Scammed while selling dethy from blizzcon code

Post by Aviectus » November 28th, 2013, 6:08 am

As the title says last night i have been scammed while trying to sell my code for deathy the murlock.
pretty much at this point i am all lost due to the fact i am never going to get back the code and the money we agreed with the player. ( i dont even think blizzard will hurt a hair from his head )


what i should do for this? A ticket is already on queue. i dont have any hopes....

Where was the agreement made? If in game Bliz will log check the person, see they are scamming, and he will get banned/code removed.

If it was outside of game...well, they may not touch him at all. Because they personally have no proof.

It's a huge risk to trade with anyone in situations like your own.

They will most likely remove the code from his account, but considering their stance on code trades for in-game items/currency, you'll probably neither get the code back or the gold that the other party agreed to pay you for it. :(

Yes, please tell more information so that no one else will get scammed.

They have gotten more stern, at least on the forums, about trading CEs for in-game currency. Cash would make it trickier too but you can always hope!

Curious - did Blizzard say that selling/trading Blizzcon codes was against TOS? I totally missed that. I know that selling in game the store purchased code was OK - so wouldn't that be the same?
