Slightly off topic, but a very big thank you to the person (people) that created the information regarding scammers. As this is my first ever trade I was messaged by someone (within minutes of my post above) on the gogwiki list of known scammers.
I was a second away for exchanging my keys and providing my email address for another game to be gifted to me.
Sounds like you dodged a bullet there.
Could you please, share the name of that user, and post a screenshot of your exchange with them? Thanks.
I was just contacted by "Schizo2o15" for a trade - instead of the real "Schizo2015". A scammer, so beware if you're contacted by SCHIZO2015 and check first, which one it is!
Would you mind attaching a screenshot of your exchange with them to your post?
Beware of user SCHIZO2O15
I am pretty sure this guy is a scammer or a complete idiot if not.
Edit: OK, the stupid but probably innocent account was SCHIZO2015 the scammer is SCHIZO2O15 ('O' not zero).
He offered me Ethereal Lords 1+2 Indie Steam codes for Eternal Lords, when I was asking for GOG codes only anyway a couple of days ago; not withstanding the fact that they're completely different
So, I added him to my blocklist on chat.
Today, somehow or other he managed to bypass the blocklist ban and send me another chat saying he wanted about 5 of my STEAM gifts for Age of Wonders 3, then proceeds to give me an e-mail address where to send them!
When I said, I was only offering ONE Gift, he then says he will offer Grim Dawn as well, LOL.
After saying I ONLY want an Age of Wonders 3 code, he wants me to send the gifts to 'see if they have expired' first!
I'm sure you can smell the BS a mile away here?
Could you, please, also attach a screenshot to your post? Thanks.
Hi, I'm a dumbass. I blocked and cleared the conversation but the users name is V0NYER. A zero instead of the capital letter O. The conversation was to send my two keys on chat along with my email address. He would then mail me a gift for the new Van Helsing. (Spelunky + Gabriel Knight 3 for this more expensive new game was the first red flag). I then googled his name and found the GOG wiki. Next time I will save conversations and post screenshots.
