which execute them concurrently and share the results. Programs are often written as a series of subroutines, which can be used in more than one program or at more than one point in the same program.^—> *I found this meaning to be the most elaborate and understandable* <—

Hackers and scammers run freely around the web…
Hackers and scammers are everywhere! Think they don’t exist, think again! They are in fact, VERY real, and they do just what you think they do. Trick you, and steal your hard earned NP, and items. They are very smart, and very slick. And believe me, you DON’T want to be part of their terrible plans. Stay away from hackers, and scammers!

How can I be safe and alert?
Sometimes, hackers and scammers are pretty sneaky. And pretty tempting. But, how can you be up to date on the latest and greatest ways to be safe? Who can help you and give you excellent peace of mind? Well, I made this site for this exact reason. To help innocent Neopians, like yourself, from being hacked and scammed.

Hi folks! I just want to share an experience I had with a scammer.

My neopets username is crystalfire254. Well, it was until a “friend” of mine stole all of my neopoints. I’d had a neopets account before, so knew all about the importance of restocking, playing the games, etc. Plus, my older sister had gotten bored with Neopets and gave me all her neopoints. So, in quite a short time, I had 500,000np. I had just heard about the upcoming war and told the friend who referred me to neopets (the one who took all of my NP) she might want to start training her pets.
