He claims he is doing a giveaway for an AK Red Laminate, originally he needed help making his crosshair static but now I think it was really just a cover story.

So far his game is to make me feel bad for him in hopes of getting me to give him over $30 worth of items. I just met the kid yesterday and he expects me to trust him?

2:36 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: So
2:36 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: Can't you donate something a little bit more worth so you show people to help me smile.gif
2:37 PM - Psycho29388: If I had money to spare I'd have no problem donating more than I did
2:37 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: :/
2:37 PM - Psycho29388: I'd probably donate a couple of keys
2:37 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: WILL YOU? biggrin.gif
2:37 PM - Psycho29388: Thats the thing
2:37 PM - Psycho29388: I dont have the money for it
2:37 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: Oh
2:37 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: ;(

2:38 PM - Psycho29388: Is have it entry based instead of point based
2:39 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: Oh
2:39 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: So i pick one random?
2:39 PM - Psycho29388: Yeah but
2:39 PM - Psycho29388: the more items a person donates
2:39 PM - Psycho29388: the more entries he gets
2:39 PM - Psycho29388: and it could be adapted into
2:39 PM - Psycho29388: the point system you have now
2:39 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: This is gonna sound weird, but if I get a expensive weapon I give you 20 entries on the next giveaway wich is a knife
2:40 PM - Psycho29388: 10 entries for a hoenix case and 1 for each sticker capsule, etc
2:40 PM - Psycho29388: The phoenix case alone
2:40 PM - Psycho29388: is $1.50
2:40 PM - Psycho29388: and 3 of them could easily secure you a AK red Laminate
2:40 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: yeah
2:41 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: So you can't donate anyhing expensive? :/
2:41 PM - Psycho29388: and I understand you use the money from donated items to buy keys right?
2:41 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: It's really had to giveaway you know
2:41 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: Yes
2:41 PM - Psycho29388: Well
2:41 PM - Psycho29388: instead of doing that
2:41 PM - Psycho29388: Lets say
2:41 PM - Psycho29388: you get $30 from this giveaway
2:42 PM - Psycho29388: For the next giveaway
2:42 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: I wont get 30 bucks
2:42 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: From who?
2:42 PM - Psycho29388: Lets just say
2:42 PM - Psycho29388: its an example
2:42 PM - Psycho29388: Of my opinion on what I think you should do
2:42 PM - Psycho29388: Lets say all the stuff that was donated to you is sold
2:42 PM - Psycho29388: and you get $30 for it all
2:43 PM - Psycho29388: You could then buy a weapon for $20 and 4 keys for $10
2:43 PM - Psycho29388: If you get lucky with the keys
2:43 PM - Psycho29388: You can keep whatever item you got
2:43 PM - Psycho29388: and then host another giveaway for the $20 weapon
2:43 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: Im having a really hard time understanding
2:44 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: I just suck when it comes to that stuff ;(
2:44 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: God I hate my life
2:44 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: I can't do anything right!!!!!!!!!!! ;((((
2:44 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: and yes im acting weird beacuse i got anxiety
2:46 PM - Psycho29388: Don't worry, you'll be fine.
2:47 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: Im not going in school it was 2 years ago thanks for bullying
2:48 PM - Psycho29388: But to be perfectly honest, I don't really want an AK Red Laminate that much, I just donated what I did because I care. Sure I didn't accept either of your trade offers, but that's because the items you picked out are like $20 in themselves. I already have a black laminate anyways.
2:48 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: I was joking tho :/
2:49 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: But can I please have a ¨good¨ skin so i can start doing giveaways that someone actually gonna give a **** about?
2:49 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: Im so bad at getting cool skins ;(
2:50 PM - Psycho29388: Let me tell you something
2:51 PM - Psycho29388: Awhile ago I spent $25 on keys
2:51 PM - Psycho29388: Guess what I got
2:51 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: My mum would kill me if i did XD
2:51 PM - Psycho29388: The same skin three times in a row
2:51 PM - Psycho29388: then again and again, crappy items
2:51 PM - Psycho29388: all worth less than $2
2:52 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: I bought keys ONE time for 20 euro, the best item i got was a ******* famas doomkitty
2:52 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: The good items i got is spent on real ******* money
2:53 PM - Psycho29388: And heres the thing, you sound like you don't have very good luck with items or anything. Why do a giveaway? Surely you want to keep what good items you have
2:53 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: Well the luck i got in the games is the safe luck as i have irl
2:54 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: This is gonna sound very akward
2:55 PM - WaveXSweCS:GOBackup™: But i just wanna cry, not for the items, not for the game, not for the giveaway, not for school, not for my dog is sick, not for the bulliyng. JUST CRY

What the hell!

Just block the guy and forget about it. I admit that's quite some elaborate scamming method but he's still far from sounding legit... hahah

PS: you really have a huge amount of patience !

A drama scam... Interesting to say the least hahaha

The most elaborated scam I had to deal with was:

"Hey, I give you brass glock for your karambit and some keys, please trade now, thanks"

I use 1 motto when interacting with anyone on the internet. "trust no one". 99.5% of the time these people only want what you have and don't care how they get it. If someone is asking for something it is no longer a donation. They're a beggar at that point.

What do you guys do with items and crates that are worth like 1 to 5 cents?

Is it better to trade, sell, or open them?

I know right? I usually just deal with these types of children.

Anyways, I blocked and removed him from everywhere. I can't believe I actually blindly accepted all his friend requests from everywhere X_X

Hoard them like I do. Play it cool by occasionally opening a few a month. Then within a years time they'll be worth almost $5, even more by next year.

So far his game is to make me feel bad for him in hopes of getting me to give him over $30 worth of items. I just met the kid yesterday and he expects me to trust him?

I have the rule on Steam that unless I know who it is they just get blocked straight away - if someone wants to add me from somewhere then they can message me about it first. That's what groups are for, I can see a bunch of OCN people via the group, don't need them on a friend list unless I really know them. Never trust someone that you don't know with a trade.

You can't really get scammed in a trade though considering you know exactly what you're giving them, and what you're getting back in return. I don't really consider "bad" trade requests scams. Scams are completely different IMO.

Well it's a scam since they're are trying to give you worst items than they are asking for and hoping that you will be ignorant/unaware enough to accept.

I'm pretty sure that people are getting scammed this way sometimes.

It's not a scam in the usual sense, but it is dishonest. I'd still just block them, better that than giving them something then regretting it.

Anyone watching Fragbite Masters? Olof just went nuts in the second half of Mirage.
