    Well Stratics stance is:

    C. Scammer Accusations
    When you get scammed, often your first reaction is to warn others so that it doesn't happen to them too. Although you have good intentions, we ask that you do not post anything about who scammed you as these accusations are really just one posters word against another. UO allows for many chars on the same shard to have the same name, so you could inadvertently spoil an honest persons reputation. Or someone could post that someone they disliked was a scammer and ruin their reputation when it is not true.

    Personally i say post users contact info IE: icq#/aim# ,however u guys spoke to arrange trade since that would be unique to that user and not based on stratics multi-name. Some trade sites do have a scammer list (not sure i can even list site with Stratics regulations) but at this time Stratics doesn't post scammer lists. But since I dont make the rules I would follow section C above

    Sorry to hear about your bad trade . . . been there done that
  3. 1. Chalk it up. It has happened to all of us who trade sooner or later.

    2. Add fool to your contact device but make sure to name them a NO_NO and every trading option when said fool posts, feel free to pop in a little "Dont do it" for all to see.

    3. Option 3 is go for it.....stratics will either let it be or delete it, and youll have the answer....one way or the other!!
