Players lie. ALL the time. Logs should always be checked to be 100% certain of any claims made.
Most scam cases in particular I've seen/handled have relied on staff taking their word for it. There's actually a term for this; social engineering - and don't be fooled, a great deal more than I'd like of the PSKO community love to do it.
No, I'm not saying all players are liars. However, if they think they can get away with it though, most would (and do) take advantage of trusting staff.
One of my favourites is players coming to you and being all, "OMG MY <insert item here> BURNED GOING TO +<1/2/3 [rare/impossible rate>, UPGRADES ARE BROKEN RESTORE MY ITEM PLS". Logs (that players are seemingly unaware of -- but to be fair, most servers don't employ them), on the other hand, state they were actually upgrading to something possible/highly likely to burn (hey, let's say +8).
That's really not even the worst part of it -- the worst part is, they're typically (though not always -- occasionally they'll back off as soon as they realise you actually DO have logs), extremely persistent and try to make their issue very public, trying to garner community attention to ensure that staff handle it in their favour.
I don't know where you've been all this time, but players lie. Frequently.
Logs are vital. NEVER, EVER assume people are telling the truth - as soon as they realise they can get away with it, you're pretty much ensuring your server's imminent destruction; "but GM, you did it for x and y and z, WHY NOT ME", "GMS UNFAIR, THEY GOT [FREE ITEMS/or whatever]!!!".
Especially in scam cases (which are usually best to steer clear of unless you were strictly responsible; I've seen some pretty well thought out scam cases, both legit and otherwise).
So, very good call by staff here. Please don't take this guy's advice. Seriously.

Welcome KO PLAYERS,
My name is Nini and im new Gm of KO PLUS Serv, i wanna to again advertise this server, I know that ur opinion about it is not good because of Kronos and other things, but im here for help this server and i wanna give u a change to spent nice time on exp and pk.
Today all day Me And Dan (admin) are working on new patch. So u will be able to buy scrools in sundries (1000/150/swift), also u can get better scrools from hard boss (1500/300/wolf scrools) and 2500/350 scrools from PUS.

See u there!
To be honest this server is pretty good.. no lags around.. logical drop rate and almost classic "evil" Anvil. Only issue is people don't "trust" this server and are not joining it..
If the server was good, it would have had more players - END OF IT.
Don't say it is good, while it's not. I don't even need to give it a try to see what's going on. It is farming. Check section of private servers and i guarantee you that 90% of them will be MYKO styled servers with similar exp rate, farm rate and so on. So once again, the server isn't good. It is one out of many and will stay like this for couple of days more till we will see notice ''We are sorry, blah blah, server is closed due to low popularity''.
we are not there for fuck players and close server after 1-2 week, we want to have server with big population who can spent fun time there, we dont need players who think: its next server whith wanna get some money and close it,
We dont wanna ur money, u can play without donate. We wanna be a great server with great ppl's
WHAT POSSIBLY changed to make it go back to 100 user ? new random gms and events ? i doubt
GL and even if you re-re-re-re launch server it wont make it better each time just makes server look retarded.
