    Best ways to scam?

    Not the fastest way to make money, but social engineering is fun. I just recently lead on the whole avatar board by saying that my daughter had lost and FQD in a lend (an old gambit of mine if you've seen the troll thread) and that I needed to bring the guy to justice. They all freaked out and told me not to post his username lest I be frozen, so I told them my daughter really needed it back and if reporting the guy would get me the FQD back. Obviously the answer was no, so a couple of kind souls (suckers) offered to donate one to me, but I kept the game running to long and they grew leery and I missed my opportunity. I tried again last night but they've caught on to me.


    So, what's your favorite scam?

    I used to tell people I needed them to watch my pets when I went on vacation.

    I would make trades in the trading post asking for people to NM me if they were interested.

    I had a whole script written up pretty much, for anything they would say back.

    Essentially I told them I would give them my password, but they needed to give me theirs too because that was only fair.

    It worked surprisingly well back then LOL

    I used to get big stolen Accounts with 300+ avs and go to AC, make a board saying I needed MSPP or BGC lends ;D
    It worked once with a BGC, but they froze me with it xD
    People usually do that...

    I remember I would NM resellers asking if they wanted to buy my SUPER RARE MAGICAL gold chomby plushie. I'd ask like 300k and a lot of people fell for it. Cause it was just a regular gold chomby plushie. I made like 15m over a few weeks

    See, the chomby thing amazes me, everyone on Neo is so cautious. Until you appeal to the emotions, they'll just call you a scammer and report you. That's why you have to lower your ethical standards and tell them your best friend died and reap the sympathy gifts.
