Pet scammers

Post by terminator » Sun Nov 04, 2018 11:04 pm

I have seen many type of these people, im sure many know what im talking about. What they do is put lets say a pet on your trade screen, you set the amount lets say 2b, then when they see that they wait one second for human reaction to hit check mark, they remove prt screen, and hit check to, they made out with 2b and there was nothing you could do. This happend to me today, nov 4.

Scammer name: radamantys(Think so he log after he scammed)
Victim acct: terminator
time 18:18 FT time
:Descrip one said above, loss of 2b due to trade glitch when you cannot undo your check once you set gold amount and you lose your gold
Suggestion for solveing: 2b gold give back, Multi day ban on all offender accts

@ terminator

Well, in all honesty it's not just pets! But yea, it's a problem, scammers abound!.

Here's an idea I just had --> New Trade Box Idea

Players have tried to scam me quite a few times today. I hate selling things now! I put item, they put gold amount and i check fast (they set gold to 0 or some really low price). I've gotten lucky but many haven't:(
Does it ever really get better?

@ NightBaby
Now I only buy from people I know. And that list is thinning.

We really need a shop that one can put items up for sale with a price attached.
If another player buys the item, the seller gets the posted price less 10%

If the item is not sold after a week, price reduces 10%.

If item is not sold after two weeks, item is returned to owner.

I think something like that or a variation thereof would be great. This would also allow you to sell to those not on the forum or at spawn.

Perhaps some sort of limit per character so players don't sell 500 fish at a time or something.

Yes! Something similar to this would be amazing😄
I just want to say that if scammers would stop scamming, we wouldn't have to think about trading the way we do!(hint hint to all the scammers!)

A problem with that:

I want to SELL "itemX" to "playerY" or
I want to GIVE playerY: X amount of gold
I want to GIVE playerX: Y item

I still think New Trade Box Idea is doable.
