    Helpfull hint to not get banned on VMK

    Ok i'm back with more HELPFULL items that might effect you on vmk

    today, i was reporting someone for about scamming me and this is what they said:


    Edit: i shrunk it

    I think this was an accident or something but why did they do this?


    Here is the story of the scam:

    I went to a trade room and someone ( NAME TAKEN OUT ) said " Trading Inferno!" so i traded. well she said ok first you trade the items and i will go get it. and i hesitated ( glad i did) and i didnt think she had it on in the beginging anyway.. so i said i will brb i have to check something, i did. she never even had it on! so i said i will have to report you for about scamming me. and thats when i got that message apperantly.

    ya it kind of confused me at first. But really, is it the computer or the ppl giving this information? if its the computerized program then it should be something else like with PPL? i mean scamming is against vmk values but yet it says its going to ban me? it makes no sence to me at all..

    It did that to me today too! I reported someone that said I go on vmk because my parents dont care about me... then he called me mental and some other things.

    Pretty sure they have automated replies, so it's quite possible they sent the wrong one.

    I know why. it is really a report for no reason, because they are not responsible for your Items and cannot get them back, therefore they can't really do anything to help. and people who listen to the scammers, it's there problem. not the Staff.

    Hope i stated the question

    P.S: Yes Scamming is against VMK Values, but as said, it's your fault you listened and Staff cannot help to get the items back, so the report really was as faultey.
    VMK was a good memory, won't be forgotten. But just because a games gone does not mean I am

    But, shouldn't the reason to report be so that the scammer doesn't continue in the future, and get punished for doing something against vmk values?

    My thoughts are that it is an automated response. Probably not so people just keep reporting people left and right. More an empty threat than anything else, but something to keep people in check.
