What do I do if someone fooled me from the trade forums?

We closed a deal on anni charm, and after I dropped Lo + 3ist he went away.
When I whisper him in game he doesn't answer :(

Yeah, I'm an idiot, I should have told him to drop first since I got a lot more posts.

You should (ok, now I sound like some stupid teacher) always make sure you can trust the guy you trade with, when dealing with stuff that do not work with trade windows.
If you simply cant, ask for someone to be a mediator in the trade, like a mod or someone with thousands of posts, just to be sure.
This is probably the best way.

I guess there is nothing to do about it. My advice to you is to make sure mods take care of him at least. That is, point with the banstick.
It might not give your anni back, but at least he won't fool more people.
Sorry for your loss

Man, that sucks.
And the LO you lost was self found, right?
I hope he gets banned, he's already making deals with other people.

thou why would you trade like this anyway? I'dd trade half first, then ask anni, then trade other half.
It's a bit like the rush-for-rq principe, you won't rush any further then mephi unless they give the runequest :uhhuh:

the thread starter should report the person to a mod. If he is still making trades on these forums, the mod will most likely take some kind of action.

How do I report? with the report bad post feature?

Yeah the Lo was self found... I did find another Lo this morning(only 2 high runes I ever fond if you don't count ist as a high rune).

On an 'anni' trade be certain all is posted on your trade thread. What is being traded for the 'anni' what the game name is (not pass) who is trading and when. It is called "documentation" All that leaves is him saying he didn't get the charm. If 'anni' trades are arranged through PMs then you have nothing at all, so don't let that happen.

We are warned about the risks of 'drop' trades in the trading forums and there may be no recourse here.

Sorry for your loss ..that really blows!

EDIT. I went back and read your trade thread and you were very careful. I posted a comment supporting you there.

If you haven't done so yet, you should report the situation directly to your forum's moderator (try a PM or just 'report post' button). S/he may take action if the circumstances and evidence are reasonably in your favor.

Unfortunately, unless you have screenshots or he admits to what he did, the mods may not be able to do anything about it. It would otherwise be your word against his and contrary to what others may tell you, post count is meaningless for making a determination (unless the guy is a returned banee or has been reported before).

As others have said, we are warned repeatedly about the dangers of drop-trading. Most people who trade here would never rip another member off but it does happen on very rare occasions.

I'm very sorry to hear that this happened to you. :(

...IF it happened on our trade forums...

As far as I remember Anni trading is not covered since it occurs outside the trade window.

In trade matters it is still better to seek the advice of that forums trade mod. Also view the relevant trade forum's rules.
