    I just got a friend request from an avatar with the word "Entropia" in it and their first PM to me was:

    Website is a fake EU login page.

    Do not be scammed. If Mindark wants to give you peds, they will show up in your ped card or ped flow center automatically. Official Mindark avatars will always use the words "Mindark" and "Official" in them and will speak in local chat in orange text. Only use your game login info on the entropiauniverse.com login page. Get a gold card and create a support case to report any avatars that try to scam you. Offering less/more money than you want for an item is business, not a scam. Scams involve deception to get a person into giving away peds (or in this case, their entire account!).

    Nothing new, just though it might be good to remind people of basic account security.

    Hope you all sent support cases about this so MindArk can act on it

    Just visited the site on my linux machine. It's pretty much what you stated, a fake (though convincing) EU log in page. after you log on, it just redirects you to the real one.

    Reply to support case was received 13 minutes after submission... pretty amazing for one day post-VU. Good job, support.

    One of my socmates got the same "offer" when someone started chatting to him.

    My mate was quick, opened a trade window and offered to color the scammer guy's armor for free. Too bad the offer was declined ;)

    Site is already blocked. But will probably return on some other free hosting account.

    That text in Polish at the top of the page, something "Please don't block..." - which is probably the hoster's (cba.pl, which is a free hosting and apparently places banners on hosted sites) reaction to AdBlock, is an epic fail for disguise :)
