Scammers... Can They Quit?

Most of us have been scammed, and if you haven't, get ready. We all know scammers are out there, but none of us seems to know how to stop it.

Will scammers ever totally stop scamming people? In my opinion, if you are scammed it is your own fault. Not to be mean or anything, but you should know to only trade with people you know and trust.

Untrustworthy people are everywhere. Not even Whyville knows how to stop them, so how can we? Well, all you have to do is just follow these four simple rules:

  1. Don't scam anyone or people will tell others and you will get a bad name on Whyville. Trust me!
  2. If you must trade, try to do it only with people you know. If you don't, you'll never know if you will get scammed.
  3. Try to talk to people who just got scammed for the first time. Make them understand how to protect themselves! You might also help get some of that information into your head!
  4. If you do get scammed, talk to people you trust to get some of that weight off your head!
If you get scammed, don't blame it on Whyville. It is not anyone's fault but yours. Don't trade with someone you don't know or trust.

This is gary4life saying, be careful!
