    So I don't want this post to sound like a pity plea, but I hope you'll understand why I'm kind of bummed out after reading.

    A few days ago, I was giving away a whole load of stone and someone whispered to me that I can join his island for a chance to win a spawner (suspicious enough but whatever). I joined the island and he challenged me to find a button to be entered to win, which was easy enough. But as soon as I found it, all I saw in chat was:

    [18:10:00] [main/INFO]: [CHAT] [Shop] You bought 31 Stick from LilPumpTeemo for $310,000.
    [18:10:00] [main/INFO]: [CHAT] [Shop] You don't have enough money!
    [18:10:04] [main/INFO]: [CHAT] [Shop] You can't sell here!
    [18:10:06] [main/INFO]: [CHAT] NotIgelPigel booted you off the island.


    Okay so I'm pretty sure I don't remember clicking either of my mouse buttons, and I certainly don't remember seeing any signs anywhere near the button, but as explained to me, there's little chance of anything happening without clicking, which I accept. There were also two suspicious accounts appearing in my shop the instant after I got booted, spamming my chat with Karlsson08/Karlsson11 bought ~ from you for $~. Now this may or may not have been a coincident but it is surely suspicious (they also offered the same deal when someone asked if anyone was giving away a free spawner, so that almost cemented my suspicions but oh well). But the problem lies with when I contacted staff about this. Devannn_ was very kind and helped solve the issue quickly, swiftly issuing a ban on (I hope at least) the two who shared the scam island (LilPumpTeemo and NotIgelPigel). He said he couldn't find anything related to the Karlssons but it sure was fishy. It was only for 7 days, which didn't seem like much but was better than having them on the server more.

    But there was still the problem of all my money, and by all my money I mean $310k. Now to some people, that is nothing, but to me, it's something I've been saving for some time, and something I've been working towards since I started on this server. Devannn_ and Kerahna told me that they can't help me with generating my money back, but could only give me what they had on their island... which turned out to be only 2 spawners and a diamond sword. If I got my estimations correct, that would get me back MAX about $165k. I'm not necessarily stingy about my money, but losing $310k to scammers (yes I know it was kind of my fault), only to be offered about half of that back as compensation, sucks real hard. I'm posting this here in case some staff can properly help me with my situation. I've tried contacting NoobCrew himself, but I don't really want to waste his time that much (also he's not responding).

    I know I'm not the only one affected by this, but if someone could really help me out, I would be really grateful. More evidence on this can be provided if needed.

    Please help lol,
    - MrAtreck
