:roll: i got scammed twice - in 2 days - didn't even realise straight away so didn't report it - doh!!!! :oops:







the first time was by a player who told me he could heal me and then i'd stay healed and couldn't die. He said it was a cheat and (I know I shouldn't have) :shame: but I thought wow... i've died loads of times and lost stuff what a great idea... but.. he let me die and i lost loads of stuff.... drat...







then - 3 of us were fighting some soldiers and 1 guy suggested we team up and go fighting... so we agreed and off we went. They took me where they said there was lots of gold but took me into the wilds and then killed me (they were both 60+) and i lost my mithril sword and shield and other stuff. :pray:







the moral of this is Trust No One... other players are fibbers and out for what they can take off you. :wall:
It isn't whether you win or lose but how you play the game..

I've once had it that a lvl 60 sold me 1k coal for 180k fair and square, after that he traded again and didn't noticed that he was offering noted iron instead of coal. I have my screen on a very high resolution and then it's hard to see the difference between noted iron and coal, and if you've bought stuff from that guy earlier you kind of trust them and don't look that well.








This is what the second trade screen is for...
Bet you can't guess what Altune means!
You can't? Insanage!

I have been succesfully scammed twice.



Lost full addy (g) the first time due to a switch.



Was all I had at the time but looking back is not so bad.







The second time was a bit worse, not because it was more lost (though it was) but because it was someone I had once trusted. I loan him 1.4m and never seen him since.







Nowadays I don't trust people right away anymore. I have reported multiple scammers who attempted to pull a switch on me in trade screen (within last few day even) and I don't loan anyone anything except for a few close friend. In the end I would say it was worth getting scammed to learn a few things.

I lent a "friend" some runes (1k deaths, 1k chaos, 8k fires, and 4k iron arrows too). He said he would pay be back once he sold the dh helm he got from barrows, so I figured sure (we had been pking together many times, he didn't kill me once though i went mystic pking, and i have known him for a year). He never logged back on.

The only time I was ever scammed was when someone lured me to the mole caves and told me to give my tinderbox to him. Only lost full rune, but that was a lot to me back then.

How I got scammed...







Hmm Wwell it was only about a week ago... I was selling a santa hat in World 2 when he put in 28m, A very great offer for those who dont know. He accepted. I accepted... Right at the second trade screen a telleport to the ice plat. showed up and I stupidly accepted. Then i basicly got owned.







I got hacked...







2 days ago i was hacked. I lost all my things... But apparently taking my items was not good enough for the hacker. He wanted to get me bank, so he advertised a website.



I am now a PERM mute.

one day i was walking around and some dude came up to me in the red castle wars armor, anyhoo he said it was worth like 30mil and yer. i trusted him because he stayed and kept talking, after a while he said i know this glitch in the game and it duplicates all your items. so i grabbed my rune scimmy and full addy and all my cahs (something liek 50k which was a lot to me) and followed him to the goblins villige. he told me to kill one, so i did. then he took me to the zammy shrine with the wine. he said kill the monks then take it and it will duplicate all your stuff. so i killed them all and almost died, i was proad and went to take the wine, but little did i know some monks came back and as i took it then atacked me and i died :( and the worst part was another part of it was to not be wearing any of the stuff so i lost it all

I didn't actually get scammed, but someone tried it.







I tried selling my Red Mask... I'm muted, so I had my friend find me a buyer. He found one, who told him to go just east of varrock. "Kind of by the lumberyard" In otherwords, just north of it, in lvl 1 wild. So my friend accompanies me there, and when he's in wild, trading the scammer, her friend attacks him. I'm just below wild, because I have the mask, and I'm not stupid enough to fall for this.







So my friend is fighting the scammer, and low and behold, he kills him. Splitbark top, mystic bottom, gloves, and boots, rune boots, full rune, obby shield, and whip.







Can you say "Owned"?
