Protect yourself against scammers. Read about trading safely in Rocket League.

Trading Safely In Rocket League

7 days ago by FightMe in Rocket League News

Most people are good-hearted and would never scam you. But whenever there is a community built around trading valuable items, there will always be some bad people who break the rules. Be sure to follow all of the advice below so that you know how to avoid getting scammed in Rocket League.

 

Do not fall for phishing scams

Phishing is when scammers create fraudulent websites that ask you to enter the username and password of your Rocket League account. If you sign in to a scammer’s phishing site, the scammer will know your login info and will use it to steal your account. 

Phishing sites often look similar to known and trusted sites, in an attempt to appear normal and believable. For example, many phishing sites look like the real Steam, Epic Games, Playstation, and RL Garage login pages, to trick you into thinking they are legitimate. Always check links for spelling errors or extra letters, and stay away from unfamiliar sites.

To protect yourself against phishing:

Do not click on suspicious links, even if you are told you will get free items or credits.  Do not click on links when adding other players to trade, except for the gamertag links on their profile. Use the in-game invite system to add players to trade without clicking on unfamiliar links. Do not enter your personal information into any websites. Only sign in to your Rocket League account from the game launching client installed on your device.


Do not fall for trust trade scams (risk & reward)

Never trust another player with your inventory, expecting them to pay you in a future trade. Many scams happen when you trust other players to pay you at a later time. Only agree to deals that can be completed in one trade. Avoid all trades that are based on trust. 

Do not pay entry fees to other players for any reason. Avoid the following:

Wagering on 1v1 Rocket League matches (or any other type of match) Paying to enter giveaways or raffles Paying another player to build a blueprint for you Do not trade with players who claim they have redeem codes for popular items such as Fennec, Octane, Nissan Skyline, Alpha items, or Black Market decals. These codes do not exist.

Do not trade with players who want your help making YouTube or TikTok thumbnails. These players offer you a reward for accepting a trade you don't agree to, claiming that you can cancel the trade before it completes. Scammers have ways of preventing you from cancelling a trade once it has been accepted. So never accept a trade unless you agree to it being completed, because you might not be able to cancel.

Do not trade with players who say they can duplicate your items. Duplication is not possible.

Do not let another player borrow your items for any reason.

Avoid any player who asks to try your items on their car.  Avoid any player who can’t pay you until later because their credits are time-locked. Do not trade with players who claim to have glitched items. Glitched items do not exist. Do not accept a trade if any items or credits appear to be missing, even if your trade partner says they are there. Do not trade items or credits for real-world money. Real-money trading puts you at risk of scams and other illegal activity.

Do not trade with players who request a middleman when it is not needed. If you are trading less than 24 items or less than 100,000 credits with another player, it can be done without a middleman.

Do not buy, sell, or share accounts. It can easily lead to your account being compromised.

 

Ignore fake trades

Scammers use fake trades to trick you into overpaying for inexpensive items.

Do not buy an item to resell for profit if only one player is making a nice offer for it.

Only buy an item to resell for profit if several players have made similar offers for it so you know it is actually valuable.

Avoid any player who offers to reward you for finding and purchasing an item for them. If you buy the item, the player will not reward you, and you will lose all of the credits that you spent. Never buy an item, expecting to be rewarded afterwards. Players can find items on their own without your help, and they know this. Do not put your inventory at risk.


Do not fall for item swap scams

Beware of players who remove items or credits from the trade window, hoping that you won’t notice.

Do not accept a trade unless you are sure what’s being offered is correct.

Check that items are correct by using the Show Details button. This is a button that shows all of an item’s information so you can be sure your trade partner is giving the correct item.  

If you play on console, the Show Details button is the left joystick button on your controller.  If you play on PC, there is a button labeled Show Details that exists at the bottom-left area of the trade window. Do not be fooled by players who cancel a trade at the last second to quickly change their offer. If your trade partner pauses a trade after you’ve accepted, always use the Show Details button again to make sure they did not remove something valuable.


Do not buy the wrong trade-up items

Players who buy trade-up items can use the Show Details button to make sure they only buy items that trade up in the correct way. 

Non-crate items say "exotic", “import'', or "very rare" and do not have any additional crate or series information.  Crate items and items from a specific series say which crate or series they are from.

 

Thanks for reading. Have fun trading, and stay safe!

I already submitted a report and i talked with someone on rl-garage but they said there was nothing they could do because i had no proof other than a screen shot of the grey wheels and a screen shot of me saying "look, dude, you scammed me." and it saying that he blocked me at the top of the screen. Is this the end? Is there anything else i can do??

SDANIAAL15, RLG is working on an Auto Reply feature that everyone can use. People who are already using this feature were allowed to test it, so they are not breaking the rules by using it. The feature is currently closed for further testing. However, if anyone is abusing this feature to scam others, please report them and we will definitely take the appropriate action against them.

If you have been scammed, I recommend submitting a ticket to the Psyonix customer service. I was scammed for my credits and a bunch of items and got them back by contacting the Psyonix customer service. Keep in mind, though, once you get your items back they will not be tradable anymore.

Also never let people add items that you don't want or didn't ask for. I got scammed for 3.7k by this when I was newer. Always tell people to only put in the item that you want, and if they add more, then press show details and stay on that item so that you'll see if they change it

This has been long overdue......definitely needs to be a regular advert / post, as I have experienced what feels like an influx of scammers in recent months. A lot of new users who use this platform will be vulnerable, and need informing from the get go. This should really be introductory when members first sign up.....but a part from that, this is definitely a positive start and the right direction for this app.

It would be great if Psyonix would implement a trade listing feature in the game itself. You select what you have and what you want and someone can accept your offer which will complete the trade automatically. This way scamming isn't possible because you always get exactly what you selected for your trade. Unfortunately Psyonix is busy making new predatory shop-exclusive items.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------BEWARE OF THE FENNEC IMPOSTER'S!!!----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------These specific individuals are selling Titanium White Fennec's, but also have the base Fennec with the same certification tag. Ex: They add TW Striker Fennec first, wait a moment while you add things or will say, "What you added is not enough I just got a different offer worth more, what else do you have?" in an attempt to get you to take your eyes away from the trade and search your inventory; while they swap TW Striker Fennec for Base Striker Fennec. Most people will notice that the certification tag and paint will blink back and forth no matter what, the non painted Fennec will stay with the certification tag only while the painted body will display color and series in an animated loop...don't be fooled, 7 ppl tried this on me and all failed.

Also, i think there is something going on with Cancel Spam, they let you accept first, and rapidly accept and cancel many times, when u press accept, the timer runs out like normal and the items will go to the other player

It's better to completely forbid using any of those offerings in chat, so we can report anyone who does. There is not one single instance where someone honestly just wants to make a YouTube thumbnail or honestly just wants to wager in a 1v1. Messaging any such offer should result in an instant ban.

DO NOT BUY THE WRONG TRADE-UP ITEMS Players who buy trade-up items can use the Show Details button to make sure they only buy items that trade up in the correct way. Non-crate items say "exotic", “import'', or "very rare" and do not have any additional crate or series information. Crate items and items from a specific series say which crate or series they are from. Thanks for reading. Have fun trading, and stay safe!

DO NOT FALL FOR ITEM SWAP SCAMS Beware of players who remove items or credits from the trade window, hoping that you won’t notice. Do not accept a trade unless you are sure what’s being offered is correct. Check that items are correct by using the Show Details button. This is a button that shows all of an item’s information so you can be sure your trade partner is giving the correct item. If you play on console, the Show Details button is the left joystick button on your controller. If you play on PC, there is a button labeled Show Details that exists at the bottom-left area of the trade window. Do not be fooled by players who cancel a trade at the last second to quickly change their offer. If your trade partner pauses a trade after you’ve accepted, always use the Show Details button again to make sure they did not remove something valuable.

IGNORE FAKE TRADES Scammers use fake trades to trick you into overpaying for inexpensive items. Do not buy an item to resell for profit if only one player is making a nice offer for it. Only buy an item to resell for profit if several players have made similar offers for it so you know it is actually valuable. Avoid any player who offers to reward you for finding and purchasing an item for them. If you buy the item, the player will not reward you, and you will lose all of the credits that you spent. Never buy an item, expecting to be rewarded afterwards. Players can find items on their own without your help, and they know this. Do not put your inventory at risk.

DO NOT FALL FOR TRUST TRADE SCAMS (RISK & REWARD) Never trust another player with your inventory, expecting them to pay you in a future trade. Many scams happen when you trust other players to pay you at a later time. Only agree to deals that can be completed in one trade. Avoid all trades that are based on trust. Do not pay entry fees to other players for any reason. Avoid the following: Wagering on 1v1 Rocket League matches (or any other type of match) Paying to enter giveaways or raffles Paying another player to build a blueprint for you Do not trade with players who claim they have redeem codes for popular items such as Fennec, Octane, Nissan Skyline, Alpha items, or Black Market decals. These codes do not exist. Do not trade with players who want your help making YouTube or TikTok thumbnails. These players offer you a reward for accepting a trade you don't agree to, claiming that you can cancel the trade before it completes. Scammers have ways of preventing you from cancelling a trade once it has been accepted. So never accept a trade unless you agree to it being completed, because you might not be able to cancel. Do not trade with players who say they can duplicate your items. Duplication is not possible. Do not let another player borrow your items for any reason. Avoid any player who asks to try your items on their car. Avoid any player who can’t pay you until later because their credits are time-locked. Do not trade with players who claim to have glitched items. Glitched items do not exist. Do not accept a trade if any items or credits appear to be missing, even if your trade partner says they are there. Do not trade items or credits for real-world money. Real-money trading puts you at risk of scams and other illegal activity.

DO NOT FALL FOR PHISHING SCAMS Phishing is when scammers create fraudulent websites that ask you to enter the username and password of your Rocket League account. If you sign in to a scammer’s phishing site, the scammer will know your login info and will use it to steal your account. Phishing sites often look similar to known and trusted sites, in an attempt to appear normal and believable. For example, many phishing sites look like the real Steam, Epic Games, Playstation, and RL Garage login pages, to trick you into thinking they are legitimate. Always check links for spelling errors or extra letters, and stay away from unfamiliar sites. To protect yourself against phishing: Do not click on suspicious links, even if you are told you will get free items or credits. Do not click on links when adding other players to trade, except for the gamertag links on their profile. Use the in-game invite system to add players to trade without clicking on unfamiliar links. Do not enter your personal information into any websites. Only sign in to your Rocket League account from the game launching client installed on your device.
