This is a discussion on Getting Scamed at Poker Stars within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; It's almost pathetic on how much people get scamed a Poker Stars, and yet, no one on the PS staff does nothing to stop it.
It's almost pathetic on how much people get scamed a Poker Stars, and yet, no one on the PS staff does nothing to stop it. Everywere you go, there is someone saying anyone selling chips? It's so down right silly, and it would be easy to stop. Simply take away the feature send funds. Or send play chips if thats what you play. What has this world come to? Stealing play chips?? Comon/

People on Stars sell play chips for real money. What exactly is wrong with that? I've sold my fair share of chips. 100,000 for $2. PS only lets you get 3000 per hour, then you have to sit out for an hour. So what exactly is wrong with this? If you want to practice on another site go ahead. If you want on Stars I help. These chips did not come easy. It took hours and hours to get them so if I make a couple bucks for my time, what is the difference in this and a free roll?

Or as an alternative to disabling a function that many people find very useful, people could just excercise the wonders of common sense and not send any money to people they don't know.

Couple more options available are -
1. Mute them
2. Ignore them
3. My favorite - reply with nonsensical one word answers.
The last one probably works better on the smack talkers on the table, winds them up terribly and then....mute them lol,
fairly straight forward and very easy to do
Hmmm - seem to have my mischevious head on today

re: Poker & Getting Scamed at Poker Stars
i won over 5 million in chips on ps and if ppl want them i ask 4 a donation of a buck but i tell them they dont have to its appreciated though just because you spend 3-4 hrs playing the free play tourneys 2 win them.cause 3k per hr sucks .party poker is better for play money play
just my opinion like a--holes everyone has one ,sry if that s not appropriate language.

I wish every site had player to player transfers..... Just have to remember why would a real money player buy play chips? I know happens all the time on pokerstars... Just have to think that if they are paying for play chips they had no buisness making a deposit in the first place.

Brianna, once again u misunderstood my post. People scam you on PS by not sending back. I don't think theres anything wrong with selling and buying play chips, but scaming isn't.

It was real simple to mis understand you on this one. When you get done posting, try reading what you have posted. Try reading this line: "Every were you go, there is someone saying anyone selling chips?" I simply respond YES. Did I mis understand that? If it is a problem than don't be the idiot that sends money before getting what is coming to you. Stop whining and bitching about every thing being a skam. PS, Passwords, or whatever. Apparently you have been burned in the past. This is not my fault. So lighten up, read your own posts carefully or bugger off.
