I read about this first in the Mod forums and was a little concerned, but once I saw a picture I knew I wouldn't get caught, but I'm sure someone will. I also know Jagex is aware of this and are looking into it.


Thats an interesting story that I find to be quite engaging.

Although most of us know well that jagex will put a message in your inbox instead of randomly pming you, the scammers sure have gotten advanced to be able to actually have mod mark in the name....

Not sure if I am starting to lose my eyesight, but I would have to zoom that image in photoshop to read something out of it.

Mod Mark is the lead designer; he basically manages the content developers. AKA - He has absolutely nothing to do with P-Mods/F-Mods. Also recruitment has been stuck on hold since August due to some UK laws preventing them from recruit 'volunteer mods'. If you didn't know any of those two, they wouldn't send you off to external sites and such whats. I guess it would be believable to some people but just ask yourself... where is the crown? No crown = They're trying to phish your password.

Sneaky bastards.

I agree with indenting multi-line messages, or perhaps bolding or colouring the actual name to distinguish it from the message.

If you take the time to look for indicators such as a gold crown or make sure the website isnt [LikelyScam] youll be ok.

Now i have to go start screenshoting every email from Jagex saying my account has been locked due to RWT so I can warn you all before you lose your accounts. It's an epidemic out there.
