Aww I'm sorry! Though, you didn't lose anything. Why do people need to be soo greedy? Thanks for the heads up, though.

Ya, you have to watch out for those kinds and just go really slow...
Sometime the lag in the servers will cause the pictures to not change quickly too.. So you just have to go slowly and don't be too eager There are people that will take advantage of that all

Thanks motherkinz....I wonder if it really is just me, but I think the scammers are out in full force because of all the glitches going on in the world of webkinz, and they know how to exploit them---like how the room or the trade locks up, and how new people, new items, or just....watching while no chat plus is going on. Preying on people that can not get to chat plus or WAIT until chat plus is open again, or they got banned from there perhaps?

Since I know there are so many other people getting the similar horrible luck, I know it unfortunately is happening way too often. Too bad ganz won't make it stop.

fluffrnuttr

and they SAID their trading room was going to be SAFE.......

I have dealt with this trader (who has multiple pets) and you are absolutely right. And yes, those who are trying to take advantage seem to be out in full force. I feel discouraged when I see it happen time and again. I have had to click out of so many trades it is not funny. I even had someone try this for a recipe food!!!! I was shocked that they would stoop so low. Thanks you for the heads up. They are not even expensive though it takes kc and time to make them but thisperson tried to trade something even lower in value and that is hard to do.

Thanks for your method of finding the full name. That would never have occured to me.

In Kinzchat PLUS I hate when somebody offers like a shirt and they say "I like SUper Beds" and that is not fair....You reject their small item and they take it down and put it back up again! Argh! If they do that ONE time i cancel the trade with them, you know they are not out for good intentions, and I would only do that kind of trade with a real life best friend.

I have yet to be jipped like this, thanks for letting us know.

Sad, but funny in a sad sad way

I am fully convinced there is a glitch in the clubhouse that people are using to exploit others. I wrote a detailed explanation of how I think it works somewhere in this section of the forum. There is often a visual delay in what we see on the screen vs. what people have switched out for items. I highly recommend waiting until the very last second to accept a trade so WW has a chance to 'catch up' and update visually what you see on the screen in the event items were switched out by another user. I think there are people who are aware of this and just go around from person to person hoping another person's screen won't show what is really there so people click and accept trades that were not really agreed upon. I am pretty convinced that this is what is going on and was afraid to write about it for fear people would exploit it more, but I think it's best that people are aware of glitches that people could be using to take advantage of others so that they can trade as safely as they can in the clubhouse.

Yes, I agree w/ you

Sometime my webkinz will move sooo slow or take forever to catch up to what I'm actually saying or where I'm moving too.. Then you have to think, the pictures and what they have up must have to "catch up" also....
Lots of lag on their servers, and yes those scammers will take full advantage of that...

Basically, from what I can gather you are saying..is do the same as they do on eBay...about 5 seconds before the bid time is up, just press that button and get it out from under their feet. Like they don't know what hit them.
