    Default Is stealing a scammer wl legal?

    I bet everyone did or tried to do this.
    A scammer telling you to go to <your-name>+1 and telling you to place a wl and you say: "I don't have" so he gives you one then u place and ban him. My question is: is it legal?

    It's big brain time

    Tbh for real, I think it's legal since the scammer gave it to you.

    No, you're essentially scamming a scammer, thus making you the scammer. this didn't use to be a big deal when worlds like SELLKEY825 existed, and scamming a scammer, or in this case, scam failing was not very bannable, but kinda looked down upon. But on the other hand, the scammer gave the wl to you, doesn't mean you have the right to take it though.

    scam
    /skam/
    noun, INFORMAL
    1.
    a dishonest scheme; a fraud.

    My guess is probably not, since technically you're scamming them. But I'm not going to lie, it IS fun

    But let's say, your Diamond Lock get scammed, and you somehow trick the scammer into giving it back, then I guess it's legal?

    Well it's been said many times that if you drop or give away your items then they don't belong to you anymore. That means he gave you his wl and you can do whatever you want with it, completely legal

    It's not scam, it's a scam fail. Remember those scam fail videos back in the day. Man, those were great.

    You shouldn't scam anyone, even if that person is a scammer. Don't do what others are doing, if they're doing something wrong, you simply don't follow.

    I mean I would guess that it's his choice to give you a wl and since he doesn't really state a reason it's a donation?

    It's technically scamming as you're taking his/her belonging without him/her approval.

    It's as same as giving someone devil wings to try them and he/she leaves instantly and doesn't give it back.

    I hunt those type of guys. I literally got 10 wls in one hour by just being in BUYMAGPLANT and these scammers would come up to me.

    To be objective, it's considered stealing. It doesn't have to be a scammer even. I am low-key annoyed at GrowTubers posting scam fails. Stopping them from scamming is one thing, but taking from them whilst thinking they'd stop is different. If you have ever done that, ask yourself this: what makes you different? We're living in the generation of equality so this time, disregard their situation as a scammer and your situation as a supposed victim.
