Default Are People Testing Gifters To See If They Follow The Rules?

I'm just curious if anyone knows if there's people out there trying to get gifters to break the rules. i am a few trades and a few posts away from guru status and i just had someone w/no trades pm me and offer me a cso i wanted for 1 i had. they had posted on my thread too that they wanted my item but made no offer. i pm's saying cuz of rules all neg. to be done on my thread. i then posted in my thread what could they offer me i didn't ask 4 item they offered in pm. they offered me the cso and a psi. i said that wouldn't be fair to them and said would just trade cso/cso unless they wanted something else of mine i wouldn't take psi they offered. i then pm'd them to say i responded and to check my thread. they then logged off and didn't respond. while i respect the rules i'm wondering if this was a legitimate newbie making an offer or if it's someone trying to get someone to break the rules to get thread shut down. has anyone else had something like this happen to them? i obey the rules and if it was someone just messing w/me or trying to test me i don't appreciate it. it wastes my time and if you just review someones thread you can see that they obey rules you don't need to try and trap someone.

would love some feedback on this please.

if someone tries to trade via pm with you, forward the pm to an admin and let them take care of it

I am sure that whoever is doing it and doesn't have a trade yet doesn't know the rule

The Best Thing To Do Is To Tell Them There Is No Trading With You Through Pm And To See You On Your Thread If They Continue Report It...

I've had it happen, and I told them to make the offer on my thread, but they never did. Also, the offer was fishy - two new exclusives for a boring rare. I've noticed that they have had two trades - one before they pm-ed me and one after.

the mods keep a pretty close eye on trades andpm's so what you got was probably just anouther newbie who agreed but did not read rules
