Post Guide to not being scammed
As it is right now, we have a flow of new players comming in, and no new system to fundamentally make scamming impossible.

The traditional toss item/give money method only works if you take such precautions:

1. Never trade an item you cannot afford to loose to a player less than level 100 who has not properly identified his main character.

2. If you are significantly higher level than the person you are trading with, demand that you receive payment before tossing, no exceptions. This should give assurances to both parties, assuming no one wants there high level alt to be marked as a scammer.

3. If the person wants to pay you through a "money alt" take as many screen shots of the trade, and demand payment first.

This game does not revolve around credits at the higher level, rare items are better to keep than to sell, because one day you will probably end up using it.

If anyone has something to add ill update the original post.

Just give away your items and all your credits. They can't scam you if you have nothing!
