Common Private Shop Scams
- Box Scam:
Players may say they are selling boxed items but only selling an individual item. They may even try to sell the single item close to the boxed price to make you think it is a good deal.
To avoid this scam - Please remember: The displayed price is the price for a single unit of that item.
