So, a seemingly trustable person took away your precious pet without giving you the promised item in exchange? Yes, my friend, you are the victim of a scam that hundreds of players have faced before. The Adopt Me team has repeatedly tried to make people aware of scamsters by blogging about these issues regularly. But, users still fall prey to false promises. However, Adopt Me has a system through which you can report any trading fraud. If you think you were banned by mistake, you can check this article over here to know ways to report it. Remember that trading of Robux and other game items is not acceptable; players can face a ban if they are involved in trading of this sort.
If you think you were scammed, this article will tell you how to report, fix and resolve it.
How to report fraud in Adopt Me?
To report a fraud, you will need to have a trading license. A trading license is also required to trade ultra-rare and legendary items. Once you obtain a trading license by appearing for a license test, you can access your trading history from the past 30 days. Using this trade license, you can report any trade from your history to the Adopt Me support.
We request you to please report legitimate reports. Too many false reports can disable your ability to report any trade after that.
How to fix a scam?
After reporting fraud, you must be wondering how to fix the damage, i.e., get back the lost item. Unfortunately, you cannot get back an item or pet which you traded once. Items lost once cannot be retrieved in your account. So, we suggest users be extra careful before saying yes to exchanging an item unofficially. There’s nothing anyone can do to fix a scam except reporting it.
How to resolve an Adopt Me scam?
Users who faced a scam are suggested to report any suspicious activity on the platform as soon as possible. The Adopt Me team is prompt in investigating reports and, if proper proof is found against a player, will impose a ban immediately. As mentioned above, the fraud report system of Adopt Me was set up to report scams and not to refund lost items to scammed players. It is entirely your responsibility to keep your belongings safe.
We request players of Adopt Me to be careful while trading any precious item with someone they don’t know officially. You can learn more about how to protect yourself from scams here.
