Create a secret word/phrase between you and your spouse.

Hey guys, there seems to be a potential scam on the uprise.

I was sitting in TC one day, than this random lvl 5 female char stands next to me and whispers me and the convo goes something like this:

Her: hey babe
Me: ....?
Her: I'm your wife dude!
Me: (oblivious to the fact it isnt my wife, i go along with it) Hey babe! you made a new char?
Her: yes, im working on a fire now
Me: well you can use my fire if you want, he's 128 1st rb and i rarely use em.
Her: oh sweet dude, thanks!
Me: (so now im about to type the login info, than something came to mind)
Me: (im thinking, my wife doesn't speak like that, i never see her saying "dude".....this person was speaking in more of a fluent american english, while my wife is BR, and speaks in more of a broken english)
Me: (now im skeptical) Before i give you this info, tell me the name of your other noob that you been playing with. (my wife has been playing on another noob recently)
Her: (she couldnt answer the question and comes up with an excuse that she has to go, and logs off)

So now im like wth, wonderin...."wow i couldve been scammed just now"

But i didnt think much of it and just forgot about the situation....than today im sitting in TC once again, and this low level MALE char tries to pose off being my wife....im like wow wth? "your not my wife noob!" and he jumps off and doesnt respond.....

Cause what they do is they observe you to see who your spouse is, than they pretend to be the name they see.

Fortunately for me im a very cautious person, which is why i've never been scammed on this game for the 5-6 years ive been playing. *knock on wood*

So idk who else may have encountered this, just becareful, and try to create a phrase or a word or a series of phrases/words that only you and your spouse knows, so if your spouse is on another char that you dont know of, they can just say that word/phrase and you know its your spouse.

-Happy gaming to you all

I married myself too O.o Well aint i a narcissist? But my main char's been married to 3 other friends... ended up regretting it anyway because my other friends mocked me for it or my 2nd spouse became a beggar.

If you were willing to give your infos to level 5 character, you deserve to get scammed.

Very similar thing happened to my in-game spouse(and rl bf well ex now). Twice someone pretended to be me. Once when i was sitting right next to him. Was before potency. So couldn't see levels. They whispered him with a character with a very similar name as my character was at the time.

The noob tried to get items off of him and friends. The noob was saying i got hacked and needed gear and money.

know who you're dearling with and you wont have to worry about getting scammed nor having a secret word between you and the ones you're sharing with (trusting).

If you do share accounts, I would expect that you know the person better than just over conquer.

ie. You have their email/msn.

Then you should tell the info through that means.
