Types of Scams

Trust Trading - Trust trading is when someone puts a bad item on trade and wants you to trade a really good item for their bad item and expect them not to accept it. This is almost always a scam, and the only way to avoid it is to not trust trade. Anyone who trust trades has full right to be called out as a scammer. However, some people hack or download stuff to get auto-accept, a tool that automatically accepts trust trades.

Flash Trading - Flash trading is pretty much the exact same thing as trust trading, only really fast. You would trust trade, but the point of it is to decline really fast so that the person you're flashing doesn't accept. Doing it gives you a lower chance of being scammed, but doesn't guarantee you won't. Be aware, auto-accept is also used in flash trading. Anyone who tells you to flash trade for 1 or more seconds is trying to scam you, because let's admit it, 1+ seconds isn't fast.
As of January 7th, 2016,  this scam is no longer possible. Thanks AJHQ!

Best Trade Wins - The best trade wins scam is often used during giveaways. It is followed by the name of an item. For example, "best trade wins spike". In some cases, the word "trade" is replaced by trust. During giveaways, the scammer might say "no flash" so that it will be easier for them to accept. This is similar to the "best gift wins" scam. Some scammers may say it is the best declined trade (though that is no longer a possible scam due to the January 2016 trading update), but the most common form is "best trade that I accept".

Gift Swapping - This scam is when someone asks you to gift them an item and that they will gift an item in return. There is no excuse for this scam, but the most common one used is "my trade is broken". This is NEVER TRUE! When your trading gets taken away, your gifting does as well. Even if their trading was taken away, they can wait. Don't trust anyone who refuses to use the trading system.

Decline All Trades - This scam is when someone puts a bad item on trade and tells you they won't accept any trade. It's similar to the original form of the trust trade. This scam is fairly common, and the main flaw with it is that if you're just going to decline, what is the point in trading?

Make Me Accept - This is pretty much the same as the "best trade wins" scam, but said slightly different. This is when somebody says something along the lines of "trade me, if I accept you get my outfit". This is a scam, because if you're going to give away your outfit, why would we need to trade you?

First Trade Wins - This scam is when somebody says something along the lines of "first person to trade me ___ wins ___". This scam is very similar to the "best trade wins" scam, but it's still different.

Just Borrowing It  - This scam is when somebody, usuaully a friend, asks if they can try on or borrow your item and promises to give it back. Never trust ANYONE who asks to try on your items, even if they're your best friend. Instead, just tell them to go try it on at Best Dressed, or better yet, offer to help them get it themselves.

Famous Jammer - This scam happens when someone makes a new account and claims that they are a famous Jammer, and claims their main account got suspended and they want you to trade them.  If you see anyone doing this scam, don't trade them. Even if they are actually who they claim to be, they're breaking the rules by making an extra account to evade a ban and don't deserve a reward for doing so.
This scam can also happen when someone dresses up like a famous Jammer, hides their nametag, and claims they're famous Jammers. If you see anyone doing this, then search up the original famous Jammer's username on the buddy search and see if they appear as online. If they don't, the person is faking.

    1. I wish I knew your username for animal jam, I would report you for inappropriate language. God is real, he chose prophets to spread His word. And He also told Mary that she was going to conceive a son, and that she was to name Him Jesus, He was going to be the example for other people, and he is the one that died on the cross for us. He took all of ours sins, and got separated from God the Father for the first time in his life. He went to hell and made it so that we don't have to go to hell and burn eternally, we can go to heaven, but only if we choose God to be the Lord of our life. Jesus then went up to Heaven and got cleansed by God. God says never to use his name in vain, don't disappoint Him by saying that evil phrase. I hope you fully understand now, please go to church, and go deeper into God's word than ever before. :)

    2. Can you maybe calm down? God isn't a swear word, and you can't get punished on Animal Jam for something you said on a website that's not Animal Jam. Plus, not everybody is interested in your religion, so you don't have to try and push your lifestyle onto them.

      Delete
    3. Sorry to say this but they are following the Bible. The Bible says to spread the word of God and so they are correct in saying everything they said.

      Delete
    4. That's cool and all, but not everyone is interested in the concept. Especially when you bring it up as an interjection in a conversation where religion has barely even been mentioned. It's one of the easiest ways to make a situation extremely awkward and alien.

    1. Once I just happened to go to my buddies den while she was doing a give away. No one trusted her because it looked just like a best trade wins scam, so they all left, and when I started to suggest a way to do a give away without people saying she was a scammer she unbuddied me and locked her den. I guess it was a scam then, but I know for a fact that she did have the item she was doing a give away of.
      A type of scam left out of this page though is the doubling party scam. Once my sis went to one and instantly knew it was a scam because the jammer was only accepting betas, spikes, flower crowns etc. The other jammers who came said they were recording and the jammer doing the party locked the den and kicked everyone out. I would say Doubling Parties should be on the list.

I don't believe that my comment is "hurting other people", considering it was said to one person and 2 years have passed since it was made. There was a misunderstanding and I got a little aggressive, but that's in the past now and dwelling on it isn't going to fix or change anything.

    5. It wasn't a waste of time at all; I enjoy reading stories of Jammers deciding to take a stand.
      I quit AJ last month for a few reasons; I was fed up with AJHQ and how they were running the game, and the fact that they were being money hogs instead of moderating their players. I was fed up with the fact you couldn't go 5 steps without being insulted or bullied, for being "unrare", being a nonmember, or simply having an "ugly animal". I was fed up with how much the game had changed from being set in a theme where you can literally "play wild" and wear wild-themed items, but now, it's full of headphones, laptops, and a lot of modern stuff.
      Plus, I had decided I had done my part and left my mark in the scam catching industry, and I decided to leave the next generation of scam catchers (if AJ doesn't get shut down by then) to keep on fighting the good fight.
      However, I'd still be happy to talk to you.
      I'm sorry if I wasted your time with this stoey :P

    6. well I can definitely tell you that in 2017 July 17 Animal Jam is still standing strong! I know that animal jams scamming problems have gotten worse over the times, but there are things we can do about that! start a club, do a no scamming chant. There's a lot of things that COULD be done, but most of us are just to afraid to take a stand. Stand strong with me as animal jam has stood strong for good jammers everywhere.

    2. There's also one that goes like this:
      So someone is hosting a so called giveaway and they have a backup account with them. They tell everyone to trust trade and then the backup trades a really bad item for the necklace on the main account's trade. Then they make the backup say, "OMG I TRADED A HEADDRESS AND THEY DECLINED!!!" to get Other People to trade their good items.

  20. Please don't forget the hackers! They take over member accounts, steal items, and lock you out of your account and customer service won't do anything to help and will punish your child for the hacker's actions by suspending the account even when in the middle of an email exchange about the hack.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 99% of "hackers" are just sly 13-year-olds who figure out weak passwords or pressure other players into sharing theirs. Real hacking is a serious legal offense in many places and can even get you jail time, which, for the few 13-year-olds who happen to know how to hack through 256-bit AES, is way too much of a risk with way too little payoff. And the rare hacking episodes in the past were targeted to AJ YouTubers, so unless you're really well known in the community, you don't have too much to worry about. Keep your passwords strong, change them as often as possible, and tell no one what they are, no matter what.

  21. Most likely, the notion of "auto accept" is a scare tactic, used to deter people from flash trading. But there isn't a shred of evidence that such a thing exists (at least outside of the Deep Web). I'm not saying that flash or trust trading is good or safe, but please, for the sake of staying reliable, don't put things on here unless they're confirmed and you can provide proof.

    ReplyDelete
  22. There is a new scam I found a couple days ago. Basically the scammer goes on a backup, puts a super beta/wanted item on the backup's trade, and dances in the township saying something like: "MY TRADE FOR ( inserts rare item monday)!" Then, the scammer goes on their main account and puts the rare item monday the backup wants on trade. The scammer doesn't accept anything bad until they get like a spike or den beta for the rare item monday. Then, they leave. The scam is designed to make people panic and want to overload trade for the RIM so they can get the scammer's backup's super beta item.
    It's kinda confusing, but I witnessed a gal being scammed of her short orange wrist.

    2. It is almost always the scammee's fault for being scammed, but victim blaming is not the correct way to portray this. Most of the people who get scammed are young, irresponsible children who genuinely don't know any better. Even though it is their responsibility, you shouldn't tell a sad, confused child that it's their fault something bad happened to them.

They buy about 20 of that item and layer them on top of each other, this is a glitch, making it have black in the background of the object. Then they'll invite ppl to their den saying "GLITCHED CHAIR MY DEN! IS SECRET RARE!" and people will go there ad then trade their best rare for just a regular chair.

    The im poor scam writes itself, the double scam is a complicated trick used by yourself and an accomplice one person starts with an innocent trade using something you rlly want but they want something you dont have so right around then another person comes and has that exact item you need but they want the most excpensive item on your list this is a play on the "to good to be true" saying, and is usually done between a member with lots of stuff but is just greedy and a 'nonmember' THE WANT IT NEED IS SCAM, a rich jammer walks up to a plaace with plenty people and says that theres a new fad goin round and that thers a cretain item that became super rare recently, DONT BELIVE IT!

  44. I got tricked with the gifting thing. I had just gotten my membership, and I was hanging out at some random jammer's den. I asked them if they wanted to trade for their super cool giant fancy black wolf plushie, and they said they couldn't trade so we did gifting. I gifted them an item from the Schoolhouse Party, and they gifted me a bronze Marco statue, which I already had. I gifted it back, thinking that they must have missclicked and saying I already had it. They swiftly logged out. So basically I just gifted them an item. You can't get that item anymore, so that makes it more heartbreaking.

    You forgot the "Double Item" scam
    On this scam, someone has a person (it is the helper) that trades a bad thing for the person's good item, but then it doubles (the person asks you to see this person's trade list, and it will have a double item) and then the scammer says to you trade ur good item for the scammer's bad item, but if you are on the den of the scammer, he will lock his den, if you are on another place, it leaves.

    I'm a bit curious, though. How did AJHQ prevent the trusting trades now?

    1. AJ did a big chat filter overhaul so that "flash trade", "trust trade", and all variations would get you instantly suspended.

    2. That's pretty cool. Even flashlight?
      AJHQ's moderation is, honestly, getting better. It's no longer as annoying as it used to be in my opinion.

  50. Does anyone count it as a scam if someone has an extremely valuable item like a headdress or a founders or a glitched ring and doesn't realize how rare the item is and trades it for a very painfully terrible under trade then immediately finds out they are never going to get that item back? I have heard of this happening before, and wondered how many people think that the person who lost an item with such a value should at least get a few items from ajhq to make up for their loss.

    1. Simply being oblivious and trading away your item for something it's not worth isn't a scam, it's just making a poor decision. By definition, however, it would be a scam if the person you're trading it to claims it's not worth as much as it is and thus tries to trick you into trading it for something really bad.

  51. If you can, add masterpiece scam? I was at one, a person offered a giveaway but said to buddy her and like both of her masters first, and after that she locked her den.

    1. That's not really a scam, as the "victim" isn't losing anything. Likes on a masterpiece really aren't worth anything.

  55. I think you should add "free membership giveaway my den!'' scam, as i just caught one of these. the user for the scammer is Awesomecoolkawaii

  56. I think, that you should add
    ,,Trust trading 2"
    Its like someone has 3 accounts. (main, spare, spare)
    He transfers good items (Ex. Headdress) To one of spare.
    He transfers other good items (ex. spikes) to the other.
    He host a giveaway, with the headdress spare (the scam one)
    He will come also with the other as a random person.
    When people will come, he will ask them to buddy him. He locks den and wants people to trade good items for his bad. He uses the spare, to make people trade better and better. Then he trades a spike from spare, and returns. The spare will be :,,OMG, they returned, you can trust them!. Then other people will do spikes and get scammed. He will lock EVERYONE out. He will KEEP pretending, that the spare is still not him. He will also lock the spare.

    1. That isn't really a scam on its own, more so a component. It's not uncommon for scammers to use backups to try and make themselves appear more trustworthy. But we probably will add it, thank you for the idea.

  57. Don't forget the "Trade/Gift me, I'm recording"

    1. that's not a scam. they're promising you virtually nothing in return and therefore it's your own fault if you gift them and they turn out to be a phony.

  60. I've seen this set up before, but not sure if it actually was a scam.
    So let's say you have "a", which is worth 40-60 den betas. Someone offers "a" for only 40 den betas, but they tell you to trade first - maybe just 10 den betas "in case" you leave with "a" before all trades are done. When you are done with your portion of the trade, they will then leave, and not give "a" at all.

  61. you forgot the: scammer that pretends something bad happened to them so people give them stuff

    1. That isn't listed as a scam since there's no way of proving or disproving whether that actually happened to the person. Begging itself isn't really scamming, since they aren't promising anything in return, they're just trying to tug at your heartstrings.

  62. Here is another common scam. Two jammers are working together (or two jammers on the same device) and one jammer has a rare item on trade and says they want a bad item for it (ex, jammer has a red long. Wants an eyeball hat for it). The second jammer is then advertising the item the other jammer wants, and they usually decline fair trades for it. Judging by the fact that you are technically trading for a red long since the jammer wants that eyeball hat for it, you will end up overtrading. Then, when you try to trade for the red long, the jammer declines and leaves.

  63. I have a possible scam. One person puts store bought on trade and says it is glitched. People who are new don't know if it is glitched and don't know what is rare or not. They trade a good item for it but all they got was a store bought item. The person may be truthful but who knows.
