I got scammed just a little bit ago by a player mod who claimed to be inviting me to be a moderator as well. He stole all my money, my Rocktail, and my Sailfish. It looked like a legitimate offer. :(

For a start, that is not a player moderator.

All player moderators have a silver crown next to their name in your text window. Jagex moderators will have a gold crown and the word 'Mod' at the start of their name, whilst local moderators will have a purple crown. Anyone claiming to be a moderator who doesn't have these accreditations should be reported for staff impersonation.

The name you have mentioned is clearly misconceiving, and you should take the time to report this incident to reportphishing@jagex.com.

Remember, you will only be contacted to become a moderator through your messaging centre, and not through Private Messages in-game.

It sounds more like the individual had an Ironman logo next to their name, rather than a moderator crown - something quite common with this type of scam.

For more info on moderators, see here: https://support.runescape.com/hc/en-gb/articles/209270969-Moderators-and-Community-Helpers

I'd recommend editing your first post, as naming and shaming isn't permitted here. You should also have a read of some guides if you need help rebuilding.

Sorry to hear you were scammed!
