Goes by the name of G R A N D on FF and he just screwed me out of a writ. Coulda been worse but being trusting I wouldn't go for the full trade until I got one back. Serves me right for being trusting. Not that a FF writ is worth anything at all to me if I can't trade it. Just don't make a trade with this guy!

xserver trades will always have risk involved. if you intend to trade in this method stick to things you can take back as needed.... aka rank mules.

I could care less about the writ. It was the 20-30 minutes of jockeying around to get everything in place that ticked me off. Waste of my time. I just wanted to warn others that may come upon this clown.

there is a known theif on ff that came from another server a few years ago. unfortunatly the person has made his home on FF and proceeds to jack people off daily.

insist on using a middle man..... foxy knows me and if anyone ever needs one on FF and im on im available to help if need be.

if someone is claiming they are a well known person on ff or any server for that matter INSIST they get on their main or do not do the trade. dont accept someone vouching for the person in cg. the theif i have in mind that probly jacked you likes to pretend to be other people.

if its an x server trade have said middleman be on both servers to help and hold the things. and make sure the middleman is actually a middleman and not an alt of the theif.

also... this person is also on turbines radar.. so report, report, report....

im sorry it happened =-/

The guy was Gine on TD and G R A N D on FF. Like I said I'm more upset about wasting a half an hour than losing a writ on FF which I would never use. I have already made several successful xserver writ trades and this is the first one gone bad. And yes I did report abuse on both TD and FF.

You can't get in trouble for stealing. But, on the other hand making false reports to Turbine is punishable.

You spent 30min to steal one bag of FP... lol that is pathetic. What a waste of time.

In all honesty how much time would you say you spend on FF, and other servers attempting to steal items in cross server trades? With the time you invest in stealing items like these in cross server trades I have no doubt you could have earned the mmds to buy items such as these in a legit way.

Furthermore simply because Turbine does not necessarily ban or punish you, you have not been punished. One of the great things about Asherons Call is the community. I have no doubt you are already banned from all allegiances on FF, and are squelched by the majority of the server.

I also find your sig. very humorous. Way to get owned, and then cry on AC forums.

My rule for trading with anyone from FF or DT is they give first. I've had no problems.

Guy from DT gave me a golden key ring for free, you want it on TD? I have no use for it. if you don't want will sell to others and make massive sick money hah but you can have for free.

Tika is definitely someone that you can trust on FF. The person to be aware of on FF goes by the name of "Player Character" also a few other known alts, doing and account squelch for that person and his known alts will help you down the road. Hate to say it but FF/DT have very bad reputations for this kind of nonsense. I always make sure the person has the item I am trading for at a minimum and that I know they are a high level with a respected guild on the destination server. With the rep DT/FF has, I would say let them trade first whenever possible.

Sorry you got ripped off, it is never fun sad . I feel for you, it happened to me recently as well.

I also agree, the time wasted is the biggest issue.
