Scammer Warning for Gacha Sellers…

etincelerbyarella:

To those selling the new Arcade sets: Half-Deer (Forest’s Tale), Yummy, and ISPACHI. There’s an organized group of people going around trying to get free items and lindens from sellers, especially those that use scripted boxes or sell on marketplace. They often contact you without any purchase record in hand, complaining that they purchased a certain item and another was delivered to them. These items are almost always: Half-Deer’s Flower Crown, Yummy’s Queen ring, or ISPACHI’s Chair. They will demand a refund and prompt delivery of the correct item, and refuse exchanges. Marketplace sellers find themselves threatened with 1-star reviews to bring their business down, and in-world sellers are threatened with the customer going into groups/chats to put them on blast for “scamming them”.

If you give in to these people and give them what they want, your name is recorded and you’re harassed constantly for an undetermined amount of time, each time with a different account having the exact same complaint. If you are unwilling to give them anything else, they begin to threaten to hack you or find out where you live. It seems ridiculous that they would do this over gacha items of all things, but they are, and we currently know of eighteen different sellers dealing with this. These sellers are receiving 10 - 30 threats/complaints/scammer messages a day trying to get more out of them, and the accounts seem to be different for everyone.

IF ONE OF THESE PEOPLE CONTACTS YOU, insist on a transaction record first. If they can’t produce one, block instantly. If they can, offer an item exchange for what they wanted, and do not give in to their demands for refunds or “compensation”, no matter how pathetic they at, or how threatened you feel. Block them instantly if they refuse. If they accept the switch, make sure they send you the item first, make the switch, and say goodbye. Do not give them an inch.

Keep vigilant, everyone!
