So recently, I was selling a Rainbow Scorchstone. For SOME REASON, I decided to run off to a couple other forums, and post that I was selling it, along this forum too. Someone said they would buy it, and were offering almost full price. He ran off with it.
I'm a trusting person. I see the good in people. I expect the best. For me, I try to be nothing but good, do no harm to others, treat them as I would like to be treated. It keeps me at ease, and I feel pure with god. And, my heart, like most of yours (you may deny it ) does not sink to the floor when you hear something like the phrase "i have something I need to talk to you about." LOL!
Well, being a trusting and nice person has paid off until last night. I lost an item worth 35 million NPs. He had it up on the trades lot. He also had about 75-100 million of other things in his trades, so this guy is just a total idiot thinking he is going to get away with it. At this point, I was so pissed that I didn't even care about the "main" that I was using. I didn't have much on it, I was still kinda building it up and training a pet. The only this that pisses me off is that I paid for VIP just to get all-star rank on the AC Cup. Lost that.
I put an offer on the RSS, nothing else. I then proceed to give him a neomail. I just said something like
about 3 forums that you frequent you couldn't transfer all that stuff fast enough before we both go down. If I'm not getting that RSS back (the only thing of value I had in the account), then I'm taking you down with me...accept the damn offer I made and be on with your day.
He takes down his trades lots. I figure, shit! He's transferring his stuff! No. What does this idiot do? You can't even guess. First of all he's practically on a shelll account. You can't just sell an item worth 35M, and expect to get away with it. The BD Chat will tear you a knew one. And an RSS? Have you seen the Defense Magic shop lately? Yeah. r99's do not stock very often there anymore. He puts all his shit up for auction, and at ridiculously low prices.
Ok I'm all %&*^# up and I'm writing way to much about way to little. Long story short, obviously people on the BD Chat are like omg look at this scammer. And all the usual people who bid on illegit stuff, get their bids in. Once I aw the auctions..I just put it out there everywhere that he was supposed to buy the RSS for USD but..forgot to pay me!
So yeah he got iced.
I know I'm making a long story about this. But it's a lesson for you guys.
USE A FUCKING MIDDLEMAN IF YOU DON'T THINK IT'S SAFE!!!!
If you're gonna scam someone be smart. Wait, what am I saying? Scamming people is for fucking losers..
So I guess, a week ago (that's what my shield says on the lookup), I had created a bunch of accounts for shop wizard searching. I had chosen a pretty good name, too, and I had ran the YYB AP on it and got past level 10 at least. So I'm starting fresh, from a 1 week account, and going to do it completely legit. I could just load it up with a bunch of pure from a list of actives that I'm securing..but where's the fun? I haven't tried doing everything completely legit in a whileee! I might make a blog out of it or something. I urge you guys to join me
If I wanted to start something like a "track your progress from a newbie account" thread, urging others to join in and track their progress as well, where would I post such a thread?

Sorry to hear about the scammer but good luck rebuilding! I find it hard to not use programs
This person you were trading with wasn't on ck were they?
Sorry to hear about the RSS, hopefully that kid at least gets what's coming to him!
I'm really sorry that happened, scammers fucking suck. I got scammed on another site as well, it made me really distrustful of people for a while. I still am pretty paranoid honestly. It's sad that people feel the need to do shit like that.
That's terrible , overall. GoodLuck REBUILDING ! StaySafe Next Time And Watchout!
Certain other places tend to have higher cases of scammings =/ not to mention any. I'm very happy here, if you are careful and smart you are generally ok
Sorry to hear you were scammed, that's horrible :/
I'm going to rebuild to, but because I've sold my main. I will join you and chat along the way
