You may find yourself in a situation where "It's to good to be true" when a player is offering your something for free.
If anyone is offering you any type of perk or item in return for your personal information or claims to be an Administrator here's the steps you take.
- Ignore the player
- If in-game take a screen shot with the timestamp visible (/timestamp)
- Report the player via (/report) and let the administrators know
- Submit a player complaint on the forums so offline action can be taken
If someone claims to be an Administrator always validate it via /report > Not Listed Here and if the person really is an administrator they'll accept the report.
Please see the question below for protecting personal information
Never share any type of information to anyone over the internet that you don't know.
Just knowing the littlest detail about you may open the doors as most people use personal information to security answers/questions.
Never share your account password or linked email to anyone; Next Generation Staff do not require any such information to make changes to your account.
If Staff ask for any passwords to your account report them immediately (See Don't always believe what you see!" for the steps).
Never use a question or answer that is personal to you this may lead to someone you may know being able to guess the answer to your question.
Use a question and answer not even your close friends can guess this ensures the best protection you can give.
