Default RAMLAIN - bait and switcher



Topic says it all. Details as follows: puts fungi tunic in
trade window, I put 50k and hit trade. Deal is cancelled by Ramlain,
complaining about lag. He then tells me to hurry up, I initiate
the trade again and he then put a cloth tunic in the window, which
looks *exactly* the same as a fungi tunic.

One more jerk in the game to be on the look out for - RAMLAIN

Be well,

Algarr

What are the rules regarding trading? Will Verant back the scammer or the scammee in this instance? Or is the onus placed on the scammee to ensure the trade is legit?

Dut - who hardly ever trades anything and has never been scammed.

Its never happened to me but it has happened to some of my friends and without a doubt Verant ALWAYS backs the scammer. It is your fault because you hit trade, and all I can do is boggle as to how this twisted logic became game policy. At least on emarr cs sucks because scammers are not punished.

Way back in June of 99, I first heard of this scam. I was in my early teens. The victim was shouting, and shouting, and shouting to all of Gfay about some bastard who took all his money. He had been sold a rusty battle axe for 4pp. He thought he was buying a Mino Axe (remember when we prized mino axes?). I felt so bad for the guy I gave him one and I put the scammers name on my ignore list. Then, in my mid 40's I deleted his name and some others. Well, not long after there he was in Lguk arguing with someone about ksing and being an asshole in shouts. So, I /ooc'd a little shame on him.

It taught me early, though... Always check items before you click trade.
