Scammed Hard and feeling....


Scammed Hard and feeling....


Ok i was trying to get a eth zerker for my legit Vex and Zod and this guy comes in my game saying he only has a already botd eth zerker with 179% ed and 14 ll. So i start to think hmm i always have bad luck with automods so ill offer my vex + zod + gul + tal armor + tal amu for it and he say's "wait a seccond plz :)" so im thinking hmmm is he going to do a tradeswitch or so? Hehe paranoid me... Anyway after a min or so he say's "Damn i need room friend comes" so we wait some secs and indeed a friend comes te make contact and he comes to me again. He put's the Zerker on the screen and i check indeed it is the ETH botd Zerker... so i start pumping the runes and tal items on the trade screen. After im finished i check again and indeed it is the ETH botd but to make sure i check the %ed and ll and indeed its the same Eth Botd so ask him "So we gonna trade it?" he say's "Yep its ok like this" and i check one more time (was very cautions since i spended wekks getting the runes and offered my last good items for it) and i finally pressed "V". Then as i click i immediately dropped out of the screen to the normal view so i thought he still needed more space so i check my inventory for the runes and i see a botd zerker.
I check again its a NON-ETH ZERKER..... OMG has max damage of 340^^

So its even sucky compared to a scheaffer :(
And my sorc hasnt got a tal gear anymore, i got no descent charge weapon and have absolutely noway of getting a botd eth zerker anymore since this was a one time shot for me only.

Sure maybe for dupers and botters its easy to say bad luck better of next time but i fell quite !&$%ed and have no change of building my new charger now and must honestly say after seeing my vex and zod get wasted into a sucky non-eth zerker i realy want to break this !&$%ing games CD....

Flame and laugh ahead^^
That sucks dude, at least you got something out of it though. i'm surprised the idiot didn't just switch out for an eth war axe or osme crap...

now I am scared to do any trade with someone from a chan.

I was just gonna sell my perfect mara for a jah, I made the game but he didn't open the trade window 3 times.

hehe I just left.

i got done by this hack except i lost ALOT more and got ALOT less.

i was trading loads of stuff (includinga non eth 390% / 15% bod cb, 37/15 ias jewel, eth botd ogre maul and some more stuff) and i was trading for an eth botd cb. i was pretty annoyed but i got back into the game again and now i got a good set of gear again.

sorry to hear bout your loss tho

always sucks to get scammed. When i was first starting out i got scammed royally. I was lucky enough to get 3 sojs for an occulus i had grabbed in a free stuff game (this is when sojs were still currency). I had 4 sojs after that trade. i saw a game called "3 cruels for an soj" so the guy puts up a 287% ccb a cruel phase and a cruel myth. we trade.

At this point i felt i had enough wealth to upgrade my zons bow to eaglehorn. So i go into a game and well the guy switched it for a cliffkiller...

i know it doesnt sound like much, but it prevented me from getting an eagle for months! and i was dirt poor then

Ok, he just started out just saying eth zerker.

Sorry you got scammed, that really sucks...thats one of the reasons I stay away from trades.
heh.. a 0 or 6 socket eth zerker goes on us east ladder for 2 sojs ez, any eth botd'd zerker goes for 3 and up depending on %..

anyway.. yea sorry for what happened to ya.

that sucks man
all hackers should be shot...or atleast get their accounts frozen
whatever works :D


Thnx for the reply's :)

And indeed im glad a atleast got a botd wich btw works better on my zealer then a scheaffer so it has its use but still....^^

Sometimes I look at all the stuff I pile up and the stuff I throw away, and I think if I were willing to trade with people I'd end up with just about everything and really have something to show for my time. Then I read something like this and I say the hell with it. I don't trade. I doubt I'll ever have the best stuff but what I got is legit and I don't have to worry about losing it.

I got scammed with the "friend coming through the harem" scam yesterday. I was going to give away the Gheeds I got scammed for anyway, so it doesn't matter, but they guy had an ik armor so it got to my head. (silly me) ~Adam

I was scammed using this or a similar technique. Luckily I didn't really lose much. I had just gotten into ladder and found an Andariel's Visage. Well being new to ladder I thought this was a big find! So i went to a game "SS here" or something along those lines, because I needed an SS for whatever reason at the time. Well he shows the SS, which was UM'd. I show my Andy helm and he agrees. I checked the SS one last time, still there, click the check. I say TY and leave the game. I goto an xfer game where a friend would help me xfer and I check my inventory and low and behold, it's a STEELCLASH. Thankfully it wasn't much of a loss, but I still was scammed nonetheless. :mad:
