reporting scammers in the mmorgp games arena

xwishmasterxxwishmasterx nocityherePosts: 6Member

Hello

I am a D3 player (and in the past played a variety of mmorpg games), and had enough of those darn scammers.

Although there's already a Scammer list for D3, I have created a simple site for reporting scammers for more games.

I am writing this post simply for feedback (good or bad idea?, is it usefull? , what games would you like see listed? etc.)

url should be in my signature

    For fun? For the art of hacking? It is an easy target.

    I mean even if it was hacked, what would the worse scenario be? since backup is easy I can't see what information a hacker could use, or anything that cannot be restored.

    it's not a bad idea.  they would just have to change their gamer tag though.  you should add planetside 2. 

    I think the prostitute mod corrupted your game files man. -elhefen

    I will add that asap. I am not familiar with that game, so not sure how easy it is to change "gamer tag" :)

    They can use the machine to mass mail spam.

    They can use the machine as a launching point for attacks on others (as part of a botnet or stand alone).

    They can use the machine to store illegal content (pirated software, porn, etc)

    Restoring the web site alone is not good enough.  You have no idea what back doors were left.

    “There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe for a vast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly discerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobody's expense but his own.”
