Exclamation New Scamming Rules

Scamming is now Illegal on Era. However, this does not mean you now have full protection over your items. There are certain rules and guidelines which I am about to explain.

All GP’s are now allowed to watch any sort of trade at the request of a player. The GP will be there to make sure the Items/Money are transferred safely to the respective player involved in the trade agreement. It is the player’s responsibility to make sure all the specifics of the trade are made clear to the GP before it takes place. If either one of the players involved disobeys the prearranged trade agreement and attempts to “scam” the other player he/she will be punished accordingly, and the GP will take control of the Item trade himself.

It is VERY important that if you are involved in a drop trade, and you are unsure of the other person, you PM a GP to come watch. Otherwise if you give someone your gun, we have no way to prove he scammed you and that you didn’t simply give it to him and suddenly regret it. It is their word against yours. However, if we can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the scam DID occur, your items will more than likely be restored.

If you follow these guidelines, then there is a very low possibility of you being scammed anytime soon under normal circumstances. If a GP is not online at the time of a trade, please be patient and wait for one to log on. If you get scammed because you were in to much of a hurry to get a GP to come supervise, then that is your own fault. There is no guarantee that your items will be restored. All GP’s reserve the right to refuse a case based on their own discretion

Along with these new scamming rules, comes new rules regarding Cross Server Trading. It is once again Illegal to Cross Server Trade on Era. Any player caught advertising it in mass messages or on client will be punished.

Any GP showing favoritism or allows a scam to take place should be reported to Chris Vimes.

I would like to stress how important it is that if you are involved in a lending trade that you notify a GP before trading.

If you are scammed because you did not get a GP to monitor a lending trade, there is no proof that you did not just give the item away, cross server trade, or even USD, and we cannot simply take your word for it. If no GPs are online or available at the time, be patient!

This has been a big problem recently, so please wait for a GP before lending any items to friends. If you fail to follow this simple rule, we cannot guarantee the return of your items.

This still stands:

Also, please remember to use the secure trading methods provided for you (the trade window). If someone is trying to get you to drop trade, odds are that it is a scam, and you should notify a GP. If you are feeling even the slightest bit suspicious of a trade, it's probably for a reason.
