Perma Ban Scam (echo)

I always thought for a scam to be efficient, the scammer needs to at least be able to speak decent English. 

Actually, the broken english can be part of the plan: it means that cleverer people, who won't fall for the scam anyway, are more likely to ignore the person rather than engage with them making it less likely that they will a) get reported to Ankama or b) counter-scammed. It also means that the people they do get responding are more likely to fall for a scam.

 

Lvl 200 (Omega 4x) osa.  Guild: Sunrising (probably relatively temporary?) kicked. -I'm currently inactive. - Alliance: Idk, but usually ends up being CYGNI/Cygnus. rip doesn't exist anymore lol 

With lv 140 rogue as an alt. On Echo (was Shika). Also a noob lv 8x Iop on Wakfu, member of Storm Troopers on Remington (if it still exists, haven't checked in a while)  kicked

Add me on steam (Sommanker) and Battle.net (Sommanker#2834) and Discord (Sommanker#1592). I play a multitude of other games.

It's rather amusing to see how bad these scammers are.
Not to be that guy and all, but anyone who falls for these scams deserves it.

Nothing like a little adversity to serve as a life lesson.
One of the many problems with this stupid server merge.

I don't think those methods would be applicable in this situation because the guy has already chosen his targets (everyone around the magus WS got the same PM, including me) and getting reported is a non-factor for these people, setting up another stealth account takes 2 minutes. Most of these types of scams are done by French people who come over here because their methods no longer work well on French servers thus their English is mostly bad.

 

Methods similar the above are generally used in scams that require more human interaction. I'll give a prime example that almost everyone can understand: Why do you think the whole "I am a Nigerian prince"/whatever scam is still around? Because nearly all people who are aware of scams on the internet are aware of the Nigerian prince meme, so the story filters out the people who wouldn't be very likely to fall for it because the process is quite long and they milk these people over and over.

 

Plenty of intelligent people fall for email scams although not at this basic level. A few years ago a security company which I forget the name of held a contest to see if anyone could hack them, someone sent the CEO an email with a hyperlink saying "I won the contest: here's proof"

that link contained a remote admin exploit: boom hacked. Many of the greatest hacks in history have required some form of social engineering.

The guy pretended to send me screenshots of me allegedly being a scammer. Links were fake grabify mirrors of gyazo/imgur and according to URL analysis, both contained viruses. They were later changed to link to google.be . Be careful when dealing with this person.

Well, at least he listens to requests. Ask him for a pornhub link next!

Those links are from a popular IP/useragent grabbing website with custom redirection. They're not created by the actor. It's often used for script kiddie phishing campaigns or to get the victims IP to DDoS them. Any decent AV will detect those links though (Kaspersky MBAM would be my recommendation) and unfortunately, they don't have a Pornhub link.

Recently came back and I've noticed that the amount of scammers has risen, even from after the merge. People "trading kamas", "deactivating shields" apart from the retarded scam attempts posted above. This is actually out of control. During the evening you're guaranteed to see a couple of the above scams advertising in the chat without a care in the world. We really do need a mod or two, or alternatively a goddamn report button.

This is nothing compared to what Rushu was like back in 1.x days. Foreigners attempting to scam with phishing links left and right. Wouldn't be surprising if one of the current phishers just kept changing the domains, text in '/c,' dm's' to obtain accounts. Usually, after obtaining a victim's account, not only do they take the gear, but also keep sending the links to their friends and in community chat. It may seem like a lot of people are doing it, but I think it's just a few.

*puts on detective hat & coat*

 

Surely the guy is pretending to speak broken English. Looks obvious as fuck if you ask me. "singed" .. my French is shit, for example, but if I was trying to scam frenchies, I wouldn't say "Saltu, done gear por goultramintaor". Looks like a poor attempt at masking the players talking patterns, just like I sound like me when writing. 

 

Makes me wonder who that is. Must be someone with a good reputation, otherwise there would be no point hiding.
