MMORPG New Player
How the scam works:
The scam comes from experienced players targeting new ones, due to the greed of continuously improving their game. If you are a new player, you might be approached by another player, to trade items. Excited to interact with better players, you will probably agree to it.
After agreeing, the trade window pops up and you do the switch. You hit the “OK” button and you receive the new item on your inventory (eg. a sword). Due to the complexity of the MMORPG games, the experienced players take advantage of the novices by giving them used items or low quality copies.
How to avoid:
If you are new, take your time to really get to know all the details of the game first. The same scam could occur when it comes to exchanging games’ currency.
