    Erik Destler cool cool cool

    This thread is for posting anyone who's scammed you in #SPP-wifi in terms of trading; say, traded you a crap Pokemon for a rare Pokemon and then disappeared without keeping their end of the deal.
    Or, perhaps they used some nasty hacks in Battle, or something along those lines.
    Maybe, you’ve even been scammed!

    Anyway, follow the template to post any user(s) who've scammed you to add them to the list and discuss the theft.

    If possible, post a screenshot of what happened. You can take a screenshot by using the Prt Scrn button on your keyboard if you are on a Windows PC, and then open Paint, and copy and paste, and save as a .jpg or .png. : )

    Please no "Oh I'm so sorry that happened to you" posts; they will be considered spam, and infracted.

    Pokemon scammed: Shiny Beldum

    The story: I met him online, said he had a mew for my shiny beldum. I told him that it wouldn't be a fair trade to him, cause mew is an event poke while Beldum is not. He begged and he begged and he begged and begged until finally I broke. He said he wanted to get rid of his legends because he felt they were cheap, and he wanted a team of non legends. He seemed to want it so bad. After we traded he immediately admitted it was a hacked mew. I checked the location it was found, and he was telling the truth. He refused to give me my beldum back.

    UPDATE!: The scammer returned to me, and after he was kicked from the wi fi chat again, he returned the pokemon to me, only he fed it rare candies, so now it's a level 100 shiny metagross!

    Pokemon Scam: tyranitar
    The Story: I was saying I had 492 pokemon and if anyone want any pre evolved pokemon for anything. He PM's me askign for a feebas. I add him and we both connect. We traded and he saw my tyranitar. He then said he needed it to complete his pokedex. He would also trade back straight after. I being a nice person traded him and then he dced wihout tradin back.
    Edit: He said he had DS problems and that he would get back to me later so and that his DS ran out of battery. I guess I can trust him for now... if he was a real scammer he would't have contacted me.

However, when we got onto wifi, I checked the Groudons status etc to make sure it was legit and it said it was caught in route 229 at lv51. I disconected straight away.

    You kind of deserve that. The only people who do 2:1 trades are scammers and/or hackers, and I'm pretty sure they're against the rules too (at least I've seen some OPS kick people for it).

    Pokemon Scammed (if any): Shiny Giratina (Legit)
    The Story (What Happened): In the #spp-wifi chat I was searching for a legit event Darkrai. So this guy named Arafath pms me looking for shinies. I list them all. He picks 2: Shiny Giratina and Shiny Electivire. I said I would because I desperately wanted a legit Darkrai. He then asks me to trade Giratina first for a Clefable. I declined it and asked for him to trade Darkrai first. After 30 minutes of arguing I finally gave in and traded my Shiny Giratina. Then after the trade was finished he immediately left the chat and the game. After getting over my dissapointment I remembered I could post this here. Please make sure this WiFi criminal does not scam any more.

    I don't have all the info since he signed off. Hope this is enough. I'll edit this if he comes back, but that doesn't seem to be the case

    Pokemon Scammed: Deoxys, Jirachi
    The Story:

    So he was going to give me a legit Darkrai for 2 deoxys and a jirachi. Three events for one, hmm. Anyway after giving him one deoxys and the jirachi (for 2 junk pokemon), he immediately disconnected and tried making fun of me for being scammed. And then all of the sudden he tries to give me the Darkrai because he "doesn't want to be a bad person" and when I threaten to report him he says he's a one time visitor here anyway so "**** you". He even tries to convince me that one of the junk pokemon he gave me deletes pokemon (lol). Then he tries acting all apologetic, trying to ask for me even more legendaries and then tries to make the excuse that he throught my last Deoxys (which is Japanese) was hacked for some reason, so now he's accusing me of hacking after everything he did because apparently he thought Japanese text being longer signified hacking, or something along those lines. Anyway after a long drawn out convo and him apparently being remorseful I was going to give him the last deoxys for the darkrai finally, but said I'm only bringing that. Unfortunately you need at least 2 pokemon to trade, so I once I found that out I said I'd be back to get one last pokemon, so when I did that 30 seconds later he logged off and DC'd. Said something about going swimming earlier.

    Too bad, I was going to forgive him and not do this. Also, claims to live in the Phillipines. I saved the latter half of the convo if anyone needs to read it.

    By the way, don't give me any of that "only people who do 2:1 trades are hacker/scammers" stuff. I didn't really need any of those pokemon so i didn't care.

    It's hard to keep track of all the scammers here. Might I suggest making a black list that's easily available to the chat room if you need to do a check?

    Pokemon Scammed (if any): Shiny Pidgeot, Shiny Pikachu

    The Story (What Happened): So hunter posted that he was looking for some shiny Pokemon. I decided, why not? I have some extras from earlier trades. So, I went a sent him a message asking him what exactly he was offering. He simply said "good offers; maybe events if it's good." I offered him two shiny Pokemon, which he declined stating that my Entei from Colosseum was "hacked." How can you hack on a Game Cube is something I have yet to learn. I offered him some more, desperate for an event Pokemon. He finally accepted these shiny PKMN: Pikachu, Pidgeot, Zangoose. I didn't like it; I only had one of each... and I liked Zangoose. Nonetheless, I accepted hastily when he offered an Alamos Darkrai for 3 of mine. Hmhm, how odd. We got into the trade and after I traded my Pikachu and Zangoose off, Darkrai being the final part of the trade, he paused and... bloop. Disconnected. He didn't get my Pidgeot, luckily, but the thing that got at me the most was the fact that he scammed me. Odd, yes. He logged off immediately after, never to be seen again. I posted on the public area not to trade with him, I was told by a mod to put him on the black list, and here I am.

    So... watch out for him! It was a legit Darkrai, but the PKMN I got for my shiny ones were a Cranidos and Anorith... What a deal.
