Discord scams: Beware of the Nitro imposter scam
Rainonsol’s guide to avoiding Discord Scams
This means the user is a discord nitro paid user, giving them the ability to change their discord handle (name 0xCelon and hashtag #0001) to ANYTHING. ~ What does this mean? They have the ability to copy the EXACT handle to the T of any discord user. Meaning anyone can recreate with the feature of discord nitro, the exact discord handle “0xCelon#0001” So how do we verify it’s the real 0xCelon? Head over to: Discord settings in the bottom left
Now when somebody dms you and claims to be the REAL 0xCelon, you can now check for their ID by right clicking there PFP IMAGE not the the message, you MUST left-click the IMAGE itself and click copy id and paste it. Then go to your DMs and grab the ID directly from your dms of the individual claiming to be 0xCelon. If the ID’s match his ID it is the same person. ID’s on discord CANNOT be changed they will remain the same for the user for the rest of his life. It’s really important to note that the ID must be copied either from the PFP IMAGE in a chat or the profile on the right hand sidebar (this is preferred as you can’t mess this up) Here’s how to grab the ID via right hand side bar (BEST OPTION)
Here’s how to grab ID via chat, IMPORTANT: Make sure to left-click the IMAGE and grab the ID. NOT the written message, because every message has it’s own ID which will not match check below, the first ID grabbed is the correct method. The second ID was wrong, it was of the message.
