    How to avoid most scams

    Ok folks, here's the definitive guide to avoiding most ingame scams. I'll break it down into two easy-to-understand parts.

    Part 1:
    All trades are FINAL

    Assume you will NOT get an item back when you trade it. So always either get collateral or agree on a price (which is essentially the same thing).


    Part 2:


    If you can follow these two steps, you will avoid practically every trading scam possible.

    You could had just said "use common sense" or something along those lines, that usually works pretty well in real life too.

    Common sense died and never showed up at the revive terminal.

    That is way too many steps to follow to make a trade secure


    I rather just spam accept button before reading what I am receiving...







    Can't believe people fail at this part....... Makes me giggle to see people "OMG HE SCAMMED ME" when they have to click accept TWICE




    There will always be someone



    thanks for making this post tho, it seems to be mostly needed these days...... Yep, I am being honest, but with a saaaaaaaaaad tone...
    If the stuff that comes out of my mouth upsets you, just think of all the things I keep to myself.

    If only life were so black and white. I dont think the poor souls who have, and will, get caught by these crimes are the ones who will benefit from such wisdom though.

    However, I am quite sure the morally void who purpetrate, and their friends who so gamely intimidate the victims afterwards, will take great enjoyment from your gem of a post.

    In fact, why dont we all just rush ahead and take the extreme piss out of anyone stupid enough to have had a crime committed against them. After all, they deserve it yes?
