Statistically it is well established these are scams in mmos. From what I have seen it is over half the time and additionally "safe" people often snap and take all at some point.
1. This context has no relevance. This isn't life threatening and by saying that is completely blowing this circumstance out of proportion.
It's the exact same thing. You wouldn't risk your life on a stupid decision like thinking maybe that shady dude is offering me a cheap switchblade! It's exactly the same anyone with a brain wouldn't risk all of thier stuff with some shady dude that 'does it for free'.
2. My point is that you can't have any opinion on the intentions of friendlyhoboman until he has scammed you. Call me stupid but when you put it in proportion, having friendly hm be a middleman is exactly the same risk as having your best friend do an I Owe You.
If you want to hand over all your in game possessions then so be it. Don't cry when you are scammed.
You know this guy I assume?
In my original post I said its sad that people can be so conclusive without evidence.
I didn't say I wanted to use this service either, plus your life isn't at risk, and tbh, you haven't done any research on this person, which (unless you lacked a brain) you would do in any sort of multi server trade.
I agree I would never do that inter server thing and it does sound shady (no offence fhm) but I don't post negative rude responses.
