SIGNATURE ICONS

Flags Netherlands South Africa United Kingdom Nigeria are for killing fake banks or sites used for fraud. You do this by writing an abuse report (sometimes more than 1) to the hoster. When the site goes 404, 403, or suspended, you get to put a flag in your sig for the country where the bank or company claimed to be located. Please see the fake sites forum for further explanation.

Mugu Reseller Shopping carts are for killing lad reseller accounts.

Cellphone Cell phones are for killing phone lad accounts by reporting them for fraud to their provider.

Safari Hats are for safaris. The rule for safaris is minimum 200 miles traveled distant from the lad's starting point (i.e. 400 miles round trip) OR an International border crossing. Getting a lad to travel this distance is the goal. In order to legitimately claim a pith helmet the journey would also have to be IP verified, OR verified by the lad's change of country code of his mobile phone number. Other solid evidence that the lad has traveled may also suffice, such as a selfie in front of a fixed landmark, hotel receipts or calls from fixed lines, or travel documents like visas, passport stamps, bus tickets or airline boarding card stubs. Geotags in digital photographs' EXIF data are also strong evidence for a lad having moved.

pyramid Pyramids are for killing HYIP (high yield investment poop) or ponzi schemes.

Vcamera Video camera icons are for getting a scammer to make a video for you.

Badges are the ultimate Eater trophy. This icon is to recognize someone for their part in bringing a scammer to justice for crimes related to 419 scams only. These crimes are difficult to prosecute so the icon is very specific. Badges are not awarded for unplanned or inadvertent detentions due to a lad's inability to pay a driver, lack of proper visa, or other incidental run-ins with law enforcement, though we all enjoy reading about those! : D Badges must be mod approved.

Jolly Roger These two are special awards given by the Eater staff. The criteria for getting one is a mod room secret, so don't ask Wink

This is for getting an unauthorised SSL key on a fake site removed.

Hello Kitty! This used to be awarded by former Mod, RooRoo. We occasionally hand it out to members who have done something worthwhile, but for whom no other icons really apply.

Santa This first appeared two Christmases ago, possibly at the request of a member named Keytool. It may have had something to do with getting lads to dress up as Santa.

Nurse Nastys Audi TT pony Pretty Rose Goat Pole Dancer Mc Fry Purple Flower Whip Jack Boot Flying Monkey These are the most special and you have to work hard to earn them.

The star does serve a purpose, however it can only be awarded by yours truly, and I never give an explanation for it Smile


Another Mod or Admin can explain this one. Don't start a new thread about it. If you are dying of curiosity PM Slightly or Lotta.

ETA - made a sticky.
ETA - added clarification on evidence - NG 8th july '16

Yipeee. Look! New little icons for us to put in our sigs.

We've customised some new icons, complete with explanations on how to attain them. If you have any questions or any ideas on other icons you'd like to have on the forums, please PM your nearest moderator.

Closed lad accounts This little piggy represents scammer bank accounts reported to a mod or your mentor. As the mods very rarely alert you to the progress of the reported bank, even getting a scammer to give you a working account and having it reported is good enough. You may add the number of total accounts reported. (ie. Closed lad accounts x6)

Code:
:$_lad:


Edited to update bank reporting procedures 08/2014 -bware419ers

And this one represents reported stolen Credit Card details. They can be reported to the Moderators by using the PM system and you may then add the piggy to your signature. Premium members can report the details: HERE

Code:
:$_crd:



Tattoo The Ying/Yang is for getting a lad tattooed. You may add the number of total lads you've had tattooed. (ie. Tattoo x6)

Code:
:tattoo:


Golden Pith Is awarded by the mod team for an extraordinary safari. What specifically is classed as a extraordinary safari? These won't be handed out willy-nilly. The Golden Pith is for those extra special Golden Safaris. (It means we'll probably put it to a poll of some sort)

Mortar The Mortar represents mentoring. You may add the number of total members you've given your wisdom, experience and support.

Code:
:mortar:


Sand Timer - The Sand timer is be used to identify your longest running baits, however you wish to present them. (eg: Lad Buggins - 17 mths) This is awarded for a bait lasting longer than 12 months of continuous baiting. Not just sending a email once a month to say 'hi' - We mean continuous baiting. You need to have a lad on the baited hook for over 12 months.

Code:
:sandtimer:


T.W.A.T - T.W.A.T. Icon for those who've had this specific monument built. We think this modality deserves its own icon. It's certainly an achievement.

Code:
:twat:

Another new icon: The Golden Piggie. Golden Pig Like the Golden Pith, this is a special award that can only be given by unanimous consensus of the mod team in recognition of significant effort in shutting down lad bank accounts. This is not easy to earn, but we encourage you to work at it. Wink

We know how much you like your icons and we've just come up with another one for you.

TV Star

This one is for anyone who manages to get their baiting activities on TV or in the media. Of course, a quick mention of Eater or Scamwarners in any article would be a help and would guarantee that you'll end up with it in your siggy!

If possible, we'd like you to place a link or a quick description of the media next to the icon so that people will know why you've received it. Your article is in the public domain - advertise it!

We're aware that many of you have managed to get the message out there in the past and we appreciate that, but to avoid confusion, it's only going to be handed out for media mentions from now onwards.

So get out there. Spread the message. Get famous. And get that icon. Very Happy
