We inform you that since a few days one or more smart alecks send links toward phishing websites.
Those links send you to false prize draw webpages. They may have different URL's, but none of them is official. The only one Prize draw you all know is this one: http://www.urban-rivals.com/tombola/
Do not fall into the trap of those links even if you receive a message that seems to come from the staff. For more details about those links, please have a look on the Force Majeure's corresponding topic : http://www.urban-rivals.com/community/forum/?mode=viewsubject&forum_page=&id_subject=767334&subject_page=0
Unfortunately one of our numerous moderators has felt into the trap ; we had to lock his account and wait for explanations.
If you receive a message which seems suspicious, please contact the customer support and wait for one of our administrator's reply.
Please forward this topic to your guilds, your friends, etc.
As a last note, please do no forget that the UR staff would NEVER ask for your password.
Thank you for reading this.
We wish you all a good day.
I'm suprised that people are still falling for these scams.
Kinda shocked that a mod was tricked by one, they should know that it a scam.
Also, glad to see you warning people of these sites.
Wow.. i would have thought moderators were smarter than that...
Who was the moderators?
and there is no point of making sites like this because you hack the account and your ip will be traced, then you get banned
you ruin your ur life and others too
It's nice to see a fresh thread made by the staff, but I don't see why my efforts to help people become aware of this problem was disregarded and deleted. But as long as the word is spread, all's good.
Seriously? Making clintz / credits is so easy these days that you could afford a CR. One of the strategies is just to use the confirm link for directTV offer in sponser pay.
I fell for something similar to this, but with another online game, promising an updated server.
What a fail i am. I fell for the similar attack when i was 7. How come so many people fall for this now?
Im guessing the majority of people here are over the age of 15.
Youl get a link to the "prize draw", and what would happen then?
Poor mod... I'll keep my eyes out. Scammers will never get me! Meanwhile, I'll participate in your secret second lottery. Oh, and it says that all you need to do is enter your password, username, address, credit card information, and time you will be out of your house and can be easily robbed. Well, it is a small price to pay for a second lottery! ...Wait a minute.
