Once, I wanted some rare princess. Someone said they had some. I had a Koala PSI TV. They wanted it. They said they needed to go soon. So, they said to become friends and they'd send me some later. I said, "Are you sure you will? I've heard people don't usually do this when they say they will." They said, "Oh, I'd never do that! I promise!" So, I traded with them and all a got was a dumb Arte plush! Isn't that so mean? I felt really sad, I was so upset I felt stupid and like a fool. I never got my things. *Sigh* Now, whenever I see someone trying to trick someone into this, I tell them not too. Thanks a lot, naz! (the pet's name. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say the username. I hope this is ok also, since it is sorta trade talk.)

If there are that many dishonest people out there who would lie to get free stuff well that would be sad, all I know is this happened to me and webkinz has always fixed all my other issues I have had, I don't see why they won't do the same in this case.
I know! I don't think trading isn't safe though. I'll be extra careful though!
This happend to me when the trading room first came out. I lost 3 exclusives. But in my situation I did hit the trade button they pulled a glitch and I just got a junk item. I have heard that there are people who know how to use a trick on the computer so they can rip you off. I am so sorry it happened to you. Good luck.
Hey everyone, just got off the phone with Ganz and they said they can't give me my items back, I was really disapointed so I asked to speak to a manager. He was unavailable so I am waiting for him to call me back. I don't have any hope of getting my stuff back and am very upset that I am getting punished for their glitch! If he does'nt help me than I am done with trading!
Oh my gosh! I feel so bad for you one time this happened to me but it was with my purple witch hat they were going to trade me year one print and trophy and then they switched it to year 3 trophy and year 4 print I lost my favorite item of all time and now I just go into like girls rule room and other rooms besides trading rooms
I am so sorry everyone is having so much trouble in the trading rooms. When exiting a trade, you should remove the items you have up for trade. That way, you won't lose the items because of a glitch.
On a more personal note, When I first started trading, I didn't like dealing with dishonest people on WW, so I stopped trading altogeter. After discovering WI, I found out about the GE and worked towards becoming gifted. Eventually, I applied for the GE (twice) and now I am a gift guru with lots of successful trades. WI members are honest and fair, especially when we are held accountable. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.
How did they take it?? I never even clicked trade!!!
I don't understand how it happens but I have had it happen to me too. I had clicked the first trade button but I never clicked the final button... the one with the countdown. Suddenly the trade went through without me finalizing it. Lucky for me, I didn't lose anything great.
I am in the Trading room for hours every day (I idle there while working and/or reading news), alternating between KC and KC-Plus and making dozens of trades daily, and I have never seen anything like what the poster describes. There is always a chance than a new horrible glitch, or an even more horrible cheat/exploit, exists but is not widespread yet (fortunately!) - but until I see it myself or hear a solid confirmation, I wouldn't give such report too much credit.
Here is an important recommendation on how to avoid getting ripped off in Trading room: before confirming a deal, hover over the items with your mouse and ensure that the items you see are truly the items you trade for! There is a way to replace the items in the last moment, intentionally or not, before trading that leaves the other side unaware because the item pictures won't change, but the mouse-over tip will!
In any case, if you cannot stand the heat get out of the kitchen. The world of WI GE beckons. You likely won't score a trade of a lifetime there, but you won't be insulted or ripped off, either.
