    Hello all,

    Recently we've received reports from players of fake Skype accounts that are pretending to be CubeCraft staff. They're asking for usernames & passwords in exchange for ranks or in-game items. Please be aware that these are scam/phishing people that want your personal information and no one at CubeCraft Games is related to these accounts. CubeCraft staff DO NOT contact players using Skype, we either use the forums or Discord (https://discord.gg/cubecraft)

    For example, take the profile below.
    [​IMG]
    As you can obviously see this isn't the real @Efcluke94 - he can never be replaced. He also isn't from the United States & doesn't speak Spanish.

    Please do not accept these accounts and report them to us straight away by reply to this thread.

    Thanks,
    Joe.

    Oh boy that sounds scary :s
    Thank you for addressing this, there are probably some users who have already fallen victim to this. Even better that you replaced the out-dated notice with this thread so that everybody will see it :)

    Well, that's what comes with an amazing server.. ;) Thanks for the warning though, will there be any consequences for this? Or is it a sake of just a caution? :)

    If you fall for something like that you probably deserve what's coming to you.

    Not necessarily. It may seem like a stupid thing to fall for to you, but minecraft is marketed towards children, and has a main demographic of users between ages 15-21. There are a number of factors as to why somebody might fall for a phishing scam like this, perhaps their parents aren't as wealthy and cannot afford to buy their child a rank. Besides, it does look genuine with Efcluke's name and a cubecraftgames logo for a profile picture, and some people are just too trusting.
