In addition with the scams flooding the public offers, legitimate offers are getting overlooked. So the public offers are not benefiting anyone.

 

In theory the idea is a good one, but people are abusing it and taking advantage of others.

Usually I'd say you have to be pretty stupid to fall for this, but it's not fair to say that when the wording is so vague. Would be better if in place of terms such as 'Offered' and 'Giving' there were phrases such as '[name] has offered' and 'You are giving', to get rid of some of the confusion.

 

 

 

But it's a general rule that if there's an open free market, there will be people trying their hardest to take advantage of it. Rule of life. The only real way to stop the attempted scams would be to have someone personally moderating the public trades, and even then it would be unfair to use that power just to remove trade offers by beggars and newbies.

1. Yes there is scammers out there, there is in every OTCG.

 

2. It's your responsability to make sure you understand what you are doing. If you think its too good to be true it probably is. No one can be held responsable for your mistakes other than yourself.

 

 

 

Just think of it like this:

 

Offered to ME.

 

Giving to THEM.

Sometimes it isn't even that, you click the offer and if it lags even a little and you click again, the accept button is right there so you could easily accept without even trying.

I think they should keep public trades but make it so that you can't make a trade without offering something yourself. That way, you could make a free trade if you wanted to be generous, but you couldn't just ask for something for free unless the first you're receiving it from initiates the trade.

Do they have moderators online, watching what people ask for in trades?

We need to have a report button (like we do here in the forums) on the trade screen.

Hello Trainers,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We ceratinly appreciate your concern regarding unfair or misleading trades, and take your reports very seriously. All reports are fully investigated and we always take the appropriate action as necessary. We do need all reports to be made via the support portal, as the forums are not the appropriate place to discuss such matters. I am going to close this thread in order to prevent the possibility of any further reports popping up here, and I hope that if you have any issues or problems with trade you contact us immediately.

 

 

 

Best,

 

 

 

Prof_Light
