new scammer spotted 11820940 apparently he scammed a LU BU from someone, just mentioning it here
I'd like to throw my 2 cents in. Although I have no screenshots, I firmly believe this person to have scammed the Lu Bu in question.

I heard his ID being broadcasted and I went over to his page quite soon after the incident happened. As people were telling him to give back the card he would respond on his own page. I am only paraphrasing here, but he would say things like, "Boohoo, I won't be able to trade anymore? Who cares?", "I can just transfer him over to my 2nd account.", and "Things have gone too far, I can't recover from this, why give it back?"

Again, I have no screenshots, and no hard evidence. All I have is what I witnessed with my own eyes. But, I have never spoken out against anyone because I have never seen the proof myself, and I cannot stay quiet in this matter. In my eyes, not only has Herane (11820940) stolen his ex-ally's 6★, but he has all but admitted it and has shown no remorse regarding the incident.

If anyone has questions for me, please PM me, post on my wall ingame, or post here (I check this topic regularly). Thank you for your time in reading this.

Just wanted to chime in as I've been following this off and on as well. I can corroborate with what larrydust is saying as I recall reading similar messages on his wall (though I also have no screenshots as evidence except this one that shows him goading attackers):

Spoiler:
 

However, I found something else interesting. One of his allies, ironmonkey777 (52359622), seems to be defending him. It's possible he felt Herane was being falsely accused of being a scammer, but given Herane's behavior/reaction to the accusations, it's hard to think he's completely innocent. Plus his comment (1st screenshot below) seems to indicate that he condones Herane's actions (or at least, does not seem perturbed by the idea someone he's allied with might be a scammer.) I was curious, so I followed his posts and found that he has an alternate account (MrrRagerr; 61164096), of which he used to ally Herane.

I'm not accusing ironmonkey777 of anything as there's no real evidence of any wrongdoing, but I wanted to share what I've found so far. Screenshots below:

Just an update to the Herane/Lu Bu scam incident if anyone was interested:

(BTW, feel free to correct me if I'm missing/giving wrong information. I'm just filling in what I know.)

Herane was trying to ransom Lu Bu for other 5*s/6*s. Two players (one of which was madgreen777) agreed to each give a 6* (Petra & Reve respectively) in exchange for Lu Bu on behalf of the victim. Not sure what happened at this point as I left for a while, but when I went back to check, Herane upped the ransom to three 6*s.

Negotiations went back and forth for a while. At this point the negotiation was mostly between Herane and madgreen777 and the ransom was for Seth, Vlad, and Petra. Again, I left for a while and when I came back, they finalized the offer (I don't know what it was) and started a trade. However, madgreen777 trade locked him to prevent him from using Lu Bu for the next two days. (Which is why if anyone visits his page at the time of this post, they'll see him with Sigurd as leader instead.)

I suspect the trade lock was the goal all along. While I don't think that's anywhere close to the appropriate punishment for a scammer, I say kudos to madgreen777 for going all out to help his/her ally.

(I can provide screenshots if asked. It's just a lot.)

Subwerd ID 50856219

Was mostly just bystander but he was trying to trade/sell me the stolen card (Edgar). Anyone who uses "U mad" annoys the hell out of me enough to post. Don't feel like writing up a whole lot, but just look at the screenshots to see that this is someone you should avoid.

I then ask him what card he needs to album. disn't really notice he was only asking for high value cards...Elizabeth/Lana/edgar/werewolf. guess it didn't phaze me cuz I was doing this all while at work. so all last night and this morning I've been trying to get my card back.

for one I am not no kid. respect your elders kid!! and second who have I ever talked smack to??? I have been nothing but an honest abiding player.

the only kid here is him. taking advantage of people who have paid for what they have received with the hard earned money that they worked for.

he can't even admit it. seriously must be some juvenile or something.

You forgot the part when I knew you had Edgar cause of your shop, only posted rares cause I knew you didn't have them. Too easy

A dude talks smack to you so you steal from him? Now I now why this guy is saying you're just being juvenile. Some one talking smack to you lol, that's the most redonkulous reason for stealing a card I've ever heard.

Thread locked temporarily for investigation.

Done and resolved.

Thanks for updating this madman. There's still names missing on the main post though that really ought to be on there. Mekomeko6 for example...

That's the scam which the3ptsling has mentioned on the previous page I believe, unless there is another one.

The only way scammers give cards back is if you buy the card back. So unfortunately there's practically no way.

That is most likely the Lu Bu stolen by Herane (11820940). I witnessed much of the fallout shortly after the incident happened. But I would very much like someone with evidence (screenshots, etc.) to post here so that he can officially be added to the scammers list. Found out he has an alternate account named Herane75, I do not know the ID.

Thank you for your quick work. I don't know exactly what was decided in this example, but if the offender was banned (and I hope he was), then I request that you update the "Registry of Offending Users" section of the forum.

Looks like a new scammer on the horizon. Seeing posts about ldyblue669 (51067011) stealing a max Reinhard from Shadowfox1988 (51062797).

Some of my allies have this person allied. Could you provide more screenshots please? Something that shows the trade taking place perhaps? Or the scammer refusing to return the card? I'd like to be able to warn my allies if this guy really did scam someone but all the screenshot shows is you writing on someones wall... and anyone could do that to frame someone :/ (note: I'm not saying that's what you've done, I'm saying we need more proof to rule it out else this cannot be justifiably added to the list in the main post!)

Do you have screenshots for evidence that you can post please? Otherwise it's just your say so and that is not enough.

They get banned from the forum but no one can ban them in-game.
