Hey, guys OSRS Gold gals! Tas here, your friendly once-in-a-while RSOF lurker. In any case! Here's what I was scammed and how to stay clear of it. Although nobody I know of has heard of this scam, I put it together in my mind and want you to be careful.
Don't fall for those who charge exorbitant rates for junk with high quantities. "Need 300 steel pickaxes! I'll buy them at 10 dollars each!" The above happened to ge. I owned several steel pickaxes, and the owner purchased them for 10k each, as promised.
I was thinking too quickly to be able to concentrate and I rushed to the Ge and tried to purchase more. They didn’t buy. And they didn't buy further. Before I knew it I had raised the cost to 3k, 3k and finally 4k. This was done to secure the sale, to get the ridiculously large profit of 10k from the user. We're in need of 300 pickaxes!"
I paid a few thousand dollars for 100 to 200 pickaxes. They mysteriously cost the identical amount. When I returned to the user who was on ge and he was logged in. Take a look at what transpired. See what transpired? He announced his desperate need for pickaxes, at an amount higher than what he had sold for, and then he bought them.
The note from the GE stated that the offer was over, and the employee logged out. The account was full of gibberish for the name, like I said, so I imagine the funds are going to be switched over to a main account at some time. tongue.png
So, again, BE WARY of users who post similar "OMFG must purchase naooo" messages, especially when they need a high quantity of an item that you'd truly normally would not purchase. There is a chance that you will be the only one in the GE feeling a bit lost and isolated. Cheers!
It's been two months since we launched the Squeal of Fortune. Now, we want to answer some of your questions, correct some myths, provide motivations for the new update and, perhaps most important explain why it's Old School RuneScape Gold to stay.
