Trades involving AnimalJam are now banned on CS (must read!)

Postby Tess » Mon Jan 20, 2014 7:26 pm

Unfortunately, we are no longer allowing any off-site trades involving Animal Jam.

You may not arrange any trades offering CS pets/items/C$/accounts in return for AJ things (or vice-versa). This includes trades for AJ mods/cheats.

The reason for this ban is because there have been a ridiculous number of scammers ripping people off in these trades over the past couple of months. I'm sure the majority of you are honest traders but we have never seen such high numbers of off-site trade scams at any point in CS history.

Anyone we find to be scamming users in fake off-site trade deals will be permanently banned.

This is also a reminder to always make sure you have clear communications with your trading partners on CS. If they have made you specific promises in trade messages or PMs then we have some evidence here when things go bad, and may be able to help.

Avoid trading with new accounts (accounts which joined only a couple of months ago). If an account is fairly new, that could be a sign that it was created just to scam people with, and they could be keeping the pets they steal on another (older) account. It might also mean that they were banned recently for similar behavior and have had to start over on a new account. New accounts have less to lose from being banned, so they are more likely to engage in risky behaviors such as scamming or cheating.

If something goes wrong, report the issue to staff as soon as possible. Please describe the problem clearly, and link us to the account(s) or trade(s) which you are reporting.

Wow, really scammers? I have known there were a lot of scammers on animal jam, but I was hoping they would stay there :c Nope! They come on CS and ruin everything for me... AGAIN! It's not your fault, Tess, but I see why this had to be done.

Thank you for posting this, I will be putting it in my rules now and making sure everyone's pets and items are safe. Off-site trading was a joy for a lot of members but it is probably best that it's not allowed now to prevent lots of scams. c:

Awww.... That's the only way I was going to become rare again!!! I am so sad! :( I think I might quit now due to offsite trading with AJ Being banned. Yep. I quit Animaljam.
I have decided to stop collecting pets for myself! I will only keep a couple, ones that I really want. Keep that in mind while trading with me!
