I got sharked


Mexican vader

Recommended Posts

So a year ago this guy sharked and I see that he still walks among us. The problem I have is that I've tried to call him out before but he always denies everything and even threatened to by filing a report I don't have the evidence anymore but I would like some help

Well first off, who did it? (Add me if you don't want to say it out). Also, there has got to be a bit of proof that the person did shark you and if there isn't, how do we know that you are not just throughout a random claim out there? (If you don't know where to find evidence, add me and I can help)

Here he denies it and says he traded a aussi rocket launcher.    Is this some proof?

Did he explicitly lie to you about the price? What was the price of the ambassador 1 year ago? The Rocket Launcher?

Tell me the prices of everything. Otherwise, we can't be sure.

He didn't lie about and in fact I was the one who wanted it but I thought it was a lot and he knew it wasn't. I told him the price of the unusual but I was never aware of the price of the amby

if you asked for a trade, I don't see how he sharked you. Sure, you might be overpaying, but thats your own fault, not the other partys'. Sharking is actively lying about the price, but if he didn't do that, its just good profit that he made.

That wouldn't be considered as sharking. It's your job to check the prices of each of the items being traded to see if they make sense, and if not, call him out on it. If you didn't check prices, it's more your fault

I would consider this sharking. Mainly cause he knew and took advantage of it. Most people that I've met usually tell me

no it isn't proof, he could easily be misremembering the trade since it was a long while ago...

 

also it doesn't even look like it's been 5 months since this happened, let alone a year? https://backpack.tf/item/2844838752

I don't even know where to begin.  You say that the following is true:

 

1)  You initiated the offer.

2)  You didn't even know the value of his item.

3)  He never lied to you about his item or its value.

And you still got ~50% of its price in nearly-pure. (aussies are basically pure).  That's just a QS that you later regretted; it's not close to sharking.

 

That profile -trust you left him will get removed by mods, and if it was up to me you'd get some sort of punishment for falsely making public accusations of dishonest trading practices.

Yea man.  It was a bad trade, but what did you lose?  15 keys or so?  Really in the grand scheme of things not the end of the world.  If you had lost a 20 dollar bill a year ago, would you still be upset about it?  Probably not, chances are you wouldn't even remember.  Same thing here, keep things in perspective, you lost less than $30 here, no big deal.
