Scammer Beware "I'm Watching U"

Hi all..I would like to share a scam tactic that I have just experience first hand and though I didn't fall for it, I still thought it would be beneficial to share so all can be aware. I have already share this in general but would like to also share this in wizard community.

Here is what happen :

1. A guy in General and Trade chat claim he want to buy 2 socket pants with 180 vit and intel at 50 mil
2. I do quick search in AH and link him 2 pants(15mil B/O and 34mil B/O) with those property.
3. He claim he want to buy one for those pants which is B/O at 34mil.
4. I told him just to get it in AH. (just a friendly advice)
5. He said he couldnt find it.
6. He gone offline when I try to wisper him " have u found it yet?"
7. 1 min later I try sending mssg and he is online again but not on same trade and chat channel.
8. I whisper him " Dont try to scam people like that" and no reply
9. I recheck the pant and its gone from AH and also noted that the one he say he want to buy have lesser vital and intel stat than the one at 15 mil B/0 which is still there.

Well..Its a scam that pray on ones greed.

Saw that on trade chat.

Thought it was weird putting up a "minimum" price for a wanted item.

Thanks for sharing, very clever way of "scamming" imo less harmful then outright scamming since person still left with an item of value

Pretty common on every trade chat I've been in since the game launched.
