    I GOT SCAMMED FOR 12k IN POINTS!!!!!

    Hey Everybody,
    Its TheCol here. I just got scammed out of 12k in points from a guy name JohnLLB.
    He was looking for points and wanted to trade me Carbon for points.
    I told him I do 400 points per $1. He said he wants $30 worth so I told him I would give him 12k in points for the $30.
    JohnLLB set it up in the market and I was chatting with him while we were going to make the deal.
    I told him I have the points in escroll and he needs to send me the $30 Carbon and I would release the points.
    He said that he never traded with me before and said that he has been scammed before. So I told him while talking in private chat that I would release the points to him as being trustworthy. He goes ok. So I release the points and I sit and wait for the transfer to show up on Carbon. I wait like 3 min and then I ask him in chat if he sent the $30 to my account.
    He logs out of chat and I cant get in touch with him. So im getting pissed and start sending Zab 2 PM's concerning this situation and try to explain what happened.
    During that time the same guy that took my 12k points (JohnLLB) was working a deal with UGOTMERGED for $15 for 10k in points. UGOTMERGED didnt know that I just got scammed.
    So I got in the main chat and told everyone that I got scammed out of 12k in points on a bad Market deal.
    So this guy(JohnLLB) ends up selling the points he scammed from me to UGOTMERGED for $15 paypal.
    I talked with UGOTMERGED and he said he had no idea that I just got scammed my this guy(JohnLLB).
    UGOTMERGED offered me back the points but I, said no. I didnt want anyone to lose there money for the points.
    Winnachip and Sharking also witnessed all this happening at once.
    Zab I guess you can look into banning this guy. Im pretty sure I wont get any points back. But to all that do deals in the market place. Make sure you put what ever your trading in escroll and never release till you have a good trade.
    Zab this is as close as I remember what happen at around 11:40pm Central.

    So sad to see a nice guy like theCol get scammed like this. If it is thru paypal maybe Ugotmerged can have it canceled. And if so you could get your points back. If not, I hope zab is able to refund you. Sorry man

    im so sorry to hear abt this sir $ 30 is not small amounts its like mine lifetime earnings on PO took me 1 yrs time. i am upset for this loss for u it happend to me also i got scammed and was on chat and pm to this guy who just took the points and after that cant even find him in PO he must hav register new id lesson to be learnt dont trade big with someone u dont trust (hav not traded with before) if its small amount like less than $ 5 its ok to trade with new unknown player but at ur own risk and better to trade in parts not big amount at one time.
