Be Careful of someone trying to steal your key !

Postby manutoo » 15 Mar 2009, 15:41

Hello,

[Français plus bas]

>> ENGLISH <<


one user just told me he received an email from manutoo@hotmail.fr asking to give proof of his purchase, in a very approximate french.

So, of course :
1- manutoo@hotmail.fr isn't my email address (also, I don't own any "managames" email on googlemail nor yahoo, they all have been taken away since long time... :shock: )
2- I know how to write french correctly (and also English, or at least I hope ;) )
3- I'll never ask you for your key, or for your proof of purchase ; I ask your proof of purchase only when you request me to send you your key again
4- this scammer very likely gathered the email address you gave in the tournament or online forum

so be careful of poor scammers, and happy gaming... :)


>> FRANCAIS <<

un utilisateur vient juste de m'avertir qu'il avait reçu un email provenant de manutoo@hotmail.fr lui demandant de donner une preuve de son achat, dans un français très approximatif.

Alors, bien évidemment :
1- manutoo@hotmail.fr n'est pas mon adresse email (de même, je ne possède aucune adresse "managames" sur googlemail ni yahoo, elles ont toutes été prises depuis longtemps... :shock: )
2- Je sais écrire le français correctement (ainsi que l'anglais, tout du moins je l'espère ;) )
3- Je ne vous demanderai jamais votre clé, ou votre preuve d'achat ; je demande une preuve d'achat seulement quand vous me demandez de renvoyer votre clé
4- cet arnaqueur a probablement récupéré l'adresse email que vous avez donnée pour trouver des joueurs online et/ou jouer dans les tournois online

donc faites attention à ces pauvres arnaqueurs, et bon jeu..! :)

Je confirme que JNH a reçu le même email, mais il manque trop de credibilité, dans l'email, il parle de chose sans interet comme l'IP, et pourquoi une preuve d'achat pour avoir une clé ?

La question est comment a-t-il eu l'email de JNH alors qu'il ne la donne jamais dans le jeu ?

Je crois avoir laisser mon e-mail dans un topic pour pouvoir faire un match à celui qui m'ajoute, je crois.
Ou même dans les tournois.

Ok, we got someone using manutoo1@hotmail.com trying to steal people's Keys.

I don't know how to warn you more, as there's this in the License Key email you got :
Keep this file preciously, and never give it to anyone.

And this at start of each chat during online matches :
*** Mana Games will never ask for your License Key details. Shared Keys will be banned.

And this topic that I created already a long time ago, but maybe I didn't outline enough the following, so let's try another time :
manutoo wrote:I'll never ask you for your key


If you share your key with anyone, including a scammer, it'll be banned.

matiaschuiu & achraf federer are both banned for 2 weeks to try to steal Keys. This is a gentle warning Ban..!

PS: it's quite easy for me to check PM when someone points me to it.
