TGIF!!! Hello everyone! I have heard reports of scammers and scams happening again so I wanted to use my blog to provide yet another reminder, a few things you can do to protect yourself and your horses.
- Don’t buy/sell horses to avatars that are only one day old.
- Always set prices of your horses in your inventory.
- Don’t buy horses from random people iming you.
- Always check the creator of the horse, K-9 or Barnyard Bird. It should always without exception be JJ Cerna for horses, Ancient Biscuit for K-9s and Mazelina Menna for Barnyard Birds.
- NEVER I mean never buy a duplicated horse or a horse that you haven’t seen rezzed in Secondlife.
Amaretto cannot be there to help you at every horse sale nor can we refund you if you buy a copybotted horse or a duplicated horse. You have to protect yourself against these people in Secondlife, if you do fall victim to one of these scams the best thing to do is file a abuse report them to Linden Lab.
Please be responsible and protect yourself, it’s sad that this even has to be a connection. But you guys have to be proactive and protect yourself against such scams and report all scammers to Linden Lab with an abuse report.
I also want to include what Jaysin wrote on the forum on “How to Protect Yourself” Straight from the Horses Mouth:
There have been some issues with a griefer lately pretending to give out free stuff that if you wear it or give it debit permissions it will drain your Linden balance. I just wanted to give out a few tips about protecting yourself from these kinds of griefers and thieves.
1.) Always pay attention to who is giving you things. If you don’t know them don’t wear it… only rez it. If it asks you to give it debit permissions DECLINE IT!!!! Then delete it and purge it from your inventory.
2.) When dealing with Amaretto products they are no modify, no copy, no transfer. They can only be purchased from an Amaretto store and Marketplace or be given by one of the three Amaretto Business Avatars JJ Cerna, Ancient Biscuit, and Mazelina Menna. Any other avatar trying to give out Amaretto Products (other than animals of course) is a griefer or copybotter. Real Amaretto products will never ask for debt permissions!!!!
Happy breeding everyone until next time!!!
