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.

How can you spot a scammer? Well if you have a keen eye and a good instinct then your set. Here are a few ways that I’ve figured out how to spot a scammer.

NAMES: One way you can spot a scammer is by their name. Most of the time a scammer just types in a bunch of letters not even caring how it comes out, (ex. asdlfkjsdfj) Or they type in just a few letters or numbers randomly, (ex. asdf1234). Sometimes they might repeat just one letter or two or three, (ex. fdsfdsfds)…

TROPHYS: Another way to check if they’re a scammer is going to look at all the game that they have played. Most of the time a scammer has first place in almost all the games or they have the same number of score, (ex. 150000) for every game listed. They might not have a trophy for that game but it says that they are in first place on the games list.

Hello everyone, I am the Basilisk, and I am a scammer.

Woah, put the knife down! While I do spend my time trying to cheat hapless children out of their neopoints and items, Im afraid my conscience has been bothering me of late. That, and earning millions this way have become far too easy. So, in a remarkable display of kindness and generosity from someone with such a villainous neoprofession, Im going to tell you why I scam, why others scam, and what you can do to stay out of our little password snares.

First off, why do people scam in the first place? The most obvious reason is, of course, the neopoints. Many n00bs decide that the best thing to do with their pathetic young neolives is to get others to give them their neopoints. But this isnt the only reason to scam. Some scammers are neopets veterans, to whom the game has become bland and unchallenging, despite the new features arriving every day. To those of us who have played the game for awhile, scamming is that new challenge weve been seeking for so long, another way to play the game. I had half a million before I begun to scam, plenty to get by in Neopia. To me, and to many others, the neopoints that come with the job are just an added bonus.
