I was level 3, fresh from tutorial island. Some guy comes up to me and says "hey i can clone your items!!!" and i said "ok show me how"







Little did he know i was very good with computers and knew the shortcut keys.







he said "drop all your items and press alt + f4."







i said "in my computer classes i learnt that button closes the window..." and instead of dropping anything i reported him and ran back to lumbridge to kill level 3 mans.

I find it funny when noobs try to scam my pures >.<

I was merchanting after I payed my friend 500k for a good way to merchant.







I was just nomral merchanting trying to get some money so i can try his way.







I only had like 178k after trade.







Ok so i bought 100 bolt racks brocken even on them. Sold my old obby cape as quest cape is same stats and never take off. and sold 23 hides.







I had something like 433k afterwards.







Then I realise that obby capes are selling for 270k.







So i find another seller for 250k. Was so happy cause there were people selling for 270k around them.







Found a buyer quickly offered it for 260k. Then the buyer canceled trade. Then I traded again and they decliend again.







I was thinking what the hell. Then I looked at my inv and I had a noted black cape instead of a noted obby cape.

Some guy I don't know and PMs me asks if I have a (worthless item I knew nothing about) to sell to him for 4.2m. Then a different guy randomly trades with me and offers that item. I show 800k in items for some reason. Then I decline and think it is a scam. After talking to the guy who PMed me, I think that it might not be a scam. I don't know how, but I talked myself into thinking it wasn't a scam (this is the first time I have ever fallen for a scam).



Well i eventually make the trade, and both guys log out (put me on ignore list probably). Well now I feel like an idiot since I realized the item was barely worth 15k. I still don't know why I did it. I will not mention the item because it will make me look like a fool. I should have known what it was. :wall:

When I was like 60 combat, I lured people in the rangers guild, though I quickly learned it was bad to do so.

i almost got scammed when this guy pmed me and said he would buy some grog for 10m saying it was a rare item. There was someone selling grog for 1m at the bank i was in and i was thinking get rich quick, but something told me not to do it. so i try to tell these two about each other trying to get a finders fee but the buyer pulled the "I g2g" card i looked what world he was on... non-members. i figured it out before i was scammed for all my good stuff

once, when d meds were worth about 1.2 mill, i saw someone selling a d med for 1 mill, so i'm like 'omg i can get cheap d med!' So I trade him, and at the last moment he takes away the d med, but thankfully i notice this and cancel the trade, and he teles. This was before you could see the name of your trader on the screen, so i wasn't able to report him :x







When i was like lvl60 i was scammed out of 10k (omg!!) when i thought a rock hammer was a g maul :cry:

I was sitting in Seer's bank, trying to sell some maples (one of the most annoying items to sell that are still actually sold), when somebody offered me 1k unstrung yew bows for 3k maples. I'd have prefered cash, but at least unstrung yew bows are much easier to sell or use (75 fletching). He switched the yew bows (u) to maple bows (u) or maybe willow bows (u), I can't remember. I was quite disappointed when I saw what I had gotten. I probably would never have been able to sell the maples anyway, but this was a terrible waste all the same.

I had just gotten 40 range, and I was all excited to try out the rangers guild. I hadn't read any guides, and I knew nothing about it, but I decided to be careful and bring my full addy armor, which was a whole lot to me.







I tried out the ranging game, then went to try out the ranging tower. Some level 50 or 60 girl offered to buy my yew shortbow for 10k, which was a lot when i was that level.







She said she wanted to range some guys first, so i went up there with her. After about a minute she traded me, then ran out into the level 64 rangers spot. Of course I was oblivious, so I followed, and was killing very quickly. I lost my precious full addy, full green dragon hide, and the 20 rune arrows my friend gave me for getting 40 ranged.







I ran back as quick as a I can, and she was still there, where she laughed at me and called me a noob lots =(







Oh well, I'm probably richer then her is she still plays now =)

Whilst selling Super Sets I fell for the 200k to 20k scam - Gah!



I was so used to accepting cos' I'd sold like 100 sets that I saw the scam and called him a scammer and then accepted... Nooooooooo! :wall:







Can I name him? I'd love to but probably get into trouble here.







There seems to be a lot of "my friend will buy all Spr sets u got" scam atm.



Just meet him by the 'alching spot' - the what spot? Oh! it's just north of Edgeville bank. Yeh right....
