    Exclamation Attention Growtopians! A new scam had arrived! To players, moderators and developers.

    Hi. I post this forum on purpose because I want to inform you about a new scam! Every time I log in to Growtopia, I saw most of the people broadcast about a shop discount or quitting shop. But, when I come to their shop, I found out that the owner was away for a long time and many people had come to the owner's world, saying "IT'S A SCAM!". The owner did this to earn Growtokens, there are Growtokens scammer! This is a new scam so be careful! If you saw an existing discount/quitting shop scam, please report it to a mod! So that the scammer will be banned, duct taped or cursed! To people who used this new scam method, don't do it! It's illegal for you, get Growtokens in ordinary way, not the scam way! To other people, I'm sorry to be mad at you but I'm just informing you about the new danger and not to be scammed. So, have a safer place in Growtopia!

    I wouldn't say that its new, it's a token trap, not really a scam.

    If he is not stealing something from you then it is not a scam.

    Dude, it's not a scam. He's stealing your time, which is NOT illegal.

    Thats not really new
    You can quickly see if someone is trying to snitch some Tokens when:
    - He (the owner) is buying "All Pickaxes for 2wls" or simular ridiculous "offers"
    - He is on "BRB" and never goes off it
    - He never trades but spectates the people and keeps saying "who" and "trade"
    - He is not in the World he just broadcasted on / leaves it shortly
    For Shops:
    - Just use your mind, why would someone place e.g. a Golden Block on a Huge Lock, just to sell it for 2 small locks.
    - If one item seems suspicous check others, if there are multiple of those suspicous offers just leave the world, maybe warn newcomers beforehand

    Dont waste your time...
