Just had this email come into my inbox, first thing that clued me to it being a scam was that it referred to me as "Player" and not my RSN. That being said, I clicked on it just to humor myself and it took me to a .mn website.

BEWARE!

How come I never get funny scam emails like this...

From the empty days of hope, deny the darkness
Follow my voice, we'll run far away from here

If only to hide, to escape this life
And live forever, forever in the sun

Pretty sure that is just the merging of two screenshots.

Thanks for the heads up. This is funny since Ping posted a glitch that actually allows first person mode in the pic/vid/screenshot thread. Anyone how isn't all that cautious who has seen that video would get excited, post all over RSOF and try to play. Let's see if I got the same email...

That's because it was made popular on reddit and passed around by word of mouth afterwards. And you know how things get foggy the more it gets passed from person to person...Well.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

Should be obvious fake anyway:
1) Nothing on their youtube, twitter, facebook or main page about it.
2) Email address it's from when looked at won;t be an rs one.
3) There is no reason first person mode would cause graphical glitches, it is simply relocating a camera in an existing world and a viewpoint we already can kinda achieve using orb of occulus.
4) All Runescape emails say "Hi [display name]" as their database has this data, the lack of this in the email sends up red flags
5) Hovering over the link would show up an obviously not runescape webaddress.

Unfortunately, not everyone is as experienced and aware of these things as we are.

But, you do realize that, in a sense, first person mode does exist; right?

As a mass email? And asking people to log in from a link?
