There have been several reports of attempted scamming lately. Anyone asking for your password is trying to rob you. This cannot be emphasized enough. Here are a couple of scamming methods to watch out for...
I am a moderator. I need your password so I can inspect / add something to(cards, clintz, credits) your account.
NO ONE on the Urban Rivals staff will ever ask for your password. If something needs to be added to your account, the Admins do not need your password to do so. The same applies if your account needs to be checked for activity of any kind.
Take this survey and we'll give you free credits/clintz/cards. Just give us your account name and password so we know where to put them.
No website that offers free credits/clintz/cards is sponsored by Urban Rivals. If you see an offer like this, it is almost certainly a scam.
Again, do not, for any reason, give your password to anyone.
There is a high chance of players getting hacked if they are not careful.
Just remember, don't share your password to anybody... and I really mean ANYBODY. Even your relatives shouldn't share your account with you.
You should also use a very strong password. Passwords such as "123456789", "abcdefg" or using your username as your password is very easy to hack so never use them.
You'll be amazed at the number of people that fall for these nasty tricks.
A promise of free clintz/credits/cards is a very good way to fool people. Who wouldn't want to get free stuff?
But needless to say, these promises are empty promises. There are no ways you can get things free by giving people your account name and password.
There's a first time for any scammer. If each dishonest person tried to scam once it'd probably... well.. it'd probably be exactly what it is now.
You'd be surprised how eager people are to give their password to someone. Even non-scammers. Some people are interested in telling their mate, friend, or sibling their password. It's best to just keep your stuff as YOUR stuff. If things go bad later you could get trouble coming with this. Don't share an account because for all you know one day you and 'they' may get in an arguement or something. Most people are pretty much jackasses when angry and would eagerly change the password on you. That's only one example of course, but a very good one. Even people you trust shouldn't know your password.
