Don't be scammed
« on: February 20, 2011 11:49AM »
Do not get scammed by people pretending to be Runedev-Infinity staff

All administrators and moderators on the site will first post to your thread informing you of their intentions on a sale or service. That post will be followed by a pm on the site informing you of what email, msn, or other contact information you will need to know.

So that everyone knows the on site preferred method of transactions is ventrilo, but not everyone has the ability to use ventrilo and we understand this. The second preferred method is over msn. The staff will provide you with an msn contact email to add them from and they will provide that through a pm on site.

Do not even trust msn or emails that say @runedev.info This is not our domain any longer and we can not know to trust anything that might be from there. None of us on the staff here have any access to any @rundev.info emails so do not trust them either.

We will get all of our staff new emails as soon as we are settled on new hosting.

Also

I would like to throw out a quick reminder to our members that you should NEVER EVER trust anyone else so fully that you don't take security precautionarie s. Recently, a "highly trusted" member on our site, the owner of Exposed Talents (MtR), has scammed the members of this site of around $200 and was attempting to steal more through another members account that he had hacked.

This just goes to show that you should ALWAYS take care of your account and any items of value, especially when you give your account to someone else for a service! Remember,

- Always take items of value off of the account before giving it to someone else to do a job.
- Always use a bank pin
- Change your password once every few months, make it a complex password, and don't use the same one on an RS account as you do on the forums
- Don't trust ANYONE with 100% of your confidence.
- When dealing with job services on site, follow the Market rules (yes, I know tl;dr) to the exact letter to avoid being scammed.

We here at Lazy Gamerz hate to see our members get scammed and we do our best to prevent it from happening. Remember, always take the most precautionary measures you can take to avoid losing your hard earned cash.

I received a phishing link to rncape.com or something to login because apparently I had a "botting offense." I had no RS account registered to that email, and it was the one I used to register at Runedev, I believe.

You can only contact me through my msn at

Jcookie42@hotmail.com through MSN Chat.

OR

My Emails for Runedev Directly are:

Fuel.Runedev@live.com
Cook.Runedev@hotmail.com

I am Cook and Cook42.

I would like it to be known, I am here to help Bobbybighoof, and to help the stability of Runedev-Infinity.org

If you find anyone else claiming to be me and aren't using those exact emails, it is a lie and a scam.

Jagex never sends emails for RuneScape, only to recover a password, so NEVER click those links, no matter how legitimate it may seem.
If we miss Kaka for 2days we get a thing called constipation and I don't like that.
