Wall Of Shame
This is a section dedicated to users attempting to scam in trades. Mostly from World 301 and 302. With Old School Runescape back comes the old trade interface. This interface is still easy to trick users if the player looking to scam is able to well time the money swap.
 Money Swap Scam
This is the oldest trick in the scam book. This started before there was a second confirm screen. A player looking to scam will put up the money for an item, as the player selling puts up the item the player looking to scam will have remove-x on their money in the trade to a similar number. For example a 90,000 trade changed to 9,000 by removing 81,000. Quick glance can confuse the seller if they are not extremely careful. It is very tricky with player trading being more trusted, and quick accepts happening the second screen becomes "immune" to the seller taking a second look at the offer.
Common tricks with this scam are:
- Put up money for 1 quantity (example a set of armour) then add money for 2 sets which changes their money to flashing red, allowing the scammer to take the money back while its already flashing red.
- Adding a extra 1gp at the end of the price so they remove it causing it to flash red, allowing the scammer to take the money back while its already flashing red.
- Overpaying for an item. Paying extra then the item is worth to get you excited to click accept.
