Now, instead of "Jagex Ltd" or "RuneScape" I'm getting the same emails from "fdgdfd". Something tells me they're not trying that hard anymore.

From Jagex ltd as usual,
I eagerly got on the link given, but for some reason they messed it up and it didn't work. Thankfully I had Mr Roo on skype with me, who told me to check if it was real - and the link ofc had a spelling error in it (stelardawn).. crisis averted.
Fairly shaken up atm, thought I was more clever than that XD
So yeah.. be careful.

They came to me, asked "Do you want to be on youtube? I will be dropping 30m too!" I knew right away, Scam. I said yes. They lead me all the way around edgeville, and then had me jump the wildy border. They then gave me 1 law rune and 1 air rune and said "This is for when i drop the 30m so you can grab it" I accepted and they led me on. We went farther out, until about Wilderness level 4 and then on top of a mound was another player. He had Dragon Claws. He froze me and then ran to me and quickly killed me.
BEWARE. The scammers username was

Just yesterday I was selling junk that I had picked up the day before, got a good profit from it too (179k from the stuff I sold, plus around 500k worth of stuff I kept (Lots of potions, charged glories/ROW's, some other stuff).
And knowing that the "Doubling Money" thing was sadly still going, and seeing someone do it right next to me, I gave it a shot with the 179k I got from the junk.
Didn't go so well, but laughed my head off at it. Besides, what's 179k compared to 1M+.

Then they get you to put the money in your inv and then trade them (in level 35 wildy), as i dident know you cant put money back in your money pouch in pvp areas, but luckly i thourght it was a scam so tryed it with like 10k, they also say dont worry just put it back in your money pouch when i attack you its safe
Think the persons username was something like jigsaw? :S

they are actually a lot worse.
when you have a scammer you get scammed of your cash, its your fault, you were greedy and paid for it, with the legit player they give you a false sense of security that you can trust people, this in turn can cost people a lot more cash.
Do not gamble unless you are prepared to lose everything.

Thankfully I've never been hacked, but just in case, I've made several ftp accounts to hold some of my money as a back up. Nice to have a bit of insurance, eh?
Its only OK if you dont get caught and lose it all, not likely but possible.
Its very unlikely to get hacked, there are people who get hacked several times, there not unlucky just careless.

But because I had a bank PIN and I carried nothing on me at the time, I lost nothing.
I could tell cuz the hacker used Chrome (got Chrome goggles, I use firefox lmao), and he tried to remove my PIN.
Set a pin and the recovery delay to 7 days, people!
Sig is in construction, I'm bad with them :c

I have, however, been completely hacked. I had a high level 90 account and accidentally navigated to a fake log-in page and entered my info. I realized my mistake and immediately changed my password. However, the hacker was still able to completely take over my account. I tried to recover my account, but was unable to due to lack of recovery questions, so the Jagex Staff was unable to help me. Lessons: Always check the left corner and Always have set security questions.
