    Do they post a lot here? I don't recognize any of those names as anyone I'd trust or even know/heard about.

    I do not think you get what Kylie is saying, Nemesis has not been on these forums in ten years and Symantec in five. Not sure why you would trust someone who hasn't posted in that many years.

    Agreed. To me there are only a few reasons why someone would stop posting here.

    1- Stopped playing UO
    2- Found Stratics lacking (just stating possible reasons lol)
    3- Got banned from Stratics
    4- The rares community stopped dealing with them because of bad or scamming tendencies

    Or that's about all the reasons I can think of...

    1- Stopped playing UO - Could have sold his account aswell

    Most scammers if people notice, use other peoples names its a huge flaw in Ultima Online, thats why everyone should be part of a guild with unique tags, to avoid issues like that aswell, not saying this happened to you like that, but its a major issue that still plagues this game and its community of players.

    It is possible the guy could have sold his account or another player has hi-jacked his names.. without any real evidence on the situation no one can really judge what exactly went down on this situation, just assume.

    Knowing the guy hasnt logged into this website in years would surely lead me to assume it either wasnt him, or what Kylie has listed off.

    Sorry you got scammed, it happens alot on UO.

    The users Nemesis and Symantec were not the same person. They didn't even live in the same country!
    Neither name is particularly distinctive and, as all know, names in UO are not unique.
    A simple members search on Stratics for 'Nemesis' gives you:
    Nemesis
    Nemesis -GL
    NeMeSiS1004
    Nemesis1974
    nEmEsIs230
    nemesiscd
    NemesisDesignz
    nemesisblanc
    NemesisTcT
    Nemesis_l
    I venture to suggest that all of those posters have, or had, a character in UO named Nemesis. How would you know which, if any, of those scammed you, or if it's an entirely different 'Nemesis'? Not all who read here, and respond to sales giving an icq number, are actually registered posters.
    I will now lock this with the recommendation that if you choose to trade in the future you read and take note of the guidelines in our sticky thread.
