Chat Username(If Applicable)*: Yode, Sam, Boris (Yes all of them involved in this case)
Describe in detail in your words what happened:
I saw their thread again on tribot, and decided to hop for 50m gold. Purchased normally, and sent paypal email confirmation to Yode, then Yode asked for my Drivers out of sudden along with "I authorize this transaction" paper, despite me having pristine clear history of over 500m+ purchases with them. Sure, I gave it, then he wants to see my social security number.
At this point I said fuck off cause with that, you can take up to 70k loan in my name from many local loan shark companies in here from their websites in under 10 minutes. No way I give that info to some OSRS Gold site.
So, then it was time for refund, and guess what? They refused to deliver, refused to refund and refused to let me talk with a manager.
So I threathened them with chargeback, and then manager joined.
So he avoids the question about what to do next.
After that I rejoin the chat and get boris to say this following:
Ok so, 4-6 hours? Then I'll go to sleep.
At this morning I ask again wheres the money.
Again, more empty promises, so I open paypal chargeback.
DO NOT DEAL WITH THESE SCAMMERS! THREAD TITLE SAYS NO ID, BUT THEY ASK FOR YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER.
Not even sure if this is technically allowed, but I want to save people from experiencing the same troubles I did. This is in no way meant to absolve myself of any actions i have taken, but merely to share my experience with others to advise them to stay clear of that place altogether.
For some background, I am one of the largest account makers in the RS2 marketplace, with over 800,000 sold this year alone. This was no small task and it took me 8 hours a day for upwards of six months to get the operation running, which included breaking Jagex's detection methods for tutorial island.
After OSBot gained a personal and childlike vendetta against me for no reason other than my successes, I was banned from their forums permanently, which is why I came to TRIBot. I actually gave more information on my introduction thread here:
While I had been banned from the forums, they still allowed me access to the client and $~200 worth of scripts I paid for with hard earned goldfarming money. I figured I would cut my losses which mainly pertained to advertisement threads for script and account sales, and continue running my tutorial farm in the background without making any appearances on the forums. I continued doing this for several months, with no problems, and assumed the personal "beef" was resolved as they were still getting money and I wasn't posting my superior scripts on their forums making their own look inadequate. I was wrong.
Today, I logged on this morning as per usual to check the farms progress and pull newly created accounts for verification. Upon connecting to my dedicated server, I saw the CPU usage at 0% and immediately my heart sank because I hadn't checked in for 24 hours and during that time frame I knew it had submitted well over 10,000 requests to my captcha service as well as the Runescape account creation page. Assuming the worst, that Jagex had somehow figured out how to stop my farm, I started tearing through the logs, but it didn't take me long to see the problem.
Immediately upon reading this message, I knew that Alek, had elevated his personal problems to a whole new level. Only mere days after my last successful payment to OSBot, not only had my client and bot access been revoked for absolutely no reason, but all of my script access as well, which I had purchased many from independent scriptwriters for things such as collecting area and path data and various other miscellaneous configuration tasks and bots that I use to gather supplies for my larger botfarms.
There you have it. I was not only scammed out of hundreds of dollars of VIP fees, and multiple hundreds of dollars of independent scripts, but he purposely, manually, and individually targeted me to shut down my entire operation which cost me around $590 in lost profits as well as $~150 in captcha/server costs.
All of this comes during my last week of college, as I have a thesis and multiple final projects due this week, I can not take the time to reconfigure my farm to use TRIBot until next week. Luckily I do have a very large stock of accounts in reserve to keep my current clients satisfied without any interruption.
It is not the money that bothers me in this situation, as I can recoup these losses easily. But a small farmer that gets targeted in this way and requires profit for their life and well being may not be able to.
What really bothers me, is the principle, the ill intent of the situation. For no other reason than pure malice, a paying customer was intentionally sabotaged without even giving notice.
Do not give any of your money to OSBot. Alek and the staff are malicious, corrupt, scamming scum.
I will be reconfiguring my farm to use TRIBot in the coming weeks.
Support for the gradle launcher is being dropped. Read more about the new launcher here.
TRiBot 12 Release Candidate
The TRiBot team has been hard at work creating the last major version of TRiBot before the TRiBot X release. We've noticed many problems with TRiBot 11 with a lot of users preferring TRiBot 10 over 11. We've heard you, so we took TRiBot 10, added the new features introduced with 11, introduced some other new things, and created TRiBot 12. So without further adieu, here's TRiBot 12.
Gradle is a build tool used to accelerate developer productivity.
We recently setup a Maven repository (TRiBot Central) to make it easier for scripters to create scripts. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-central/-/packages
Furthermore, we've released a simple Gradle project to make it easy to run TRiBot and develop scripts for it. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-gradle-launcher
The goals of TRiBot Central are to:
Deliver updates to TRiBot faster
Better organize TRiBot's dependencies (AKA dependancies)
Make it easier to develop scripts for TRiBot
Make it easier to use and run TRiBot
Note: TRiBot won't be able to run scripts from within this project until TRiBot's next release.
I'd like to thank everyone for their patience in this transition period. Since last week, we've worked out the remaining bugs with this integration.
Some users have still been having issues with connecting their forums account to their Auth0 account. To resolve this, we've imported all forums accounts into Auth0.
Unfortunately, the accounts which were imported today were using an unsupported password hashing algorithm. Hence, random passwords were set during the import.
What does this mean for me?
If you've previously linked your forums account to your Auth0 account, you don't have to do anything. Nothing changes for you.
