Important Information

Safety First

IMPORTANT!

  • NEVER give away your password. The consequences can be severe and our Terms of Service explicitly prohibit sharing passwords with others.


  • Choose a password that's hard to guess, and change it on a regular basis. (See the YOUR ACCOUNT section of this FAQ.)


  • Add extra security to your account by applying the 4 digit pin to your account. (See the YOUR ACCOUNT section of this FAQ.)


  • DO NOT use the same password for your Street Crime account as the one used for your e-mail address. Also remember that friends, relatives or colleagues may use your computer and get access to your account if you don't log out.


  • Try NOT to use Hotmail. Most people who are hacked and ask our Admins/Moderators for help use Hotmail, which is very insecure. We recommend you use other, more secure, e-mail services.


  • NEVER download and/or execute programs offered by other players. They may contain viruses or Trojans that can be used to break into your computer.


  • MAKE SURE your computer is always well-protected with firewalls and virus scanners.
    We recommend that you use Mozilla Firefox as your default browser. Microsoft Internet Explorer has multiple bugs that can be exploited by hackers to access your Street Crime account without needing your passwords.


  • Mozilla has a 'remember this password' option. Although time saving, be aware that this also means that any other users of your computer can go to the Street Crime site and can access your account easily if you saved both your email and password.


  • A final recommendation is for you to set your screen resolution to 1280-1024 when playing the game.


  • Don't say we didn't warn you!! While most players in Street Crime can be trusted, some unfortunately cannot. Be smart and don't let malicious users ruin everything for you.


  • If you get hacked and/or mysteriously lose money, the admins mayt be able to track down where the money went. However, the admins NEVER refund 'hacked' money. In 90% of the hacking cases the victim shared his password with a 'friend' on MSN or didn't take any accurate measures to keep his account secured. You are ALWAYS responsible for the consequences of your own actions.

What is Street Crime?

Street Crime is an addictive Mafia/Street role play game, where players picture themselves as a notorious criminal with the aim to achieve the well respected rank of Godfather.

This is now version 3 of Street Crime, with each version getting progressively better. The game was first created towards the end of 2007. The games aim was to focus on certain areas where other mafia games failed and to use the players ideas and opinions to make the game what it is.

From these thoughts and ideas we came up with version 3 of Street Crime which was released at the end of September 2009. Street Crime version 3 is the most unique gangster game on the internet.
