Has the ghosting scam been fixed yet?

Postby RocketGeezus on Mon Jul 09, 2018 10:39 am

I'm kinda nervous trading big items worried about getting scammed. Is this still going on or has psyonix fixed the problem yet and if not how do you avoid being scammed?

Don’t login on suspicious sites and all will be well. And be careful when you trading.

Ghosting scam is when it looks like someone is trading an item to you but after the trade goes through you get nothing.

OMG!
Does this mean my prized kitty litter topper and used condom antenna are at risk?

There is no way to be able to tell that the item isn't real until after the trade is complete and you get nothing. It LOOKS like the item is there but it's not really.
