I was having a laugh with my friends untill someone started whispering me about my kiwi... Here are the logs

Note: The scammer is Smirn0ff and Takeela



[ Smirn0ff whispers, "can i buy ur kiwi digo?" to you. ]
[ You whisper "How much?" to Smirn0ff. ]
[ Smirn0ff whispers, "this alt, it has 2 yr kitters, and my other alt that has 1 yr ferain wolf, 2yr butter and 2 yr bats" to you. ]
[ You whisper "Do you have spaces?" to Smirn0ff. ]
[ Smirn0ff whispers, "ya, 3 of them" to you. ]
[ You whisper "How many spaces would u give?" to Smirn0ff. ]
[ Smirn0ff whispers, "they arnt tradable yet, they still have 10 more days" to you. ]
[ You whisper "Do you have GD?" to Smirn0ff. ]
[ You whisper "cuz i need spaces lol" to Smirn0ff. ]
[ Smirn0ff whispers, "i have 7gd's" to you. ]
[ Smirn0ff whispers, "i could give u this alt that has the 3 spaces" to you. ]
[ You whisper "sure" to Smirn0ff. ]
[ Smirn0ff whispers, "k, can u meet my alt takeela in Mao City?" to you. ]
[ You whisper "who would i trade the kiwi too?" to Smirn0ff. ]
[ Smirn0ff whispers, "my alt Takeela" to you. ]
[ You whisper "just summon me" to Smirn0ff. ]

She then summon me to a strange dream

[ You whisper "erm, where r u lol" to Smirn0ff. ]
You say, "lmao"
You say, "o-o"
Takeela: can u gift me it?
Takeela: brb
You say, "I would rather do a secure trade, to make sure i will get the alt."
Takeela: how do i do that?
You say, "I dunno lmao"
You say, "But i know there is one i think"
Takeela: u cant do a secure trade with an alt
You say, "You can."
Takeela: smirnoff is my alt
You say, "k"
You say, "Would you give the alt first? then i give the kiwi? or no."
Takeela: srry no, i would, but i jsut got scammed 3 days ago
You say, "k i understand"
You say, "How do i know you will give me the alt after trading?"
Takeela: i have a big rep on these alts
Takeela: i wouldnt risk losing the rep
You say, "I dunno, because there are alot of scammers at the moment"
Takeela: ya, i know, im not one of them lol
Beat thinks
You say, "Who am i trading the kiwi to?"
Smirn0ff: me
You say, "can you trade me so i can see the spaces?"
Smirn0ff: wat do u mean?
Smirn0ff: i cant do a trade, cuz they r untradable for 10 days
Smirn0ff: it will say it is unable to do it
You say, "oh i see"
Smirn0ff: can u give me the kiwi, i will give u alt info, and so on
You say, "How do i know you will."
You say, "Iv been scammed before and its not nice. I would be pissed if you did."

After people walked in to the room she started whispering me

[ Smirn0ff whispers, "lol, i wouldnt" to you. ]
[ You whisper "You dont have to whisper lol im in front of you." to Smirn0ff. ]
You say, "Can i bring friends to make sure this is a safe trade?"
[ Smirn0ff whispers, "ya, but i g2g in like 3 mins...." to you. ]
[ You whisper "Im sry but its sounding like you wanna scam me. If you wasnt you would have said yes." to Smirn0ff. ]


I was just wondering is there a secure trading thing? cuz iv never done it

you cannot secure trade with an alt.
although you did the correct thing by asking for the alt first.

Kind of if the spaces were trans there would be. It's just 'trade-start namehere' I think.

Takeela/etc has already been banned from Furcadia.

I am a bit at a loss why some people engage in very risky trades that really don't seem kosher. Like one of Takeela's three victims didn't stop to think when she offered 7 GC, 2-years butters and 2-years bats for a Kitterwing with less than a year left, and then went first. They said that trade seemed fair.

What was posted here falls in the same category. How could such an offer possibly not be a scam? :/

agreed. after reading that, the instant, 'scam' flag went off. that would have tipped me right off the bat.

spaces only have a seven day transfer limit. she was obviously trying to scam. and her giddy attitude was another. sorry. good thing you didn't trade. woulda been fucked outta kiwi which you cant buy again.

i saw the scam right away. lmao. no one who isnt trying to jerk someone would say spaces have a 10 transfer limit. hahaha

but i think beatie caught it anyway. a lot of people actually would have been taken by such a crappy scam. not everyone is that bright rofl.

btw: I CIRO! <333

*nods* Well, you would have gotten the kiwi back, at least this time, but I was really surprised when I learned today that Takeela succeeded three times simply by offering an unrealistic amount of stuff for an item that she could have gotten for just one pair of wings.

This same player scammed before under the name of Kinked. Some here might remember the person. Their suspension had worn off yesterday. :) I won't repeat that mistake.

This should have set off a red flag.

[ Smirn0ff whispers, "they arnt tradable yet, they still have 10 more days" to you. ]

Spaces only take 7 days.

It's is currently not possible to use secure trade to transfer ownership of an alt. That's what was attempting to be said by you cannot secure trade with an alt.
