    Beware Scammers and Cheaters

    From this weeks VMK newsletter:

    If you are tricked in a trade, please report it via Contact Us, and be sure to let us know what was taken, by whom, and how. We'll research it and take the appropriate action, up to banning the scammer and returning your stuff.

    Take heart, VMK is paying attention to our complaints. (I still won't trade unless that person is already a good friend whom I trust!)

    I had my fireworks magic taken - back when I was stupid and let someone borrow it. I reported it and got it back about a month later.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    It is sad that so many feel the need to scam people. That is why I never trade unless I know the person. It is hard to trade these days too with all the trade widndows you have to go through.

    Re: Beware Scammers and Cheaters

    So you guys all know me from posting on here for a while right. Well on another posting site, I asked if I could borrow someones bat magic for the yellow car quest, and that I would give a fireworks magic for letting me borrow it for just a few hours. Well they accused me of trying to scam and told me I might be banned.

    First of all, if I were scamming, would I really post it on a board???? Hello! If it were a scam I would find some dumb person in the game lol. I dunno. I am a more trusting person I guess, and I was offended at the acusation.

    i onlytrade if i am trading. but inever let people borrow my stuff because i know that they will scam me and i tell other people that you they shouldn't let them borrow stuff.
    If life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade. Then find someone who's life has given them vodka and have a party.

    I look at you and I see 2 men. The man you are and the man you ought to be. One day those 2 will meet and should make for one hell of a football player!

    If this is torture, chain me to the wall

    Are you there God? It's me Jesus.

    Locke and Jack are to busy worrying about Locke and Jack.

    The best kind of Prize is a surprise! Hehehe

    Good rules to follow

    I am so happy to hear this news! Of course careful trading still applies and I'll never lend anything to anyone (close friends excluded) but I am glad that they sound like they will investigate now and not actually be an unknowing part of the problem in helping scammers by banning those who get scammed because they were to lazy to properly investigate a complaint made by the scammer. If they want an online Disney community then they should start policing it properly too. They need a VMK Police force - Blue Ears! Woot! Disney rocks!

    Well that's good news. Maybe it will lessen the chance of a person who has the intent to scam to do so.
