Seems like a few reports of this loser.

I still think scammers should be given a brown name colour (both in game, PM, /msg, Forum posts, and public and green chat)

Would make it much easier for players to identify a dodgy guy, would like to see this implemented :) Perhaps it would be wise for a little notice to pop up when you attempt to make a trade with a brown named player, explaining that they are a known scammer.

I agree with these ideas and suggest other safeguards against scamming:

You can only trade if at least at level x.

You can only trade with people on your friend list.

There is not even an option to initiate trade unless someone is on your friend list.

If a player presses x to decline a trade and/or removes an item this is automatically sent as a red flag to game logs and so is easier to spot in the event of a scamming report.

Lets make life as difficult as possible for the worst of ft.

I would like to add on my own that when you reject a trade, the second player can still endlessly lay out items for sale and the only thing that can save from this now is a re-entry into the game. This should also be fixed.

The bigger question on the brown name idea is if they are identified as a scammer why allow them to trade at all by continued play? We mute language offenders why not scammers blocked too. Then they can only trade with those on their own friend list or if in a clan own clan buddies.

I believe that is resolved in the current version, or perhaps just the beta?
