    It was only a matter of time.

    There is a Nabin Impersonator operating

    When You are dealing with me The Charcter will always show the guild tag

    ACW "Ancient Conclave of Wisdom" Also verify the ICQ number which will always show on my posts

    my icq is 248-636-691

    if you check the icq number and it does not match above do the following

    To help yourself out

    Right click this person in your icq list
    select view
    select profile
    click the prifile name once
    it will open an edit window which allows you to change the name displayed
    type in Scammer
    this will change the name on your list from Lord nabin to Scammer and help to keep you safe.

    One scam they use is to try and sell you the Atlantic Auction House in Luna.

    1. its not for sale.
    2. he is banned from the house.

    If you are talking with a nabin and can not get into the house then guess what

    its the scammer.

    I have posted these alerts on Uoforums as well. I would check them all.

    Let me also state that the REAL Nabin will whatever he can to reassure you and won't try to rush you into a trade. If you don't use ICQ, PM him on Stratics a secret word to repeat back to you in-game. That is a technique we used quite often when I worked as a broker when dealing with impersonators.

    Be safe people.

    This is a shame. As much as I have not always seen eye to eye with some people on this section of the boards Nabin has been a good fellow. I still have my gate house on Napa I bought from him 3+ years back....
