  • [SCAM] Fake Mail "Congratulations This is (VM)"

    Hello all,

    Some players indicate that some abuser has sent out fake messages to players about claiming an event reward. Do not follow the URL in the following message, it is a scam.

    [Scam] Fake Mail: "Congratulations This is (VM)"

    Official WEBZEN staff, or (VM)izakit, will never message any player in-game about claiming a reward. All official event reward distributions are made through official WEBZEN staff. Never follow suspicious URL links, except for or

    Stay safe!

          Yep, you're right and it's crazy. This might seem like very obvious information to many people BUT this is a good time to say yet again to refrain from sharing account info with others. You would be surprised what kind of information people can pull from successfully phishing one person.

          They can get into email accounts, social media, pull up conversations in iMessage, all sorts of crazy stuff. Just be safe folks, keep everything secure.

              Very nice work from the abuser pretending to act like a very well known character in-game (Fasterion) to gather info about players.

              Once again as we all know: WEBZEN team doesn't ask for account info in-game. The only way we "ask" for info is through direct inquiries once again you contact us.

              Don't share account info in game...Never!
