Online Gaming Scam

     Currently, there is a vicious scam going on in online games. There are people who claim to be members of the game staff who contact players promising to give them valuable in-game benefits for being "loyal players." The catch is that in order to gain these rewards, the player has to give the scammer their password.

     Once the scam artist has his victim's password, they change the password, freezing the victim out of his account. The scam artist now has a well built up position in the game without having to put in the time required to honestly achieve that position.

     I've known several folks who were victimized this way. Don't you be next.
