    Question Does anyone know here about laws in scam?

    The account of my friend was scammed in Mobile Legends. We tracked his real name, and family and the family of the scammer blocked us. Can my friend sue the person who scammed him because it costs 200USD. Are there any law that can be use to him? He also make fake accounts. We dont know if we can sue him or not. We want to stop him because he scammed a lot of accounts and keep on scamming.

    I found this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyberc...on_Act_of_2012
    You can read through it and see if you can sue him for this. (Also I'm not sure if this was repealed.)
    If its possible (I don't play Mobile Legends) try to report him to the game's staff and possibly get him IP-Banned.

    Also,
    Growtopia forums, a place to discuss topics about a game designed for kids is probably not the best place for legal advice.

    so you want to sue someone (take note that lawyers cost insane amounts of money) because they scammed you $200? Even if you won, you would still lose thousands of dollars in lawyer fees. It's just not worth it.

    It really depends on how the account was scammed and what personal details the scammer now has access to. I would conjecture they do not have a case, but it potentially could be depending on the circumstances.
    Been playing Growtopia since 2010.

    Whatever timeline I am living in, I want out.
