Fake Login Pages:
This is probably the oldest scam there is and it’s totally obvious. Say you want to log in to Neopets. And then you go to the login page. If the URL isn’t http://www.neopets.com ITS FAKE! If you would like to see an example of a fake login page, go to http://www.neopetz.com. Sometimes, after you enter your info and your account is bye-bye, you’ll see a message such as this, HAHAHAH I SCAMMED YOU! I say it’s extremely hilarious but I don’t want it to happen to me. ;D
There is a 99.99% chance that you have absolutely NO IDEA who I am, and I don’t blame you, really. My username is fiddelysquat, and I’m setting about the task of making Neopia a better place. I plan to do this not by reporting every scammer and freezing every hacker, I plan to educate Neopets players. Please, don’t hit the back button just yet: I plant to teach you some lessons not only valuable on Neopets, but valuable in life outside of Neopia.
People are always writing articles that simply list the ways of being scammed, and telling you not to fall for them. I have yet to see an article that answers the single most important question a human being can ask. Why? Why is it impossible to generate neopoints? Why cant there be a program out there that multiplies items and such? Being the inquisitive young girl I am, I set about to find out for all of you.

Neopets advises you to NEVER give out your password. While this holds true, there are also several other ways to get scammed that do NOT involve handing out your password.
A “Scam” is defined as a “fraudulent business scheme”. So in other words, a scam is just someone trying to take advantage of you. This guide is designed to help you hold your hard-earned neopoints, and not give them to some slimy Joe’s who’ll deceive and trick for an extra buck.
