KostOnee is a scammer

Recommended Posts

Of course it's my own fault to trust someone like in this case, just to make that clear in first place - no need to tell me ;)

I did take the risk, fully aware of it. This is not about my little loss, this is about a scammer, taking advantage of people willing to trust someone without a good reason...

 

This seems to me quite similar to the thread tehfreshhkid is scammer, and both chars started and stopped their postings on channel 3 about the same time. I talked to tehfreshhkid as well, posted in that thread, and I guess it's one and the same person.

[22:17:28] [KostOnee @ 3]: I just need Alchemy EXP :D

[00:55:56] [PM to KostOnee: hi, how far have you gotten by now?]

[00:56:05] [PM from KostOnee: almost done]

[00:56:24] [PM to KostOnee: cool :)]

 

That was the last time he talked to me.

Not because of being offline or afk:

 

[01:41:56] [PM to KostOnee: are you done, by chance? i have to leave soon]

[01:44:12] [KostOnee @ 3]: Selling Will removal stone

[01:46:41] [PM to KostOnee: are you done, by chance? i have to leave soon]

 

Just after tehfreshhkid tried to sell 2 Will removal stones, as posted there.

If you really think they are the same person you might want to inform a mod so they can look into any illegal multi problems. Although this tread ought to get some mod attention. Sorry about your lost gc. :(

We are not the same person :D

 

 

Do you realize it's breaking a rule using channel 3 to scam?

 

http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=28127

 

Another person breaking this rule. I think the person who was hit with this scam should now post in abuse section as you're in clear violation of game rules now.

Thank you PaulB, for looking into this.

I wasn't aware that there was a violation of the rules, since I'm no newbie in the meaning of the don't-scam-newbies-rule and took the risk of being scammed. Just forgot about this thread. Should have known and informed a mod.

Is this honestly possible?

 

Anyway... I have seen too many scams in the last few years... never pay first unless it's a friend, and even then...it's risky if it's massive amounts.

Advertising in @3 a service that is real, such as mixing essences, is allowed.

The rule is about advertising non-existent services is for things such as "I'll bless your cape, pm me" or the like.

 

This is where you use your good common sense if you have any, and don't just hand over your hard earned gc or items until you will be getting something in return that you can check as acceptable.

There is a fine line between scam and stupidity|foolishness.

If people were not greedy, and used common sense, there would be almost no scams.

 

Are you telling me that nobody then can post a real service in @3 in case it turns out to be a scam?

Unless you want all services disallowed in @3, there is no way to control who tries to scam after. That is on your head who you trust and make a deal with, and how you conduct that transaction.

EL is not responsible for you making a bad deal or not checking if it's a diamond or rosto you are buying.

 

 

We are not the same person :D

You have yet to offer me proof of this.

I better see no interaction AT ALL.

For a new player, you seem to be pulling some fairly old tricks.

I hope people don't find it too difficult to believe your change of heart, but good luck proving yourself :)

Nope, I'm gonna bot ban you, plus the rest of the elite school of scammers and bag jumpers who's guild you've very unwisely chosen to join (Hey there Pkg :))

 

Can't think why I haven't done that before, so thx for reminding me.

The only way you could have worsened the chances of people believing this 'change of hearrt' would have been to join FURY! :D
