hailster Posted February 5, 2019 Share Posted February 5, 2019 EDIT 3: Nvm, whole post is invalid, no one was taken advantage of, it's just a double fuck up on my end. Read mb's reply and my reply to his. Requesting lock. Hello! Firstly, this was a complete mess up on my part and my part alone. The other trader has the right to accept the trade offer as it was sent, regardless of it being a messed up offer. I don't blame the other trader for accepting the trade and don't want to accuse anyone of taking advantage of the situation or play any blame games, I just want to know if I can do something about this or whether or not I just have to deal with it. That being said, here's what happened. I wanted to buy halloween unusuals, so I sent an offer of 80 pure for a Something Burning Comes This Way Virtual Reality Headset and a Secret to Everybody Birdcage, it was declined, so I sent one again for 85 pure, however I added a Circling Heart Virtual Reality Headset and a Secret to Everybody Birdcage instead. The trade offer was accepted, and I got in-game to receive the items, when I realized I got a Circling Heart Virtual Reality Headset instead. I immediately commented on the aforementioned traders profile and requested an add, the add was declined and I was blocked, my comments were removed. Again, I'm not blaming the person of taking advantage of the situation, but if proof is asked for this I can give it via direct message rather than sharing it publicly. I'm not sure if there are any rules against this or if this just comes down to personal choice whether or not you can take advantage of the situation. I completely understand if I have to just deal with this situation and will do so if told. Do not go out of your way to find the trader and harrass him in anyway, regardless of how much of a dick move this was. The other trader should know that I did indeed mean to buy the SBCTW Virtual Reality and Secret Birdcage rather than the C.Heart Virtual Reality and the secret birdcage as I made these two offers with very short time in between, and also mentioned the fact that the unusuals were unsold for the specified periods of time in both the offers. Proof attached. Screenies are very zoomed out because I want to encompass the trade in one photo. If unreadable, Trade offer text says: "5 months and an year unsold huh" "85. Final offer, yours have been unsold for an year and 5 months." "I messed up and added the circling heart reality rather than sbctw birdcage, can we do a tradeback?" "Tradeback please? I messed up the trade offer, meant to do SBCTW virtual + Scrt birdcage, not C.heart virtual + Scrt birdcage" For context, I re-sent the offer again because I wasn't clear enough in the first tradeback request trade about what I meant. It was declined, I was blocked, and my comments were removed shortly after. Don't fuck up like me and put the wrong items in guys, you might get fucked over and blocked too. EDIT: I have proof of the block, however the screenshot reveals the profile, so I won't share that publicly, only will share it through direct messages if asked by someone. EDIT 2: In defense of the other trader, the persons B/O on the Birdcage was 65, and since the Circling Heart Virtual Reality Headset is priced at 25, his B/O could have been high on the Virtual Reality Headset too, hence why he thought the offer was just a full pure offer for both and accepted rather than knowingly taking advantage of the situation.
