How to avoid Scammers:

Oh hello there! Tired of being scammed? Annoyed about your friends being scammed? Well,you came to the right place!
First of all,what is a scammer?

The meaning of Scammers:
A scammer is a person that is dishonest and is a fraud.

Now we could talk about them:

Drop Games:
This is a common scam when it is called a ''game''. The scammer's task is to ask players in the lobby if they want to play games or not. These are some of their quotes:
''Who wants to play a game? WITH PRIZES?!''
''Who wants 10K?''
However the first quote doesn't always mean drop games. They sometimes mean other games like Bottomless games etc.
Drop games are scams where you drop your items with another person and the rarest ''wins''.

Payaways:
Payaways are quite rare in the game because of how useless they are nowadays. However if you do see one. Make sure you check the place before buying the prizes. There is a 96% chance that it's a scam so DON'T BUY THEM. Payaways are a more evil-like version of Giveaways. There more like pay-to-lose games.

Free pets!:
Who never likes pets? These adorable little buddies like to play with their owner! That's why scammers use them to fool people. They go around in realms saying ''WHO WANTS A FREE PET?!'' and then the victim adds them then the scammer goes to their realm. The scammer will say ''Give me perm or no pet.'' The victim gives them perm then the scammer has the chance to destroy the realm and steal the player's stuff.
Fun Fact: I said ''WHO WANTS A FREE PET?!'' once but not in a scamming matter. I was trying to prank the player when they say ''Me!''. then I say ''I don't have one! XD''
Another Lame Fun Fact: I once fell for this and then the ''scammer'' stole my hat I was selling but gave me replacements instead.

The Vend Scam:
''OMG DORKMOBILE FOR 100C!'' Now...that may seem legit but actually they higher the price into 100K. Or maybe if they are greedy enough,they could replace it with a dirt block or footsteps! So that's why you should ALWAYS read before you buy from vends.

Permission:
This is quite common as well. In case you didn't know,the scammer says ''Who needs help with their realm?'' then the victim says me and add him/her. The victim goes to their realm and then the scammer will ask for perm. The victim gives him/her perm. The scammer will steal your stuff and anything that comes it's way! It could be your pet! It could be your krampus! You never know! So you should stay by the scammer at all costs. But if there is another person in this realm. The scammer will teleport to him and steal everything. That's why you must be careful!

Luck Games:
Luck games are these things that exist. They usually appear as Dice Games. However not all Dice Games are scams. If there free then it's okay. If it's not...Let's just say it doesn't go so well... Pick-A-Block is also one of them unless if there free. Pick-A-Block is a game where you choose a block and hope you get a good prize.

That's it for today! Suggest them down here if I missed some!

    or just dont communicate with ppl easy

    Lol why? Lets say u want to try makin friends, or bored and want to play someone’s games.
    Hes htrying to help and its like ur pointing its pointless, but yeh anyways
    Thx for this good guide! Keep it up.

    Oh btw you missed the vends scam, for example: Holla said He sells a Dork car for 1k! But theres a scaffold blockin. Once he opened, for sure people will buy it quickly since they thought its cheap, but the price is ctually 10k which is More than the price at c store!

    A scam is something that is a scheme created to get something from someone. It never changes. So to say "in cubic castles..." is affecting the truth a bit. There are many threads about this, so we don't really need a new one. I don't mean to "mini mod", it's just the words Scamander scammer are WAY overused. Find a new word!

    I edited the scam meaning. Plus scammer is supposed to be used in Cubic Castles when people steal stuff. Plus your not mini-modding. Plus what if the other threads are outdated?
    What if there different and it's OUTSIDE the game?

    There are also those scammers who claim to have been scammed and ask for help xD

    And also those who swap the thing in the cash register with an exactly same thing that is inferior from what you have agreed upon. For example, swapping a 33x33 room to a 5x5 room without saying so, making you pay for more than you should

    Not to be toxic, but the supermajority of the people who would fall for these scams don't use the forums.
