If I may, I know one scam that isn't put up there.
The x2 EXP Buff First Scam.

You: S > 2X EXP OFFER 30 MIN @@@
Buyer: Hey, I'll buy. 3Mil sound good?

You: (Accepts).
Buyer: Meet in Channel 7 (Random).

Buyer: Ok, Pt. Me then Buff First.
You: Kk.

You: (Click Buff).
Buyer: (CC and Leaves Pt.)

You track that person and keep following them but it's no use.

Boom! You've been tricked into giving x2 EXP for free.

That's just the converse of the "S>2x Exp" Scam.

lol some of the scams these days, the sad part is ive seen a few

Name: CPQ TW Scam
Intro: TW is trading wins, but something goes wrong!
Sitiuation: (thru whisper most likely) first round they win,
second round:
Guy 1: Ok your win
You: tro and speed
Guy 1: ok
Game start
they max tro and speed
Guy 1: can you send tros and speed? so i atleast get 500cp?
you: ok *sends tro and speed*
Guy 1: thx!
At the end you have approximately 700cp they have maybe 500cp
Guy 2 leaves! bonus cp is granted to team with leaver
Ends up as 700 (you) to 800 (them) (add or deduce to both if neccisary)

How to Prevent this: If possible tw with longtime guildies, friends, or better yet! DONT! only do it with people you trust and not with people you met 15 minutes ago. Or better yet, if you do send make sure that is it late enuf into the round where they wont be able to beat you by the leaving technique, OR! make sure that one of the people is like 30-32, most people in that lvl range dont kill much so the bonus cp is minimum
