Another Dumb Scammer ... So ... there I was last night running normal Diablo and Baal trying to find some loot for the Assasin I am trying out (first one I really put some effort into ... she is only lvl 20 so far) ... And along joins 2 characters whom, I will preface by saying, tried desperately to communicate without it appearing that they know each other. Disgustingly obvious. Quite funny stuff. Another preface is that I am a lvl 35 Pali, using a Hellplague Unique Long Sword cubed up (via upgrade recipe) to a rune sword and socketed (via Act5 quest) with a PRuby. Does nice damage, gives me +2 skills and keeps my health and mana full. Anyhow ... I will refer to them as Scammer, Dunce and of course Me. Scammer - Hey Pali, you wanna trade? Me - Nope, just doing some runs. Thanks tho. Scammer - I have awesome scepter ... 4 sockets! Me - No thanks. My weapon serves me fine. Scammer - Does 210 - 360 dam! Me - Mine 305-604 Scammer - +3 conviction Me - +2 skills Scammer - +3 leech Me - +5 L/M leech Scammer - *** insert random baloney stats here, I forget all the crap he listed *** Me - Listen kid, if you REALLY want to get rid of such a UBER weapon ... leave it by my chest. I'll pick it up in a minute. Me - Thanks Scammer - Huh??????????????? Me - I said ... go ahead and drop it if you don't want it, I'll pick it up later. Scammer - Wut u got? Me - I TOLD you ... a better sword than what you are offering. Scammer - Trade NooB! Me - I don't need it. If you don't want it so bad ... go ahead and drop it. Him - NO. You need to give me something for me to give you something. WUG? Me - A couple gems I guess. Scammer - Thats fine, a deal for you ... but only because I have this bug where I cannot show it in a trade window. Me - Oh, then I give you only 3 PTopaz for it then. Scammer - ok. Come trade. *** By this time ... I had been laughing so hard my character got swarmed and died*** Me - The gems are on my body, I just died. I'll be there when I can get it back. Scammer - Come trade THEN get your body Me - Can't ... gems on my corpse. Scammer - Maybe this other guy who is in can help. Dunce - Me? Ya, where is your body. Me - Hell. Dunce - ok ... be right there. *** a few minutes pass by *** Dunce - I can't find you. Where are you? *** keep in mind, we are all partied together. I am in throne of destruction. He is searching thru Act4 for me. All he needed to do was look in his party window! *** Me - Hell ... by where the guys come out from the Ball guy. Dunce - You mean Baal? Me - Yup ... in hell. Scammer - LOL, NOOB! This is normal. Hell is later, after nightmare. Me - No! My manual says you go to hell to beat Diablo. I beat him and am in hell now. Dunce - Well, I can't find you. Scammer - Where is he? You need to find him so I can trade! Come on Joe! (interesting, how would he know the other guy is Joe?) Me - Don't bother ... I think I found myself. Scammer - well ... hurry up. Dunce - Hey ... I am out ... this guy is a stoopid noob. (Dunce leaves game) Scammer - Come on ... now it is going to be harder to trade. Me - Huh? Why? Scammer - Because of this bug I have ... it needs another guy in the window to be able to trade around corners. Now you need to drop in middle of town. Me - Hold on. *** a minute passes by *** Me - My manual doesn't say anything about this? What are you talking about? *** By this time ... Scammer is going crazy! Yelling at me to hurry up or I lose a great deal. Me - Listen ... enough of this. I am not stupid. I have been toying with you for the past 30 minutes. How do you feel to be treated as stupid as you try to exploit others? Scammer - I am going to hack your account ... I am gonna steal your loot ... you suck NOOB! Me - I have been recording this game. I am reporting you to Blizz. I hope you don't have any hacked or duped items ... or any kind of maphack or anything. Scammer - No you won't Me - I am going to as soon as I log off. Enjoy losing your account. This is all going to Blizz. Dope. Scammer - Dont! I was just kidding! I don't want to lose my account! Come to act2 and I'll give you a Gheeds! *** I leave game ... *** The moral of this story ... it takes a very dumb person to go looking for dumb people to pull a dumb drop-item scam on.
