    IP leaking.. Conspieracy?

    So I'm a new user on these forums, hoping to Make some Money. When suddenly I receive a Trade With Caution rank on my profile for not having a home IP.. So I do the logical thing and ask how to get it removed, through the staff that gave it to me to avoid unwanted suspicion from current/future clients. I was then kindly redirected to another thread about the rank and how to get it removed ect. (I haven't received any PMs from current or newer clients since it was issued.)

    No Home IP - Trade with caution (TWC)

    After Reading the thread, I thought to myself "this must be jokes. There's no way they are actually expecting people to leak IP addresses to the website just to avoid looking suspect."

    So I continued to scroll down when I noticed something.


    THIS IS WHERE IT GETS SCARRY..

    The first person on the top of the list (presumably a staff of some sort) was issued a Do Not Trade.

    Imgur

    So I looked into what this rank means and typed "Sythe DNT" into my search engine and guess what?..
    First thing I saw was a link that redirected me to a thread about a staff issuing an invalid DNT. Could it be a blackmail behind the sean? There's no way to truly know but what I want to point out here is that the staff also has a DNT Rank on his account.. For those of you that don't know, Do Not Trade ranks are given to people that have scammed in one way or another at some point.

    DNT - A World

    Why is this relevant you might ask? Well I continued to message the staff that issued me the Trade With Caution rank when he sent me a message claiming my IP wouldn't be seen by the public, only by staff..

    Imgur

    Now you might be able to see how this is all starting to fall together. Why would I trust my IP with staff when they are people too and are capable of scamming like anyone else. More importantly, Why would I be told to trust someone with my IP in the 1st place..


    IT GETS DEEPER


    So I get suspicious myself and look into this "staff" that's issuing me the Trade With Caution. He seems to be affiliated with the same staff I found on the thread he linked me to earlier that scammed someone.

    Imgur
    Imgur

    I'm not sure what this all means, if there is something bigger going on or no. The real Question here is, Why am I supposed to trust these "staffs" with my IP and Risk getting hacked or something. But cant be trusted for not sharing my Personal information on a gaming black market, when I haven't given anyone a reason to not trust me?

    I have personally lost THOUSANDS TO HACKERS and don't intend to put myself in a position where that's a possibility again.



    I just don't get this. So I'm going to leave it up to you guys, the thread users..
    Do you think its fair to force people into giving up vital information that puts you at risk of being hacked to avoid suspicion?
    You decide.​

    IP leaking.. Conspieracy?

    I don't think so at all, I have 2 clients that haven't responded to me since I got the rank and my trades don't even require trust because I use a middle man to hold funds until I complete the job... So why even raise suspicion like that? Also the whole staff scamming issue is the biggest deal breaker for me. If you have ever been a victim of a serious hack, you might understand the severity of this. (not implying that you don't get it) maybe you don't share my opinion because its never happened to you.

    To address your concerns:
    1) Panda's DNT/Staff scamming
    He's seem to gone MIA recently and wasn't really a scam quit however you're right staff can definitely scam. Though, I doubt any of them will want IPs if they do scam because an IP isn't enough to hack anyone.
    2) Using DNT for blackmail.
    DNT reasons/evidence is public nearly all the time (and when it's not public, it's for a good reason)
    3) Staff Leaking
    They'd be demoted instantly.
    4) King/Panda
    Don't see why this would raise your concern, it's to be expected that staff members interact with each other.

    No Home IP is commonly done by people trying to avoid a previous ban so that's why you're TWC. It's suspicious why you wouldn't reveal your IP and if you're that concerned unplug and replug the router if it's a dynamic IP. If it's static, call your ISP to request it to be changed.
    Only your ISP and a very rough estimate of your location would be revealed from your IP address.

    DDoSing is different than hacking, but as I said you can change your IP once you've posted from a home IP if a DDoS is a concern.(literally just need one home IP post)

    IP leaking.. Conspieracy?

    I was just informed by my service provider that only my network IP can be changed and my privates cant. He also said that my private IP can 100% be used to hack me, that's why its private.

    We have no plans to change our system, if you are worried about your information you can continue to use a VPN.
