I just lost 40m. It's my own fault, I feel very stupid, and very disapointed ithat people would do that in a game, but really, i'm mad at myself. I fell for it.

Person A and his friends set up a scenario where a guy was doubleing money, he did it to one guy, pretended to scam another, then gave it back.

This continued for a while, i thought it was a set up, but for some reason, I went for it anyway. Surprse, I gave him 40m out of my 50m total cashpile, and he logged out.

I'm trying to tell meself this is just a game, but I'm still a bit upset and frustrated that I have to start over earning money.

I'm not, like expecting donations or pity, but those would be nice :oops:

If anyone has a good money making idea for a charecter with my level/skills, i'll do whatever. The only thing I have for money making is the daily stuff, so about 500k a day, idk what else to do for money.

also, i do have a pair of rangers boots, and i did just get 99 ranged. I plan on doing slayer to train melee and get money, would hanging on to the ranger boots be worth it? or just get snakeskin and call it a day?

Giving someone all your money in a trade hoping to get it back. Im glad you lost it.


If someone is legit doubling money they will give you the money same trade, your irrationality and greed (thinking someone will actually give you free money) are why you lost it.

Dailies, MTK, herb farming for easy money on the side. Try flipping with whatever cash you still have left.


And be prepared to handle the flame you're about to get.

thanks, that's the kind of stuff I like to hear,

I know I was stupid, I said that.

I guess this just reinforces the "hard knocks." The world will screw you over and no one will care.

I make good money scamming them. I say "if you double my 250k, I'll try 5m" it works almost always, too

Though I am not sure if it is allowed :s

Sorry to hear, I hate seeing people get scammed

Someone that can't spell "scammed" gets no sympathy from me.

So your lack of sympathy is because of a misspelling, not the topic itself? Nice...

OP, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

thanks, both for moving it, and the advice. I did report them, and I feel very stupid for not understanding that the doubling money thing should be in one trade. I guess I shouldn't do any big decisions when I'm tired, had a long day of college, now this, but still.

Right now, I still am motivated to at least play, we'll just have to see how i feel over the next few days.

can you point me to a flipping guide? I haven't found a good one, it just seems very abstract right now. Also, I do have a pair of ranger boots I could sell for extra cash for flipping, I got 99 ranged, I think with doing slayer or whatever using snakeskin would be fine, do you think I should sell them?

People learn best from their mistakes. That's how life works. The best thing is to move on from here. That's the only way to improve.

Bienvenue au monde. :-D

I'm sorry you got scammed. Generally, once you do something like that, there's virtually no way you'll fall for it - or any scam - again.

From now on, if you ever meet these type of scammers again, do the trick whereby you say something along the lines of "if you double 500k, I'll get you to double 10 mil". Scammers are usually just a little more intelligent than their victims, so they'll normally double your 500k and expect you to hand across the 10 mil. Once the 500k is doubled, walk away calmly and contentedly.

Brewing is a good way of making a weekly million if you have a bit of the stuff from trouble brewing. Just do greenman's ales, 16 glasses of the mature stuff is worth 1M and takes about 2-5 days to brew. So cheap it's practically free. Collect in glasses, NOT kegs.

You could also try cleaning herbs with the scroll of cleansing from dung, if you can be bothered to get it (very possible at your dung level). Not sure if this is good cash anymore, but...it might be. Do some research on that, I would.

I'm not an efficienado.

I don't understand why you chose to risk 80% of your bank tbh but learn from your mistake and don't trust strangers. Hell, even friends on runescape can betray you. I found that one out the hard way. Just chalk this up to experience and move on. At least you have some cash left and you won't be so foolish in future.

If you collect in calquat kegs, you can use glasses on them to get pints separately. This saves you the trouble of banking when doing a run.

Theres a saying about a fool and his money... and in this case OP played the fool and that brown kid taught the lesson (not to OP directly of course).

I think its pretty damn cool of him to do that. I mean I personally would That_Brown_Kid when he is out teaching kids on runescape that people arent nice and you shouldnt trust people from the internet. You might think hes an ass but I think he is doing his part to prevent some kid from getting kidnapped or real [cabbage] stolen from him.

However something like this:

I wouldn't support (although I may lol) because their victims have no way of knowing they were about to get Runescape'd

Dishonesty ruins this world. There's no difference between stealing someone's possessions IRL and in runescape, and people here seem to condone it and even admit to it. Pretty sad.

umad?

You're the [bleep]ing epitome of the idiot generation. There's nothing wrong with being mad over something you care about. In fact, I'd argue that apathy is far worse. That meme is old, annoying, and taken way out of context.
