    Exclamation MANNEQUIN SCAMMED

    Hi uhmm i don't know if this is the right place to post this but just 5 minutes ago, I HAVE BEEN SCAMMED

    And ya know I just got back from this game and my top investment is my set, which is a fire one.

    I just wanna KNOW HOW DID IT WORK?

    so basically, I was selling my set and put it in a mannequin. Then this YNTP guy wanted to buy it. He said he wanted to make sure if the world is safe and asked for access, and so I did gave him.
    Then he removed his access and I put my whole set in the mannequin.

    I WAS HESITATING because something smells fishy, and so I double checked, I even rendered it.

    I have been playing growtopia for a long time now and its been a year or so since I remembered I got SCAMMED.

    and again, I just really want to know HOW did YNTP regain access to the world again when I have seen him removed it and saw no proof of any access?

    (I know it is my fault for being ignorant about this "new" thing, its just that I just got back from this game after a long time and now it seems I don't know how things in "New Growtopia" work now and this has been a lesson haha)

    Thank you btw if you even bothered to read this post
    Hope you have a nice day )

    First of all, I'm terribly sorry about your situation here. You should very much pay close attention to your environment here, as people like to invent these new skemz to fool you.


    Second of all, the title of your thread confused me tho, I thought your mannequin (or mannequins)got scammed....

    Thirdly, selling your entire set through a mannequin is a very risky move. As it could happen like for example your situation here. I prefer myself to sell it one by one. But if you wanna play it safe, carefully place it on a dirt block or something sturdy, like a Golden Block!

    And last but not least, this thread should be in Everything Else

    The same thing happened to my friend a few days ago. Thanks for sharing this though, so other people don't fall for the same thing.

    It's weird though that in the render he didn't have access.

    This. He probably typed out the '[Player] removed his access from [world]' to make you think he actually accepted the access and removed it. The next time you see something fishy (even if it isn't), stay vigilant. Check the chat menu to see if their actions are legitimate or not.

    So your trying to say that you're the one trying to scam the buyers but you did an Ooopsie...

    SELLING SET USING MANNEQUIN IS THE NEW SCAM THING. Why do i say so? Coz i try to buy SCRUB in mannequin but when he take the lock he pulled me.
    But im smart enough to zoom out the screen to see the mannequin. And i didnt see any item in it.. When i say "where is the set?" He banned me...

    Look HOW FAR THE MANNEQUIN IN HIS RENDER.. FAR ENOUGH FOR YOU TO "NOT SEE THE MANNEQUIN".

    You yourself is so dumb to give access to your pray and give him power to outplyay you.

    Scammer vs Scammer this is the good title of it.

    There was no notification that I asked him to have access again though but that could be one of the possible reasons too :<<

    Oh Im sorry for my errors in my title and in placing the post! I'll take note of that!

    You're right, I could have done the ways you mentioned to sell my set! Darn it.
    Thank you for replying tho! I'll definitely remind myself about this when Im doin business.

    That came up to my mind but when I rendered it or check the lock, there is no access already :<<
    Yep, stay vigilant and alert indeed

    SkyNoRain definitely did an OOPSIE with this one tho

    First of all, stop using GENERALIZATION. Doesn't mean someone did it to you, ALL people that are selling sets with mannequins are "scammers".
    Some are just really using that medium in doing honest work/business. But sure I'll give it a pass because such experience is traumatizing tho, but please try not to look everyone as a "scammer" when they're using mannequins.

    Second, yep the mannequin is probably pretty much FAR AWAY like I really can't see it when I enter the world.. SMH Crover

    (Update: Someone said, it depends on the device but still, I was selling by not using any doors and the distance was like 6 freakin blocks man from the white door. 6 freakin blocks man.)

    And finally, I was definitely dumb and I admit that... I wasn't paying attention with my surroundings and focused more on selling my set and making wls rather than making sure its all safe first.

    Scammer vs Oopsie Crover is a better title I must say

    Thank you for replying anyways, I hope ye have a great day sir.

    Why are you selling in mannequin?
    Just put it in dirt so the buyers can see the item you sells.

    Why you give access?

    Yup.. I saw selling set using this style.. Its very cheap set like you can double your wl if you sell the item separately.

    From my small screen phone is it true that i cant see 5 blocks further unless i zoom it out.

    *** is that title man... He is not scammer lol...

    I thought mannequins were better to use but yeah, should have used blocks :<<
    I gave him access because he told me he "wanted to make sure" that my world is SAFE. Turns out I was the one who wasn't safe haha.

    Thanks for the information about the zooming in and out tho, didn't know that because I typically see such distance with using my phone and pc hehe, still thankszzz.
    Hope ye have a nice day!

    In the first place, he never ACCEPTED the access that I gave to him.

    He just TYPED THAT HE REMOVED IT making me think that he actually DID remove it but in reality, he still has the invitation of access in the world after all those times.



    I now get it... gee, I really was not paying attention.

    Thank you again for all those who replied and took time to read.

    Moreover, I hope those who still doesn't know this way of scamming be able to read this.

    I'll rise from this again )
    Have a good day to y'all and see ya

    You just remind me when i got scammed my caged L-Drag (42dls at that time)
    Using same method,he said he wanna make sure the world is safe so i give him access. But actually he just fake the accept and the unaccess notification.

    After i put my ldrag. He accept the access n take my ldrag. Since im already trade him,after i click cancel,i cannot take my ldrag because the annoying "wait for a second" thingy

    You gave him access, but he accepted after you showed all items on that mannequin, which means you didn't notice that he didn't take that access before, probably.

    I hope you'll get your items back someday, mate! ❤
