The Jagexevent Scam

| | Comments (0)
If you (or a family member) play Runescape, you might want to keep an eye out for this one.

A number of people are telling players on their friends list that the creators of the game (Jagex) are running a week long competition, where the selected participants change their password to

jagexevent

in order to get their hands on lots of free goodies.

If the person told about this event is suspicious, then the attacker will send them the following doctored screenshot as "proof", made to look like an official post by a Jagex Community Manager:

Of course, once you change your password to Jagexevent, you're not going to get anything other than the chance to wave goodbye to your account as it falls under new ownership.
