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.
Yes, it's even written here : http://www.urban-rivals.com/staff/contactus.php
"Do not hesitate to report players with whom you've had an unfortunate encounter. A feature for safe exchange will be added in the future. In the meantime, it's up to you."
It's sad to see that players still are getting scammed, and even worse that people are scamming. It is very sad to see people ruining for others, and even making it worse for themselves...
I got three rules when it comes to passwords...
1) Never, ever, give out your password.
2) I mean it, NEVER, EVER give out your password
3) If you didn't understand the above, NEVER, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES GIVE OUT YOUR PASSWORD.
That are my three golden rules. :]
It's unbelievable that many people are fallin' of tricks like : " gimme your account name and password and i'll make your credits 200"
isn't that obviously a scam???
look what i found , i'm sure that many people falled for this but isn't is obvious that this is scam??
*SCAM*"" I am a old time hacker and have tons of codes like set your own amount of clintz and 5 lvls per day and picking 10 cards from my online deck i have all cards doubled 10 times if you want what i got send username and password to firstname.lastname@example.org "" *SCAM END*
look the e-mail he edited for this reason only ..to steal peoples cards
also don't try to trade accounts of other games with accounts of UR because they'll also try to steal you
Silverton, yes, many people do actually read them, including me.
More scams? sheesh, why would you scam anyone? -.-
If you get scammed it's actually that players fault for being to guallable.
Although there is a chance you can get your cards back.
To ensure that you do not get scammed you can -
1- NEVER give out your password.
2- When trading ask a mod / admin to watch over it if you do not trust the trader.
3- Do not visit sites saying "Urban Rivals - Free Credit Codes" or something like that.
4- Use your common sense.
If you follow that your chances of getting scammed decrease. (which is a good thing).
