QUOTE(European MapleStory)
Dear Maplers,

Nowadays, the number of scammers and ways of scamming has rapidly increased. The most typical way of scamming is:

1. Scammers ask for a trade.
2. Scammers say that they can double usersí mesos or items.
3. Scammers tell the users to put up certain amount of mesos or certain items in the trade screen and to hit tap > tap > Spacebar > Enter
4. Scammers end the trade and run away with the mesos or items.

Please try not to be taken in by the seductive words of scammers so that you can avoid such accidents.

Many thanks for your support and cooperation.

Happy, "safe" Mapling!

You heard them! I once got scammed by this one. I was scammed by a Lv15 Rogue and he told me loads of stuff and then I put in 500k and like 4 pairs of stars. I got scammed.

Don't do it. Just be safe eh XD.

Weird, that scam's been in gMS for over a year...

Also, you're supposed to hit 'Tab', not 'tap'. They should probably check that. Oh well, at least they're trying to let the community know.

Don't do what a stranger tells you to. Simple as that. It's more common sense, but seeing that the target audience for this game does not have much of that, this is a good (though too late for a few gullible people) warning.

It still amazes me why people don't get the "I wonder why he'd help me if he could make himself richer" question in their heads.

Yes, Please note this is European MapleStory.

Indeed, I do believe they've made a typo there however, how do you make a typo from b to p? Surely European MapleStory Staff aren't becoming dumb like Global MapleStory Staff, Right?

It is tab instead of tap because ofcourse there is no tap button. Im not going to change it though, I quote them to make it the official announcement from the EMS Website, If they change it I'll change it, They made the typo not me.
