Default Unanswered: Illegal Trading?

Since I joined webkinz, I've been browsing a lot of different forums to find out about trading and item worth. (This is by far the best I have found!)

I noticed a few places offering to trade other items for webkinz items. For example, "kash" from another game for "kinzcash" on webkinz. I know for sure that it is against Ganz policy to trade kinzcash items for real currency, but is it also illegal to trade for items in other games?

From trading on other games, I know this type of thing is usually frowned upon and am hesitant to participate in other forums that break Ganz rules. I'd also consider reporting them to Ganz to protect the integrity of the program.

Anyone have any thoughts or experience with this?

I actually have not thought about it. I don't think its an issue as this Is the first I have heard. but I don't really get how you can trade for items on a different game..unless both of you have accounts from both games..

Yes, that's how it seems to be happening. Someone wants an item on webkins and will offer items from another game for it. It doesn't seem to be happening at all on here since the trades seem to be closely monitored, but three of the other sites I have found exchange webkinz items for items on other games.

I'm going with X.I.C's comment. I've never heard of this idea. I think, if the other game, you have to pay for the currency, then it would not be allowed because Kinzcash is easily gained and Ganz said you can't sell the virtual items, so this is kinda like trading a free currency for a real life bought currency on another game. Sorry If I'm making no sense or making you confused.

You most definitely should report it to Ganz. This is wrong. I mean, I wouldn't want other items other than Webkinz World items if I was trading my best WKW items for lets say, Club Penguin items. No way, Jose!

I never heard of this and some sections of your post do not make sense to me. Is there a way to make what you want to say a bit clearer?
