    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).

    shout Reminder. READ YAMACHI'S POST FIRST!

    As the matter is still happening outside, and sometimes, even inside the RaGEZONE, I would like to top up existing Yamachi's post, point out and remind couple things in regards to the cases:


    1. RaGEZONE PROHIBITS ANY CABAL FILE SALES & Services and is not associated with any sellers whatsoever.
    2. If you are buying any kind of files or services from a person stating that he is a member of RaGEZONE community, MAKE SURE you send a private message to the person, he's pretending to be on RaGEZONE, to actually confirm it's that person who he says he is.
      For example: If someone says that, they he is MentaL, find one of the MentaL's posts and message him via Private Message to confirm it is actually him. There was many accidents, where people simply adjusted HTML code on the website, via inspect element in their browsers and sent it as a "proof" of their identity.
      ALWAYS CONTACT PERSON ON RAGEZONE AND GET THEIR REPLY FROM THEIR ORIGINAL ACCOUNTS TO CONFIRM IT IS ACTUALLY THAT PERSON, before attempting to do anything.
      After you have confirmed it is a members of RaGEZONE selling files - REPORT that user to Me or @Shoelace with a full chat history and other possible evidences, so that actions could be taken against him/her.
    3. If you have been scammed or feel that someone is trying to scam you and that person is from RaGEZONE, DO NOT HESITATE AND REPORT HIM INSTANTLY to Me or @Shoelace (Send a private message). WITH EVIDENCES ONLY! (such as: screenshots, chats, videos).
    4. Report any scamming cases which has been affiliated with RaGEZONE, such as someone pretending to be a member of the forum or Cabal Section's community and similar, in order to put them to shame board, so that other users would be aware of possible scam attempts if they are being approached by any of the possible scammers privately.
      To report a scammer from Cabal Community: Send a private message of the person with evidences, such as: videos, chats, screenshots and such to Me or @Shoelace. No evidence will lead to a warning for the person reporting!
    5. Be thoughtful. In RaGEZONE you can find most of the information and learning materials to build your own servers, request help in Cabal Help section, give extra attention to all possible situations and never trust someone trying to approach you privately and offering files / services to buy.

    Re: [IMPORTANT] Beware of scammers!

    I would like to inform everyone about taking extra care of any deals involving sales! RaGEZONE does NOT allow this!

    An accident involving a member of this community and a scammer named: Elite Developer already happened.
    A scammer has been using paypal fraud to get subscription and pm'ed members of Cabal Community in regards to various server files sales and related material.

    If you take it to off the RaGEZONE - it is solely your responsibility and no help will he provided in regards to such matter. If someone is trying to pm you in regards to servers files and / or asking for skype and such to make deals, keep all messages linked to any conversation!

    Behind the DDOS attack since last year

    My host server was attacked yesterday with DDOS and packet flooding. I tried to captured who is the behind of this kind of attacked. This attacked was really common on all most private servers since last year. Most of admins/developer pointing out to "Mark Villareal" (which is dummy account only).

    While attacker attacking my host, I've captured how does he attacked my ports while doing a heavy DDOS flooding and spam packets. The screenshot below showing how he spammed a packet on my channel ports which is send every 1 milliseconds. (Not normal if you are player when connecting to the channel)


    I tracked his IP and the result is on the belo

    From Philippines Cavite, Bacoor (Not proxy IP) no one can proxy this kind of IP and using PLDT ISP.

    I've searched the IP on my database to check if he is on my game for monitoring on his attacked.
    I found him on my game and online while he still doing an attacked to saturate and flood my channel port to make the players lag. Screenshot below with the result of the IP search.


    As you seen, the last login of date and time + his IP and email registered.
    Note: The character was logged on my game and only level 1 and AFK. During my channel experienced a heavy lag on the corresponding channels. You'll be doubt that this character doing a bad activities on your game. (DDOS attack + packet spam).

    E-mail: ian.alegre324@gmail.com
    IP: 49.146.145.216

    I've searched his email everywhere (google) and I've found these.


    Adrian Alegre << Brother of Christopher Zen Alegre
    Real name of attacker: Christopher Zen Alegre

    I really high doubted that Mark Villareal = Christopher Zen Alegre

    I've received mass reports that lot of private servers have been attacked yesterday.

    This guy also attacked my server last January 2017 and I've capture his IP too.

    He used his wife email address which Ralen Alegre (I guess) and you will noticed that he was banned by Mental here in ragezone long time ago by scamming.

    If you guys have been attacked yesterday, you can capture his IP on the logs. Let's see if everything are same and compared.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Additional: I got news that he's going to open a server soon (Dynasty Cabal). That's why he attacking all servers right now. Screenshot below:


    101% I am sure that Mark Villareal is a dummy account and used it to send private message on all admins to ask some money to stop him attacking the server.

    I've been talked to Adrian Alegre personally regarding this issue, He proclaimed that he has been used by his brother (Christopher Zen Alegre) to hide his identity.

    101% confirmed Mark Villareal = Christopher Zen Alegre

    People that do this sort of thing (cheating, ddos'ing, scamming, etc.) ALWAYS blame their brother. Always.

    Don't accused any member here in ragezone if you can't provide any proof.
    If you are pointing out on my screenshot above, it's FATAL CODER not Bloody Coder.

    - Your friend who WAS THE ACTUAL BUYER and owner of the project - HE WAS PAYING FOR THE JOB, and was so much respectful and finalize whole thing for HIS PROJECT.
    Yet YOU are trying to cinvince everyone else, how cool are You? You are nothing more than kiddo, with no respect for anybodys time and yet You are raging, screaming and flamming the most.

    I do not need to be paying to be the buyer. I see if the service is ok, I give OK.
    You'll learn how to treat your customers, hurried moron.
    Do not cut out just one message, but show them all. Kiddo haha

    This is a scammers-oriented topic. If the Avve user does not have proof that he has been robbed and has not received his money, please someone from moderation do something about it. I do not want my personal infos exposed.

    Please, close and delete this shit.

    Yes, show me the print where you negotiate with Quenio about the details of what needed to be done.
    Idiot.

    Nobody stole you. So I'm not a scammer. Remove the topic!
    You are just an unprofessional child who should be starving and did not want to wait for me to solve the credit card problem.
