Thank you for not scamming me!
Like a set of rough pocket pickers, Adopt Me! scammers often walk p in pairs, collaborating to help other users free themselves of those burdensome belongings. This cheap scheme is used to bolster the efficacy of other frauds, like “I’ll pay Robux for your XX.”
Do you trust me?
A quite immature one, the “Do you trust me?” scam involves the fraudster – typically, somebody known in reality or a gamer who has invested a long time gaining your trust – asking the victim to show their trust by putting their valuables up against an empty trade box and clicking accept, leaving themselves at the other party’s grace.
Most of the time, this just winds up with you having made an uncontrolled free giveaway for the least deserving members of the Adopt Me! player base.
These scammers will offer to level up your pet for you and hand it back after an agreed amount of time. They will declare that the advantage to them is the reward of money that they will get as they cater to your pets’ requirements.
These scams can take a bit longer to come to fruition and the scammer will frequently try to get your trust by leveling up a lower value pet first and giving it back. But the story, obviously, will not have a happy ending, eventually.
The pet doubling scam is where someone offers to clone your animal therefore offering you two for the cost of one. This is plainly a really attractive offer, especially as the service is normally offered at no charge. To earn your trust they will often show you how their doubling works by asking you to trade them a low-value pet.
The concern is that doubling is not possible in Adopt Me. They merely have a stash of the more common pets in the game, thus. tare only giving you one of them to give you the impression of doubling. If they manage to get you to part with one of your valuable pets they will simply take it and run leaving you without your valued pet.
