Apologies for naming as I did not want vunerable people to fall for this scam. In regards to player mod's I am very certain that the player who contacted me had a grey dull looking crown. I find it bizarre that he has now changed his name.
Danc5said: To be honest. I am not sure , however it looked very convincing. As things like that never happen to me. I guess I had a feeling it was a scam. What other types of crown next to the player mean.? Gold is a Jagex Moderator, name will start with Mod. Silver is a Player Moderator. (Only ingame). Pink/Purple is a Local Moderator. Green is a Forum Moderator (only on forums).
I don't have a signature, but wanted to have some content here.
Has anyone had a similar experience.? ( to potential staff impersonation - scamming)
As my first post was hidden due to accidentally naming the scammer ( which I am sorry) they contacted me via private chat, asked if I received an email to become a player moderator, asked to speak in the lobby. Then asked for my email to send a copy . Immediately put on my ignore list and has changed name.
What would have happened when they get your email is account recovery which means they may be able to get into your account once they have obtained this information. I wish I had reported them at the time.
