The Full Helmet Scam is when a seller puts in a Full Helmet in the trade screen and replaces it with a medium helmet. It is not fully extinct yet, but has lessened since the invention of the Second Trade Screen. It may be reported using the "Scamming" option under the Honour category. Players who are caught typically are issued a temporary mute, though repeat offenders can receive longer mutes or even bans.

ExampleEdit

Buyer says: Buying Rune full helm 30k.
A seller trades the buyer.
The seller puts in a Rune full helmet. He quickly takes it out and puts in a Rune medium helmet.
The buyer does not notice the Trade Modified sign.
The buyer clicks accept twice.
The buyer is scammed.

Alternate WayEdit

Because of the new Trade Screen, there is a new scam method to watch out for. Below is somewhat, an example.

Buyer says: Buying Rune full helm 30k.
A seller trades the buyer.
The seller puts in a Rune full helmet and purposely clicks decline.
The seller says Oops! to make it look like an accident.
The seller offers another trade and this time puts in a Rune med helm which is only worth about 8-10K on the streets.
The buyer is overjoyed and doesn't care about checking the second trade screen. Both click accept twice.
The seller might say 'nub' or something like that and log out.
The buyer reports the seller for scamming.
