Audacious Scammer

Postby Konrad » Tue Oct 22, 2013 2:39 pm

This particular ploy is so ridiculous that I've considered posting this in "Off Topic", given it's so unconvincing that it poses little threat to us (Mods, feel free to relocate this). Anyway, a certain "Risa01" presented me with this lovely proposition:

Buying 1000000 kilometres from me for $2 billion. If only I had that much mileage on me...

Then, he offers to buy $1 billion for $2 billion, a fantastic exchange rate:

I am sceptical and lost by the scheme's deep mechanics, so he reassures me of its simplicity and efficacy.
Apparently, he's now a fine furniture dealer:

Kilometres, dams and furniture. His sales pitch falls apart. I put it down to nerves.

0/10 Would not buy his furniture.

I can still read your name you blurred out.

I am going to PM it to you, as this is more for a warning purpose to proove you shouldn't blur and instead use an opaque feature.

Also we can all obviously see the content of your inventory, the blur is very ineffective.

Oh. :oops:
But opaque features are ugly :| I guess "form follows function" rings true here.
Thanks for the tip though.

This is kinda irrelevant so I won't go in depth, but I like opaque!

It looks like it roy... But i can attest for MrPooeyPies. He is a good person, and i've seen no weird behavior from him. I like the dude, and this seems out of character for him. Maybe he was just trolling, or got hacked. Who knows.

For those not aware... Common courtesy is to avoid removing the veil (no matter how poorly it is) from the character that took the time to blur out their name.

Still don't see why he blurred it out though. If he is a scammer then everyone should see, someone should just try asking him because PooeyPies has never come off like that to me. Maybe a younger sibling or something got a hold of his computer while he was away, it's happened to me before.

...Didn't think it was actually possible to burst a blood vessel on such a trivial matter... First off, Risa01 is the one on the chopping block, not this guy as you keep referring. The one you refer to is the one who sent in the report that didn't want someone to trace their in-game account to their forums game.

Yeah, I was wondering why people were talking about the blurred out person being the scammer. Thought I was going crazy lol. :cry:

Can someone find the ultimate facepalm picture? I'm kinda lazy.
The ONLY scammer is Risa01.
Had you read the original post or anything that was said within that same post... I feel this would be clear.

It's no problem. Konrad doesn't seem to mind much (as he hasn't commented, though there's not much he could say) so I figure I have no right to do so.
