WITHDRAW FROM Mannco.store

Recommended Posts

I am just here to let people know, not to trust mannco.store. I understand most people already know the site is a scam but for those you don't. Trust me from personal experience it is, withdraw your items and save your self the hassle of dealing with them. 

I deposited quite a lot of items but due to my inactivity the site admins decided to sell my items and remove the items from the site inventory. 

I contacted the the "Alex" from mannco, and he informed me after 3 months the item will be removed and deleted. Which is a clear lie, as he traded them away to bots and other traders after 9 weeks of the items being on the site, without informing me to remove my items or any type of contact. These two are just a few of the ones he traded away. https://backpack.tf/item/5233966016  https://backpack.tf/item/5233966016

 

If you want to save your items, withdrew now, cus their TOS gives them power to steal anyone's item at any point in time.

To be fair, you lost nothing of value, you also abused their system as a storage bot, which it literally says you're not supposed to do, and on top of that they still offered compensations

It's up to your eye what you consider of value but at the end of the day it's not about the items. It's about the decency of not trading my items away because I left it unattended and didn't post them. It's pretty obvious this all situation is a scam, this just shows they can take ban anyone and take their items just because they had a bad day at work. Could you show me where it says i can't use the site a storage bot? "3$" is not compensation it is a joke. If you checked the image, those items are worth a lot more than 3$. 

 

Just know this Pollen, if you deposit on there. The admins can take your item at any moment in time, just because they can. If that want to enjoy backing that kinda community/site go ahead, i won't stop you. It's your life.

In the chat logs they mention a friend of yours also lost their items? I wonder how many others got hit by this? 

"so please stop saying bullcrap and accept your loss since its your problem" , "we don't waste time to contact people one by one for trash items"

-lol not very professional way to communicate when you run a website.

At the end of the day TOS is TOS, it is the user's responsibility to read the TOS, if you did break TOS then that's on you. (I haven't read their tos but if something like this is there that is just stupid imo)

The only reason why I personally don't trust mannco.store

Depositing tons of garbage items (some worth less than 0.05 metal) and not listing them for sale for 3 weeks and forgetting about them, doesn't really seem like the Website's intended use case. Not only that, they offered you compensation (however small), which they absolutely were not required to do. You acted resolutely unprofessional and decided to decline the compensation and instead attempt to cause harm to their reputation.

 

They are a private company. When you decided to sign up to use their website, you yourself agreed to their terms and conditions. You cannot fault the website for simply abiding by the terms and conditions they set in place.

 

Next time don't use a website as a storage bot if it's got a ton of terms and conditions set in place to punish people for misuse of their website. Simple as that. Just pay for an actual storage bot.

 

Mann co store did nothing wrong. What happened to you will not affect the average user of their website.

 

Also you were rightfully banned. "As a condition to your use of the Site and Service, you agree not to: (...) make use of, promote, link to or provide access to materials deemed by Mannco.store, at its sole discretion, to be offensive or cause harm to Mannco.store’ reputation".

I did read the conversation, and yes those items are tons of garbage, it's just a few keys or about $6 in craft hats at most. If it's really the amount you are mad about, I'm surprised they even offered the $3 compensation with the way you treated them, had you been more kind in your whole conversation he likely would've given you more accurate compensation. But you acted quite rude and unprofessional, considering they weren't required to give you anything and the childish way you acted, I actually think that the $3 compensation he offered is actually quite generous.

 

I would actually be worried about something like this happening if the items involved were valuable, when initially reading and clicking on this forum post I thought you had lost a large portion of your inventory or some significant items to the site, upon further inspection this is negligent at best.

This clearly wasn't a conversation between a site owner and a site user but rather two Steam users, context is very important and you cannot always expect a party to act rationally and professional when the opposition is also being unexpectedly childish and unprofessional. Had 2OG been more respectful and simply done what he was asked (provide assetID of the items involved and screenshots of trade) the conversation would've been entirely different. If I called you a scammer and said unpleasing things about you, you most likely wouldn't be as inclined to help me would you?

I don't believe you grasp what i'm getting at, It's not about the items. It's about the principle of returning my items and the fact they can do it at any time with no reason. I am not mad about the situation, I am surprised at the fact they could do this, without notice. I acted as respectfully as i could considering the way he responded to the whole situation, I acted due to him back tracking and lying multiple times throughout the conversation, trading the items away before the 3 months had even hit. Imagine next time, few items start disappearing without the traders notice?

There is no professionalism when someone is clearly stealing your items and selling them, I found humor in the fact he kept lying many times. He told me the items were on "pending deletion", and then later i find out the items were being sold. Pollen I completely understand your side, but this post is not for me to show i got scammed, it's let people know it's very easy to lose your items on mannco.store.   You can take the context however you like but if you can't see the bigger picture here, then i am in fault for not explaining the situation properly.

In that case I would agree yes, it's pretty easy to lose your items on their site after reading their terms and conditions, and the fact that they do technically retain the right to terminate everyone's accounts and run with the entire site's inventory is quite scary, I don't use their site personally for other moral reasons such as Smokey mentioned above but I would like to remind you these same things would've applied and still apply to https://marketplace.tf/. They could've done the same thing at a moments notice. Considering the amount of time the website has existed, high amounts of volume on the site's Bot inventories, and amount of items sold successfully, I would say the chance of them running with everyone's items and terminating balances at this point is almost none, they likely would've done it already. I've seen no shortage of people using the site and having it work just fine, only complaints I hear are about setting up Payoneer as it's their only cashout option, cashout fees and strict terms and conditions.

And you are right not to use their services, considering the fact they banned me from the site and falsely labelled me as a scammer. Adding onto the fact they publicly put my email out, so that other platforms can ban me.

Hit them back, with internet security stuff. Obviously, they are more concerned about the exchange of goods and services rather than human values.

In November I had to make the decision to quite trading when MP shut down, or emigrate to mannco. With each day I'm so glad I chose the former even more.

Choice is a word you use in order to switch a person's attention to something that benefits you, not them.

Promoting?

The former, i.e, I chose to stop trading completely, (I only traded on MP), as opposed to moving to a sketchy site like mannco, and risking something like what happened to OP happening to me. I just took my money and walked.

There is, but I appreciated the passive nature of it, and the fact I never had to downgrade or liquidate items, since money is as liquid as it gets. I did the Steam trading thing for a long time, but the money's not worth the effort at this point. Minimum wage is still leagues higher. (Gonna stop replying now, I don't wanna hijack a thread talking about something genuinely worthwhile with my unwanted anecdotes).

It's your fault for using their bots as a inventory so now you must pay the price for breaking tos.

Alex got banned for buying a Steam account that was marked on SteamRep, not for directly scamming someone

While I do not know if this is true or not, I am going to stand with SR mark being on that account making them non-trustable. 
However, its funny " 🤣 " to me now ~ Alex bans 2OG for breaking TOS and he himself is breaking Steam TOS if what you said is true https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=7496-ROJC-3719
