Post subject:  Beware of scammers!

We want to remind our users and community of the importance of downloading scripts only from EasyUO.com and never accepting scripts from players you may meet in game.

Recently there has been a resurgence of the "Suit Drop Scam", which we will outline below so you may never fall victim.

Step 1) The Scammer will tell you how awesome this script he has is, and he'll be nice enough to email/send it to you.

What actually happened: The scammer sent you a script that may be fully functional, but will also have a Sub in it to do any combination of the following things depending on what he's trying to steal from you:
- Pull items off paperdoll and throw on the ground
- Empty backpack and throw on the ground
- Dismount pet and release pet [this has not been reported yet, but be aware it could potentially occur]

Step 2) When the scammer does the Trigger action, which is normally saying a specific word or phrase, the sub will kick into effect. It will completely block you out of closing down the client or pausing the script, and your items will be dropped on the ground.

This is VERY EASY TO AVOID. DO NOT ACCEPT SCRIPTS FROM PLAYERS YOU MEET IN THE GAME. We have a very large script library of all of the UO actions you would need to do. If you would like a script that you don't see you can post in the Script Request Forum.

It's unfortunate when things like this occur, but the only one that can stop it from happening is You. Do not accept any scripts from anyone you meet in game..
