How Many Times Have You Been Scammed In The Gift Shop?

38 posts in this topic

Zero times, and how did you get scammed?

I was trading with someone and I had one light on and they were trading gems then they quickly switched to 0 gems and we both put 2 lights on and then I couldn't cancel and they left blocked communications when I kept trying to invite them to the game :( but that was only one time.

What did you trade and did you report him?

I got scammed plenty of times. I don't wanna go into much detail, or else I'll break my laptop.

I got scammed once...

 

It was a horrible night when i went to the gift shop and was scammed. I had decided to get Gerald, and he had gerald up, and i was trading him for gems, but all of the sudden my controller wouldn't work! Horrified, i look at the screen to see my lava lamp on my screen and 0 gems on his. My lights turned green and we traded! I then got kicked out of the game and was sent back to the home screen, and then my controller finally turned back on...

Sounds like some naughty 3rd party software being abused here.

I find it amusing when people claim they got "hacked" in bizarre ways, like above quoted instance.  Not saying this didn't happen... but if someone took the time to create a hack that took control of another player's controller and game system, I think that they would use that kind of skill towards something other than taking a single star head.  Especially when its possible to just hack the game and give yourself all of the star heads which would be a much simpler hack.

Pretty much everyone I've tried to trade with has tried scamming me. I've not even managed 10 successful trades since I started playing.

It was a horrible moonlit night... I was on a quest to get a handsome gentlemen named MeltedCow Purrham Furbottom. I met two guys with lots of heads. One said that if I gave his friend Swamp Bro, Cat Control, and Santa, He would give me Furbottom the next day since he "had to go to bed". I was so happy to get Furbottom so I agreed, and then that jerk blocked communications with me. About a week later he sent me a troll message. I know his gamertag so I know I cant say it, but does that count in PMs? If a Mod could tell me that It would help alot.

Well, should've traded lava lamp to someone like me who also has Gerard.

I've given furrbottom away for 50 gems! Back then I was a young waffle and hadn't even earned my wings yet, so I was noobish. If I could've gotten 3 star heads out of him, I made a big mistake!

None. I am smarter than the children trying to take my stuff for nothing. I cannot seem to get a trader for boom. 100 gems is about the going rate I saw.
