Default Re: New Scam In Trading Room?

It's no different than adding someone to your friend list. Someone having your user ID is no big deal, just use a secure password. No one can hack your account from your user ID.

But it's too risky to be doing unless you know the other person because chances are either person A will trade their good stuff and person B will never send the points. Or person B will send the points first and person A will never send the stuff.

If you are going to trade in the trading room, make sure it's tradeable items you can exchange right there only. Sadly you just can't trust everyone. On WKN they trade estore points a lot and as long as you are trading with an established trader it's fine. I still recommend trading in the trading room though because even on there where it's posted for everyone to see people get ripped off quite a bit.

You're confusing the label of "scam" with what is "possible." Is it possible to send estore points from one WW account to another? Yes. But is it likely/realistic that a complete and total stranger in the trading room will send you estore points at a future point in time if you go through with the probably unfair trade right then and there? No.

It's the same principle as if someone says "trade me your pet item for my apple and I will send you the panda slide." Is it possible for the person to send the panda slide after the trade takes place? Yes. Is it likely/realistic? Absolutely not.

I haven't seen it but since I'm about to go into the trading room I might. Your not allowed to get estore points unless someone gifts em to your account. It most sounds like a scam to me

You can't trade estore points. They are trying to scam someone. I've seen it sometimes. I don't trade anymore but I did try recently and I do see scams. Sometimes I try to help out to let someone know they shouldn't do that they will get scammed.

i think i know why they do this.it is very clever

1.trade a REALLY good item for "estore points" and get hacked

2.call ganz and give the "hackers" info (like pet, pet name, first 3 letters or they may friend you to find out your user name)

3. the "hacker's" account gets banned

so they do it so you are sad.very, very bad.it is always good to be cautious

You don't need their password, but in most cases it is a scam.
