Topic: How to make a Trading Agreement & Report

Welcome to
How to make a trading agreement and report a scammer



I first want to make it clear that when trading another person that if they decide to scam you there is no way to receive the item you sent to them back. Having a trading agreement guarantees that the scammer will be banned. Keep this in mind and please trade at your own risk.

Let's begin


Before you make the agreement:
You'll need to know how to take a screen shot of it to use later as evidence. (Congrats you're a detective now, how does it feel?)
However, If you already know how to take a screen shot you can skip this part and begin with actual agreement.

Taking a screen shot and uploading it is very simple once you give it a try. (From here on out a screen shot will be called a ss.)

On most keyboards you have a print screen key. Press it to take a ss. On Some keyboards you'll have to press your FN key and print screen.
(FN is short for Function)
When you're in lobby you might not notice when you're taking a ss at first. So try it in practice mode where you'll notice text on the left side appear when you take a ss.

I think I took a screen shot, BUT WHERE DOES IT GO?! I'll show you.   (°ヮ°)

I use Windows 7, so an easy way for me to find it would be:
Click the Windows button, type in Rumble Fighter, right click on it, Open File Location, and you'll find the Screen Shot folder.

Now to avoid having to go through those steps every time what you can do is make a lovely shortcut and leave it somewhere special on your desktop for easy access.

So now I found my screen shot, BUT WHAT DO I DO NOW?!
Well you have to upload it to the internet. Right now it is just a file on your computer located in
C:\Program Files (x86)\OGPlanet\RumbleFighter\Screen Shots

So, take that screen, bring it to your desktop, rename is something easy to find, then drag it over to Imgur. There's other options too like: ImageShack, Tinypic, or imgur (Imgur Recommended) .

After the screen shot is uploaded you can include it in your Help Desk report.

Videos are accepted

So if you're fancy, then you can record the trading agreement too, but it will only be accepted in 720p or 1080p HD.


Now for the actual agreement.

There's 3 steps


1) The person must agree to trade you and include the name of the item.

Question-Do you agree to trade me <the item you are sending> for <item they should be sending to you>.
Answer- You need a Yes or a No.

2) When the item will be sent to your account.

Question-When will I receive the gift from you?
Answer- You want a actual date month/day/year. Getting an answer like, "uuh today, you'll get it today' Isn't enough.

3) Where is the item going to be sent?

Question-Do you agree to send this item to <your IGN>?
Answer- Yes or No


YOU HAVE TO COMPLETE EACH STEP TO THE AGREEMENT OR ELSE IT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.


Below are screenshots of a trading agreement done correctly.


Step one: Have them agree to be trading you, and include the name of the item.


Step two: Have them mention the time you should receive the item.
When Seph and I were trading the date was 1/29/11, in the agreement it gives him at least until the end of 1/30/11 to send the Fair Enchant.


Step three: Which account will receive the item.




After the trade agreement is made you should feel free to gift the other person knowing that if something goes wrong there will be consequences if they break the agreement.




That concludes how to do a trading agreement.

Final bits of advice when trading


If it seems suspicious, don't risk it. (Lv.10 with all carat items offering 200 astros for 50k carats)
Remember if it something to good to be true, then it probably is.

A word about hacked items:
Don't trade what you suspect might be a carat or astro hacker. When that hacker gets banned you lose whatever item they sent you, and you could lose your account in the process, so don't risk it.

Sometimes the hacker will gift you. Yeah sometimes it happens, but still, don't use whatever they sent you. Report the hacked items to the Help Desk. Doing this can seriously save your account from getting banned.

Always look for trades through friends first, a stranger you met 5 minutes ago likely doesn't care if they scam you.

Good luck traders.

This next section will be how to report a scammer.


Trading Agreement will be referred to as TA.

This is where you go to report to the Help Desk.
For this issue select: Rumble Fighter. Then from the drop down menu select In-Game Issues.

The subject for this report will always follow this format:
Scammed By (Put their in game name here)

The message will be:
The screen shot of Step 1, 2, and 3 from the TA.
Also the next day you can include a screen shot showing the item wasn't received.

The screen shots can't be cropped or edited in any way.


Remember step 2 of your TA? It was about when the item will be recieved.
It's important because technically the trade is still active until the day is over. It's unlikely, but sometimes things happen irl to prevent us from doing things in game. So just to be sure, you'll need to wait 24 hours before reporting the scammer to the Help Desk.


That ends concludes how to report to take a screen shot, make a trading agreement, and report a scammer.
It all may seem complicated, but after you do it once or twice it becomes pretty easy.




Thanks to Beba, Seph, and Gio.

If you have any questions leave a comment or send me a PM.

We do not  accept videos since it is hard to clearly read the trade of agreement.
That is a strange coincidence. Although, there's an obvious explanation.

Yes, but this thread is focusing more. For example, the other thread do not mention that players MUST ASK >>> "Do you agree to trade me my (the item you are sending) for your (item you should be receiving)". They need to confirm this with a Yes/No.
This is really important becacuse without this, the trade of agreement is invalid.

If it is HQ yes, but honestly I never got a HQ video. To be safe SCREENSHOTS.
