Thanks for the info Charlott! I've noticed a lot of the major pets this week in the 23k-32k range on my own server and we rarely get hit by the cheap influx of these pets. I would certainly like to avoid buying dupes, but I really don't see how that is possible anymore. There is really no real way to prove a legit pet from a duped pets, aside from scratching the card our self. Even if we buy from a non-Spammer, chances are it's a resell or something.
Ideally I'd prefer to trade for one of these, so I'm trying to figure out what is and isn't a reasonable offer.
