View Full Version : Almost got me

So I was selling my blue dragon armor in br for 1.7m when this Guy (Removed name)offered me 1.7m and some crap pinks. Whenever we entered the trade window he put up 1.7m and some crap pinks as expected. However, he said let me give you a better pink so I was like alright this is pretty cool. But what I didn't notice is he took a 0 away from the 1.7m so I accepted the first part of the trade and in the second window I noticed the 0 missing. Upon finding out what he did I told him I noticed the 0 missing and after I did he backed out and signed off lol.
I just wanted to share this with everyone because I thought it was a pretty clever scam that people should be aware of.

Mage till the end
