So I'm a new user on these forums, hoping to Make some Money. When suddenly I receive a Trade With Caution rank on my profile for not having a home IP.. So I do the logical thing and ask how to get it removed, through the staff that gave it to me to avoid unwanted suspicion from current/future clients. I was then kindly redirected to another thread about the rank and how to get it removed ect. (I haven't received any PMs from current or newer clients since it was issued.) No Home IP - Trade with caution (TWC) After Reading the thread, I thought to myself "this must be jokes. There's no way they are actually expecting people to leak IP addresses to the website just to avoid looking suspect." So I continued to scroll down when I noticed something. THIS IS WHERE IT GETS SCARRY.. The first person on the top of the list (presumably a staff of some sort) was issued a Do Not Trade. Imgur So I looked into what this rank means and typed "Sythe DNT" into my search engine and guess what?.. First thing I saw was a link that redirected me to a thread about a staff issuing an invalid DNT. Could it be a blackmail behind the sean? There's no way to truly know but what I want to point out here is that the staff also has a DNT Rank on his account.. For those of you that don't know, Do Not Trade ranks are given to people that have scammed in one way or another at some point. DNT - A World Why is this relevant you might ask? Well I continued to message the staff that issued me the Trade With Caution rank when he sent me a message claiming my IP wouldn't be seen by the public, only by staff.. Imgur Now you might be able to see how this is all starting to fall together. Why would I trust my IP with staff when they are people too and are capable of scamming like anyone else. More importantly, Why would I be told to trust someone with my IP in the 1st place.. IT GETS DEEPER So I get suspicious myself and look into this "staff" that's issuing me the Trade With Caution. He seems to be affiliated with the same staff I found on the thread he linked me to earlier that scammed someone. Imgur Imgur I'm not sure what this all means, if there is something bigger going on or no. The real Question here is, Why am I supposed to trust these "staffs" with my IP and Risk getting hacked or something. But cant be trusted for not sharing my Personal information on a gaming black market, when I haven't given anyone a reason to not trust me? I have personally lost THOUSANDS TO HACKERS and don't intend to put myself in a position where that's a possibility again. I just don't get this. So I'm going to leave it up to you guys, the thread users.. Do you think its fair to force people into giving up vital information that puts you at risk of being hacked to avoid suspicion? You decide.
