Some players will promise you they will give you the item after a few minutes, since they have to switch account or something. Do not believe them. Only give them your money when they can give you the items right away, or else they can wait for their money also. As soon as you give someone the money first before you get your items you run a very high risk of being scammed.

In MMORPG games, there are many people who try to get ahead by dishonest means, cheating and stealing from other players. This article aims to arm you with enough knowledge to avoid the well known scams. Be aware of them!

The main article contains hard and fast ways you should act and things you should know to avoid being scammed. See the separate sub-articles for in-depth explanations and less common scams.


Trust

Do not ever trust anyone with high value items! (Eg: astral boards/bikes, EoG/F/S +7/6), most of times people become your friends and when they think that you trust them, they will ask for such items like the ones mentioned in the example. We recommend that you trust only in your family members or people that you know personally, because in such games has Cabal people never are what they look like.

Items level scams

Always make sure when trading items with levels (Eg: Flame Discs lvl3), make sure you check the item level due to the huge amount of people that buy discs lvl 1 because the seller said that they were level 3/2...

Don't wait for an item

Some players will promise you they will give you the item after a few minutes, since they have to switch account or something. Do not believe them. Only give them your money when they can give you the items right away, or else they can wait for their money also. As soon as you give someone the money first before you get your items you run a very high risk of being scammed.
