My coppa’d little niece just got this. No message. Normally I’d leave out names, but I think the world needs to know that even people who are ‘CS smart’ enough to be chosen as a site helper will try to scam users who do not know any better.
Why do you automatically assume they were trying to scam the other, especially if they happen to be on the staff. Not every staff member is an expert in rarities or trades.
Those dragon eggs have two ‘more common’ rare outcomes which are worth about that. Because no one knows what it’s going to end up being until it starts growing, that’s why it can result in these types of trades, it doesn’t automatically mean they’re scamming.. It would only be a scam if they lied and said it’s worthless or automatically worth that alone, which she did not.
Factoring in demand, you should know damn well those dragons (the two “more common ones” you mentioned are 2009 rares) are absolutely not worth a handful of low-worth 2010 uncommons. Come on now.
Anyone with a brain can see this is a horrible trade, and considering the fact that it was sent to a COPPA’D user is even worse. It’s not a scam under the strictest of definitions, but it IS taking advantage of those who are young and might not know better, and to me, that’s worse than scamming.
