OSRS Mod Jed Scam Story
14 May 2019, 06:39
Well well well Who could have thought that a JMod (probably, highly likely, and almost 100% proof indicates that it was Mod Jed) would involve themselves in something this
Even though they do players dirty by not launching mobile on iOS, removing free staking on Duel Arena, etc., but they also steal from their player-base. Fantastic isn’t it?
Just think about it, 45 billion RS GP could (if you sold it on Probemas using our sell RS gold page) get you 15,750 USD of real-world money. For this kind of cash, you can buy a new car, go on a trip to any country worldwide or merely be a scamming little bastard like Mod Jed (only speculation, not facts).
Back at the time, the post was made, the person who wrote it was accused of RWT himself. The community explained it as simply being greedy and wanting his/her loot back. The person was mostly flamed and laughed at in the comments. However, the mentioned player got the last laugh as more people piled up complaints about suspicious Jagex moderator activity.
On September 20th, 2018, Runescape suspended all Mod Jed Twitter accounts, removed his Runescape accounts, and started a police-led investigation against suspicious actions. They even refunded people who were abused by a greedy unnamed moderator, and the mentioned player got his 45 billion back, others received their stolen goods as well.
It is estimated that the Moderator could have recovered over 100 billion OSRS GP per month. If sold on the market, the gold rounds out to roughly 60,000-65,000 USD. This affair probably went on for a few months, at least, until he was caught and eliminated from the team. But the damage was done.
However, we should expect them to improve the security of their player-base since it is a significant issue when a moderator or administrator can exploit players for their benefit. And they dare to say selling RS gold is bad for the game… Account hacking and stealing from players that is what’s bad for the game.
Let’s hope this never happens again!
