General Warning For Euchre Players

Post by American Beauty » Fri May 25, 2007 11:59 am

Attention, Please.

If a player comes and asks for you to give them your password so they can have a higher-rated nic, DON'T GIVE IT TO THEM!

We have had a number of players, dozens actually, that have fallen for this scam and have had other names stolen as well. And once they have your password, they can go in and change it. And once that's done there is nothing administration can do, except perhaps censor the nic, and that is not a real solution.

Sometimes the person asking will say that if you give her your password she will turn you blue. In that event, please file a report and notify administration immediately, for that is a bannable offense.

You can change your password on a certain nic before giving or letting someone use your nic. That way all your other nics are still protected.
always play your best, and keep counting.....

Its still a very bad idea, as that nick is yours and if they use it and say start cussing or something it could get you banned. And telling admin I loaned it to so and so isn't gonna help.

GrandmaS that was my same response when I read this post and I went searching. Jonas has stated the same in the public forums before.

It's not bannable to have somone give you thier nick, but it's a realy really bad idea.
Lately I have encountered many players in spades and euchre discussing giving away or loaning nics to have a player play the rating up.

When I have had to work with players who made this unfortunate mistake and found themselves suddenly banned with no offense, it often takes several weeks for SCE to untangle the accounts and have the ban removed from the player that was not supposed to be banned.

Why would anyone want to share a nic? It is only a game why does the rating matter so much to some people? Thay can have my nic and get the rating up for me then give it back LOL just kidding
