    avoiding scammers

    With well known scammers returning to the game I just want to remind people to be cautious in trades and make the new players aware that trion doesn't take part in any form of helping the players once a theft has occurred. They have quite literally said scamming is legal in defiance. So please everyone new and old keep your wits about you in your trades. Don't do something that could possibly get you ripped off.

    link to trions customer support page on scamming in defiance.

    Can't. Goes against the T.O.S. of the forum concerning naming and shaming.

    I thought about throwing up a website that people could use to submit and track scammers with but it would just be a waste of time because it's too easy for them to just create new accounts and continue scamming. The only real solution is for Trion to re-design the trades to be a 2 step process but unfortunately it's simpler for Trion to take the easy way out and declare that scamming is legal. Sometimes I'm embarrassed that I still give this company money.
