    Default Ex-scammers, what made you stop scamming?

    Just thought it’d be fun to ask.

    I used to scam other people if I could (mostly by earning their trust and then gaining access to their world) but that was 4 years ago and I’ve been scam-free for years now.

    I stopped because I kept getting scammed as well (karma lol) and one of my friends got mad when he knew what I was doing. I treasured our friendship so I stopped completely.

    What’s your story?

    I'm not a scammer myself, but I would imagine them replying with something like:

    "It was not profitable, and it made me feel really bad, and I grew up to know better"

    When children develop morals, and respect for others, they realize it's wrong.

    Never did scamming but I used to hack a lot
    Hacking growtopia last time was really easy and simple and it was pretty fun too
    I spent a lot of time trying out hacking abilities
    Then I got banned twice so I just gave up
    I didn't want to get banned another time and I realised how unfair hacking was to other players
    When I got unbanned I just changed my name to HaxFrNubz and never went back since
    Tho I do sometimes use my knowledge to prevent other hackers from hacking

    Bcuz of my greed i lost 16dls in 30 minutes (wow!)
    Then i decided to stop playing casinos.

    Me personally, I have never scammed in Growtopia but I used to in other video games when I was younger. It just kinda hit me one day that stealing is morally wrong, and I wouldn't want people to do it to me. I think growing up and being an adult is also a key factor.

    I never scammed because it's some pest act that ruins someone and does not benefit myself
