Yes I know I should of known not to click a referral for the promise of credits but hey, we all want them and need them, however the guy decided to block me. I made a ticket hoping to clear the referral connection to stop him from getting free cartel coins. I don't know if they will but, I hope to at least make people aware of it.

Yeah, we know. It's a long-running phenomenon. If the right CS person picks up the ticket, they will indeed clear the referral, or so I've heard.

Call me ignorant, but how do they scam ya with their referral link? I got mine from the forum here that BW connected to my account, so how would you get scammed if the link was given by BW?

Its 4:13 am and i am tired and all this might not be registering on me but at this time i am confused. lol

Help me understand this at this early hour of the morn. TY.
Referral link, Use it, don't use it. It's what ever. But if you do, Thank You.

They speak up on in-game chat, offering substantial sums of credits (usually several million) for people to click their link, and they don't pay. The link is genuine, but the offer of credits is not.

OHH, ok i think i seen those in gen chat. Thought to my self when i saw them doing that. Some poor person will fall for that. I learned a LONG TIME AGO. If it sounds to good to be true. It usually is. Live and Learn, just dont do it again.

Thx and Be well..........

lol I thought about offering credits for use of my link but I found that people are expecting like 5-7 mil for using the code these days. And I'm just not willing to pay that much hahahah.....That being said I did not know there are scammers for that. But then again I used someones link without expecting credits.

I just report em for spam and put them on ignore. I used to go after them in chat but decided why waste the energy on something Bioware thus far has shown little interest in doing anything about.

I also saw that kind of scam on the french server and it's always the same a few credits promised for the link. And then people are getting scammed. When a new player join our guild we try to prevent them to be victims of those with some advices but sometimes the catch of the amount of credits is too strong for some of them.

(Sorry for my poor english ^^')

May the force be with you
