    So either I was smart or...

    So I put up a honey potion on the trading post and someone messages me, asking me to put up another trade so they can give me a gift. Keep in mind that I was using a side account.

    So I put up a trade full of crappy items and they bid on my honey potion and the other trade. For the honey potion they gave me 690k and a pb. For the crappy items, they started giving me Ramtor's Spellbook, a Snowbunny, etc.

    I accepted the trade for the 690k and the pb, but the other trade seemed REALLY suspicious. Why were they giving me so much for no reason at all?

    I just wanted to know what you guys think--if I was wise or if I just made a huge mistake lol.

    EDIT. I messaged them politely, telling them that they were being too kind and I just didn't think it was fair. They're still insisting on gifting it to me...should I be skeptical?

    Is their account a shell? If so, you probably have every right to be skeptical. If not, maybe they're just being nice. There's also a possibility that they might've thought that you were a newbie at Neopets and needed a little boost or something. xD

    I don't know. They have pretty nice pets and it's pretty old. The thing is that my shell is pretty old too! I dunno, the whole sitch sounds pretty weird. I'll keep on talking to them, but I don't think I'll accept it.

    Besides, Ramtor's Spellbook isn't that fancy :p

    EDIT. Now they're offering me a Honey Potion (the one I sold to them...), a Snowbunny, and Ramtor's Spellbook. I'm really starting to get skeptical. Unless they're truly just trying to get rid of everything...but it seems so implausible and illogical.

    Well, if it was ridiculously high end items, then I would see why you would have a reason to be worried about. I'm pretty sure it's just someone being nice like everyone else has said haha.
