    Trade Bad Experience - Just to share

    I have started to play just for less tan 2 months, but just have 3 good chars to look to some itens, and everey time i get good stuff for noobs i create a game to give that for free (like sigons, mid-Unic Itens, rare itens and so on).

    Unfoortunately i had not find yet Tal Rasha Armor and ammy for my Sorc, and yesterday i got really frustated...

    I Know that there are good people playing on Bnet. But yeterday during a trade someone show me The ammy and sad that need a good armor, i got one Unic n Vault (+ to skill, 700+ to def, and other opts, i dont remenber the name) and when we trade he changes the ammy and give me a lol ammy.

    Ok u can say that i was a dummie, but as i am always fair with others sometimes i forgot that the others dont think like me....

    Just to share.....

    I've had one similar experience in the beginning of season 2, except that I was trading a bul kathos sword (the small one) to war travelers. The guy told me to move my item around and I did and of course the bastard replaced the wt with similar looking boots while I was moving my item. God I felt dumb & bad after that. It's so lame, the benefit is far from good on a scam like that.
    It must be the most common d2 scam there is (and the lamest one, though all scams are lame). I've been paying attention in my trades ever since :p
    I'm sorry for your loss.
    Happy future trading experiences!

    its a common way to scam people, but learn from the mistake and always look twice if not even more. You will most surely be exposed to similar scams again.
    be careful! :thumbsup:

    Back then when i thought all the people playing Diablo wore tie-die shirts, liked to watch rainbows, and had smily faces, I tried to trade my Gris armor for a Skulleders. The guy switched it to a magic russet armor and i got scammed. I didn't really lose much but it broke my dreams about D2 players around the world.

    I concur. You ARE a dummy.

    Do you know how many ppl try to scam with Enigma / other R/Ws and keep avoiding hitting the button saying, " Oh no room" or "Wait whispering friend" and in the end put the same base item except it is always normal or magical, and even Ethereal to give that R/W kind of a look and hit OK asap hoping that you'd be dumb enough to click OK?

    I do feel sorry for you, but you were a dummy and hopefully you learned from the scamming bastard. :D

    After being scammed at least once, you learn from it. Also, it shouldn't be hard to obtain Tal Rasha's set after 2 months of play, you're just not collecting enough Pgems. On BNet you could trade about 30-35 for a Pul and get the Ammy, and 2 Puls will get you the Um and that would get you the armor.

    You type kind of funny for a 25 year old... :lol:
