I submited a ticket and this is the response that i got
Game Master Basthonn here and I hope this message finds you doing well.
I am very sorry to hear that this happened to you while playing. :( I have seen many cases of other players that get into the same tough spot after doing some trade agreements with other players and it is never pretty when people scam others.
While this is not a type of play we endorse, as almost no one in the D3 community wants to see this kind of behavior, alas, we do not currently support trade scam transactions such as this, and will be unable to assist with this and we will be unable to reimburse for these types of transactions and agreements. These are considered "at your own risk" trades, and since both players will need to click Approve and all trades require the consent of both players, it is up to those players to make absolutely sure that the trade is correct before clicking the approve button.
With Diablo III, our goal is to provide players the means to effectively protect themselves from scams. Customer Support will not be able to intervene in cases where one player takes advantage of another. Because of this, it is up to every player to be aware of the systems in Diablo III that will protect them and exercise good judgment when trading with others in-game.
The Auction House and secure trade window provide ways to safely trade with other players in Diablo III. Avoid trades that are not conducted through these systems, as both provide ways for players to clearly see the items and amount of gold that will be traded.
Again I am very sorry this happened to you though and I hope in the future you are very very cautious with this type of trade to other players and have no other issues like this one.
Thank you again for contacting us and I hope you continue to enjoy your experience in Diablo III!

Pretty lame since this is an exploit and not a scam.
I got scammed yesterday, I posted almost 24 hours ago and still nothing?...
Frankly this is outrageous, imagine the guy, stealing all the money he wants like that, then buying crazy items.
I know the scammer has at least 2 accounts. Doing so with the level one char, goes on the AH buy stuff on the gold AH, crazy items, over 100M, goes on the Cash AH.
He's not only stealing our 10M(or whatever amounts) he's making money out of it...
I mean not even all the people would come on the forum and post about it. He most have gotten probably over 50 people. 500M, here goes the "safe trade window" and here goes the "go scammer, you can do it and this time you make money out of it"...
"...and since both players will need to click Approve and all trades require the consent of both players, it is up to those players to make absolutely sure that the trade is correct before clicking the approve button."
How can you make sure that the trade is correct when the wrong nummber of items is displayed!? (Try it, it displays the number of all brimstones in your inventory, not the one in the trade window)
He didn't even read your Ticket.
Same thing happened to me a couple days ago, did some poking around and found their policy on trade scams. basically says we provide AH and 'secure trade window' so therefore if you ever get scammed its your own fault.
That moderator ryanlau talked to isn't the only one not paying attention, its all of blizzard. This is an exploit and is made possible because of their 'secure trade window'. I lost 7mil which may not seem like much to people, but was basically all I had. bye bye Diablo 3
