Well, They can hack your account, and sell all of your things... Or buy random things with your KC

If they find out your password, they can hack your account. Also, sometimes trading room scams occur, I am not sure how but people do find a way occasionally. And umm....that's really all I know of. Lot's of times it's just glitches that get to ya.

Default Re: Help, about Scammers!

Here are some scams that I can name:

1. Asking for someones password

2. Going to a random profile and asking someone to go to your thread

3. Being rude

4. Saying bad words

5. Advertising a website that you can buy something from it and spend money but get something cheap or nothing

I would name more, but I can't think of them. Hope this helped!

There are several ways to have things taken...
(a) In the Clubhouse trading room
(b) Someone gets your username and hacks in
(c) Someone gets a pet code and hacks in
(d) Someone gets your password and hacks in
(e) You trade on a different site and get scammed.

As for trading by mail, it can be unsafe on other sites, but here on WI it is perfectly safe

Maybe It is possible to *hack* Into a GANZ workers' account, and use administrative settings... or something like that . Maybe they just get your username or find a place where your username is... I don't know much about the subject; I'm not a hacker .
