YoVille Website Scams
  
YoVille website scams are one of the biggest scams that YoVille Players fall into. Usually to get into these the scammer makes an event and usually names it something like “Free YoCash” or “Free 2008 Costumes.” They then put the website address in the event description or put “Link in message box.” Usually the owner is not there at the event so the people who know it’s a scam who go there cannot get snapshots or report the person.

On the website they usually have a entry form where you put your first and last name, then they want your Facebook email and password so they can log into your account and supposedly give you the yocash, yocoins, or items. This Ladies and gentlemen is not real they DO NOT give you the yocash, or yocoins, or any items, they steal everything you have (except free gifts or cheap items).

To make a point to you all if they make a website to give you items or yocash and they want your login for Facebook why can’t they just give you the items in YoVille? If they make a website they must have tons of the items to supply for you so they should have them in their inventory right there at the event! Now with Yocash if they were to get on your Facebook and use their credit card to give you YoCash the credit card saves into the system and you can just click the credit card option when buying and it shows your past credit card and it has all that information. In this case they can give you a yocash card code.

Zynga never asks for your password so don’t ever give it out TO ANYONE unless maybe a best friend that’s trustworthy that wants to get on your account.

Notice in the picture that the link (highlighted in a red oval) is not a Zynga website or any of the Zynga official game websites. Also with an arrow pointing at it they ask for your Facebook login. Zynga does not ask for your password. They may ask for your email to contact you for your support requests or game news but NEVER your password!

To Recover from getting scammed by giving your Facebook information out to a malicious website you can simply change your password if you have recently just done this like a few minutes to a few hours ago if they have not gotten into your account yet. If they have you need to contact Zynga of course to get your items back (usually everything). Usually if they hack your account they change your password (if it’s the same password for your email). They then go into your email and they approve that the password was changed. If this has happened go to the Facebook help portal @ http://www.facebook.com/help/




Remember that when contacting Zynga and Facebook you need to tell them the full detailed story or what has happened. Zynga will investigate for up to a few days to a few weeks depending on how much you have lost. Contacting Facebook on the other hand will only be a 1-2 day wait. But if you try logging in with your old password they may tell you your password was changed but was it you that did it? Then they can click the link they give you and complete the form with the questions they give you.


Sometimes the website is decked out to look exactly like Facebook but the top url is different. Remember to look to be sure that the url says Facebook.com! If you end “logging in” which means filling out the email and password spots on the fake decked out non Facebook website your info has been sent to the scammer/hacker. In this case change your password right away and your email if you want. Your password is the main key that you must change if this happens. Usually after you send the info on the fake fb page they port you to the real Facebook home page and it’s not on their Fake website.
