    So there is a fake Nabin going around. He is particularly unintelligent, so I had a little fun with him.

    I confirmed this image is OK to post with the forum administrator and the real Nabin :)


    This guy is an obvious idiot, so please be smart and don't fall for his scams.


    ENJOY!

    Note: I knew he was a scammer from the very beginning. He is riding around in noobie clothes on a purchased horse, and does not have Nabin's guild tag.

    Classic,

    Please verify my Guild Tag and ICQ me you all know the number.

    I appreciate those who ping me when he shows up.

    If you are contact by him please tell him to quit harassing you and your shard by scamming people in my name then page on him for Verbal harassment. Then just ignore him.

    Since I refuse to listen to or meet any demands from a scammer that they would offer to stop (I consider it Blackmail) he might be around for awhile.

    He will go away sooner or later

    Only one comment from my site: While I find it ok to bring betrayers to justice also that way, you should change your journal colors to something darker - these are too hard to read. (I can't)
    Thanks

    Sorry all.

    You can just use http://i.imgur.com/2Am9aqX.png , right click the pic, save as ... then zoom on your computer and read it? :-/


    If you go to that link, make sure to click the picture once to zoom in a bit.

    You can also hold CTRL and use MouseWheel to zoom into web pages -- Depends on the browser you use.

    I can't read it even when I zoom in. You should change it to a better color.

    In Firefox (and I think other browsers) you can zoom in on the forums by hitting left-control and then scrolling the mouse-wheel. I had trouble reading it as well - but was able to after scrolling in.

    Tried that. But being legally blind and only partially corrected gives everything a little blur.

    My "blindness" correction is a 40" monitor... It does help when you blow stuff up to that size. :p

    So, I just had an encounter with the fake Nabin... he truly is one of the worst scammers I have ever seen, the conversation more or less went the same way as his conversation with Orich, basically, he approached me in my luna house, asked if I wanted to purchase Nabin's luna house. refused to display the correct guild tag or send me an ICQ from the real Nabin's account, for about 5 minutes I let him give his speech, he said what a great deal it was, and he needed the money for a family member etc. I then got this nice screenshot and reported him.

    I saw this "Nabin" as well today, but I don't own a Luna house so he didn't hustle me. Or talk to me. I did find it odd that he was not dressed in your usual attire Nabin. I thought 'maybe one if his alts...' :)

    Thanks for the heads up everybody!

    It would only not be allowed if we discovered the persons real identity and posted it here saying something like "watch out everyone ____ is scamming people" posting a general warning about a current scam is considered acceptable. especially since the person who's identity has been stolen is ok with this being posted.

    Most threads like this are a direct attack on a player. XYZ Scammed me and his alts are ABC1 and BCD4 with ###-###-### ICQ Number. That would not be allowed. In this case - Nabin is well aware of the situation and this provides a warning to the community without directly attacking someone else.

    I think the community is now aware of this, further discussion may be counter productive.
