[ATTENTION SHOPPERS] New auction tool: scam

Tuesday 21/09/2010, 18:12

Hello all,

I've seen several people trying to sell Rass, Kiki or Berserkgirl for surrealist prizes with a title saying the cards were the collector version (which wasn't).
It is scam and it leads to a ban.

I repeat :
It is SCAM and it leads to a BAN

So the idea is not as clever as it seemed.

Admins and mods acted pretty quickly to remove the initial influx of fraudulent auctions, but yes, two people with whom I've made deals worth 6m+ were involved. I was surprised, and sad :-(

You should stick this mods:thumbsup:

Well i am not sure if they actually wanted to scam people... i bid on one of the auctions of one of the persons you are talking about FIF. I talked to him after i realized the card was not actually a CR and he would have given me back the clintz. So maybe they should only get away with just a warning this time....

Take that hahah, he does have a point though

I know, FIF. I lost my best friend on UR.

And I don't know what hurt me more: the fact that he's gone, or that he broke my heart by doing something so immature.

@ Vinyl-Scratch

Fraud is fraud. And the thing is...
Pull off a scam either successfully or unsuccessfully = you get banned.
Don't pull off a scam = you stay in the game.
I think it's a very very simple rule to follow.

@Force, so your using that how it is argument. I know that how it is but I'm just stating it is unfair. It doesn't deserve a ban, maybe a blacklist but not a ban.

@Toxica, what did he do to be banned. Probley something that didn't deserve a ban.

What did he do to get banned? What is this thread about? :sweat:
