Jammers not Scammers!

We all want Jamaa to be a great place to be, and we are all a part of making it that way. We should all be caring and kind to our fellow Jammers, but it doesn't always end up that way. Have you ever been scammed? Lots can be done to prevent it, with just a little care. These tips may come in handy to prevent future scamming:
  1. When a Jammer says to click a certain spot or run place, it isn't a good idea to do so. It's a way to click accept, even though there is a checking button available now.
  2. Don't trade items by sending through the mail, use the trading list. Don't trade back through mail, it can give them a chance to steal.
  3. Be wary of Jammers who have full number names, these are often created to make it hard to trace them.
  4. Don't trade for items you aren't sure if you want, Jammers aren't expected to trade back if you change your mind. 
  5. No matter how much you trust a friend, they may turn during a trade through mail, you never know until too late.
BE A JAMMER, NOT A SCAMMER!

    Anyone can be a spirit Jammer! All you need to do is spread the word about the blog and answer questions from curious Jammers here on the site!
    Happy jamming!

    I've been scammed before as well, it's no fun! I hate suspecting Jammers, scamming just weakens our bonds. It hurts other Jammers; it's no excuse to do scamming as revenge, you're just spreading the hate! Help others and make Jamaa a better place.

    You are right, there is no value to rare items, they are just digital. Sadly not everyone thinks this, and that's when scamming happens. It's nice that you're are so down-to-earth. I do the same thing if I'm scammed, report once, and that's it. Sometimes I can find the person and am able to talk about it with them.

  13. I have been scammed before, for a glove! Non-member glove, in fact. I was trading for a different colored glove, but after I sent it by mail(at that time the new trading system was not made), and when I finished, the jammer was GONE!!! I really am great full for a jammer that gave me he glove for something that was still in store, and still is!

    There are those exceptionally kind Jammers out there, who just want to help others a bit. That makes them happy. Hopefully we can learn a bit from each other, and make Jamaa, and the world, a better place.

  17. One time, when I was a nonmember, someone said they would buy me a membership but I had to give them my password to buy it for me. I really didn't trust them. But somehow they kept following me and knowing where I was even though I wasn't there friend. They got so annoying I just gave them my password. And they ended up steeling all my rares. -_-' So theres another kind, too. Don't give anyone your password! No matter what they say!

  20. Snowyclaw, I already did. I hinted that their options for reporting were a little too vague and casual. I said that I had been scammed before and always report scammers or people who are saying "scammer-like-things" like "Send me rares and I'll send you a glove!!" (which is so obviously a scam). AJ HQ replied saying that the 4 options they have pretty much cover any need to report, vague or not. And that I was using the right option for scammers by selecting "Safety". I hate scammers so much! I know that the items on AJ are virtual. They are just animations, and real life is way more important than a game. But still. It hurts to know that there are people out there who would stoop so low as to do that to people. And I'm sure all of the people who have been scammed have been sad, very sad. I spend a whole hour looking for the person who scammed me!!! Sigh. That's a lesson for all of you!! BE A JAMMER, NOT A SCAMMER!! And I have never, and will never ever scam someone to get revenge. I'm just not like that.

  28. I've been scammed twice actually. One is a Frankenstein mask and a clover. I think his username is Skyrim24, but he returnedd the Frankenstein mask and left with the clover but it's better anyways... And sometimes I get too nice (actually, most of the time) and start trading a rare for a simple thing. But then I started to regret that T.T and now if someone begs me I just refresh the page and change servers.

  29. guys here are some tips...
    1. it is illegal to give membership codes online.
    2. never fall for scams! do not trust anyone, even ur buddies!
    3. some scammers do the bribe to one jammer then they spread the word, then those people get scammed without the jammer knowing.
    i hope this helps guys! i hv a complete list of scammers and i would never do revenge by scamming it back... i would jus send ajhq an email bout them :P problem solved and guys watch out for lupinar (if shes not banned already) she scams pplz passwords by using her account and a hacked account she got by scamming! (she even used my bff's account, luvy23!)

  31. I think we should all make another Jamaasian Movement, like we all where one color in specific to represent the humongous amount of Jammers who got scammed and/or hacked. If you like this idea send me a message my username is EvilGummyBears101 you DO NOT have to add me :3

  32. You know, not trading back isn't a form of scamming at all. The person traded, and then another person accepted. If they don't want to trade back they don't have to. It's the person who originally traded fault, because they should have thought more carefully about the trade and made sure they really wanted to trade the item(s).

  38. Uh i made a BIG mistake. All my friends say im super nice!! But i can't help to be nice to EVERYBODY. Once this girl had a red short wrist So i offered (BLUE BETA MASK) (PILGRIM HAT) (WHITE TAIL) (CLAW MACHINE) For the wristband. She accepted and i was like Thank you :) So she comes up to me, some other day, And says OMG that was not a fair trade! trade back you lier! No matter what they say to me, Im always WAYY too nice. So i traded her back cause she said she was goign to tell peeps to report me.. that made me REALLY nervious. I Did trade back. About a couple weeks later she tells me to go to her den? I Go there. Scammer: Hey wanna flash.. Like are spike collars? Me: (Totally a scam..) Hmm ok but if you have the program i swear (Im not that stupid to flash that cause this new "program" lets you accept flash trades. In like 1 sec I didn't have much but knowing that she was a scam, i traded a rare top hat. she accepted under 1 sec!!! Scammer: Good one. Me: HAHAHA i knew you were a scammer! you have the program!!!!! Later trotting around Jamaa, I Thought to myself.. Hey she didn't deserve the trade back for the red wrist.. She is just a greedy pig.. After that (I Know i over react to such a virtual game.. I went into a depression because of her (WAYY over reaction.) i Was thinking about (killing) Myself. Sorry if this doesn't get posted. P.S Snowyclaw i <3 you. Btw you have someone changing your den XP ~Starjump237 I Can't stand to loose another rare and i swear if i WAS ever ever hacked, i would probally kill myself. Sorry if too much information.

  39. If a scammer sais: "Best goft gets something from trade", DONT SEND ANYTHING! Ask them what thing are they giving out and if they say "Random", it is pure Scam. They might have some Epic Items along with some Noob items on their trade to Fool you.

  41. hey guys! :D I got scammed a couple a months back. well it was more hacked than scammed. I think this hacker used a program to get my password because my password is really hard to figure out. anyway I changed my password and everything, but all my spikes, top hats, some of my worns, my spike wrists, my beta porchswing, headdress, everything, was gone. they left a couple of good things I think didn't know was beta. they left rare bows and a couple of worns, and my I gave my bestie a spike wrist (I know her in real life so she wasn't going to scam me) and she sent it back. but I didn't want some good items that were left to get scammed. so I gave everything to my bestie bvbscreamo (yes we are emo/punk/rock/goth/scene chics. I didn't really "cry" or whine over my hacked account because I was going to quit anyway and I was getting a little to old. but I do get on from time to time to see online friends (screamoking, bvbscreamo, chocolate, and some others you might not know. Be VERY VERY VERY careful guys. there IS a scammer on the lose. you might want to make another spare account. also this hacker wasn't fman because not everything was gone and I didn't have an fman animal thing. this is a WARNING. (my user is Stringerh by the way if you want to search me) :D have a nice day :D
