But what if you really want to see yourself in the YouTubes? I hear that's the best place to learn how to snipe!

Probably best to report the accounts spamming these to Support as well.

Never respond to an e-mail where you must input PERSONAL INFORMATION.

 

EVER.

 

A legit company will direct you to their website.....

 

Where they will monitor all your personal activity and find out which teeth has your grandmother's gold fillings...….and maybe try sell you some Donald Trump socks (really I got an e-mail for Trump 2020 socks last week).

Got some more recently, catch is that you have been caught doing something wrong and will be banned. Provides a line to a replay, but it is "WOTSREPLAY.RU"

I was stupid enough to use the link, found my account being used by somebody else today, changed the password.

Apparently the person who sent me the message also had their account hacked.

Stay safe people

i have heard from a friend who has a friend that does some python coding who wrote a little python script that flooded these people's database with around 15 million fake emails and password. he requested more messages so he can practice more python scripting ;-)

Not a WoT scam, but yesterday I had one of our regular calls from the usual "Microsoft" scam guys.

 

Didn't have the time or the inclination to play with this guy (I often have fun with them but when I'm too busy, I just ask them if they can hold on and mute the phone... usually wastes a few minutes of their time for no effort or cost to us), but this one thought he was being extra clever in saying his name was "Jack Ryan".

 

My dude, if you're going to rob little old ladies, at least don't pick a scam name that even boomers will recognize. Or do, actually. You just keep on thinking you're the smart one, buddy.

My favourite game with those guys is pretending to be an old geezer who thinks his microwave is a computer and seeing how long it takes for the scammer to figure it out.

my favorites are those holiday clubs things, keep them online for 1 hour, and finally they put me thru to the accounts/sales department to finalize the sale and i give them an expired Credit Card number... they spit the dummy big time. they never asked if i have a "active credit card" ..
