Default I got screwed!!!!

Just wanted to warn everyone about a website or person that is scamming people. The website is called xikekak.com and not sure about all his char's names but i know xikekak is one of them. Do not do any trading with this person at all. He is nothing but a scammer. I have never been on here before but i figured I should warn people so id doesn't happen to anyone else

Wow, with a professional site like that I'm suprised it's anything other than a very legit business. Let me point out a few things to be wary of when dealing with any internet "retailer"

1) The "title image" of his site is a broken link.
2) Nice background image. Not >_<
3) Scrolling Java makes me stabby irl.

Sucks you got scammed tho, but if a site looks that shitty - it's very unlikely that it will be a legit business. (Not saying professional looking sites aren't, but c'mon..that shit was horrible)

I wasn't going to say anything at first. But since you mentioned it I did find it a bit odd someone who not long registered, with 1 post would come on here and advertise that platinum site. /shrug.

I only registered to post about this particular thing becuase i didnt want to see that happen to anyone else. I mean it's only a game for cryin out loud. Why do people have to steal and scam in something people do for fun. It just doesnt make sense to me that's all. And in response to your question my char's name is blondeangel.

Welcome to R&F.


The reason you were asked for your ingame name is that it's a rule of these boards to not post anonymously.

Also note that posting in here will also put you under the microscope as well, no matter how well intentioned you are.

Tough to have much sympathy for breaking the EULA. Not trying to get all high and mighty about the EULA, I think most of us have broken it a few times over the years in one way or another, but by breaking it you take risks dealing with outside parties. Sucks for you I'm sure, but this registers very low on my "Awww, poor you" scale.

Frankly, the fact that you honestly submitted information through a site that looks that bad makes me seriously question your judgement in general. There are fairly established sites that do that sort of transaction with a lot less risk than going through some piece of crap "My First HTML!" hack job.

Horm broke the EULA by being in CoI and going against the PNP and griefing other guilds.

Actually, our biggest "crime" was following the PNP.

Really though, STFU and eat a wheat sandwich! <3

Actually, you posted here to give us our daily dose of humor.

Here are some tips to avoid getting scammed in the future:
1) Don't break the EULA by buying plat.
2) Don't break the EULA by selling plat.
3) See rule 1, but insert items for plat.
4) See rule 2, but insert items for plat again.
5) and 6) See rules one and two and substitute characters/accounts for plat.
7) Don't friggin break the EULA.

Hope this prevents you and others from getting scammed in the future.

However, if you really want to get him in trouble, contact his ISP. You can tell them what he is doing and possibly get him shut down. Failing that, you could always waste his time/bandwidth with bogus offers for plat.

Goddamnit I saw the words 'I got screwed' and got all excited that it was going to be some kind of explicit tale but noooooooo its all about yet another dozy mare crying about being scammed.

Would the more appropriate title be 'I got scammed'? Then we could of just laughed at your loss.
