I dont know how this guy did it... but when i selling my sharks he put up a desirable amount of money, which i would agree was fair... so i accepted... the second screen said he was only giving me a fraction of what i saw in the first screen.... but i was too late. i reacted on impulse and pressed accept on the second too fast, only seeing the small amount of money he offered me in the corner of my eye... and what really really pissed me off was that his name was O0 O 0 O0 00O 00 O 0 leaving it impossible for me to report him cause i dunno if they are 0 or O

this really isnt a scam but still listen. this guy came up to me and tryed to sell me a rune hally for a crazy amount like 700k. and i said no. so he thinks im a noob and says this is a good offer, and you wont see a deal like this. and he goes on and on and on untill finally i say " ok! "







and then in the trade screen i put up a tinderbox and wipered to him







" the moneys in the box....."







and he declined and called me a noob for a while then left. to this day i do that when people bug me.







isnt that a good one :D

This one is partly my own fault, but one day I was buying coal off of people and I found some to sell me 50 coal. They put up the coal and then quickly switched the coal for iron. Because I wasn't paying attention, I ended up accepting the trade.







Oh well, my own fault for not paying attention.







Also, this one isn't a scam it was really just annoying.







I was smithing one day and some noob comes up to me and says for me to give him money. I say no and he starts following me around saying he won't stop following me unless I give him money. So I just ignore him and he finally goes away after like 15 minutes. I should have probably reported him or took him to the wilderness, but I'm just too nice.

The most stupid scam was during last years (2005) christmas update when Jagex included a huge christmas tree in the centre a Varrock.



For some stupid reason scammers used this tree to create the 'Shovel scam' which is where a scammer would swear blind that if you dug under the tree 100 times you would get a Santa hat!



And of course the scammer would be kind enough to sell people shovels at the once again kind price of between 1k - 5k each.



I asked one of these scammers why he happened to suddenly have such a large amount of shovels for sale and he replied "i went 2 da fally shovel spawn 2 help all these people get santas"



What a nice and kind guy! :wink:

haha I use to stand in varrock world 1 and type "turning bad armour/weapons into rune" so if they gave me a iron plate or dragon hide i'd give them a rune plate.But in order for them to receive the rune they'd have to trade me their item first.yeah it seemed like a scam but in the end the people who traded me received their rune.those who called me a scammer.you missed out on a great opportunity.

I tele from falador to varrock to meet a friend, a guy comes up to the center yelling "Selling Zezima's Burnt Fish/Lobster/Something like that".



The worse part is, people believed him. He almost sold one for 200K to someone before I stopped the player buying it, telling him that a burnt fish is worthless and pointless, regardless of who burns it. Naturally the scammer wasn't too happy.
