**Name:** The best but worst MTS deal around.
**Intro:** Great deals arent always that great.
**Situation:** Your browsing in the mts, and see a great price. 2 60% glove att scrolls for just 1k nx! You have 15k nx and decide to buy it. But somthings wrong, you only have 4k nx left! It turns out what appeared to be 1k nx, was actually 11k nx, with the first 1 being blocked by the end of the guys name (usually ending in an "M". You've been had.
**How to prevent this:** If any letter crosses over into the price section, always look closely at that/those letters. there is usually a very small portion of the number in the price sticking out of the letter blocking it. Also, if its too good to be true, it probably is.[/quote]

I do not scam, but I just made this up.

Someone makes a shop, and they put in something that is a really good price (Like a chaos scroll for 55,555,555 mil or something).
Then, they surround the item so that it is in the middle.
Then, surround the 55mil chaos scroll with a lot of other chaos scrolls, but make them 555,555,555.
Then someone smegas or something that you are selling a chaos scroll for 55mil in your shop.
Everyone runs to it, clicks super fast and gets scammed.

This one is kind of expensive, so something cheaper would work too like steelies for 2mil and 22mil or something.

No, I do not scam nor do I support scamming, but I just made this idea up.

It's already on there.

**Expensive Auto Buy Scam (Maya made this name up)**
[i]This section was written by Maya[/i]

**Intro**
This is why you don't carry all your mesos with you. Ahem. Storage.

**The Situation**
You see a smega saying that there's a ton of great items for 300 meso each at a guy's store. You CC and go to the FM and see a crowd of people trying to get in one store. The store says to keep clicking and pressing enter on the shop, and you really want to get in so you do what it says. It's full, so you wait and wait. Eventually, you get in, you saw the box pop up and you pressed enter so you've bought something. You get out of the shop and find 20 mill mesos gone and a wooden wand in your inventory. You've been had

**How to Prevent This**
Don't listen to those naughty smegas. End of story. You can stop this by waiting around at the spot of the scene and looking to see what people are saying. Once you see a spot open in the store, go in by clicking on it a couple of times, but not enough to buy something and check what was sold first and take your time and study the item first. Of course, if it's something like a level 40 wand that you need for cheap, buy it.[/quote]
