Possible Con Artist Beware!Follow

1st post ever...I had to register just to warn you Seraphians! ^^ Anyways, there is a new player amongst us who've just crossed over within the last month to Seraph from Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh is now minus 1 Kraken Club - fact, but one that has happened a while ago. Some of you probably know the story, after I find the link I'll add it here in an edit, but sadly I have no search capabilities (and I'm not paying, sorry Alla). His name is "Xakk" and it's not known if the RL player behind him now is the same person or not, but his toon is now with us regardless. This little Taru may or may not be dangerous due to this reason. Looking him up on other sites such as www.ffxiah.com or www.ffxiplayers.com has not helped any. I'm merely giving a caution out to those who may cross his path...so you may shrug this off as nothing if you'd like. But if I were you, I would not instill full trust in such a person. Thanks for your time, and enjoy the game - safely!

If we made an **** probe, named it dorthy, and shoved it up a suspected cheapskate's ****, we could increase ripoff warning times from 3 to 15 minutes?

Allegations of wrongdoing carry more weight if not posted from a 1-post sock account.

RPAOIDH.

(Real posting account or it didn't happen.)

Sorry if my warnings bear no weight, and I never expected everyone to fully believe me anyway. But I have a trusted co-worker from that server so my resources are not just mere allegations or figments of imagination. I'm not here to bash the guy. I'm not here to get you guys to bash the guy. I can't prove anything. It's a he said/she said story to you all, so again pls take it as you'd like. That's why you see words such as "Possible Con" and "Warning", I was merely trying to caution everyone that reads this is all. And to Laverda, I'm not Alla forum lingo savvy, but if you're saying I should use my "real" account this is my only one. If I have to have a hundred "1-sentence" postings in this drama filled forum to earn some sort of credibility, it's just not going to happen. Only reason I'm doing this this time, is I'm at work...and working hard obviously.

Last post ever, I realized while I'm working that this is obviously a waste of time. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing from here, for me, but I don't want to get drawn into this any further. But to those who read this, interprit the way you want but I wouldn't bother posting anything. Let the thread die out because I've said what I wanted and won't be back. Sorry for your time apparently wasted...

Nonono don't get me wrong, I'll definitely keep your warning in mind when I run into this 'Xakk' character; It will be in mind if /when i ever bump into him and first impressions are going through. Just sayin' its not very weighty of an opinion since we don't know who you are, there's no face to you , ya know?;

Buut anyways. Warnings come and go, your name is just funny because its..just made me giggle a bit. o.0 'we have our own warning system now, its official cuz someone made the profile name' xD

Hahaha, yeah, well, my upbroinging tells me I should always try to adapt the other person's use of language in order to make him or her feel more comfortable. So here:

EPMORACBFOL

(Even posts made on real accounts can be full of lies)

I do appreciate a warning now and then though.

I love it. :)

Seriously, though, even posts made on real accounts are generally expected to back up their allegations with substantiated details. It's all too easy to say "watch out for this guy" and pin something on them. Even if the poster honestly believes they've been ripped off, there are often two sides to the story.

The OP had both the warning flags for "take this with a grain of salt": vague unsubstantiated allegations, and a one-post sock account.

I'm sorry, but anything named SeraphWarning is as much a sock as something like LaverdaSucks would be. Even if it's someone's geniune first post on a forum, I somehow don't expect to see the name SeraphWarning as a regular participant in general discussion.

So, a bunch of my friends have come to me asking why someone or someones would say these things about me. Hello, this is the current Xakk on the Seraph server. I did some research and found a couple of sites scourning what is now my name on the seraph server. I'd just like to let you all know that, as applied to me, none of this information is true. I would never do something like this. I have received several comments/posts/pms regarding this information and it is false. My account remained inactive for months and the only reason I returned was because my old friends had told me that they had started over on Seraph and that they'd love for me to join them. Whether or not someone else under the name Xakk committed such an atrocity is beyond me, but I assure you that the Xakk now playing on Seraph is a fun, happy, playful Tarutaru that means noone any harm. With an exception to Xianguah, due to his/her lack of respect to other players. Part of me even suspects this whole thing was orchestrated by him/her. But life goes on, and I just wanted to take this chance to clear my name.

Thank You, and I hope to see you ingame ^^
