the sin clears out frost and charges people to kill heads,mobs,boss. up 300k+
and then they boot them from the party after paying.So im wondering is this bannable or what?Or its are own fault for trusting people and let these people continue to do this ****.

how many people here had this happen to them on there alts? i have twice already.

    I don't think it's right but i don't think the TOS prevents it so ummmm, ask some of your friends to solo? Half of my fl are always trying to sell me the big room x.x

    It's common practice for loser sins to do that.

    Well, technically it *is* scamming if he/she sells you a product/service and then purposely fails to deliver it. But you would need proof. All I can say is, one of two things: either refuse to pay until after the killing is done, or SS everything. Keep the trade window of money screenshotted and chatbox telling what the money trade is for as well. Say in chat something like, so 500k for heads and stuff? before you pay so that person will respond accordingly. Then when you are kicked you have proof, SS the line that you have been kicked out of squad along with pic of boss/mobs remaining, etc.

    Good luck. Scammers should be punished, imo.

    Never happened, mostly because I would never pay for heads. Mostly I just clear the instance on my barb with a cleric and then we switch to our alts and do heads.


    Had one time where I went on an FC run and after we finished mobs the barb kicked me from squad for heads. Fortunately I was level 85 so I started the quest and killed, when timer got low I went back to character screen and logged in again. Still got less xp than normal.

    You may be able to ticket it as a form of player harassment. It doesn't hurt to try.

    Honestly, it's MUCH more profitable to keep repeat customers than scam one group and permanently ruin your reputation. I make 2m in 35-50 minutes soloing FC, whenever I want; if I scammed a group for a mere 2m, that cash cow would be skinned and butchered.

    I vote do that thing where you play the game normally till 80, then just get an FC squad, now you cant get scammed out of your cash.

    No instead you waste time and some cash(on repairs, pots and genie stamina) when the idiotic lead decides to kick you so he/she can cash out on some noobs

    Why would you wait until 90?

    As long as you have one 85+ in squad to activate quests, a squad of 80's can run FC just fine.

    try getting a squad at 80. I've only ever managed to get 1 or 2 that isn't a FACTION run. (or wasn't cala doing it to be nice to me)

    It's a trust trade.. that's part of the risk for doing something like that. Tbh i have no sympathy for people bypassing the game from like lvl 3x - 100 by only doing frosts and wondering why their character sucks at endgame.

    Play the game instead of frosts, problem solved.. There should be a level limit to enter frost anyways. So many hyper noobs in my bh squads who are so clueless on what to do in certain situations.. Mainly clerics.

    This. Take your screenshots if this happens to you and send a ticket here: http://support.perfectworld.com/

    Honestly, if you don't want to get scammed like this, lv the normal way, or do this kind of thing with your friends/faction.
