I did a dumb thing.

Postby Jason (186280727) » Sat Feb 09, 2019 6:48 am

So I lost my money to a guy who did an event that was just a fancy spin to win scam.

I thought that people didn't do those anymore because trade logs are tracked. So I was wondering if there was any way I could recover my coins?

I don't think you can get your coins back and I don't know what went down but you decide to go to the event and gamble your money. :eh:
I've been like twice in one of those events, gamble a few coins.... Won and run Forest :haha:

Sorry this happened to you :sad: there's two reasons that these people, keep getting away with scamming, because people fall for it and because they know, they can get away with it. I guess the best thing to do is spread the word, so that others might learn from your mistake :hug:

BVG says they won't reverse trades, but to my surprise, David said they reversed some yocash trades the other day. I think that was different though because it was BVG that got scammed.

But, any kinda gambling is setup so that the host or house wins and the player loses. I wouldn't ever participate because I don't like just handing over my money. If you learned your lesson, consider it a favor not a loss. Gambling as a habit will ensure you are always poor...

Not much left but I guess I can try selling some stuff? I haven't played in a while and there doesn't seem to be a price guide to go by but I'm assuming worth has increased?

I didn't know where to put this but, somebody scammed me. Without my consent somebody named "Isabella Skye' logged into my facebook and gifted all my items to her acc. I had no knowledge of this until I checked , I was blamed for "not getting proper security' but come on now, would you really expect for someone to log onto your facebook and take everything?! NO. I spent 38 dollars in real money ON THIS GAME but they wont reverse it?! I told them what happened and sent them the log to prove it and they havent gotten back to me. But a player (Without knowing my situation) told me that I shouldve been more careful and its my fault that I got scammed and im defeinetly not going to get compinsated. HELP! :'(

how many coins did they take from you? did you willingly give them your log in or did you click on a link for free stuff? it had to be one or the other because no one can simply guess your log in. most times when this happens, it means the victim(you) unknowingly clicked on a phishing link. a phishing link is usually hidden as something free. you click it and it will take you to a fake fb page that you are prompted to log in too. it will look just like the real fb but it is a fake, when you log in, you unknowingly have given your login to them. have you changed your password and email for fb yet?
