-Fake Login Pages-
Because of Neopets
new login pages there will be no more fake login pages. If you do
see one then report them. It just means that they haven't updated
The easiest way to steal an account is to know someone's password. Scammers
will do EVERYTHING to get it. Some people pretend to be from the neopets
staff. They will say that an error has occurred in the neopets database and
that they need your password. NO ONE FROM THE NEOPETS TEAM WILL EVER
CONTACT YOU ASKING FOR YOUR PASSWORD! Other people say that they have a
special way to generate neopoints. They ask your password so they can use
this cheat on your account to. There is NO special way to get more
neopoints! NEVER EVER GIVE OUT YOUR PASSWORD! No matter what someone says.
People can tell you to buy something from
their shop and promises to give you something in return, or to buy from
your shop. Or they promises you to tell you a secret for how to generate
your own neopoints. These are just scams to get you to buy their
over-priced items. Never do any trading outside the trading post!
-Trading post scams-
Sometimes people tell you that the highest bidder
on their (usually junk) lot will get a bla bla expensive item. Or they say
they are leaving neopetsand the highest bid on their lot will get their
account. (If that's true, why would they want the highest bid?) These are
just scams to rob you from your well deserved neopoints.
When someone asks you to change the email address on your info page into an
address they give you, NEVER do it! They
will probably tell you that you will get something valuable when you do
So why not? The email address they want you to put into
your info page is theirs. So when you change it, they can do a "lost
password". That means that neopets sends your password to the email
on your info page. Can you see? they are trying to steel your account!
Sometimes you will see a message saying: Post
this message on twelve different boards and you will find a fearie
paintbrush! or you receive a neomail telling you to sent this mail to all
your friends to get a paintbrush as a random event. These are chainletters
and they are not true. just delete them right away.
Neositting means leaving your account to
someone else to take care of your pets while you are on your holiday.
What's wrong? That's easy...
If someone wants to take care of your pets, they need
access to your account. You shouldn't ever trust ANYONE with that! What
can happen when you still decide to get a neositter? Imagine: after two
weeks on a tropical island in the Caribbean you get home and decide to
check upon your neopets. When you log in to your account you notice that
all your neopoints are gone! Along with your petpet collection... Or even
worse... You can't seem to get into your account. A cybunny keeps telling
you that you used the wrong password! Your account was stolen by the
neositter.So think twice before you decide to get
a neositter! If you want your pets to be looked after while your gone, you
can leave them happily at the neolodge.
Sometimes people will ask you for an item or Neopoints in order to be
their Neofriend. What happens? They ask for something rare like a bottled
faerie. Then they add you to their Neofriend list, and say they will give
you something else in exchange. Two weeks later, you log in, and you see
that the person hasn't given you anything in exchange. Or they have given
you junk. Don't be Neofriends with anyone who requests a rare item!
