Carmine's AIM Account Hacked
« on: November 08, 2009, 11:28:16 AM »
I've received word that staffer Carmine Red's AIM account has been hacked, and that whoever hijacked the account is contacting people on his buddy list and asking for money.

IF YOU RECEIVE AN AIM MESSAGE FROM CARMINE ASKING FOR MONEY, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY DO NOT GIVE THIS PERSON MONEY.

If anything, try to pull some information out of them, or get some information about them (IP, for example) out of your AIM logs if you can.  You could also see if you can get a physical address or email address out of them.

Yeah... ummm...

If anything, the REAL Kairon would pay YOU money... money to buy THIRD PARTY GAMES!!!
Carmine Red, Associate Editor

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.

Hey Kairon, can I have 40 bux to buy Dragon Quest V?  It's so damn expensive, even used.  :(
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

This is terrible news :(

It was likely hacked because he was using some shareware IM program that was cheaply made or something.  Seems like a Kairon thing to do :p

Well, after my efforts to resolve this via fraudulent transaction claims processing, I learned to there no protection against this sort of activity, and I'm out of $200.

Lovingly send you goatse's, tubgirls, and horse porn to:

Ross Wissner
roswisner@aol.com

^ This person is $200 happier, so I'm sure he wouldn't mind the extra love you can deliver him.


If someone here wants to honestly borrow money from me and make me feel better about completing an HONEST transaction (or trade/exchange neat stuff), feel free to PM me.

yes

I'm sorry but I have trouble taking anything that Pro says as serious anymore (can you blame me?). So let me just be blunt:

Did this really happen/did you give someone $200 thinking it was Carmine??

Damn dude. If i had paypal I'd start a "reimburse Pro fund" where me and the other members of the fanclub can help you recoup your losses.

Yeah... ummm...

If anything, the REAL Kairon would pay YOU money... money to buy THIRD PARTY GAMES!!!

Can you lend me some money so i can finally get around to buying Ghostbusters Wii??

Please?

I did think it was Carmine.  Carmine's done some favors for me so I would gladly help him out.

But it's not about my LOSS, it's about JUSTICE.  I hope the email-harvesting internet bots do some nice things to that imposterito's account.

If it's justice you want..

then JUSTICE YOU SHALL HAVE!

However, this might be one dark path you will not be able to return from..
