Hi there, it's been a very long time since this has happened and my memory is a little sketchy, but I'd like to thank the people in the clan for helping me out and especially the person who recruited me into it, Abhinayan, who's been a good help and friend since.Nature Sun95 wrote:I'll tell you the story in detail, if I may.
It so happens that Rob Crawl has been scamming our newly recruited members, for quite sometime. It so happens that he tells them to invest in some scheme of his, for which he says that if he earns a profit from the scheme, he'll give all the money to the person; if he loses in the scheme, the person will lose all his money.
Some of these 'schemes' include staking at duel arena, gambling etc. The most recent one if that of asking the victim to trade in some quantity of items, which the person is not able to sell on the Grand Exchange for a reasonable price due to market fluctuations
He claims that if the person gives him the items, he'll sell them in a short time, specifically 10 minutes or so.
The first target of his in our clan was Koolboyv1, whose story I think I have already posted somewhere. But just to summarise it, Koolboyv1 gave Rob Crawl some money for his 'investment scheme', and after sometime said he had lost the money and it won't be returned.
Now talking about the most recent victim of his, Crovex. Rob Crawl lured lured Crovex into giving him 19500 swordfish, which he said he would sell for him. As guarantee, he presented before him a friend of his, whose username is supposedly something like "trap king". As expected, Crovex fell for the scheme, and lost the swordfish. This was followed by Rob Crawl denying to have even seen Crovex in his life. This lead to Crovex raging because he trusted a clan member. Then what happened is, Abhinayan who I believe was the Clan Recruiter in charge of him, feared that he would leave the clan. So evidently, Abhinayan attempted to help him.
When I logged in, and people told me about the event, I had a strong suspicion of Rob Crawl doing it. But the problem was I had never seen him doing it in person. So Abhinayan and I conducted a small experiment..and I saw him actually trying to scam someone.
When he was asked why he was scamming anyone, he retorted by asking, "Are you a Jagex moderator?"
This is not specifically a clan issue, but we should look into this matter since his victims are mostly our new clan members, who might rage-quit thinking Rob Crawl to be a representative of the Clan. (I had to console koolboy, and crovex was consoled by all the members of the clan, including abhinayan)
