    You can't know for certain that this person has been abuse-reporting you because LL do not reveal this sort of information. It is more likely the person is telling you they have AR-ed you as a scare-tactic. If they repeatedly say this to you then your best defence is to send the chatlogs to LL in an abuse report claiming harrassment. But I would only suggest this is a last resort.

    He's even said it on microphone that he's reporting and mass abuse reporting people left and right, so...?

    And this has only been on voice tbh.

  2. There has been this person that's been hanging out at info hubs and claiming they are the leader of the green lantern anti-grief society team that has crashed sims to counter other griefing, and been abuse reporting people 25+ more to get lindens to ban a certain individual.

    I do believe they should report people when they are griefing sims, but this person has also been abuse reporting me, and several other people that hasn't done anything, and yet,  they get perma banned from SL cause Linden Labs don't care about looking at in-game report tickets.

    Is there a way to do something about this, or do I just have to report him? I'm really scared I'll be permabanned next since SL is my hobby, and my creative outlet.

  3. Hey, so I wanted to change the name and all (sadly you cant only change ur one username.) but the names are so terrifyingly boring! Absolutely nothing really excites me or even want me to change, Please change them again, people have used HEXEM all over the SL grid, and NOVA is the one I'm seeing a lot too.

     

    I'd like Sable, Griefchester, Deadwin, Dismay, or more darker creepy names.

    If is NOT possible to duplicate L$.  L$ are not even an inworld physical item, so there is nothing to duplicate.  L$ are nothing more than a number tied to your account and the information is stored on the Linden servers.  Changing that info in any way, other than the already defined methods of increasing/decreasing the balance, could only be done via a system hack.

    It is possible to steal L$ by hacking accounts and it is possible to obtain them via fraudulent means, but none of that is duplicating the money.  Duplicate means to make an exact copy of something and that is just not possible with L$.

     

    Yeah but still, I've done a support ticket, and the linden staff didn't really confirm if they were "hacked lindens" or whatever.

    I don't think $L can be "duped" or duplicated.  However, it's possible to use a stolen credit card to buy $L, and those are fraudulent.  Some people try to get others in trouble by gifting them with these fraudulently obtained $L, and it can get you banned.  This is why I suggest you report large gifts and ask Linden Lab to check them.

     

    Well the staff that responded to me was completely useless, didn't really give me a yes or no answer if the linden dollars were duped or fraudulent, all they could reply to me was "well if you are UNSURE then you should send the lindens back."

    Of course I'm unsure recieving such huge amounts of lindens, anyone else would be, they didn't even bother to check if the linden dollars were real or not.

    don't you think your original question was a bit premature? Now you filed a ticket on a , most likeley, innocent friend you brought his account in danger, or at least locked/on hold for several days... gréat friend you are.

    "great friend you are." at the expense of getting banned you mean? If I spend these duped L$, I'll possibly get banned if they are duped or fraudulent linden dollars, you'd it in the same position if it was you, so don't even try it.

    No, there is no such think as "duped", "duplicated", or "fake" lindens - the L$ anyway, as there have been people pretending to be Lindens inworld and those are definitely Fake Lindens.

    Neither people nor viewers can duplicate Linden $$.  People can obtain them fraudulently and that will get folks in trouble.

     

    When I talk about L$, I'm saying lindens, when I say the Lindens (as in the staff) I'm talking about moderators, admins, or staff, I don't ever say they are lindens really, but I get your point, glad that you can "point out the mistake" where there wasn't any.

     

    Anywho, yes, there are viewers and there are script/hacks to dupe linden dollars on Second Life, my friend achieved 500 linden dollars, and got banned after when she tried to spend it, she called Linden Labs and got herself unbanned by explaning the full story.

    Even better, @Schimeon, file a Support Case using the Help>Support>Create Case link on this website.  Include the details of the gift, as shown in your $L Transaction History in your Account section.  ASK Linden Lab if this gift is legitimate.  Then, don't spend it until you get a response.  If it's legit, you're fine!  If it's not, LL will remove the money from your account, but you will not get into any trouble.

     

    Aight, I did the support ticket, thank you! this was the most helpful response ever! I stated that I just want a confirmation if they are duped lindens or not.

    And yes, duped lindens are a thing, people have gotten banned from it before, and some viewers/hackers on SL has duped lindens in the past.

    There is no such thing as FAKE L$ - they are all real - though there is such a thing as L$ gotten via fraudulent means.  It is the fraud that you need to worry about, and likely that is what you meant. 

    If the person said they meant to give them to you, but you still feel unsure, follow Molly's advise about the support ticket.  Otherwise, enjoy your good fortune.

    Right, thanks, my other friend said that i should wait for two days before spending it, cause if it is fake, then linden labs will send me an email confirming ithe money came from an auhtorized source, so I'll do the both.

    when we are receive money that we don't know why it was given to us then the first and most common reason is that the person made a mistake - they mean't to give it to someone else

    the best thing to do is not immediately think of a nefarious reason,  to think that it is a simple mistake and give it back to the person who gave it us. Who 99 times out of 100 will IM us and say: thankyou! so much

    when we try to find the person in Search and they do not show up then we can help to protect ourselves by giving the money to Governor Linden and raise a Support Ticket saying that we got L$ from this person. That we can't find them in Search to give it back. So we gave the money to Governor Linden

    this provides a paper trail of our involvement which Linden can check and because of which our account will not be at risk at all

     

     

    Ummmm...Okay, unlikely, this is from a friend, and I asked him about why he gave me so much, and gave me an explanation, sooo not really sure what ur on about.

  11. I was just given 20k lindens, (from a friend, but I don't usually trust all people on SL, even the ones on my friend list.) and I got super scared immediately cause I was thinking "Oh no, I've recieved possible fake lindens, how do I see if its real? How do I go about this? will I get banned forever now?" I dunno, I'm scared, if the lindens are real, I'll be super grateful, but if they are fake, how do I KNOW completely that they are fake?

    LL can check up your AR and check the logs to see the mentioned names and times of the sims going down.  You can file a report without actually being on the sim being griefed.  You just have to back up your proof with names and times for LL to look it up

    not sure they will do that tho, lol, i've had my freinds reporting him aswell now so, best of lucks I guess.

    You need to remove the picture as it contains the persons name and naming and shaming is not allowed on the forums

    You need to file a clear concise abuse report with proof and let LL do their own investigating.   You will not be informed of their decision 

    Done and done.

    and you can't really get a clear concise abuse report or even proof cause he crashes the sim without doing much, he's crashing vilania and nelsonia now 6 times.

  14. so there's this guy called daniel who comes to Nelsonia, and notecard crashes and sim crashes everyone at nelsonia, reason? there's no reason, he's a psychopath.

    and i've been reporting him in like 2 days now nonstop with Linden Labs not doing ANYTHING about it.

    How long does it have to take for someone to get banned fulltime? cause this is ridicoulus.

    I have evidence, and I have videoproof.

     

    note the pic I'm uploading where he's crashing the sim, and his profile isn't loading up, that's what a sim crash does, it locks your avatar in place, and doesn't do *****.
