    Scammers are still a thing :(

    A person took advantage of me being a new player and got 287 Faerie Dust for only 3000 flux. I was shorted about 30k flux. Yea, my pocket book's is still smoken.

    I would love to name him and his club, since he is the VP of the club, but there are these things called innuendo's, addendum's and quid pro quo's, not to mention rules. I wasn't really aware of the market and am just new at learning the game. At the time of trade faerie dust was selling for 125 flux each, or 35875 flux.

    I filed a ticket, but doubt anything will come of it since it was a private trade at a trade box.

    added: Why is Faerie Dust so expensive you ask? I spent the last 14 hours grinding to make up my loss.

    I always deal fare as I can both ways, buying or selling.

    But your idea of a scam is so wrong.
    Someone is willing to buy K for X.
    You sell them K for X.

    How did they scam you?

    That's not a scam, that's a transaction done as stated.

    In your own words, nothing was scammed. You were taken advantage of but that isn't against the rules. You agreed to the trade, I highly suggest as others have already that you always check the market first. A lot of the market play is done by taking advantage of people. Buy low, sell high. You were the person they bought from for low and they might sell it for high. That's how people make money in life.

    Possible fix would be to have the market trade value of an offer show up on the trade box screen.

    Not sure how difficult this would be to program but having the trade interface pull and add up the lowest price of items trading on the market and show that value for both sides of a trade could help. If an item in the trade box was not on the market it could just display "???" or some warning.

    Would at least fix scamming involving normal market traded commodities.

    People could still choose to trade even if it was under market if they wanted, wouldn't hurt for them to at least be made aware of it.

    Being fooled and scammed is completely 2 different things, you should be careful next time in selling things, make sure you know the average price of it first, I pity his action, if possible I can give you some donations, but you are in playstation and I play on pc, too bad.. >.>

    It’s not fooled...
    If one party happens to know more about this item, good for them.

    We should praise the informed not pity the uninformed.

    This is not a case of a person seeking new players and preying on them. That’s different as it has intent to rip people off. This was a clearly a uniformed person selling items they knew nothing about.
    Can this subject die? I’m cringing as I type this lol...
