It has come to our attention that there have been numerous cases of people from this section being scammed. Before you deal with anyone, especially if it's a money deal, keep these things in mind:
- NEVER give someone money before getting what you're paying for. If someone says something like "I need the money first because I don't want to be scammed", or "I have to make sure you're being truthful about wanting to buy these files", chances are they are attempting to scam you! This is a very common scam tactic.
- Beware of people pretending to be females. Many scammers/cheats/liars do this to get you to trust them. There are numerous instances of people pretending to be a girl just so they can get a staff position on a server. If you ask them to prove their gender, and they use the excuse "I don't have a cam/mic", tell them to get lost. It's most likely a guy, and nobody needs a liar on their team.
- Many people are pretending to be TDP members or friends of TDP. There was very recently a case of a scammer claiming to be my close friend to gain someone else's trust. If someone tells you they are in TDP/friends of TDP, send me a PM before you do anything else!
- Do not give server/db access to anyone that you don't trust and have only known for a short amount of time! Very often, scammers will ask you for access to your server so they can "fix your problem", "help you", "add new features", or "upload the files you bought". If they really are capable of helping and want to, then they can very easily do so without ever touching your server. If they wanted to give you new features (that you may or may not have bought), then can just give you the files. Nobody else, except yourself and your dev(s), should have access to your server.
- NEVER believe anyone that claims to have EP3/4/5/6/7/8/10 files. They are most likely full of crap. If anyone was really selling legit EP3 files, TDP would probably know about it. You cannot buy server files from ESTSoft, and nobody else, that we know of, has them, except Elite Kingdoms (and possibly a few Chinese).
