    Question

    I am selling an item worth 7m. The person I am selling to says they want to do split trades. I would rather do an auction.
    Which do you think would be the better thing to do?

    That is what I think as well. The person nmd me and said "okay, we could do split trades if you want, i think we both know how hard it is to get UCs and wouldn't risk them over 6 mil"
    That freaked me out. Like they were threatening me or something.

    No, tell them you'd prefer to do auction, if they refuse, something is up. Better safe than sorry, I'd back out of the trade if they refuse to do auction .

    Well, I sent them a nm saying I prefer auction. They said it was fine. So, I dont know what was up.

    Maybe they were honestly just saying "I have UCs, and I wouldnt risk my account for 6 mil, so can we avoid the 2 hour process of auctions and just do some split trades?"

    Ive done/said that before. I definitely wouldn't risk my UCs for an amount of NP I can auto buy in a few days.

    Some people prefer split trades if they don't want to wait an hour for the auction to end. Example: if they need an item for Illusen's higher quests that ask for r99s.

    In general I think they're shady though

    Ok, I may have taken it the wrong way. It was just everything being said that made me suspicious

    Yeah, I try not to do split trades. Especially with higher end items.

    This might be a tad off topic but if they wanted to do split trades wouldn't it make sense to accept the offer on the extra trade(s) first and then the one with the item on it?

    Hopefully it all works out though! That is a little suspicious how they seemed to threaten you D:

    Yeah it would make sense to do it that way. I just prefer to do things with as few of steps as possible. lol
