I won't say the person's name here because I got a slap in the face from a mod the other time I named and shamed someone, but if a mod wants to investigate or report it to WarGaming's upper staff, then please pop me a PM so I can forward you the screenshot. Basically, this spammer was advertising these goods:

 

 PowerLeveling: WOWS $30 for 50,000 EXP,58$ for 100,000 EXP,coupon code "cici" to get 3% discount for Halloween poi~ 3M Credits for 12.6$ ,German Cruiser from I to V for 189$

 

Of course, I've omitted the URL because that would be a very stupid move, but if you see any people posting this in chat or PM, please report them - you'll only lose your money, and you may even lose your precious shipgirls ships. I know I'd be pretty annoyed if my Tenryuu went AWOL.

 

So tl;dr: Only buy stuff from WG. They might be more expensive than what the spammers are trying to offer, but at least a) WG is legit and b) WG will at least tell you where your order is if it doesn't appear in your docks within a short while after purchase.

 

This has been a PSA from your friendly Coburn.

A and B are the 1st and 2nd letters of the alphabet

1+2=3

A Triangle has 3 sides

Half life 3 confirmed

Triangle is also the symbol of the Illuminati

Illuminate has 10 letters

10 minus 2 is 8

and do you know what else has 8 letters?

2 very simple rules of thumb to go by:

1.  If it's not from the game developer it's probably bogus and will hurt you in some way.

2.  If you see it let the authorities for that game developer know
