THIS THREAD CAN BE CLOSED NOW...
Your post is priceless because:Thanks Assia, but it doesnt matter anymore. I was unlocking it to move it around in my PRIVATE castle. And it just vanished. Same thing happened with my freind when he was locking down his FIRST evnet item ever, the EM Bennu Bones, and the to also vanished. I paged the GM's and their typical awnser "Sorry for your loss, we cannot replace stolen or scammed items". Well what i dont get is Mesanna and other GM's do in fact replace those items or give them something better. Mesanna just recently gave someone a tram castle placed in town guards because that person got scammed and lost a 200 or 300mil rare. Well i to lost a 300mil rare and im not asking for a 5bil worth castle or anything like that. I just want my statue back because my dad gave it to me as a gift and therfore has sentimental value to me. I dont know what i did to deserve such bad luck lately but i must have did something. I might quit over this if nothing is done, i already lost 1bil worth if you add up all the stuff that has been stolen from me. I sent 3 complaints to the GM's over an hour and a half ago, and im being ignored i guess. I know someone who is freinds with Richard Garriot (Lord British) in real life, so if the GM's cant do nothing then maybe he can. We players work hard for our items and the GM's put it off like its no big deal. So i dont know what will happen.
Alexander of ATL said:I bought the statue at a discounted price because the previous owner is a family member of mine in real life.
Your dad sold to you one of the most heavily duped items in UO history!!!Alexander of ATL said:I just want my statue back because my dad gave it to me as a gift and therfore has sentimental value to me.
Again, priceless!!Alexander of ATL said:I know someone who is freinds with Richard Garriot (Lord British) in real life, so if the GM's cant do nothing then maybe he can
Ouch. Sorry to hear that Alexander. Always use detect hidden, even if you think you're alone and you keep your doors locked. Hopefully this will help someone else from falling for the same thing.To whoever it was that grabbed it when he unlocked it at his castle, we'll be watching to see if one goes up for sale so I hope whoever stole it did so for personal use...
Player demanded that they lose their ability to get justice with the introduction of trammel, insurance and easier stealthing rules.I think the thing that bothers me most about this situation is the culture where people think it's ok to do this. It's almost a common event now to see where someone got this valuable rare scammed/stolen from them in a rather deceitful manner. Be it scamming or hiding and picking it up when then unlock it.
I find it really disturbing how people can steal from others on this game and there is no path for retribution or recovery, there is no justice.
Justice has nothing to tram or fel. It has to do with the ability to track and find out who actually performed the deed and impart justice. Justice isn't just killing the character.Player demanded that they lose their ability to get justice with the introduction of trammel, insurance and easier stealthing rules.
Actually justice was killing the character, looting your item back and taking anything they had too.Justice has nothing to tram or fel. It has to do with the ability to track and find out who actually performed the deed and impart justice. Justice isn't just killing the character.
I see where your coming from and i take no offence to your accusation. But yes, my dad did give it to me....... but....... I HAD TO PAY HIM BACK IN CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TIME, so basically i did buy it. I figured that information wasnt really needed in this thread but to clear up that accusation i posted it in this post. And what you saw was me CONSIDERING selling it. I never did once advertise at luna bank or any bank that i was selling it. A guy was indeed advertising and his name was "Corruption" but weirdly enough when i logged on he had the very same armor but with a name, "Perfection", he was addvertising that he was buying one. Me being stupid i partied him and we were talking. He offered me a large amount for it and i actually would have traded it for that amount. But......... when i went to my house to unlock it, it vanished. And the thing is, i didnt know anyone where it was. And yes, when i did make the statement above when i said i would sell, this offer blew my mind and i wasnt thinking at that time. Well as everyone says if its to good to be true, dont fall for it, agian i wasnt using my head. Now... i dont know if that story about my dad is true or not, but i posted this because i wanted to be clearer and to clean up that accusation.So not only did Alexander change his story 3 times in this thread but I personally saw him trying to sell this statue to a guy in Luna a couple days ago. Seems legit...
Also Sebastion tried to sell me an Invuln Blue dye for 10 mil claiming it was ultra rare. Being a con artist must run in the family.
