Can somebody pls verify if this scam/hack method actually exists or if it's a myth? Started playing again a week ago and will be trading soon. I remember back in the eras of 1.08 and 1.09 there were hacks that allowed scammers to "steal" stuff by simply initiating a trade screen. That, once you show your items to the scammer-hacker, something happens where you are booted off bnet and when you come back all your stuff (from your inventory, not stash) is gone. While I have never personally experienced that really scary scam, my understanding is that could only happen after you download something that the scammer asks you to download. But I'm not sure if this type of scam actually ever existed or if it were just a myth. I remember in a duel game long ago when this guy would initiate a trade screen and as soon as you hit OK, you get bumped out of the game. I know for a fact that I have never downloaded anything that someone asks me to download in bnet. Also, what are the most recent scamming methods that I should be aware of. I think I'm more experienced now not to fall for the old switcharoos (Get a green shako with an emerald instead of a real Harlequin Crest...) but it would be nice to know if there are any new really innovative scamming methods.
