I Got Scammed with SpinPUBG.com / PUBGTen.com from a Random Chat on Steam
This is a review for a site PUBGTen.com or formerly named SpinPUBG.com. Just today, I accepted all of the pending friend requests on my steam account and surprisingly I accepted a fraud person. His Steam name is FarmaDjo, and he introduced himself as a Public Manager and want to advertise their SPINPUBG.com site to my steam profile. I was thinking how did this guy added me and found my account. I ask him a link to their website so that I can take a look. He gave the site https://spinpubg.com. At first, I do a background check to see if it’s not a fraud site and unfortunately, no results have found on google, even a bad reviews.
** UPDATE 03/24/2018 ** – The site SpinPUBG.com is no longer to be found, they renamed their site to PUBGTen.com.
He then offered me that he makes me a winner for their site once a week worth $200 of PUBG items, as exchange for putting a link of their site to my profile. He then wants me to show how it works. He asked me to visit the site, and he wanted me to pick a winner from the list of bettors. So, I choose a random guy from the list and sent him the name. After the round, he makes the guy I pick as a winner. So this is his way to prove you that he can manipulate the winner of the betting.
Out of curiosity, I gave the site a try and actually baited with his scam. The minimum bet is $10 and “Their bot” only accepts items below $10. I sent a couple of times to check if it’s above $10 and their bot deny the offer (Making themselves believable). From that point of view, I thought it is legit since they didn’t get my items that are below $10. So, I added $10 worth of items to their site.
I said to him that I already added worth of $10 and that time the bot accepted the offer and I was now on the betting list. That round is worth $300 of PUBG items, and honestly, I was thrilled and surprised. To cut it short, he makes me the winner of that round. I asked him how can I get my item?
He told me that we have a problem and I need to win twice in order to get my item. Then, he replied but do not worry I will make you a winner again now. So, I have to bet another $10 worth of PUBG item to get it. This time, I was thinking this is a scam – but knowing Steam support doing an excellent job of helping people who got scammed. So I tried another bet. I sent him the offer. This time, his alibi is that my winning chance is less than 5% and I have to put more item on it.
He actually pause the betting for me to sent another $10 worth of items. This guy will not stop until you have empty item on your account. So I refused, this leaves me with two choices: One, I have to bet to get the item and not clear if he still insists on adding more items for me to win. Or, the other way abandon the bet and entirely lost my initial bet. In the end, I lost the round, and I asked him to return all of my item or just the things that I won. This time, he sent me a bunch of terms and condition and FAQs rules saying you need to win twice in order to get the item. That is his trick of not allowing you to get your item and fall for his scam.
He then insisted me to bet again, and he makes me a winner even I have a low winning chance. This time, I prepared my video recorder to record the conversation and to get a proof of his scam. So I bet my last $10 worth of item in PUBG. Guess what? His alibi is I didn’t notify him for the last seconds, and he is unable to make me a winner. I asked him to return all the items, or I report him, but he refuse and telling me he doesn’t have access to the bot and he is not the owner of the site.
Since I only have less than $10 worth of item left on my account. He told me to refresh the site and it becomes inaccessible with a pop word saying “GamingPH.Erwin. Congratulations you’ve won! Our site has a rule that newcomers must win twice to get their winnings. You can read the rules in F.A.Q. Thank you and good luck.”
Basically, this website is not a gamble/roulette site. It is made to scam people like me and probably you as you read this blog. I’ve also check google for similar copy of the site and found out there are lots of them. So you should also watch out of the following site with the same scheme:
Hope this review will make you not fall from this kind of scam. I’ve already written a report to steam and hoping to get my item back. You can check our complete conversation with the scammer below.
