Ok heres a little idea that I came up with that has worked VERY well over the last 7 days.
- Common Sense
- A little Patience
- People Skills
- A Scammed LvL 80 (or any account but a lvl 80 builds a lot more trust- the better the gear, the better the scam will go)
OK HERES WHAT TO DO-
STEP 1: Talk casually in trade chat-- dont advertise that you are selling blatantly because this will get you reported.. just casually Mention something like this...
"Man Im tired of playing my cataclysm alpha account- I wish I could get gold for it or something"
This part has a bit of room for improvement but that has worked for me!
STEP 2: Wait and say that, or something like it once in a while (not too often)
STEP 3: You will get whispers from a few people saying "alpha account? that doesnt exist" (ignore these people). but you will also get people that believe you. mostly children or morons but that is fine.. these are your target. Say "ya blizzard released the friends and family alpha and my uncle is a GM" or something along those lines.. talk to them a bit but act like you arent sure you wanna part with it- and be concerned that you dont wanna break any rules (this way they think your a dumb little kid not a scammer)
STEP 4: Agree on a large amount of in-game gold (I have sold them for 7k-16k depending on the server)
STEP 5: This step can go several ways...
OPTION 1: Tell them that you will give them the info for XX amount of gold but you have to go to dinner so you dont have time to wait... then just give them fake info and take the gold (you would be surprised how often this acctually works)
OPTION 2: Direct them to a well made Cataclysm Alpha phisher, allow them to enter the key. This way you take their gold AND their account. Hello bran new lvl 80 and hello 7k gold on your main.
HERE IS A WELL MADE GUIDE ON HOW TO DO THAT (not mine, courtesy of x_royal_x)
I really hope you like this guide, its good to be back in the scam writing business. Please feel free to leave me feedback or constructive critisism... just dont be a ****tard
For those who say "this wont work" please dont call me a liar... I test ALL my scamming methods extensively. This is not a theory or idea this is a tested and confirmed scamming method that I have put much time into not only writing, but extensively testing. Dont make me a liar, and dont insult my intelligence
keep this in mind... IF PEOPLE ARE DUMB ENOUGH TO FALL FOR A CATACLYSM PHISHER, there is NO REASON they will not fall for this method as well. In fact this is even better because you have the ability to convince them and to attempt to change their mind if you dont believe you.. and a cataclysm phisher is a good way to do this.. simply direct them to your legit-looking website and this will change their skeptical minds most of the time. also keep in mind that we are scamming morons, not smart people. If someone is too smart to scam, just move on. There is many fish in the sea and a moron will come along eventually
