Hey guys,

I recently got an e-mail from people pretending to be jagex, saying all kinds of stuff about „someone tried to register a new e-mail“ and „there is evidence against for RWT your account“ and trying to get me logging in on a fake RS website. They also tried to copy the e-mail adress, theirs is „noreply@jagex.com“ whilst the real Runescape one is „ noreply@e.runescape.com„.
Always make sure to double check the URL and the e-mail adress you receive something from!! I‘m glad i didnt fall for this but now i wonder where they got my e-mail adress from...
I hope some Mods see this to take action against this or raise awareness..

Yea this is an old scam, Jagex even has a thread about it in the community led
account help.

But its alway good to make sure pple remember that Jagex wont email you about
bans. Only in your message center.
The richest person is not who has the most. It is who Needs the least.

I'd love someday to see players phish these phishers back. Choke on their own medicine. .

wingscancer1,

That's a scam, 100% sure. Jagex will never email you to CANCEL a change, only to CONFIRM it. Forward it to 'reportphishing@jagex.com'.

Edit: Oh, this thread gives me an excuse opportunity to show off my new (or rather, renewed) thread: Is this a Jagex email? [Info] :D
