I Was Scammed Out of My Purchase By Them
8th of Jul, 2011 by Dick_Tracy
The item for sale was virtual currency(gold) in the game Runescape.
I purchased 165 million gold for $120 from gamegoody.com

Please keep in mind there were 4 players involved:
1. 234fremont56
2. 234fremont58
3. Ancient2921
4. abahaska

This matter is somewhat complex.
As requested by the seller, I went to Varrock East Bank on World 25 to receive the currency. Upon arriving, I met with 234fremont56(abahaska was the alternative) and received the currency. The moment I received the currency, a player named 234fremont58(cleverly named a VERY similar name) requested that I give the funds to Ancient2921and transfer to world 10. According to him(Player #2) this "new procedure" was done as an effort to prevent a Real World Trading ban.

I complied with his directions by giving the funds to Player #3 and moved to world 10. Both of them told me to wait repeatedly for several minutes. After roughly 30 minutes of waiting, both of them logged out at the same time and have not logged in since then.

My questions are this:
1. Why were two players in the same place on the same server at the same time using the same name, but one number off? A little suspicious, don't you think?

2. How did Player #2 know that Player #1 gave me the funds whenever he did? There was no way for him to know unless contacted by Player #1.
Immediately after receiving the funds, I was instructed by a player almost the same name to give the currency to someone else. There was no way for him to know to take the same name and get on at the same time and know exactly when the trade was completed to instruct me to give the funds to another player.

Their customer support was also hilarious. He immediately told me to stop lying when I mentioned that someone with the (almost) same name logged in on the same server and went to the same place at the same time and scammed me. I asked him if he thought it was a coincidence. He told me "sometime it happen". Better yet, just check out the chat:

Techno:
You have 3 people involved with me.
Techno:
Two people have VERY similar account names.
sunny:

sunny:
but i have told u
Techno:
One person actually performs the transaction, and takes the screenshot for you to see.
Techno:
The second person with the same name knows that the transaction took place.
sunny:
u r wrong
sunny:
just 2 person
sunny:
the 58 is not our guy
Techno:
You know what I am going to say because you know that it's happening. You are well aware of the fact that you are scamming people.
sunny:
u r so crazy
Techno:
Then why does he have the same name?
Techno:
Why was he in the same place, same world, at the same time, with the same name as another person?
sunny:
they r scammer
sunny:
i said
Techno:
That's a pretty colossal coincidence, don't you think?
sunny:
no
Techno:
Really?
Techno:
Two people have the same name, but are one number apart.
sunny:
sometime it happen
Techno:
That one number even LOOKS just like the number its imitating.
Techno:
And judging from your responses, you've dealt with this before because I am not the first person your organization has scammed.
Techno:
How many times have you heard of this happening?
Techno:
Be honest with me and realize that it is time for YOU to stop lying.
Techno:
Because if you can't tell the truth or get me to 56 and start translating, we're going to have to take this and my $120 payment to the next level.
sunny:
k
sunny:
u may call pp
Techno:
So what is it?
sunny:

Techno:
No, sir. It is up to you.
sunny:

Techno:
If you want to admit that your organization just scammed me, feel free to do so and I can get what I paid for.
sunny:
I say again,u say we cheat u,plz take out proof
Techno:
Or, you can take it the hard way and have ourselves an international Paypal dispute coupled with all the defamation that comes with it.
Techno:
I do not need your "proof"
Techno:
How far away are you from the person that logged in as 234fremont56?
sunny:
i said 58 is not our guy,and we said don' t give gold to any1
Techno:
56 told me to give it to him
Techno:
I want to know why.
sunny:
we want cheat u,y we tell u
sunny:
stop lyinf
Techno:
Because you want me to give you money for free so that you can get yours back
Techno:
Please, just get the actual 56 in so I may speak to him
sunny:
u want get more money from scammer 58
Techno:
I've used your services before and you guys have been great in the past.
Techno:
The only way for scammer 58 to know that I had the money in the first place was for 56 to tell him.
sunny:
58 not know 56
Techno:
Oh yes, he does.
sunny:
no
Techno:
As soon as I completed the trade, 58 instructed me to give the money to another player.
Techno:
How else would he know that I just received 165 mil?
Techno:
I love your silence. I guess you need time to think up a lie.
sunny:
but we don't know 58
Techno:
Come on, try to lie to me again.
sunny:
stop lie
Techno:
Yes, PLEASE STOP LIE
sunny:
PLEASE STOP LIE
Techno:
How did you contact 56 initially?
Techno:
How do you two communicate?
sunny:
