UPVOTE SO BUNGIE DEALS WITH IT
The title says it all but I will go into detail, I haven’t used the forums in a week or two so I wouldn’t be expecting any messages but a message pops up, on the destiny app, from a person named Audra.
The text said the following:
I immediately thought this was a bot so I decided to toy with it a bit and replied with “Yes?”
Now I didn’t get a response for a hot minute so I thought the bot was stupid or something so responded with a Hi and immediately got a response. It was quite a mouthful so I’m just gonna summarise it.
“Hi, this is gonna sound weird but I’m using my sisters account, my name is Cassy, how old are you?”
I thought this message was a bit weird so I checked the profile of this person but oddly enough, it lead to a blank blue page of nothingness. So this is when I thought this could be a potential predator as well even though it sounds a bit bizarre.
I still decided to play along and responded with 16.
No answer. I tried to get something but I was just ignored. So there’s two possibilities: Either A: This is some sort of bot that wants something or B: A child predator.
Now please don’t go sending hate to this account even though you can’t really, there are two possibilities and it’s a 50/50.
This could be a mentally challenged person for all we know who could be trying to make a friend. Don’t be too quick to judge, innocent until proven guilty.
Now the reason why I think this is a problem because I told my clan discord about this and one of them said that the same happened to them so I think this bot/predator is messaging everyone it can to achieve its goal of whatever.
So, if Audra messages you, spread the word and think twice. Whatever it is it’s probably breaking some rules.
EDIT: Credit to RustlerOfJimmies, could be a cam girl bot trying to promote a website, deal with it Bungie.
