There is a scammer on the loose that actually has some really nice items and can show credits in kiosk. The item I lost will not be missed and I am ok with it. My own stupidity for trusting lol Oh well But upon writing a letter to the black hole I thought I would share with others ( All names have been removed but feel free to ask in messages Also the photo sent to contact did not have an edit to the names as u will see )
Please read I know I wont get my item back (would be nice but not expected) but clearly something needs to be done to this kid and staff need to take a stand on players who steal and stop letting them get away with it.

I was approached in a trade room by ( name removed ) who offered me credits via kiosk for some pins I had. My friend and I followed this kid to his room. When we got to his room he decided he only wanted one of the pins. I told him I was writting down his title in case he decided to trick me and informed him I would report him. I checked his kiosk for the correct amount of credits before the trade. I asked him in the room about the trade "Five grand for a turkey leg pin" he answered yes. Please see photo in link for my proof.
I gave him the pin in trade and when we exited trade he boot me and then boot friend (seen in photo as (name reomoved) ).
I went to one of ( name removed ) rooms and informed him if he did not return the pin he would be reported and I had taken a screen photo. He proceded to boot me again from his room and not return the stolen item. I reported him in game so that he would not be able to scam anyone else. The reply I got back from staff was
" help button is only for emergencies " and some other stuff.
The problem I had was this; This kid was allowed to stay in game trading and scamming others. Nothing was done to stop him in his tracks. I did my best to report a player who was clearly breaking the rules and staff chose to do nothing. Luckly I am an adult and not some kid that was crying in their room because of a stolen item. I know staff have the ability to check a trade and see what happened. They also have the ability to check the chat log to see what was said. Why was this person allowed to continue stealing from others? I watched him go in and out of rooms for well over an hour trading and offering. I did my best to inform others to only trade for actual items and not to trust him to trade credits. But why should a parent have to go and follow a person around to protect others from him stealing when staff had the ability to stop him? I am sadly disappionted in how a disney run site chooses to treat their guests. Clearly this is not what Yavn wanted when he created VMK and clearly staff need to take a tougher stand on stealing in game. Kids in this game work very hard for their items and to have them stolen and see staff do nothing is just wrong. You know it and I know it. To a kid it is the equivilant of having someone hit them in the face, tell a parent about it, and watch the parent walk away while they see the kid abuse others. They feel abondoned and helpless even when there is adults there who are supposed to be protecting them.
Ok stepping off my soap box lol See you all tomorrow for some pirates
