Default Answered: i WAS SCAMMED! Where do I report the person to warn others?

How to I get these 2 scammers on the list that Justin keeps to protect everyone??

I went into the clubhouse and was asked by a black cat, Waggeertail with Spooky to help him get the Webkinz Cares Ice Cream sandwich from a new ribbon pony, Goldygirlpooch with Misty. Of couse he promised to give me *edit* if I did because he said the silly ice scream was importhant to him. I did trade with the pony and gave her the *edit* for the ice scream, What was I thinking????? I said I had 3 of them and that it was OK...well I traded it and when I left the trade, both of them were gone.
Just wanted to let other know that there are so many people, including these 2, that work so well together that they managed to even con me. Really, I am not this stupid but for some reason I fell for it. Maybe because I never saw the ice cream sandwich before.
Well, this is a warning to watch out for these 2.

Oh Softball Mom I am SO sorry to hear about them tag teaming you like that ((hugs)) I have known about this scam for a while, already. If you look in our Clubhouse section there is a guide on how to identify scams and all the different kinds there are.
When someone comes to you and says that you HAVE to trade with them because they already traded with the other person, they are working as a team to get something they want and will stop at nothing to get it.
The other tag-team scam is when you 'see' a trade through their converstaion and it looks like one has scammed the other out of something. One leaves the room and the other stays behind crying. They give you a story that they had no idea that person would scam them and try to rope you in through sympathy.
DO NOT GIVE INTO TAG-TEAM CON ARTISTS.
I hope this is something that others can learn from. I am sorry, Softball Mom, you of all people should not have been treated like that

Yes this scam works if you don't know that its a food item, thank goodness for WI that I know there isn't a chocolate hot air balloon item, and that its just a piece of food.

I'm sorry to hear about this softball mom! I too have been scammed before, with that "S.S. Bounty" food that looks like a ship! We just need to be very careful when it comes to trading, and perhaps more skeptical then we might normally be! I hope you can find some resolution to you dilemma!

The sad part is that I knew it was a food item but I thought it was important to the black cat so I traded. Well, my nice days are going to be over starting right now. No more nice person who just gives away items to people for a bottle of water or buying the little kids items they don't have money for.......OK I vented and feel better now...just watch out for these 2...

OUCH Softball Mom! I am so sorry this happened to YOU. The tag team scenario has happened to me before, and I fell for it hook line + "stinker".

I must add however, in the excitment, you managed to get their information, and that is very helpful to the entire WI community! I was so shaken by being scammed that I was left adjusting my mouth that was left open!
My sincere apologies to you.
THANK YOU for sharing this with everyone here!

Aw, that's sad. I remember how a snowman, Balls of Flurry, scammed my brother(Rabid Fish). He traded a Fancy Tea Service for a *edit*, I think. Or 2006. I can't remember.

I hate how people do that. You didn't deserve to be scammed.
