What happened The user posted in the forum for evolution trading offering to help anyone who needed a pokemon evolved through trades. After sending him the pokemon he logged out. The user also pulled the same scam on the user Fated9. I don't have any evidence, because of my noob ignorance- and because I didn't think that a 4IV phantump was something someone was really going to steal (takes about 30 minutes to make). I doubt he will get banned now but maybe when he scams someone smarter than myself they can use this as supporting evidence...
he just did the same thing to my brother. he took the shiny trevanant and shiny kangaskhan but never traded the shiny mew.

Description:
This user with the friend code 3797-7428-1904 and IGN (In-game name) Calem scammed me out of a 5IV totodile with egg moves. He offered me a 5IV riolu with 5 max IVs. I naively traded, only to receive a riolu with one max IV in HP. He offered to battle and I also accepted. He quit halfway through when I was winning. After that I checked the riolu's IVs and they did not match what I requested. When I told him that it only had one max IV, he disconnected.

I am a trusted trader- I usually trade on the Serebii and Smogon forums under the username 'Lizilla' ad 'Lizilla89' If you have any issue with the validity of this, you can contact me on there.

I'm posting this it so that others don't make the same mistake that I did and so that his friend code is searchable in google.

Hey there, got scammed by JHVJUNIOR, his ingame name is Junior and his friendcode the following:
2723 9870 3852

He posted to have darumakas up for trade. I sended him a PM asking if he had one with its hidden ability, he responded yes and asked me what I was offering, he decided to go for one of my IV bred koffings and yeah well Its obvious it didnt had its hidden ability so yeah there it is. :)

I don't know if this is ban worthy or even blacklist worthy, but it's still pretty suspect.

Description: He/She wanted a 5IV flawless Bagon, for a Skarmory with Stealth Rock, Whirl Wind, Brave Bird. Before I pulled the trigger, I checked the summary of the Poke and saw that it had no Stealth Rock. I figured that since SR Skarm's pretty coveted atm, they'd have a bunch of it up for trade.

Can you show us the PMs, if possible?

And rhythmic, I don't think that exactly entails a black listing at this moment, but I will keep an eye on it and will ask the other TF mods to do so, also.

What happened: This user is claiming to trade 5IV pokemon when they are not. He traded me a 1 IV Pinsir when he said she was 5IV. He has not replied back, despite being on and he continues to post on the IV Bread Thread. Another user has also been scammed by him

Attack and Speed). He also did the same thing with the user Bluemiracle giving him a 1 IV Pinsir.

I have some Pictures of the 3IV Pinsir (can take video if needed) and also I have screenshots of the messages.

I looked into the case and it seems after you posted this he made another account. I have reported it but got more evidence and it shows that this trade happened too.

I'll go ahead and ask for the ban on that member and their alt accounts. If the other users can send information about the other scammers, that'd be wonderful. Thank you!

I have VM'd them to check the above post. Imo there's a chance the net died or they had to go somewhere else, so we'll see. If so I imagine the trade can be just continued next time, and hopefully that is indeed the case.

Amacitare - same deal, maybe you can complete the trade now? Although the timing does seem a bit odd there, Sidhe111, in the alleged disconnection (and if nobody wants them, why did you want 5 yourself? =p). If you're fine to complete that trade when next possible it'll be fine.

The problem isnt that i didnt want to complete the trade the problem is that it never happened for me? like at all i got 2 off of him for 2 stones and a masterball... I wanted 5 due to a bet with a friend that i couldnt get a whole box lol, But he only traded the previously mentioned 2 and i believe he was angry that i didnt trade him or he traded the wrong person himself.
