hey theres one you forgot aswell.i cant explain it properly cause i was da victim so bare with me.
some guy partys you at cpq. you accept. he ccs to a channel where its deserted. he starts dropping all these godly items and picks em back up. he then asks you if you got any good items. u go up next to him on one of the platforms at the top. as soon as u drop an item, he go's into the pq and quikly bak out. suddenly he is in your spot and your in his. he picks up your item straight way, leaves party and logs out. obviously u dont like it but u realise uv been scammed. i think that this scam is rarely used cause iv never herd of it but it justr happened to me yesterday. lukily it wasnt such a good item lol...

That's just a variation of "Drop Game Cheating".

Thanks for the guide! Someone almost convinced me into dropping my Steelys (which, ironically, I got from a legit drop game) in the Kerning Hospital. I'm not a sucker from drop games anymore since reading this.

got scammed by my **** friend....
lost only clean red cross chain and nakamaki tho

also, if you need to transfer, and the chars are on the same account , use the storage. i ddo it all the time, but its 4 items at a time.
