I have read the rules of the forums while in a complete rage over being scammed when buying an account that was listed here on the trade forums. I figured that buying from here would atleast give some sort of guarantee or protection. The rules clearly give protection... to the scammer. You see... we are NOT allowed to post their name as being a scammer because it may tarnish the reputation of someone that has the same character name. So... these scum... low life... criminals... thieves... will continue to pray on us all honest and trustworthy gamers without consequence. So... to those that are thinking of buying an account from the forums I offer you this suggestion. UO offers a premium account transfer service. Link provided... http://www.uoherald.com/acct_mgmt.php It may cost $30.00 in cold hard earned cash but it will do several things for you. 1) You will be certain not to get scammed by some low life. 2) It will erase any marks against the account (afterall... you have no idea what they have done with the account.) 3) The seller pays no added fee for this service... only the buyer does. So if they are unwilling to use this service, then it is a good chance you are dealing with scum. I myself should have taken my own advise. Had I read the forum rules before buying the account for 115 Million gold I would have never made the trade. So.. to those that have asked... did you turn him in? There is no consequence to them and no protection to you in doing your business here on the forums. I had thought this area would have been safe. LESSON LEARNED!! And I hope this helps you all have a fair and fruitful trade!! P.S. - Although I cannot post the name of the low life scammer... I can praise the first trade conducted with Corpse who was a very stand up gamer and an honest individual. It was a pleasure doing business with you sir!!
