We are PayPal Verified!

What it Means to be Verified To become Verified, a PayPal member in Canada must provide us with proof that he or she has opened an account at a bank or other financial institution. Because these institutions are required by law to screen account holders, PayPal's verification process increases security when you pay parties you do not know. Please note that PayPal's verification system does not constitute an endorsement of a member, nor a guarantee of a member's business practices. You should always consider other indicators when evaluating members, including length of PayPal membership and reputation scores (on eBay or other auction sites, if applicable). -->

BUYER BEWARE RULES & PROCEDURES: READ THIS BEFORE YOU POST!


Postby Falcon on Thu Jan 03, 2008 5:49 am

Please note that as of August 19, 2010, the Buyer Beware forum will mainly be used for discussion purposes only. In other words, the Rakion.biz team will not be maintaining the official Blacklist. You can now:

(1) Simply search the Buyer Beware forum to see if a specific username has been reported
(2) Use the Buyer Beware forum to start discussions about players who have scammed you as a means to inform other players. The Rakion.biz team will carry out bans whenever necessary (please do not PM about bans)
(3) Create your own personal Blacklists

Please review the RULES ON CREATING A REPORT (PERSONAL BLACKLIST) section below before you create a thread.



RULES ON CREATING A REPORT

A topic will either be locked or deleted if the following instructions are not properly followed.

  • Ensure that the potential scammer has not been reported yet. They may have multiple aliases and usernames so look out for this.
  • Thread title format MUST contain only the username(s) of the potential scammer. Please distinguish between their Rakion IGN and Rakion.biz username
  • Be mature about your report. We will NOT accept anything like "DARTHFALCON SCAMMED ME THAT B#*$&!!!!111" in the post.
  • You NO LONGER need a good reason and sufficient proof for filing a complaint. However, we prefer if you submit evidence to ensure some credibility.
  • We will limit your forum use if you make several false complaints.


RULES ON CREATING A PERSONAL BLACKLIST

Same as RULES ON CREATING A REPORT except:
  • Thread title format MUST contain the prefix [MyBlacklist]



OLD RULES, IGNORE THE REST OF THIS POST:

BUYER BEWARE OVERVIEW

The main purpose of the blacklist is to provide a readily accessible list of known Rakion scammers.

The new Rakion.biz Blacklist now consists of 2 main sections - the Blacklist and the Queue. Here's a brief explanation of each:

  1. The Blacklist - The official Rakion.biz list of potential scammers.

    The potential scammers on this list have been verified by multiple Rakion.biz members. However, unless they are verified by either the Rakion.biz Trade Council group, or the Trusted Members group (these groups are explained below), we cannot guarantee that the people on the Blacklist are true scammers, and thus remain potential scammers.
  2. The Queue - A list of potential scammers that do not yet meet our Blacklist criteria (explained below). Once they have met our criteria, they will be bumped up into the official Blacklist.


BLACKLIST CRITERIA

  1. A potential scammer will be added to the Blacklist and the Blacklisted user group (regardless of criteria 1 & 2) when reported by the following groups: Rakion.biz administrator, Trade Council, Trusted Member
  2. A potential scammer will be added to the Queue when reported by less than 3 members of the following group: Members.
  3. A potential scammer will be added to the Blacklist and the Blacklisted user group when reported by 3 or more members of the following group: Members.


RAKION.BIZ USER GROUPS RELATED TO THE BLACKLIST

Three Rakion.biz user groups have been established to support the Blacklist:

  • Trade Council - Exclusive group of trustworthy and long-serving Rakion players handpicked by the Rakion.biz founder. More information and a list of members: http://rakion.biz/memberlist.php?mode=group&g=9
  • Trusted Members - Similar to the Trade Council, except that members can apply for induction. (Coming soon)
  • Blacklisted - (Potential) scammers who made it on the Blacklist will automatically be part of this group. (Coming soon)


AGREEING WITH SOMEONE'S REPORT

If you agree with the report, simply click the Image on the FIRST POST of the thread.

Although I will go through every post to ensure that it complies with our forum rules, I cannot verify whether or not you agree with the report by doing so. Therefore, simply hit the THANKS button as mentioned above and I'll add your username in the REPORTED BY column of the Blacklist/Queue.


BANNING SCAMMERS

Bans will only be carried out if Blacklist Criteria #1 is fulfilled. Only when this criteria is met can we guarentee that the user is not merely a potential scammer.

Inclusion into the Blacklisted user group will suffice if Criteria #3 is met.


WRONGLY ACCUSED?

If your username appears on the Queue, this is a matter of insignificance. If your username appears on the Blacklist and you would like to be removed from it, and the Blacklisted user group, then .......................................
