I had someone come up to me, and offer to give me a full free year of membership if I gave them my password. I reported them instantly.

This is one of the ost funna ones. I was selling my full zammy to this guy for 2.9m. I click accept when it is 2.9m. Then he changes it to 29k and then HE accepts. When he changed it my accept was cancelled. SO basically it was him offering me 29k for full zammy and I hadn't even accepted :lol:

I just remembered another time.







I was mining in the mining guild and I recieved a PM from this guy with a name like E0n(lots of numbers). It read "Hello sir, I am a player moderator. Jagex has assigned me to ask you if you would like to become one too." I replied telling him no thanks, obviously knowing he was a scammer. He was probably one of those noobs that saw my red h'ween mask and wanted it. Then he begged me in PM's for ages pleading me to become a player mod which annoyed the hell out of me so I said "Ok where are you?"







He told me that he was invisible because he was a player mod, but I found him hiding around those trees east of the mining guild. He tried to run away too it was so funny. When I caught up he pretended that he became visible so we could talk. So we did and he went through all the free stuff, free membership and all the 'special powers' that you get for being a player mod, such as free phats and armour delivered to your bank every month. He just needed my pass so he could register me. I told him a fake one and he logged just about as soon as I said it.







When he came back he was like, tell me the real pass or i'll ban you. I noticed that he was wearing a set of rune. "Give me that rune and i'll tell you my pass for sure!" I said, he replied "Wow ok." Stupidly, he thought he wouldn't lose a thing because he was getting my pass. Wrong.







After he found out that it was the wrong pass he begged and begged for my pass. He ended up giving me even more rune stuff, totaling about 400k worth altogether. This guy was so thick I felt sorry for him, but kept his stuff because he was a scamming noob. This isn't a made up story either, it's all true and very funny.

I can't believe he actually did that...







As far as scams I've seen, they've just been the usual password/armor trimming/staff impersonation ones. :roll: I've tried to intervene when someone's actually getting scammed though. Seems to me they usually believe the scammer and not me however..

Once some guy PMed me and said he was a player mod.he said he received a report about me and wanted to check it out.the guy didn't have a crown next to his name.so I told him about it.he said they only appear in public chat.I played along and said OK.I told him to meet me so we could talk easier.He said he wasn't really a player and that he was just there,he could press the arrow keys and it would move around the map.I asked him what I was doing.he said the players don't show up.then he asked me for my pass.I told him player mods don't ask for passwords.then he said he wasn't a player mod,he was an admin.then I reported him and played along for a while,until finally he cursed me out.an even funnier thing...his name was runscap baner.



that noob.







another time some lvl 70(I was around 40 or 50 at the time) told me when you get members you can make someone else members.I told him to do it.he said he wanted my pass,then I reported him.







and yet another time...me and my friend were fooling around,actling liked we lived in some houses in varrock(not owned,thats not allowed :P )



I saw some guy standing ina house.he told me to get out because it was his.he told me he payed jagex 100 million to own it.I told him why would jagex want runescape money when they made the game?instant report.







I guess people think I look stupid...

the funniest one ive ever had is a lvl 3-5 noob (i can't remember) walks up while im wearing my full rune and the following scene happens:



noob: drop all ur stuff and press Alt f5. it will duplicate ur stuff.



me: lol don't u mean alt f4?



noob: drop ur stuff and press alt f5 or ill ban u.



me: ok.



*i drop my bronze med*



i log out



come back in and pick it up again



noob: drop ur rune and press alt f5



me: u must mean alt f4



noob: alt f5



me: lol



i call my friend over and i tell him what just happened.



we both start laughing at him.



i tottaly agree with Ocelotbren on the noobs trusting the scammers thing



and i tottaly agree with Ocelotbren on the noobs trusting the scammers thing



he logs out.



a guy comes over in full black (g) and says: hey u noobs laughing at me?



me: no at some noob



he gets mad and stars swearing



we ignore him and the noob comes back



my friend: hey the noob's back



noob: all of u drop ur armor and press alt f4.



me: he finnaly got the scam right. hooray



we all start laughing at him



last we ever saw of him



the message of the stroy is: its funny when a scammer gets the scam wrong. even more if he gets reported 6 times in the process



sorry if this one's a little long



and Ocelotbren is right about the noobs trusting scammers

or offering me mithril stuff and a few thousands of coins for my blue phat



or people saying they would report me cause they think i've scammed to get this phat



or following me to beg for cash sometimes for days (ya i don't even waste my time putting their names on ignore list)

just put chat block on.

Since the one thing we can say about fundamental matter is, that it is vibrating. And since all vibrations are theoretically sound, then it is not unreasonable to suggest that the universe is music and should be perceived as such.
