jnSafety Team Alert - Premium Email Scam
  • Posted by Terry
  • Posted on May 10, 2008, 6:09 pm NST

Hmm, I actually kind of like doing these newsposts. They're fun. (Of course, not fun because the posts are about scams but fun because I get to write. :P)

Anyways, there is an email being sent by a fake TNT Staff Member asking for a username, password and your PIN number because you posted your email address on Neopets. Below is a example email, received by our source. (Thanks, by the way!)

Fake TNT Staff Email Sample
Dear USERNAME,

One of our neomail monitors (Matt) discovered that you had posted your email address on our website, this causes problems that cannot be dealt with within our site. If you would have read the terms and conditions of the chat boards, you would have known this. To clear this from you record, (three strikes and your account will be frozen, this is your 1st warning) (If you do NOT reply to this message within 1 day of getting it your account will permanently be deleted and ALL your connecting accounts) reply to this message with these two things: 1. Send us the details on why you posted your email address. 2. Send us your Neopets user name and password so that we may verify that it was you and not a hacker who posted the email address. 3. Your pin number Don't worry, if you tell us your user name and password, we won't freeze you. We only advise you not to make more than four accounts. If you follow these instructions, your user name should be cleared of this offense. One more thing, we understand if you cannot remember when exactly you posted your email address this may be because our system is busy solving all different problems with the site that we do not attend to some problems immediately.

Yours Sincerely,
The Neopets Team


As stated in MANY, many Neopets Editorials and the Wall of Shame (and many other places as well), The Neopets Team will NEVER ask for your password and PIN Number. If you receive one of these emails, simply delete it.

It's also fairly obvious to tell between a real email Neopets email address and a fake email address. If they use a free email (e.g. @gmail, @yahoo, @hotmail/msn/live), it's most likely fake. If they do not use proper grammar, it's most likely fake. If it's not from "NAME@support.neopets.com", it's most likely fake. And if they ask for any account information (e.g. password/PIN number), it's VERY fake.

Mass hysteria broke out among the citizens of Tyrannia today, as they awoke to discover their most beloved landmarks blocked by huge piles of mysterious boulders!

Where the boulders came from is unknown, but Tyrannia's Council of Elders is begging fellow Neopians to come to Tyrannia and smash them!
