Whyville Scams

Guest Writer

Recently there has been a pair of lousy scams going around Whyville, and I think that everyone should know about them.

One of the scams was someone offering you a place on the Whyville city council -- which doesn't even exist. The person would ask you questions like, "What is your password?" and much other personal information. What you should do in this case is 911 report the y-mail immediately. And of course, do not respond to the letter.

Another that went around a lot claimed that city hall was telling to send clams, because of inappropriate behavior. But we all know that City Hall does not ask for clams -- they will either find you automatically, mute you, or if it is really bad, then they will banish you from Whyville (but it has to be really bad for them to do that).

This is pretygal9 signing out, and remember, never give out your password to anyone!
