What's the Barter Index?
The Barter Category was created so that us fellow forumers could trade among ourselves. It is not to be misused for purposes such as selling as posted in the following thread:
Now, this section mainly focuses on people coming together to try and trade things like guns with each other. It mainly focuses on the trades of weapons through the Weapon Transfer System. What is this transfer system? Check the Url Below
So What's Going On?
Now the main reason why this thread was conducted. With the new trade system kicking in, there have been several people going around trying to scam as well as many people that have been getting scammed. Now, to prevent such unethical matter, this thread should give a slight hint on what can happen to scammers if they really wish to choose this path or how this can be avoided if you do not wish to be a victim.

Will be punished, alts can lead to mains
Possible Suspensions or Bans

Others could occur depending on the situation

How Can I avoid getting scammed?
Do not trade with people you are not familiar with
. It is a simple rule that almost everyone should be following. You SHOULD NOT
, be simply trusting people and relying on the fact that they SAID
they would trade you a gun. It is best to trade with members you are familiar with as well as trusted forumers. Do not go first unless you know the person well and many people can vouch for that person. In addition, prior to the deal being completed, ask the person to go in game to show you that they have the gun. It's a good way to know if the person is actually able to supply you with the weapon of your demand or not.
Look at their profiles, mainly join dates (should not be a troll account)
Check the post count, most trusted forumers have 200 +
Ask others before making a deal, get them to have vouchers ready
Look at the Wall of Shame to be certain they are not on the list
Something that is crucial to keep in mind is that if in any case this scenerio does apply to you. Aeria will not be responsible for reimbursing what was "Stolen" from your account
. It was all authorized by you, which is why you must take this very seriously in order to avoid fraud.
Why should I believe you?
Many people think that scamming isn't a bannable offense. Conversely, those who have got scammed believe they will be able to get their guns back if they send in a ticket. No big deal right? Well that's in correct for both cases. If you are caught scamming, you will be punished. In addition, to back up my previous statement where I have stated that Aeria would not be reimbursing the accounts of the victims, please take a look at the screenshot below
