Hello all, Dan here. This scammer was caught while we were giving out items for our Christmas Drive. bladersdust12 was advertising that if you gifted them a rare they would give you something in return ("Gift Me A Rare And Get Something, Merry Christmas! :D"). I took the time to deal with them while the other agents were giving out items.


This is a textbook example of the giftswap scam, which is a scam because it entails trading items without using the trading system. Funnily enough, right before I started to question bladers, they had this to say ("Anyone think I'm scamming?").


Not suspicious at all. I asked them why they couldn't just use the trading system, and their lovely excuse was that their game was lagging and it was too tedious ("The lag, and it's to tedious").


I'd argue that this isn't a valid excuse, considering gifting can be just as laggy as trading depending on how many items are in your inventory, and that it's even more tedious than trading considering all the extra menus you have to go through. At the end of the day, there is no excuse for not using the trading system anyway.
I told them this, and they decided to ignore me instead. They went on to brag about how they gifted people items already, somehow believing that automatically deemed them innocent ("I just gifted to ppl a feathered mask and a mystic spike :P").


I continued to question them and opted to cover their speech bubble with the good ol' "SCAMMER SCAMMER SCAMMER" spam to try and get their attention. Their only response to this was simply "i'm not a scammer, i'm gifting people" before they went right back to ignoring me again.
After a little bit of unwarranted and less than appropriate help from some of our rookies (who we will talk to about), some other people grouped up and started to tell us to leave bladers alone because apparently they weren't breaking the rules. We went back and forth for a bit before bladers gave up and left.
Report them for scamming.

Verdict: Attempted Scamming
