Angry Unanswered: Scammers

Today a new member on babv got scammed by another member of babv. I had just looked in the new members inventory and they had a new holly moose bow. Then another user asked them if they wanted to trade. I waited until they finished the trade because I wanted to see what she traded the bow for.. when I looked in there inventory all they had was 50 more BB then they had before...thats not fair at all is it! The scammer then left and I didn't have time to report them! I told the new member who got scammed that it wasnt a fair trade, or something like that and they did a sad face..It was really sad!! I felt so bad for the new member! I gave them my holly bow. Is there anything that we can do to stop scammers??
I sent this message to Maxine because its an issue that needs to be fixed! Dont you agree??

That's Horrible!
Just Because They Are New Doesn't Mean You Should Scam Them For A Cool Prize,I've Seen This MANY Times!
The Scammer Probably Got The Loot And Ran Off

I know! The new users don't know whats a fair trade so people always scam them. It's not right.
