Ouch. I don't believe anything is rare until I check the shops for it.

could have been worse, but still it's sad that people want a blob of pixels so bad that they're willing to ignore all their moral values and scam new players.. :sad2:

There are a lot of players out there who, sadly, will try to trick you. However, there are also many who just dont know. I have had players that I am convinced are young kids try to tell me that Narnia items (which are free and still available) are really rare. When I explained to them that they were still available, they told me they did not know and that's what they were told. In many cases, I think they are actually being honest, they just dont know themselves.

You mentioned that you are new to vmk. Take a look at the Players Guide located towards the top of the main vmk message board page (not Trades and Wishes). It has a list of every vmk item and whether it is beta, rare, available, etc.... This can be a very useful tool for you as you learn the many many many items that are out there. :)

And just know that it could have been a LOT worse than gold doors. Although I understand your frustration.

that is the SAME thing i said about something else....on a website that i shouldn't name, someone bought a pair of green flips for $795.00. i dont think i would ever spend that much money on virtual shoes....but hey ppl can do what they want.

i do agree tho, i cant believe someone would try to scam you like that...gold doors isnt the worst thing in the world to lose, but it isnt about the item you lost, its about the whole principal of it. ppl go so far to try and get what they want....its ridiculous sometimes.

i feel your pain!!!

I completely agree. A boy tried to trade me the "brand new Animator's fireplace" which was just released, he said. When I told him I didn't believe there was any such thing, we opened the trade window and he showed me the Toontown fireplace from Christmas! I set him straight and he said he was just repeating what the person he had traded with told him.

Every trade room I go into, people declare they have really, really rare and beta. They have neither. But they THINK they do...

Now, I've seen a lot of things get sold on that "unnamed" site. But seriously...$795 for something that's not even tangible? *eye roll*. I ought to do that...maybe I can make that kind of money! LoL.
