At least we may take this on the good side.
This may be indeed a great educational opportunity for several users here and maybe we should really thank the creator of all this.

To be confronted with phishing when it's about MyBrute isn't that serious. But if it's about your bank account that's a totally different story.
So maybe if you know what is phishing you may perhaps avoid such an experience in the future when it's about really serious things...

seeing the game in decline according to the number of players (not brutes) and the raising number of scammers, i think new registrations should be closed or at least set to only invitation.
just my 2 cents.

I agree. This is a great learning experience. For those who play MMO's like WoW, they have gotten quite used to this already. Don't even be fooled if that the URL looks legit. Many losing years work on pay accounts. And like said, better to lose those than PayPal, Email, and Bank Accounts. Losing an email account can be devastating, allowing the scammer to see everything you've subscribed to if keep old messages, and allowing them to get all the passwords to the other sites, by requesting to resend forgotten password to this email account.

The best way to avoid phishing is to NEVER LOGIN from a link given to you from an email, IMM, or PM. This also means followup links starting from them. Only login from you own URL or bookmark.

I was thinking of atleast requiring email verification for new accounts. Doesn't stop scammers, but atleast makes it more difficult for them. The ability to make new accounts on the fly is too easy and inviting for them. Because phishing was just a matter of time if able to make profit out of it. And now maybe some people may understand why I'm so intolerant about those selling accounts involved in scamming.

Can see where you are coming from with e-mail registration but it doesn't stop anything unfortunately. Takes about a minute to set up a throwaway hotmail account or somthing.

What I have done though is set it so new users have to post at least once before being able to use PM. That way I can always at least get an IP address on them .... which is always useful. Wink

True, but getting a new IP is just as easy among My Brute players. And that first post will probably be for a scam.

Can set the delay of email verification sent to a day or so. Still doesn't stop them, but it makes spamming more difficult.

Yup.

If you are dynamic then IP switch is obvious enough. But I can range ban (although have to be careful with that) so from an admin point of view, IP address is the most useful piece of info in the long run. Multiple IP addresses moreso.

Forumotion doesn't allow delayed registration e-mail unfortunately.

did anyone notice the real name of this Clan?
if you delete everything before the mybrute it shows the real name of that clan

Clan Asbach Rangers Fire BRUTES - New Brutal Economy

Wink
just look at the real address and then delete the ---------------------- part.
http://----------------------/mybrute.com/team/180713/ (EDIT BY SIOC: LINK DELETED)
http://mybrute.com/team/180713/
the last link is ligit, if so it means you got to ban every association with that clan Bob.
Worth thinking over?

[edit by B.]

Sorry Sioc, wans't thinkin' some1 might click it anyway Wink

Well, For one I am very glad to see Sioc on top of this. Have been sick and still doing much training along with some stuff for other members.

Please don't hurry jump to the conclusion.
May be that clan know nothing.

Scammer "may be" just choose that clan because the number is close to us.

They sent the tricked PM before, just for clan joining.
And the next one was channging a bit from the first.

I didn't know how to explan well, hope you'll understand it.

PS.mod, Please delete the DANGER link.

Hey guys,

i believe it becomes a more and more bad way for my clan!! and i believe for me, too!!

xteen you be right!!! This number of your mod side is my clan number. But if you compare your Clan number.. http://shien-kyaku.mybrute.com/team/187102 (don`t care of this link) ;-( it`s genesis. My Clan is http://shien...com/team/180713 . Maybe could it possible, that the numbers are changed???? But not by me. My clan is excisting since january!! Join me and have a look in my forum ;-)) But carefully, and how long is excisting the other? It sounds like a mistake!!!

The second thing which is right: Yes i bought a lot of brutes, here. around 25. Until today i never sold one Brute!! Therefore my transactions was a very bad business for me, only for fun on mybrute!!!
My brutes are in GoB, GS, Pirates, Aylove, BnD, PE, Brutux and my Clan, of course. And today i want to join 1 Brute in Genesis? (someone remind and read,too) by reason of this PM!!

But i agree it`s very mystery. If you have my Clannumber, which is excisting since january who takes this number in this link ?? http://----------------/mybrute.com/team/180713/ (EDIT BY SIOC: LINK DELETED)

Hi Biefaller,

I am so sorry I've jumped into conclusions, it was right there to assume it.
Maybe that is what the scammer intended: to put you and your squad in some bad daylights.
I would not go as far that one of your fellow members did this but you might be aware of it!

so you have gained a lot of credit here.
Again, I am so sorry I made an accusation.

I am writing in
GS with Shien-Kyaku
Bnd with Lockyear
Pirates with Odgaz
GoB with kochamjeeboczka

i think it is pointless to discuss, if you received a pm of those fellows who are already banned, it would make more sense to warn about new scammers.
thx to the admin for making it more difficult to write spam pms, i didn't knew how many options you have, otherwise i hadn't called for the radical changes i proposed.
