    I couldn't help this one guy SK WAN (Silly boy), who lost his account few days ago to a scammer. The scammer made him send his account code convincing SK WAN that account code is needed to send golds. SK WAN, being a new player fell right into the trap. Now the scammer changed the account name and made the account as his.

    I know this is entirely SK WANs' fault as he send the code himself, but I feel..new potential players shouldn't be tricked like this. They're new and they don't know how this game works.

    Newbies getting scammed due to lack of awareness would make this game more dead, This should stop. I have attached ss provided by WAN as a proof he got scammed.

    This demotivated them. I'm glad he had come this forward rather than leaving the game. I'm a bit embarrassed about this new method of welcoming new players.

    Emailing to support would help him.
    He can get his account back as well andy can even unlink his account from the one who took his account by trapping him .
    Also he can report such pol so that action can be taken.
    Emailing pixel works. And there's nothing to be embarrassed of in going public and sharing this. As those ppl who tricks the new ones can be known.

    True. But he won't be able to change his name. He should play with the scammer's name until he gets sufficient golds. It's embarrassing.

    Hey guys, how's everyone doing?

    Just be a little patient with support - we eventually get to it.

    We do ban players who misbehave on a daily basis, I'll make sure this one guy is investigated.

    Thanks for the devs and supporting staffs. I'm not sure whether the scammer was banned, but SK WAN's account has been retrieved.
