    I am a fool. Just got stolen

    I was trading my occy and mavinas belt for a war travelers. When I hit the accept button my stuffs came back to my inventory. The other guy said wut happened? I said I dun't know. I put my stuff, he put the bootds we trade, he left and I found that I have magical bpopots no war travs. ARGGGHHHHHH. I can't believe how stupid I was. I assume that what happened is that the first time he show warT then the second time he switch to others and I didn't checked. Gues thta April'sfools day came earlier this year

    Always check the item before you hit the button, that is the oldest trick in the book he pulled, and it still works...

    One of the oldest tricks, but sad anyway. Always check before hitting the accept button. I hope you did not loose all you wealth here.
    Best regards.

    I was giving some monkey free boots this weekend and he tried pulling some crap like this on me. I was going to give him the item for free ... and clearly said so ... but he felt the need to offer me some stupid rare glaive or something. Just as I was hitting the accept button, the boots kicked back into my inventory.
    I threw them back up and aclicked accept ... once done, I noticed he put up a cracked glaive or something like that.
    How stupid is that?

    Has to be an assclown when I was offering something for free.

    Yeah, I hate that. One time, before the patch, I was trading this guy my 09 valor for his 09 ss. :p When all of a sudden he did the full scam and put up a set shield Milebregas (don't know how to spell it). I was so mad! Another time, I offered some cheap stuff for a shaft because I didn't have much. He said he would trade me and he says, "You have to be fast." When I put my items up he showed it and clicked accept really fast. Not really thinking he would do it, I looked at the armor before he closed the screen off and it was a magic mesh armor. I was laughing so hard at his scam that he defended with, "It was a shaft. You should have been quicker."

    some guy tried the same switch with stormshield to unique kite shield to me before the patch. when i noticed he'd switched it before i went to click the check button, he was so mad he called me "noob" and told me to do something that isn't humanly possible.

    True...a very old trick...should stick with the forums here, that wont happen here (atleast I hope). Nevertheless, really sucks for you.

    I recently traded Angelic set for a Pally Combat GC, and after the trade was over and I had already left, I realized I never looked at the charm at all. I was scared he had scammed me without even trying, but I got the charm.

    ....I don't know what I was thinking....
