Since there have been many cases of account hacking recently,due to people visiting the websites posted in the fake [Tip] messages in the system box,i thought i'd make this thread,to raise awareness of the Cabal's community.
There are a few simple things which differ a real [Tip] message from a fake one.
1. A real [Tip] message will appear at the top of your screen,and in the System box.
A fake message will not.
2. A fake [Tip] message advertises a website which either offers free Cabal Cash,or tells players to accept new rules for Cabal.Both of these are fake. DO NOT VISIT THOSE WEBSITES.
A real Game Master won't tell you to go to any website,other then www.cabalonline.com,http://forum.cabalonline.com or support.cabalonline.com
You will not see these sites in the System box in any case.
3. Fake [Tip] messages have a different color than the real ones.
Real messages have a slightly darker shade of red.
4. On top of all this,the fake [Tip] messages are usually full of spelling/grammar errors,so they are quite easy to spot.You can see that in the picture above.
Now,i know that the fake [Tip] messages have been around for quite some time now,and many of you know how to tell them apart,so some people may call this thread useless.
The reason i made this thread is to inform players who are new to the game,and people who don't know this yet.
Better late than never,in any case.
