I know, that happens a lot but its better to say no than to risk an item being stolen.
Also, sometimes people ask you to be their friend and right after they ask fur a trade it is reallly annoying and gives the idea that they think that by being your friend you will give them free items.

I lost my megaphone, my pompoms and my messenger bag in a scam. I got a little distracted during the trade and ended up losing those items for nothing in return. Then the other person refused to acknowledge me trying to get them back and soon took off. I tried to "friend" her so that I could find her again later, but to no avail. I did report her for unfair trading, but I don't know if anything will come of that complaint.

In my trades I dialog with the trading partner to see if they think the trading is fair.

Sometimes trading partners will try to sneak in the Bear Bills, too, but I'm onto that one.

I've been scammed at least once. It was about four months ago, and I traded with a girl, not saying any names, and she told me to "Put down what you want to trade I will put down what I want to trade". I was ****** so I put down a few items, (worth about 600 BB) and put down fifty for her, so she would put down something. But she just took it and ran! My mom told me they got me money, and I was happy they acknowledged my report.

Yep. these are all true. Kinda not related but I have had people quit trading when they don't get what they want.

I was just scammed. A girl asked me to trade and said "I have a disco room. I will give you a invite. Don't you want a disco dress?"

I asked her what if she was lying (i'm not that dumb lol)

And she said "I will give you this" And showed me a red Bear Boutique dress.

Sooooo, I (******ly) gave her a purple boa, Bear Boutique tights, and a Pumpkin hat.

She took it.

I went to her house.

NO PARTY ROOM!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, beware.

No matter HOW trusting they seem, they aren't.
