    Talking Copy Cat Scammer

    Now we got people copying what they see on the scammer posts.
    I cropped most of it because it was a long conversation.
    At the end he says I don't want my name ruined lol

    Great, since it was mentioned in the other thread that the devs stay out of this, now people thinks that makes it okay :/
    People have been saying posting warnings is the best prevention, but really they just inform people that wouldn't haven fallen for it anyway, and give potential scammers a new idea. Looks like it might be doing more harm than good.

    I don't know what I find more disappointing: him or the beggars that you also caught in the screenshots.

    You got a good point but if we ignore people who do it they just continue too. But on the other end of it if we get the word out about less people will fall for it. So it's basically we damed if we do and damed if we don't.

    Ya I told that guy go to the forums and learn how to do it for free. It's amazing how many people don't use the forums there is so much info here. When I first started playing this game I spent more time reading and learning stuff on the forums than I actually spent playing the game.

    Did you see what armargeddon said in the screenshots about this rare purple axe that doesn't drop anymore? First he was begging for money to buy OL rift and now he's attempting to scam? I could be reading into something that not really there and/or there really is a purple axe that doesn't drop anymore.

    Funny. The guy in the OP is doing it again right now but this time with a Sniper's Crossbone Bow in the CS for 110k in exchange for hate armor and helm.

    Ya I'm sure he didn't want me to post about it just so he could keep doing without people catching on about him.

    This guy was at it again tonight. Trying to trade a Hate helm and "chest" (whatever that means) for a Sniper's Crossbone Bow that Haanajeowasy is listed as selling. No screenshots as I'm on an un-rooted Droid phone, but the deal seemed so off I noted it... and sure enough, it's the same guy from this thread. Now I wish I'd called him on it. Looks like no one took him up on the "deal" though.

    There are about 100 ways these scammers are stupid... I'd detail them, but I wouldn't want to give the copy-cats ideas on how to improve their scams. As it is, most people don't seem to be falling for it, and it's sorta funny to point and laugh at how obvious the scams are.

    Edit: whoops, Ayrilana beat me to it, heh.

    I was thinking of a way around this. I thought of one, it sounds extreme and a bit unreasonable but it should work.

    Make trade advertising in normal chat bannable. It makes the CS entirely correct.

    It removes the ability to T> items to items, but you should still be able to with friends, assuming they're real friends and don't report you. Yeah, the only MMO that bans with trade advertising. Lol

    Ya sorry I don't like that idea because I trade item for item a lot using the town chat. You can't do that in the cs so you have to use chat for that.

    Yeah, like i said it removes trading entirely.

    It has its pro's and cons. Pro's is that it removes this type of scamming in a way. Cons is it removes trading between random people.
