    New RMT method of account hijacking?

    ADMIN: IF YOU GET YOUR ACCOUNT STOLEN BY GOING TO THAT URL YOU DESERVE LOSING IT


    I just got this tell about 5 minutes ago, and as you can see from the chat log, so have other people.

    This method isn't new, regardless of url, and anyone that falls for it deserves to lose their shit.

    These never get to me, I think they usually get banned after H or so. They happen fairly often though.

    I never get these messages. Guess they get banned long before they get to the T-names.

    I have never gotten one of these messages... guess they never feel like mixing it up and starting from the bottom of the alphabet.

    This happened to my friend a little over a year ago. My friend got a tell from someone with a url, and was stupid enough to check it out. Then the next day his mule, which i knew was his, was sending out the /tells.

    Do you figure we'll see these becoming more and more common as they start to exploit the free trials for throw-away ad-bots/gil-mules?
