Also remember this is only to report scammers. If you want to know if your Pokemon is hacked, find the thread in the main forum.

Below are tips for recording evidence when trading so that if your trade partner does not keep to his/her end of the deal and you are scammed, we can properly punish the offender.

Tips for Saving Trade Evidence
Since the majority of negotiation and such in SPPf's trade forums has to take place outside of the forums themselves, it can be hard to prove that your trade partner is a scammer, if that does intend to be the case. However, using these tips will give you a better chance of proving your side of the story.​

1) If your trade negotiation takes place in your Visitor Messages, all you have to do is show us the conversation. VMs can be seen by any moderator even if one or both user has a private profile, and even if the scammer deletes the VMs, we can still un-delete them to read them.

2) If your trade negotiation takes place via Private Messages, don't delete any of the PMs. Using the "Report PM" button in your PMs, you can send an exact copy of the PM(s) you received to all moderators, so we will know you didn't edit it. Just be sure to say in the description what the report is for, because not all moderators check this thread or even moderate this forum. Be sure you don't delete your PMs concerning the incident until it is resolved, because once deleted PMs cannot be recovered.

3) If your trade negotiation takes place outside of SPPf, such as in email or instant messaging (not recommended), take screenshots and save conversation logs. There isn't as much we can do with these, since they can be editted, but it's better than nothing. Try to negotiate through SPPf so that we can see what happened if anything goes wrong.

4) If your trade partner is a scammer, always be sure to get their in-game name, IDno, FC, and/or any other useful information. It's harder to change these things, so if the person creates a new account (not allowed), or the Pokemon were traded to other innocent people, they will be spotted before more people can get scammed.

Also, you should try to save this evidence before every trade with a new person just in case anything bad happens. Most people out there aren't going to take your Pokemon, but if it does happen, having better evidence can help us punish the people properly.

as you can see he wanted me to ev train his pokes but i knew i could use it against him to get him to admit it.



as you can see here he edited it to cut out the part where i said admit it






that sums it all up ...

Hello i just caught a Shiny Aipom in the friend safari. But because i had no use for it i decided to trade it in the chat channel.

Someone offered his 5x 31 iv's scyther with adamant nature and technician ability.

Copy-paste from chat:

[16:44] <asdf> hey would you be interested in a 5 IV adament technician scyther?
[16:45] <Jeroen> which iv is not 31?
[16:45] <asdf> sp def
[16:45] <Jeroen> could trade for the shiny aipom if you want
[16:45] <asdf> yeah sure!
[16:46] <Jeroen> 0189-8969-2486
[16:47] <asdf> 4038 6239 9691
[16:49] <asdf> alton your in game name?
[16:49] <Jeroen> no jeroen :p
[16:49] <asdf> are you connected
[16:50] <Jeroen> says you aren't available
[16:50] <asdf> try again
[16:50] <Jeroen> ?
[16:50] <asdf> im gonna reconnect
[16:50] <Jeroen> ok
[16:51] <asdf> are you sure your name isnt dutchEZmoder?
[16:52] <Jeroen> ehm yeah that could be the one :p sorry my mii is called Jeroen but ingame dutchezmoder yes
[16:52] <Jeroen> i think
[16:52] <asdf> ah ok
[16:52] <Jeroen> sec in battle with ditto :p
[16:52] <asdf> ok
[16:55] <Jeroen> thanks
[16:55] <asdf> ty
[16:59] <asdf> b
[17:01] <Jeroen> nice scam
[17:01] asdf No such nick/channel

The Scyther turned out to have 0 x 31 iv's.

His friend code is 4038-6239-9691 and Mii/ingame name is John. The OT of the Scyther was David. According to this i assume he got scammed and now scammed someone else...

I offered 3 Shiny Pokemon for his Shiny Mewtwo, He said he would trade it last for fear of being scammed, I figured since I would have to trade the three of them anyway.

I am not sure if this is a good idea to show someone private. Is there a rule about that?

Yeah, if they're not a member of the forum then there's nothing we can really do. I'm also not fond of bringing in someone's facebook name without their permission. If you want to talk about it more you can PM me.

I don't believe making an honest mistake is scamming. If anything you're scamming me atm out of my account here :3 Like I said in the PM, I can give you another set.

If I may I just made a few trades with nanamine and he delivered exactly what he offered

Well I appreciate that.

What would be nice is if someone could forward me the PMs or something, but since nobody has and Nanamine is going out of his way to give another set there's not much I can do.
