    The Busted Buyer’s Guide: How to Avoid Trouble and Get Out of it (Tickets, TNT and Damage Control)

    Note: The following guide mostly caters to inexperienced or first-time buyers looking to stay safe that want to use proactive methods if within their transaction case rights. Proactive methods to get one's account back are often risky, dirty, seemingly too-bold and not for everyone. This is simply what's worked for me personally: it may not work for everyone or be agreeably on the same page with what this forum believes. If the following message inconveniences or offends you, I apologize. Thank you.


    [SIZE=2] Like many illegitimate buyers are afraid to admit, particularly as first-timers, you may secretly suffer from an extreme case of ‘give-a-damn’. Nobody wants to get themselves or others frozen.

    You’re smart enough to avoid scammers and ill transactions on the forums—-the real problem at hand is fearing that your account will be frozen or coping with the fact that your account has been frozen! Regaining your rights to play safely and freely on Neopets can be a difficult journey with dicey success rates.

    If you have been frozen or you believe you’re at-risk due to buying something over the forums, I have (in my clumsy experiences) discovered a few methods to help YOU in both prevention and recovery. Want your good ol’ main back? Made a bad move and want to wriggle out of getting hit by TNT? Just want to be careful? Read on!

    First Thing’s First:



    Writing a Ticket if You’ve Been Frozen for Buying/Selling




    General Ticket-Writing Guidelines



    I’ve been called out on an item/Neopet/account by another user! What now?





    I haven’t been frozen, but I’m scared to buy! Give me tips!




    And Finally…Introducing the Bunny System!



    Final Notes:

    Just thought I'd mention, a good way to fake details in screenshots (like times/dates on private messages) is by using this javascript hack...

    1. Paste this into your URL bar:
    2. Hit Enter - everything is now editable!
    3. Click somewhere and edit the text.
    4. Paste this into your URL bar to make in uneditable again and authentic looking:
    5. Hit the Print Screen button and you're done.

    Unfortunately this won't work in some browsers or versions or browsers that automatically google anything you put into the URL bar that isn't a web address. :/

    I love how you described the bunny system xD

    I use similar approach when I buy pets that come with the shell they're on. Never got into trouble... yet.
