[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.

The auctions should have a report a problem link like the events do. I just found a guy running 3 scams with Kiki and Rass listed as CR, but neing normal and one for 10 zatmans, but is actually 2 zatmans and 8 janines......

It's probably worth noting that people who are banned can appeal to Customer Support. I can think of a number of prominent players who've been banned and allowed to "re-enter" the game after contacting support, explaining their cases, and asking for the ban to be lifted. Sometimes it was immediate, sometimes they were forced to wait a few weeks or months and then ask again.

I'm sorry, but how is tricking kids 'CLEVER'?

Well, congratulations then, *Slowly Claps* you just brought new meaning to the phrase 'like taking candy from a baby'.

Welcome to Market Scams 101, you all just failed your first lesson.

Got to say.... outright scams like that need swift and harsh punishment. scamming often becomes chronic, especially after people get away with it the first couple of times.

People pay actual money for this game. stealing clintz can be like stealing money in a way.

Not a light matter.

People have been doing it for the more expensive noel cards as well, eg Hawkins

From what I've seen, the # of scams has plummeted since yesterday. I'd say that the "not Kiki Cr" titles are perfectly fine. Unfortunately, not only have some people been affected by scams, but tons of others, myself included, have experienced the "you don't have enough clintz so I'll just steal all the clintz in your bank instead" glitch. Hopefully this gets ironed out soon.

On a different note, I have to admit I was intrigued by the forum title. "New auction tool: scam". I was looking forward to a new "Scam" button. ;)
