so... what happened towards the end? That's where I got confused. Although I have to agree - scammers deserve no better than what you just did lol. I can't believe they went along with it and still paid you for it though lol. Although I guess they didn't have a choice...

Well, my plan was to put some pressure on him to pay anyway, because I did not believe he was ever going to pay me more neopoints after I gave the potion to him. If you saw his profile... No shop, No special/dressed/trained pets, no gallery, no trophies, only 1 game played,...
Even when he came to me claiming he would pay 15m... A bit too good to be true no?

So my plan was actually to accept his neopoints and to put some pressure on him. I was never going to scam him from his neopoints though. I just wanted to make him feel bad for a second. I wanted to see whether he actually was about to go through with the deal.

What happened in short:
*He contacted me claiming he wanted to pay 15m for a darigan draik morphing potion (later 10.8m like everyone else)
*He only wanted split trades
*He wanted to receive the potion after he payed me 2.4m (later 3.2m).
*I accepted the money, but wanted to finish the deal before giving him the potion
*He freaked out because he seemed to have no more then 3.2m neopoints!!!! He believed I would never give him his neopoints back unless he payed the other half of the deal!!
*He started neomailing around to borrow neopoints.
*I started an auction for 24h (NF only) with the potion in it for 7.6m (high interest)
*He payed the full price in the end. I found out he was a scammer after all and he didn't even have the neopoints to buy the potion in the first place!!!

I would probably have given him back his neopoints if he really couldn't pay or if he really started freaking out. Although I would have reported him for scamming. I'm still unsure whether or not I would report this guy now.
