Racing Scams: This is a relativily new class of scamming. These are
things people can do to you in a race or about a race.
||95 % of
the time racing for slips is a scam. Espically if they say they will
foul to give you the car. If you are going to race for slips to do
an exchange, atleast do it in brackets, so that if the person is
going to try and scam you, you still have a fighting chance.
Otherwise be prepared to lose your car! (suggested by
get a race that you think what is wrong with this person(a stock Civic H2H
against an SVT). It is probably because they are "tank" racing.
This is where a person will have a car fully ripped, uninstall
everthing, run the dyno, then log out and back in. This will cause
the HP for a car to be miss-reported. Then they go "blind race" some
people and see who bites. Then right before they race they
re-install all the upgrades. They do this because they think you
will run an easy race, because their car sucked. Espically beware
of these if the race IS A TOTAL miss-match, or if it is for a high $$
amount on a race you were not expecting to

PASSWORD SCAMS: Password scams come in WIDE rage of shapes and
color's, but the one central fact ALWAYS centers on you giving your password to
no working money cheat for Nitto 1320v109s. There used to be one for
older versions of the game. There never was a clone cheat. You
are ususualy directed to a web site for these 2 or they just plain ask you
for your password, so they can put the stuff into your
when I type my password in Nitto chat it comes out like this *****
an obivious scam. If you type your password in main window chat or
in pm it will come through as normal text
that says it can give you money or cars. You just have to put in your
account info and they will deposit it into your account
again, obvious scam. There is NO cheat that requires your account
info, they are all done through ArtMoney, which only YOU can
has a program the requires you to download it so it can ethier cheat,
trainer, or hack the Nitto server
these are scams. These are always ethier viruses, keyloggers or the
program will simply email your account info to the person who created it
when you put it into the application
in chat tells you they have a program that will give you stuff. All
you have to do is give them your password so they can put the stuff in
again, obvious scam. Very similliar to #2
|** DOUBLE LOGON SCAM **
!! This one is new !!
This is usually done with the guise of one of the above listed scams
purpose of this scam is to convince you that, as long as you are logged on
you are safe. They will tell you that "if you think it is a scam
change your password before you log off". They then perform the
double logon hack and get into your account while you are still logged in,
giving them the opportunity got get your stuff!
have "whatever" cheat, then in pm they say things like, give me
your password or go to a web site
is rather self explanitory, See #2, #3 and #4. If there is any such
cheat that is good for users and out to scam them, you will find it on
your password to spaces (sometimes set number, some times any number you
||Falling for this scam will cause your password to be blank. That is how the scammers can log into your account.
It does not matter how many spaces you chage it to, your password will be bank. To log back into you
account (assuming the scammer is not in it) is to put your user name in and leave the password box empty at the Nitto login screen.
Then as soon as you log in, CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD AGAIN!!
(Correction submitted by 4me2sho4u2c)
your password to whatever and logout for 2 minutes
a variation on the other ones above. It is usually done with the guise of
giving you something for free. (Submitted by VolksW98)
|Nitto 1.09 beta download scam
||This one we just saw recently. This is a new skin on
an old scam. This is usually done through email, web page or IM outside of
Nitto. These are usually keyloggers.
|OUTWAR / OUTPIMP
often point you to this web site for their hacks / cheats or
downloads. This site is nothing more then a spyware installer.
When you first hit the site it will ask you to do a download. CLICK
NO!! Or better yet avoid this site like the plague. Always look at
the status bar in the bottom left hand corner of Internet Explorer to see
where a link is taking you. If the site is hiding the destination by
overwiting the status bar, DON'T CLICK the LINK!!!
have gotten ALOT of attention lately!! A keylogger is a program that
can log every keystroke on your computer. These are programs that
must be downloaded and installed, or you must allow an Active-X control to
do the work. We have yet to see a keylogger that can be based off a
web page without a download of some type! These are usually
delivered by websites as download, through Email or recently,
delivered through non-Nitto IM services. Be VERY wary of any
downloads you do with the promise of FREE or SPECIAL stuff!
Admin's asking for password
you do not see much because the REAL mod's and admin's usually shut
down the accounts rather fast. However, from time to time they will
slip through. Mod's or Admin's WILL NEVER ASK FOR YOUR
PASSWORD! They have access to the server database and can make
corrections from there if they see fit to. NEVER give out your
password to someone who CLAIMS they are a admin or

FREE or BUYING STUFF: The biggest problem in this catagory is there is NO SAFE way to transact items in Nitto
or Trading ANYTHING
||This item is more of a disclaimer then a
scam. Like we said in the header for this section, there IS NO safe
trasaction system. The only way to transact items is through teams
or pink slips. If you put money into a team account there is no
gurantee they will complete the transaction and actually give you the
item. Similliary pink slips where they say they will foul or such,
they do not have too! They can just run right past you. If you
are going to do pinks for a transaction, atleast do it in brackets not
head to head. That way if the person IS going to scam you, you still
have a fighting chance as long as you hit your bracket!
are scams because the person that owns the email account that the Nitto
account was first registered too, can get the PASSWORD ANYTIME! It
does not matter if you change the password! If you recieve a free
account that has ANYTHING in it, transfer it to an account that you
setup immediately and DO NOT USE the free account you got, for
they WILL come back in and take the stuff.
||This is a scam for the same reason as #2.
These also have been use to guise password scams. IF the person
ACTUALLY goes through with the transaction, do the same thing as #2,
transfer the stuff out to an account YOU created!
again, this is in the same line as #2 & #3. If you get the
stuff, transfer it to another account imedately!
often ethier a password scam or simply falls into the warning in #1.
For those that do get a free car it usually someone fencing stolen
items. Just like a pawn shop in the real world they are simply
changing stolen stuff into Nitto money. There are some times where
this is legit, but VERY few!
is one is specificaly about premium car's (F1's and
Funny's). These cars are tracked by the system. The system
knows if you bought one from Nitto or not and each one is tagged.
The mod's and admin's have been known to TAKE these cars away if you
did not purchase them. So even IF you get one by purchase,
pinks or free, you might just lose it. YOU HAVE BEEN
line with #1. IF you actually get the car most of the time it was
stolen. See also #6
for the car now, half after delivery
usually done on high priced cars. Usually selling for close to
market value. They will say to deposit the money into a team
account or race and foul to give it to them. Then once you give
them the deposit they will dissapear! This is just like a bunch of
the above listed scams!

TEAM SCAMS: Teams are not always
scams! They can actually be very bennifical to you and a fun aspect of the game.
However there are some team scams that you need to be aware of! Team leaders
control ALL the team money. Trust them before you do ANYTHING with a team.
is for free. Teams do not normally just give out money for
joining. If they do it is cause they got money is stolen and they
are liable to steal it from you next!
just a plain on scam. You put money in the team account, then the
leader boots you off the team
a team for awhile and trust the team leader befoore you deposit any money
into the team account. The team leader controls all the money, so
you better trust the person!
that claim to pay a weekly amount of money are usually full of
bullshit. It is usually just a ploy to get you to join the team and
deposit money. This one also fall in line with
