Aww, I'm so sorry to hear that! I would like the name pm'ed to me so I can stay away from her.

personally, I would have had her put the items in the trade when you traded your items, then do the quest to get the credits.
that way she couldn't boot you.

I'm sorry, and I really do hope you get the items back :( However, I would suggest taking her name out of the pictures you posted. Just run over it in paint. However horrible and discusting a scam is, nobody should be subjected to ridicule and such.

Anyways, I hope you get the items back, but in the future ALWAYS trade your items last if it is a credit trade, if you are not sure of the other person. If they don't wish to do this, then don't trade them. :(

Here is hope for you.. My son got scammed big time about a month ago (lost Sparrow, 5* Coin Magic, 5* Firework Magic and a lot of other stuff) in a Stitch offer and today he got it all back after a few emails back in forth over the last couple days with VMK Shorty! My faith has been restored in VMK and my son is so excited!!

I am very, very sorry this happened to you. :( I hope this person gets what they deserve for scamming you out of those expensive items.

Also, you forgot to edit out their title in the 3rd link when you both accepted the offer. It still says "so and so offers:" at the top. =/ Again, so sorry this happened to you, and best wishes you get them back. :)

i can't say this isn't your fault, it's your fault for believing them in the first place and accepting the offer. they should have put the items in the offer too.

I'm sorry you got scammed. Be careful when trading credits with people outside of those you know.

they made it without a credits button for a reason

Master Gracy
09-09-2007, 06:31 AM
you have said that before to me, and yet you cant come up with a reason, if you can come up with a good reason not to have a credit button I will back down gladly.
to the op im sorry you got scammed, please pm me their name

well, VMK obviously has a reason they dont have the button, it probably has to do with that credits are easy to earn

You know you could be banned in a heart beat for this? Trading for credits is against the rules so I wouldn't report to staff or you might get banned.

Where in therules does it say no trading for credits?

if she was offering magic and more besides credit, why didn't the fact that she did not put those items into the trade when u were giving her that stuff alert you?? I have done alot of credit trades and have been fortunate. Sorry that happened, but you should've seen that one comming.

Trading for credits is not against the rules. It was stated in a Q&A thread on the newsletter that they would prefer you didnt do it. The reason why is obvious because just like the OP is writing, a scam is a very big risk when doing so. But never has it been against the rules

This might help when trading with a player for credits you do not know and giving lots of items. Do it in small trades. 20,000 credits for say these many items. So if the person it out to scam you they will not get as much. I hope they catch this player becausing even though it is virtual stuff it is still stealing and stealing is ban able .

Trading for Credits is not against the rulesjust echoing what Aengus already posted because everyone needs to read it again.

Maybe I'm crazy but I would never even consider trading for credits with anyone other than ppl I know on dis.. Even then I'm scared to death unless its someone I've dealt with in the past.. :scared:

Sorry to hear about your misfortune..

i have never had a problem with credit trades and i have done many, but i have also only done credit trades with fellow disers. i guess my only word of advice would be if it is someone you have not done credit trades with before , then get your item or items first. if they won't agree to it then just tell them no ty and end it there. patience on getting what you want will play a big factor as well. just remember there is always another player trading the item you want, so just shop around until you find someone willing to do it your way next.
sorry to hear about your loss and good luck to you on future trades.

it might sound a little strange, but I have this rule when I do multi trade windows and credit trades.

I ask myself. If this person scams me, how bad will I feel?

Am I ok with that?

I dont think about how bad I want what I am about to get, that will cloud your better judgement. Use your head, not your heart when doing this.

i know i have done many trades with people on the dis and many trades with the people on VMK and i have got scammed by both people the reason i did the trade with this person was beause this person did trade with my friend, and my friend said they did not get scammed by the person so it would be ok. so i trusted the person with the credits. but guess i should have not done the trade with them. thanks for all the kind words and i will try to be more carefull from now on.

p.s i am sending the name of this person to all that have asked
