Phishing Scam Reported By Raffaella Genovese- 8/16/13



“THERE IS A PHISHING SCAM GOING AROUND SL WHERE THEY GO INTO GROUPS AND TELL U TO CLICK ON A LINK. IT WILL LEAD YOU TO YOUR LOG IN PAGE THEN STEAL YOUR AVATAR MONEY AND EVERYTHING ELSE PLEASE BE CAUTIOUS!  HUGS LOVE ALL OF U”

 - Raffaella Genovese





The person who seemed to have left the link in a group was Rene C****. This person may have been hacked unless they are really bold enough to post a real life image and other interesting details about themselves for all to see. Please keep in mind that hackers and scammers exist in Second Life so use caution when accepting objects from people you do not know or receive a link that seems a bit fishy.
One victim reported that she had been robbed of her lindens and took action!

Suzy Mynx said, “I clicked on a link to some shoes or something  and they got my pw, logged in and changed it, logged me out then used my payment info to buy 200 us dollars worth of lindens they then logged suzy in and tried to pass the lindens on to another avie.”

Suzy explained that this all took place in a matter of 5 minutes and she contacted Linden Labs right away. Linden Labs took action by closing her Suzy account down as well as the other person the lindens were passed to.

Suzy got lucky that her account and Lindens were returned within two days but others aren't so fortunate.

Please be sure to pass this warning on to all your friends and groups to keep them informed of the dangers. By sticking together, we can fight back against scammers and hackers that come to Second Life to abuse and steal from innocent residents.

If you feel you have been a victim of hackers, scammers, phishing or pain in the ass griefers, report abuse. Don’t wait.

Go to your help tab >>report abuse. A window will pop up with a screenshot. Follow the instructions and submit report.

  1. One of the most vile and reprehensible things any Ryan Eagle Scammer can do in World of Warcraft is to steal something from someone and then turn around and try to resell it.
