Dear Sir or Madam,

We are conducting research on the rise and fall of a popular MMORPG called Runescape. We have received your email address from a popular fan-site and would appreciate your cooperation in our survey.

We have come to the understanding that you no longer play Runescape. If this is not the case, feel free to ignore the following.


Our research will log the actions and game-play (including activities, time spent playing, social interaction, etc.) of several thousand retired Runescape players. In order to utilize your account in this survey, we require access to your account in order to view stat changes, adventure logs, chat logs, and possibly interview some players in game.


If you agree to help us with our research, please respond to this email with the following information. Participants will be reimbursed $19.95 via Paypal upon completion of the study.*


Username (Login Name):

Password:

Bank Pin (If Set):

Paypal Address (If payment is desired):


*Paypal address is NOT required. You may choose to receive no payment at all, or you can include mailing information for payment by check. Once payment has been issued, we are not responsible for loss of accounts.


Thank you for your time in reading this and your cooperation with our study.


Gratefully,

The MMO-Research Team


amg account + pass + pin so they can conduct research on whether you scape

didn't know if there was a specific place to post these but it probably doesn't hurt to post in a place people actually read

Even if you're a total idiot the sentence "Once payment has been issued, we are not responsible for loss of accounts." should turn away anyone, haha.

I think it's a little too unbelievably obvious to fall for. And it seems like it's targeting fansites that have a play status option. Like TIF.

Oh, they sound legit. /sarcasm.

Why would they need to look at the actions of retired players, after they're retired. The person who came up with that could have thought that through a bit more.
