    Wow, that's a lame scammer..

    I was in the Emporium the other day and some gal came up to me dressed in a pirate girl shirt, red miniskirt, black ears, and black HM shoes. She asked me to trade and said, "I am vmk staff, we need some items from you." (her username was something like x) I said, "Staff doesn't ask for items," and ended the trade.

    So, MC, hath this ever happened to thee? Or is this a weird scam?

    Wow!! That's just ridiculous for someone to imitate staff. Hope she gets caught trying to do this to innocent ppl. You might want to take her name out of original post...it could get you in trouble.

    Never happened to me, but that's completely against VMK Values - hope you reported them!

    I've seen worse and stupider ideas. :P But yeah, some people just aren't very creative when it comes to scamming.

    And yeah, that's a serious offence and that person will be banned permanently and immediately if caught by staff. If there's one thing all staff hate, it's players impersonating them. They take that VERY seriously. Every staff member I've seen come across a situation like that goes into killer attack mode. Heh!

    That's weird. I had a situation similar to that but after I reported, the person didn't get banned. The message I got back just said "If you're having a problem with another player, just click the ignore button." That makes me wonder where's the line between someone just hitting the ignore button or an actual ban?

    I have come across many people pretending to be staff. I find the best thing to do is report them, and then keep them talking so they dont leave the room, then normally in the middle of them talking they suddenly disappear

    Re: Wow, that's a lame scammer..

    Eeek. I've had something like that happen to me ... Of course i didn't believe the person. Once my friend dressed up like staff...[Note:She did not ask anyone for anything] she was just trying to be funny...i suppose. She said "Your banned!" for fun, we all knew she was joking around but we also told her she might want to change and stop before something happens. When she was afk... VMK_Bubbles (or something like that) came in and asked for her. We didn't know why she wanted her at first, but then we realized why and told her, that is something she wont be doing Anymore She loves the VMK values and respects them greatly, it was just simple and harmless fun

    you can always report someone without clicking on their character:

    If it's their room you can click room (i) and click report or you can click the help button and click call for help.
