Be wary of Fergi
«: October 10, 2007, 04:13:56 PM»
I don't have logs, because I didn't get permission to post them. But the user 'Fergi' whispered me on my alt Trixy (who had digos turned on) and asked me to hold onto her life dragon (which it didn't look like she had) so she could download Furcaida next week or something. I asked her if she'd rather ask one of her friends to do it, as she didn't know me and shouldn't really trust someone she doesn't know. She said she didn't have any friends. She then asked for my Furcadia passwords and e-mail. I got a little defensive and told her she was trying to pull a scam, but she then tried telling me it would be easier with the e-mails. I told her all she had to do was secure trade. She asked me again if I would watch her dragon, then I told her I didn't want to take part in the situation. Then she kind of stopped talking after that.

I know this isn't a scam, but I just want to make sure no one falls for this.

Well that's ridiculous. If you re-create your digo'd charachter with the correct password, the digo's should still be on it, she didn't need anyone to "hold" it unless she just wanted to make things complicated. What a douche. #SJ
you know what, if you don't like it, get on the internet and complain.

Something like this should be reported directly to Cironir in my opinion. Despite the fact you didnt have permission to show the logs, I'd still find them and send a report in to make sure this person -doesnt- scam anyone with this supposed 'trick' they have come up with.
Im letting my alts rot. So dont ask.

Looked a bit into it. The person does not have a history of doing that frequently, but they have literally a hundred of throw-away alts that were used a handful of times each and never confirmed. No digos whatsoever, so Zippy's caution was right on target. Yes, I think I would like a copy of the log -- the part about asking you for your password deserves some attention, I feel.

All right. Here's the the logs up to the part where she asked me for my passwords. The rest is her trying to cover it up.

[ Fergi whispers, "Hi erm would you look after my life dragon for me i'm going to reload furcadia nxt week so can i transfer it now" to you. ]
(You see Fergi.)
> Catch as wisper a secret true and alway remember I HRT you J' Battie M' None
[ Fergi whispers, "this is kinda random" to you. ]
[ You whisper "Yes, I see. I dunno, would you really trust someone you don't know?" to Fergi. ]

I've had this before but with a different person, can't remember their name. Some people really think anyone would do that. Aha.

Okay yeah, most likely trying to scam you.
Why would she ask for your password and email?
And no freinds? Come on. Fergi must have AT LEAST had one.
I saw her once in AI. Next time I see her again I'll ask Ferg if she actually has a life dragon, if she says no, I'll drop by.
