This made me LOL so hard because i know the guy who invented that

Holy crap. I just read through this. Kudos to you, you're actually VERY well informed... Me and my friend came up with half of those before they were spread, leeched, and noobified. Notably the trust scam. Followed by the account giveaway scam (which we named the 'fish' scam). Like I said, you are very well informed, and i respect a fellow intellectual unlike most other dumb people playing maple.

However most of those scams are outdated and can no longer be used. There is however one of mine which still has not been leeched or spread
And there is also one detail which you misinterpreted. One of which only a dedicated and successful scammer would know. It is the key to scamming and raises the success rate immensely. However I cannot tell you what for obvious reasons [/quote]

Ummmmmmmmmmmmm.... good for you?

For the zrun scam, I'm not on sleepywood, yet I don't scam. I've had countless zruns. Of course, my run does include trustworthy people. Anyways, just wanted to say that not all "Offical Sellers" are on Sleepywood.

Expensive Auto Buy Scam (Maya made this name up)

I almost got scammed once, but in a different technique. He was WG 14 att for 250m, asked me to go to ch 13 room 5, he was setting up a store and suddenly a guy came and spam "please let me buy the WG, i need it", it will gives you the thought "i have to get this item faster". Then the stored are set-up, you enter, the mule enters, you clicked on the items real fast, bought it, happy, 5 seconds later you figured out it was a 4 att WG.

Maybe not, but Sleepywood is really the only way you can find a trustworthy seller besides word of mouth.
