    Watch out for an ava named <removed name>. He approaches players trying to gather personal information from them and what he is really after is the phone number. I don't know what comes after the phone number, because I couldn't keep playing along at that point, as I didn't want to give him my real phone number (yes, he actually calls and verifies). He says that he has another ava called <removed name>, so if you get approached by that one too, be cautious and I would advise against giving your phone number to him or anyone you have known for 5min or less (in RL or elsewhere).

    Have fun and stay safe!

    I really doubt that <removed name>feels so lonely to ask for numbers at Hub ;)

    Anyway, who really would be silly enough to disclose their RL numbers in game, even if offered a night of love with the whole MA team at their castle at Dresden :beerchug:

    I'm guessing just a newbie pissed off going to the hub that he needed to create an account and make this fast post here to try to get the other person banned? :)

    Allright - done with all the accusations!

    @Temp007 - Thanks for warning people. I'm sure you did it with the best intentions. But the best thing to do in such situation is to take screenshots and mail them to MindArk support. They can see all chat logs and can deal with the matter, in case there's something 'fishy' going on.

    @the others - no need to harass a new person for trying to help.

    I took the liberty to remove the person's names from the first post - without any fair proofs, this can hurt a persons reputation more than it can help.

    Until then - thread is locked.
    Thank you
