A noob came up to me while I was strolling past the Pheonix gang and said "Giv mi fre muni end i wil dubel it" So I said "Die!" and began whacking him with my rubber chicken. He actually believed that I was hurting him so he started walking away, and then after about 10 seconds he found the run button. I heard him say in the distance "Help my". This really cracked me up so I kept whacking him.







Even though I was walking and he was running, he still couldn't get away from me. The whole chase lasted several minutes from Varrock to Rimmington, when he logged.







I will never forget that. :lol:

I had one today offer to turn addy armour into rune armour for me.







I said I didn't have any, and he told me to go buy some and bring it to him... I left and he messaged me asking if I had the addy armour yet. So I told him that yes, I did have it, and the person who sold it to me had shown me how to turn it in to rune.







Whipped the rune plate out of the bank and went back to where he was waiting and showed it to him.







"How'd you do that?" he asked.



"I thought you said you could already do it?" I answered.



"There are lots of ways, you show me how you did it." He said.



"OK, you need to use Zammy wine on it." I told him.







So off we went up to the monks and he goes to grab the wine... I'm holding the door shut and the inevitable happens. I grab his stuff (junk, gave it to a newbie) and pmed him with "Thankyou for being a contestant on 'Scam the Scammer'"

My friend got a PM in game from some guy who's name almost looked like "Jagex" but it was misspelled. He said that I had won a prize for being the "one millionth account" on Runescape and that if I gave him my Password and Username he would load my account with rare items.







That's what I call "insta-report!" :lol:

Last time I got something along the lines: "I'm Jagex staff, give me your pass because you were reported, or we'll ban you" I actually played with him, told him my password was "klapauc1us" (everyone falls for that), and then report them and add them to ignore, but without telling them I did so. Then, if they get banned, they won't drop trade any valuable item to another account, but instead they'd lose all of it.
