Lately there have been attempts to deceive and lure players into giving away sensitive account information in-game, such as in the image below.



Beware - this is NOT sent from support/devs/"ninja team"! Note that support will never ask for your password, under ANY circumstances. So for the safety of your own account and its contents - do NOT share any sensitive information.

Be careful and happy gaming

Yes, unfortunately that is very true. We still receive reports of stolen accounts very frequently.

I'm also surprised by how many users are confident sharing their login information for the purpose of having another player "pilot" their account. This is one of the most common factor in the theft reports we receive. Hopefully this post will help at least SOME and also perhaps make some players reconsider their view on piloting. But yeah - there are many naive souls out there :/

Whenever someone asks me if I want them to cover me for events, I just ask myself: would I entrust this person with the money I've invested into this account? Makes incredibly easy to deny the offer

What do you ask yourself, if they ask you to pilot them?

Exactly.  One of the things I always take into account.  Is the person who wants to "pilot" my account stronger than me, or weaker than me.  if they are weaker than me, then i DENY, because they want a stronger account.  if they are stronger than me, than I MIGHT consider it, depending on how well i know the person.


I have 1 person who pilots my account, and i know and trust the person.  he has a br of almost 7 million, so he doesn't really worry about me being better lolz.  But he trusts me with his account as well, so that is the only time i ever have anyone pilot my account.

I don't fall for stupid emails like that one.  
First,  The username should be JoyFun Operation Team
Second, It doesn't say WHAT event you ranked in, and the prize you get
Third, They don't need any info, they already have our info
Fourth, Any prizes you get are given to you as an attachment in the mail
Fifth,  WHAT KIND OF USERNAME IS TEACH SHARK????????

If it was from the devs, then it would be more like this:

Congratulations,

You have been selected to receive a prize of 4,000 gold.  Just top-up $100 ( Do the math ) and then you will get your prize.  Enjoy your game,

-Devs
