There is a reason people choose WI over other sites.

My guess is that it's several factors... one factor is the amount of people who come here. It's far more appealing to post on a site where you know your question will be answered quickly because the site has so many members. Another factor is the safe trading. Even though WI can't offer a guarantee or 100% protection against scammers, I think the site does a good job of discouraging scammers by requiring that you have 50 posts, be a member in good standing for 2 weeks, and then request to be added to the gift exchange. I'd be willing to bet that a lot of scammers simply find other sites to trade at when they find out all that you have to go through here in order to trade.

Sagekinz, that's exactly right. scammers aren't usually willing to put in that much effort. and they're only going to get away with one scam and then no one is ever going to trade with them again.

This simply isn't true. While people have been scammed on WI, the ratio of good trades to bad trades is much higher than most sites out there. In fact, according to our iTrader database, we have recorded 39,294 exchanges on WI, and I'd say less than 20 "scams" that we know of. I think that's a pretty good ratio.

This is true, too. We make it increasingly difficult to get in, and keep our members informed. Anyone new to the GE is always required to send first, and all of our members know it, so they don't get "tricked" into sending first by scammers. In addition, scammers are less likely to scam here because our Gift Exchange is so valuable. There's so much being available in the GE that many people wouldn't want to jeopardize their membership to lose access to the goods in the Gift Exchange!!

Da man speaks the truth! I is the most in-depth of all sites, has a security system better tha WW's(although that is not saying much, it is also better than other sites), answers questions quickly and efficiently, and holds secrets not released for months. The only thing it doesn't have is a button that takes you to the login screen, but nobody cares. You can buy your Webkinz here, make friends, and still know you are safe.

Well in my opinion WI is more friendly than other sites like better staff and nicer. There really is no scammers. Whenever there is they get sent back out again.
