How I lost my items - by scamming, dying and others

Recommended Posts

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

Well this actually happened to my friend:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A guy offered him dragon platelegs for his full guthix, he traded, then the guy offered the d legs. He declined and said soz then traded again and instead it was red d hide legs (it was all in note form btw). My friend accepted and had got scammed outta his full guthix. Now he's quitting.

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....

Then he goes to his group of ppl and we go to the black knights castle

 

 

 

We kill some noobs and then he asks where im from. i said the u.s

 

 

 

Afterwards i kinda trusted him and we went deep.

: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...

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.
