Guys, just wanted you to be aware that there is a scam email going round with pictures lifted from the website and text informing players that they have been selected as a Beta tester. Clearly this stinks to high heaven and isn't from Jagex. Hovering over the link shows that the address includes a link to STELARdawn. :frusty:

If you can let as many people know about this as possible that would be great. :D

Small text can still speak big words, such as paleontology, or entanglement.

Usually it's because you've signed up for a site which has given away, used or sold your information on.

Thanks for the heads up, although they look more and more real I check my url bar no matter what website I visit from my browser.

The views below are those expressed by myself and not Stellar Dawn Central.

Stellar Dawn Central will never give away, or sell your information on to Third Parties.

It is most likely some stellar dawn related site. They probably crawled through our contacts thread, or a similar thing.

So not your fault, but still possibly from this site.

Because Jagex warned us about it apparently.

Really, it isn't that important, just business as usual.

I actually think I could make quite a profit if I sold each name for a quarter each...

Hell, it'd be more than what I had yesterday.

Well apparently a lot of people on the SDOF fell for it sadly. So it's a good thing to watch out for. The reason why this one is more important is that it targets Stellar Dawn fans who are desperate for information as it is and may easily fall for such tricks. On top of that, this is a Stellar Dawn forum, not a forum about my Nigerian Uncle so scams relevant to SD need to be posted.

Needless to say, I never receive these emails because I don't flippantly enter my details on every site I visit.

And of course, those who haven't really been involved in either community, as most of those who fell for it weren't regulars in SDOF or SDC and thus it didn't really cross their minds to check the sites for confirmation before clicking the link.

^^this.

SDOF users are for the most part smart people who aren;t naive noobs. Most of the scam victims were people who signed up a year ago and forgot about the site.
