Psyonix doesn't monitor player-to-player trading. It is your responsibility to make sure you are fine with the trade. Psyonix implemented this feature for you to trade with friends. It is of upmost importance to be careful when trading with players you don't know. Unless you have proof of glitch abuse or any other cheat that made you lose your item, feel free to contact the Psyonix support at: https://support.rocketleague.com/

However, if you lost your item because you didn't pay enough attention, then there is nothing Psyonix can do.

Scammers

Postby Cbate4444 on Sun Aug 06, 2017 12:24 pm

Hello. Please can we have some action on scammers. My son has been caught twice today and it's very upsetting. He is a savvy player and knows the risks and things to look out for and is a seasoned gamer. However he was still stung twice today and these scammers know there is no comeback on them. Please put a report button into the game so that they can be reported or stopped. It is spoiling the game for a great many players and as the game writers you have a responsibility!!! People will stop playing your game eventually if this is not addressed. Please issue proper response and consideration to this serious issue.

I was brought into what they called a bidding game where you bid at each other good stuff for bubbly and another mystery decal, so being new I went along I thought it was cool and I hadnt seen this type of trading. So, I traded with [name removed by mod] on Xbox One and he held the items because he had the bubbly and these other 2 guys were trading against me essentially, and I know this sounds very dumb of myself but for the chance to get a bubbly. So, I traded about 15 Overdrive crates, an animus, an orange endo, a mantis, amd helios boost. All of this was after each round of everyone "bidding their stuff". and at the end I was the "winner" I was kicked and he will not message me back or anything. I literaly shut my game off and was just like yep. I just got acammed cuz I was dumb. So yes it is my fault but if anyone can get this guy reported banned anything I'm sure im not the only one.

I got scammed

Postby H A l3 I T on Mon Aug 07, 2017 3:34 pm

I technically didn't get scammed but I did. I did a trade with [name removed by Mod] on Xbox One 46 crates for Heat. He promised to give it back if I changed my mind. After multiple attempts he still hasn't responded. Please help me get my items back <3

Waterbottle wrote:I'm sorry this happened to you. I know it sucks to hear this but it is of utmost importance to always double check your trades and be very cautious about them. The trading system has been implemented for you to trade with friends. If you trade with strangers it is your responsibility to be careful. Psyonix definitely needs to implement an additional window that shows all items that are about to be traded where both parties can only accept again without being able to remove anything. Nontheless, as the system works, you accepted the trade, therefore Psyonix cannot help you from here. They give you the necessary tools to prevent this from happening. If your trading partner adds or swaps out items while you've already accepted and afterwards removes an item, your first confirmation will be terminated. That way it is still in your hands if you want to continue the trade. It is never a good idea to blindly accept again. Either tell the other party to remove the items you didn't ask for or do not agree to the trade. I know you didn't intend for the trade to go the way it did but you had the opportunity to check correctly. I personally do not understand the mindset of anyone that tricks other players on purpose. It shows a really dark side of character. But again, I'm sorry it happened to you. But as I said since it wasn't something you couldn't have prevented, there is nothing that Psyonix can do about the transaction. A tip: On the bottom left in the trading window you'll find a button called 'Show details'. Click that and hover over every item and you'll see the respective painted colour spelled out. This will prevent you mixing up colours. And also, don't lend people items. Make a trade you're both happy with or don't accept.


NoOne-NBA wrote:I'm sorry this happened to you, but Psyonix has done pretty much everything they can do to prevent this, if you look at the bigger picture.

1) They warned you that all trades are final, up front.
They even mention that they will not police any trades after the fact, before they allow you to trade at all.

2) You had to agree to the trade in question, before it would go through.
There's no way for Psyonix to tell the difference between buyer's regret, and people actively attempting to scam THEM, once the trade is done.

3) If Psyonix starts returning items to people who claim to have been scammed it opens up a whole new scam against Psyonix itself.
There are some items in this game that are worth considerably more than the game itself.
That would make it profitable for people to buy a new copy of the game, use that to scam a few people, trade those items away legitimately to friends, get banned, and use the proceeds of those scams to buy another new copy of the game, and start the process over again.

I've been scammed for 83 crates. This includes many of the discontinued crates. I'm pissed that I was stupid enough to trust people and I'm pissed that Psyonix can't help me but that isn't why I'm here. I wan't to say 2 things:

1) Everyone just watch out for who you trade with. It was 2 people from Rocket League Trading that did this to me.

2) Does anyone have bubbly that they wan't to trade me? I wan't to do it with ONE trade where I can SEE BUBBLY being given to me. I don't wan't to be scammed again.

Being Scammed

Postby Rocketplayer on Mon Aug 21, 2017 9:28 am

I was trading with someone and I gave all my crates and I had really good ones too, then what he game me was 1 car that looked cool and I excepted, after that, when the trade ended it showed a really bad car he wanted to trade but I refused but it went till processing trade with the car I wanted. I dont know how he changed the car but I lost half my stuff from that.

Unfortunately because you agreed to give away your items by clicking the accept button, Psyonix officials most likely will not get involved, also due to the fact that it is each player's responsibility to ensure that you are receiving the items you want within a trade.

Sorry for your loss.

Scammed... Help!

Postby Tychron on Fri Aug 25, 2017 5:05 pm

I'm new to the community, and have just started to get into trading.
I was contacted with an offer in which I would trade 25 crates for Bubbly.

To make a long story short, I was scammed 24 crates.
...That was stupid...

So, what do I do now? I have the scammers profile, I have the conversation recorded, what steps do I take now?
Is there any way for me to get my items back? Being but a low-level peasant everything counts...

Thanks in advance!
