So for all of You, people who were voting against the item trading in the game, and trying to convince us that it will kill the gold sellers/chat spammers. In Your face :P.

TO ALL INTERESTED: THIS IS A SCAM. NO, THERE IS NO DOUBT.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but trading cs items shouldn't be possible right?

overall the website seems fake.

It was legal on KR. Maybe they dont realize they cant trade them yet. How it would make sense to sell you items for half of what they pay for though.... LOL.

There is A LOT of new people here, who doesn't know how the game works (I'm terribly clueless as well). If they will see 50% off, they will pay the guy. Even if he'll scam them only once, he can still make some good quick money.

I've checked the web page just because of this awesome name: "Bikinipanda". They are selling the items not yet available in our store. It is a scam.

 

//EDIT: I've checked the whole page and there is not a single photo of Bikini Panda there :(.

I've played 30 hours now since the headstart on the 28th. I've never seen a gold spammer. So one forum post is not enough for me to come to your side. Start seeing this l like wow or archeage then we'll talk. Until then, sorry bro, i think the system works well. Play the game or don't.

Totally its just a scam, ppl who made a purchase will never get what they wanted. They will be end up having a huge fight and drama with the gold seller.

Give them some time. Bikini Panda is a Pioneer scammer ;]. There will be more over time ^_^.

They will be out there because they can bot up money and trade you a prodigious amount of potions to get you silver. They do it on KR,RU, but these are the bottom feeders of the gold seller community. No reputable selling would waste any time on this when they can make money so easily in WoW and 20 other games.

My own experience of hours upon hours of playing and having this game be the most gold seller and bot spam free mmo launch confirms their choice on trading and other measures to prevent it. One message in one screenshot doesn't say anything.

It only takes 1% of the population to go to that site and introduce their credit card for the effort to have paid itself.

1. Offer whatever people might want to buy at 50% off
2. Take their money
3. Don't send them anything
...
4. Profit!
5. Move on to the next one :).

People are very gullible. Offer them what they want at 50% off and a lot of them will buy it without thinking twice.
With a big release like this one it's a great opportunity for a quick cash :).

If they are really good, they probably manage to scam them even more. For example they might tell their customers that there is a minimum purchase of 20 euro or something.
Since they can only rip them off once, they will probably try to get as much as they can.

They might even use PayPal. People will feel confident, but they won't realize that PayPal is not offering protection against purchase of non physical goods.

There's another guy spamming it every few minutes too. Covering up the URL, not giving their site free promotions....

You know what would stop gold sellers and allow free trade to return? If game companies actually took action against gold sellers, no, I don't mean a rare temp ban, I mean a permanent ban. Of course they won't though, as it means less profits for them. The other option is to actually not buy gold, but that ain't happening. On FFXIV NA servers there's gil spam spam happening often, but on JP servers there's none as they don't actually buy it enough to warrant them stealing accounts to spam.
