    Thoughts/help on "picking up gold" for somebody else?

    Had a guy who asked if I took paypal. I don't, so he asked if I would pick up gold he bought off a website because he doesnt have an 07 acc. Fair enough, what I'm selling doesnt need an 07 acc. But do you think this could be some sort of setup? Am I liable for any fraud that guy commits, if he does, just because I picked up the gold with my username and 07 account?

    Seems a little off to me. I don't really want to risk it tbh so I'll probably let the sale fall through.

    I wouldn’t think you would be “liable” for anything except a possibly RWT ban if for some reason Jagex did flag you for rwt, but that’s pretty rare, but not unheard of.


    The reason he wants you to pick it up I would assume is because all he has is PayPal, which you don’t accept.

    So in turn he would have to purchase 07 gold from someone who accepts PayPal and you would pick it up because he does not have an 07 account. Hope that helps at all

    Also, have you offered him/accept other payment methods such as crypto?

    Yep I accept crypto. Not sure if he read my entire thread or not. Anyways that's how I felt liability wise but then I got to thinking what if there was a chargeback and somehow I got dragged into it because I was the one who picked up the gold. Feels weird.

    No if he does charge back it would be between PayPal and whatever payment he has tied to that.
