    REMINDER!! Do not "borrow" or let people "hold" items.

    If someone asks you to "borrow" something for awhile or they will "give it right back" DO NOT TRADE WITH THESE PEOPLE.

    There has been an increase of this for myself personally and I just don't want anyone else being scammed by these people.

    Remember, never let anyone borrow or just "hold" your items for awhile, they will probably run away and you will never see them again.

    Even if they are your VMK friends - you still never know as you don't know them personally. Unless you want to give it away - don't even think twice about it. Just walk away.

    Re: REMINDER!! Do not "borrow" or let people "hold" items.

    I gotta question, I was an avid VMK player and I left the VMK for like 2 months and when I came back all my stuff was gone. I had 3 rooms full of stuff. and pins and clothes. just an insane amount. I got back and all that was left was a skull poster and a bottle. whats up with that!?

    I reported it but I've heard nothing so far.

    No one can get your stuff without your password. Who has access?

    I left VMK for about a year but everything (which really wasn't much) was still in place.

    It's still good advice, "Neither a borrower nor a lender be".

    These friendly reminds sponsored by MiceChat gold... Cause I'm bored.

    Um, itís also best to have a different pass for forums and VMK. That way itís less likely to get hacked and have everything stolen, or loose account of forums for breaking rules you did not do.

    Also, when lending something ask for something of equal or greater value, it makes some people stop trying to take and run, also don't accept magic if they claim its more then 1 star, cause its hard to tell in trade if they tell truth.

    For the magic problem, I just tell them to show me the magic and if it looks like they are telling the truth, I trade.

    As for the "borrow" or "hold" problem, I never let anyone borrow anything. It's pathetic. Once, this girl told me to wear her extra black HM shoes so we would match and I promised to return them and I would of. She got dc or I think logged off, and I never saw her again! I don't know if she stopped playing which I doubt or she took me off her list, anyways, I didn't keep the shoes and gave them back to her when I found her in a trade room. It was actually a regret I have now although I know it was more right to return them...

    VMK should make it so you can see the stars in trades, it would be a major help!

    want to know my way of doing this? when someone asks to borrow something, make them trade you something more rare then the item your letting them borrow, so if they dont come back, you have a better item, and if they do, you trade back and get your item back, if they dont want to do this plan, then dont let them borrow anything
