Mod Scam, returns?

An Interesting user signed up just a few minutes ago.

His user name, Smarty_

Just like the scam before, this guy is also imitating the mod’s account using Smarty’s avatar and signature.

See his (or her) profile here:

http://forums.gamemaker.nl/index.php?showuser=59042

So far he hasn’t posted, nor has he validated his account.

  1. hmm… almos the same username and avatar of the moderator, the GMC seems to be under attack, but by who? we have to root this guy out before he/she causes too much damage

  2. I say it’s Phoenix, the guy who also called himself Hazmat and claimsMark ‘raped’ him. He’s been hacking multiple GM forums, and also spammed GMG with my name >:C

    Or perhaps it’s just a random nub who doesn’t know anything about GM and thinks it’s a cool name…

  3. A random nub wouldn’t pick such a name, and proceed to use the mod’s avatar and signature, its obviously someone with malicious intentions. However its a stupid someone who didn’t realize you can’t use some random email when you sign-up (referring to not being validated)

  4. In all my years at the GMC, I thought I would never see this. Anyone remmebr the good ole days??? Anyway, in my expereinece, you really cant do anything. Just stay smart, and dont do anything stupid.

  5. HAHAHAHA!!!
    You little freaks with your sniveling ideals. DId you not see? It isnt one person. Its a whole army of people, wanting to get back at Mark! And to prove that I sent these PMS and impersonated Mods, heres a little bit of info:

    5 People will be receieving PMs asking for thier username, password, and e-mail address.

    It has begun. Marks rain of Game Maker will be undone. The noobs will be weeded out, and then the more senior members will be taked away. No one will be left.

    Dont stand in our way

  6. why are you doing this

  7. Haha, 😀 you sound like someone from a bad fantasy book! You forgot some thing though, how about a Dark Prophecy and maybe a mysterious brotherhood? Aww, sorry, I don’t believe it, it sounds more like a twelve-year-old having fun with a friend, spamming random sites. 😉

    PS. DaMaGeD_, why don’t you start reading Shakespeare or something, fantasy isn’t that good… ^^

  8. umm.. DaMaGeD_ don’t you know that they know your IP adress when you post on this site? And with a little bit of searching, we could know where you live. SO stop being a n00b 😉 You have been warned!

  9. MAN!!

    DaMaGeD, get a life!! 😛

    IF you think you can hack our accounts by simply asking us in a crappy attempt to impersonate a moderator, think again! All of us at the GMC are simply too smart for your foolish scheme

  10. cheeseisgood….. don’t talk about “DaMaGeD”.. that’s the mod. Talk about “DaMaGeD_” the impostor 😀

  11. No, sadly. Most people at the GMC will fall for it. A pretty infallible test of someone is to goto their profile, (make sure it is actually at forums.gamemaker.nl) and look at that little ranking bar.

  12. No, you cant find me, not when I am using a library computer
    And, you can just refresh your DNS to get a nw IP address
    Haha, nice try
    And the whole ‘Dark prophecy THing’, wtf is with that? Many people here say crakcer, which means ‘whitie’ in america. So maybe things have multiple meanings?
    And its not just me. There are many others. Dont you think that I know who hacked Marks account? Are you that stupid that you dont realize that there are more than a person doing this?
    And I am not twelve. It’d be a lot funnier if I were: a twelve year old casuing havoc is a lot better than a 17 year old, eh?
    And if you fall for it, its not our fault. You shoudlnt be so stupid.
    And doesnt matter if im banned
    Im just a part of the puzzle. Isnt that Shakesperean?

  13. O, and Jax-heres an answer:

    Because we can

  14. “And the whole ‘Dark prophecy THing’, wtf is with that?”
    I mean that you sound totally ridicolous. ^^

    “Im just a part of the puzzle. Isnt that Shakesperean?”
    Why would I know, I read fantasy 😉

    So to pretty much sum up what I think of you, you are ridicoulus. You write like if you were a part of some high organisation just about to mount a second 9/11-attack, and still you are probably only maybe five bored guys sitting home and spamming sites. You don’t have to be a uber1337 super-cracker to spam GMC and send scam-pms. Almost anyone could do that. Also, hiding up they’re traces could almost anyone also do.

    “Because we can”
    Mommy, mommy, look what I can do! I can spam a site! Isn’t it cool??? Weee!! ^^

    …and how old were you…?

  15. Ugh….look, I was told by the guy who hacked Marks account to impersonate ONE mod
    I didnt imperosnate Smarty, or hpapillon, it was propably hazmat, dum fcuker.
    Anyways, :

    hahaha! you made me laugh. Congrats on that!
    A second 9/11? Nah, I would have to be Bush. And its not some high tech sercret organiziation, its this guy who PMed me on a GMC related forum-I forget the nbame, GMC Coop, somehthiong like that-and asked me to do it.
    And Im not bored, just crazt enough to do something.
    And since Im spilling the beans, the guy who hacked marks account?
    Hes an active member of the GMC, since ’03
    Dont believe me? Then don’t, I dont care
    And if you say; “No, ur just a bored n00b that wanted some fun”, no, I am a guy
    who was asked a favor
    And technically, its cause THEY can
    Well, im done. My part in this thing is over.
    And one more thing: I’m a girl.

  16. No way! Mark, or one of the mods, would know that a member from the GMC
    hakced his account! U have to be lying!

  17. Rofl. DaMaGeD probably cant hack for shit.
    He’s a social engineer script kiddy, judging from the idiotic PM’s.

    In other word’s, he is gay.

  18. It’s funny DaMaGeD_, in that you’ll most likely only obtain idiot’s account information with your scheme. Anyone who’s worth hacking isn’t dumb enough to fall for this.

    “Well, im done. My part in this thing is over.”

    This “thing?” God, you’re acting as if you were summoned to a higher calling. Tell me, what do you hope to achieve from this? It’s not like you’re going to bring down a programming tool or its creator.

  19. haha, yeah…Weriously, Damaged_, just stop. Once is enough
    Well, none is enough, but that aint a saying, is it?

  20. ok, now… ok… right.. hmm kkkk what the…

    Right… OMG… :S

    Mr. DaMaGeD_,

    I do understand that I Chirantha needs to respect you. Right. Now please can I know exactly what made want to hack Mark’s account? There is a reason to everything. Why are you taking ravenge on a educational forum like the GMC?

    Look, its ok for you to go and attack a normal funny forum with spam. But this isn’t a normal forum. Its a forum of learning. And mind you the GMC made me a good programmer. I sure you have feelings I do to. And I know that you are doing/did these things because your feelings were hurt. Please accept my applogize on behalf of the GMC if the GMC has done wrong to you.

    Due to your work the Game Maker project by Mark might close (the GMC might close) then do you think you won? Not really I my self might personally or anyother members might found a server and keep the GMC running. We are not talking about a small project here. This project is used by MANY people in the world far more than you can imagine and they will want to see devolopment and not this spam and attacks. This is the samething the LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eleam) is doing, they are fighting for something they will never get in the 20th century or the next. And yes, the LTTE also has a army and we noticed how strong their child soilders were when the 80 men of Sri Lankan Army forces killed almost 750 child soilders and all were age 13-18.

    Do you think attemting to disrupt the GMC’s day to day activities will do any good. Actually you will not be disrupting a normal forum but you will be disrupting education. Hey! when you get married and have kids and when those kids goto school how about we disrupt the school’s day to day activity? Wouldn’t it make you sad? You kids future all going away infront of your eye’s.

    My only advice to you is NEVER fight a war when you know you can’t gain anything.

    Thank you,
    Please Understand,
    Chirantha (Sri Lankan)

  21. hmm,

    I’m not sure… But…

    These words, writing Patten. Language, short words seem very… familiar. Oh man, I think I have spoken to him. :/ I’ll try to check through. I have one person that knowns every kid in the GMC.

  22. rofl… damaged_ you noob.

    Ir t3h l33t 1 h4x t3h 5uXx0r f0ru^^5!!!!111!

    Get a life.

  23. Well, Ive been banned from the GMC from my other account, leeroyjenkins.
    Look, I DIDNT HACK HIS ACCOUNT. NOT ME? Understand?
    And the GMC didnt harm me. No one did on the forums. I had good times.
    Due to GM, I became a great programmer. So I want everyone to know that
    I have nothing against Mark, Game Maker, or the GMC. I just had a few drinks,
    someone talked me into spamming, and I got banned. Simply? I made a mistake.
    And I am not disrupting it day-to-day. Again, I made a mistake.
    I apologize to anyone who has been hurt. But Id like to clear up:
    I DID NOT IMITATE SMARTY OR HPAPILLON! IT WASNT ME!
    Dont believe me? Don’t.
    Also, I am asking the mod Takagi to send out PMs explaining my behavior.
    I made a mistake.
    I guess Im paying for it.
    ~LJ/hazmat..sucks/DaMaGeD_

    P.S.
    1337 speak sucks…you should get a life and speak english, maybe?

    i liked that post 😀

  25. Hello all,

    I am starting a “clan” to get rid of the fake moderators once and for all. To join and help, go to kyrocomputing.co.nr forums and pm me, my user is kyroadmin.
    I hope to see ya there!

  26. Mr, DaMaGeD_,

    I understand what you mean. And I know that your paying for what you did. I’m sorry but I cannot do anything about your ban. But the good part is that you understand you made a mistake. That is very good 🙂 I trust you not to spam again 🙂 you are a very kind person.

    And all you other people… Don’t flame him. 😡 we don’t want to make him mad now do we?

    Thank you,
    Chirantha

  27. This is insanity.

    The GMC is (no offense) a forum for FRICKIN’ NERDS (myself included)!

    What the hell do you gain by attacking or spamming it? That’s like bombing anonymous country #72 in South America. YOU GAIN NOTHING! What do you want, your own Wikipedia entry?! “The Game Maker Hacker”?!

    The world is bad enough. What attack something this small?

  28. I still really doubt that this person is really the hacker, this is all really stupid.

    >>Well, Ive been banned from the GMC from my other account, leeroyjenkins.

    It’s not banned. Takagi lowered it’s karma, but it’s not banned.

    http://forums.gamemaker.nl/index.php?showuser=47706

  29. Sorry, my mistake
    And I didnt attack it, I had a few drinks and did something stupid.

  30. whatever you say damaged

  31. Oh, for god’s sake… didn’t the majority of us vote for the “No Going Online When You’re FREAKING DRUNK!!!!” idea?!

  32. Well, when you’re drunk, you’ll go online anyway. So stop criticizing ME when I made a mistake. When you’re drunk, yopu dont really have control over your actions.
    And dont believe me, cheeseisgood. I dont care.

  33. whatever

  34. mod scam
    sounds fun i may try
    get some ones password then there doomed ha hahahaha
    thanks for the idea

  35. phhhp, dont
    Ever heard of an IP, dummy?

  36. also, its flat out WRONG

  37. Look who’s talking…

  38. for the last time, I was drunk! I made a mistake, cant u just forgive me?

  39. A better idea than arguing would be to report the person who talked you into it.

  40. -bendodge-
    “A better idea than arguing would be to report the person who talked you into it.”

    good idea

    wait a sec. he has no account… how could he report it?

  41. are you that hazmat guy?

  42. no, I am not hazmat…..and my friend uses flash, not GM, so I cant report him if he doesnt have an account. ANd I wouldnt report him, cause its my fault

  43. here’s the ultimate solutotio to a ton of bad things in the world:

    DON’T GET DRUNK!!!!!

  44. “It has begun. Marks rain of Game Maker will be undone. The noobs will be weeded out, and then the more senior members will be taked away. No one will be left.

    Dont stand in our way”

    Hah. That’s so lame.

    Get a life.
