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 (including AJ mods/cheats) or vice-versa. If you want to trade your art for things from AJ, you must advertise and arrange these trades on AJ or another site that allows them.

We've banned these trades as there was a large number of AJ/CS scams going on. I'm sure the majority of you are honest traders, but to protect everyone we will no longer allow these to happen.

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!
