hi guys... I'm writing to you to warn you. If you get a message "6000 Msp Points" that means that sender has hacked that account! I asked my friends why he was sending strange messages to me and my people
Sub2ero 360: I thought it might be a phishing scam as well (not to be confused with hacks), but after hearing about this from multiple sources, it does not seem to be the case. In the event of phishing scams, the message will generally include a link to
a site, usually masked to look like an official MS site, and trick the user into giving away Windows Live ID and password. From here, the accounts are compromised and the offenders log in and send the same bogus scam message to everyone on the Friends List
of the compromised account.However, in these cases, it just seems to be the words, "6000" followed by the GS icon. There is no link or anything else that can be linked to compromising accounts. Sounds like a chain letter issue.
people are SOOOOOOO stupid if they think they can get 6000 points if they message another player, if you are dumb enough to spam your friends or recent players than you deserve to have your account hacked.
Don't worry about it, people have been falling for greedy tricks since the inception of need. If this is a chain letter, as it seems, and it becomes large enough then people will use the momentum to create fraud. They might ask people to respond and then
ask for account details as a 'phishing scam' that was mentioned earlier. Let's hope they stop making cool stupid words up and forcing us to use them.
