Hi, it's Lexa here ready to teach you about steering clear of Scams and hacks. I had to find out the hard way how to avoid them, so consider yourself lucky.
Now young grasshoppers, your training begins....

First thing you need to know is how to spot a scam event. Some of the common ones are; I can double your money, G4G and sometimes even BANK-I keep your money until you need it. As you can see, these are easy to avoid. But some scams don't wear a collar with flashing lights saying, "Hey, I'm a scam event!" Some events are more subtle, don't go to beauty pageants with an entrance fee. DON'T.

REPORT the owner and warn everyone in the room. Sometimes the owner will kick right away, but if you didn't fall for the scam you're good. cheers
Be careful about new releases. Some of those items look like old rares. For example, "Nightclub Puzzle Dancefloor"....hmm, look a bit like our friend the 08 'floor? Or the new Vegas piano. "Gold Piano" anyone? Roll over the item in the trade window to make sure it's the one you want.

Hacks are worse. Be UBER-Careful when trying to trade with millions of coins.
A: Fake coins. Document the entire trade with screenshots, what you traded, how many fake coins you got and what time it was to be able to send a ticket to Zynga for a refund.
B: Fake items-nobody wants super smexy neon green 50c pants for 14mil. It'll look like the item you want, trade and poof. No 08, super smexy green pants. Again, repeat the steps above.Make them wear or put the item in the room (and put it back in their invo) before they trade you to make sure they have it, or buddy them and look at their Yv.com profile as a better resort.
Apparently ^^^ has been fixed, but be careful-last time they said it was fixed, hackers upgraded

I will add more as it pops into my head, suggestions appreciated.
Holla!
~~Lexa

Just one comment. Zynga fixed fake coins and items so that really isn't a threat anymore. And even if people do Make fake stuff again zynga would be able to varify the trade right away. Just saying...

Ummmmmmm Zynga didn't really "fix" the prob really good. I am a yocash dealer and this dude wanted bunny ears. I gave 2 him and he put the $ in, ( he didn't cancel trade like scammers do to get the hxd or whatevr the heck they use working) so we traded then, poof! I had the coins, but when I tried to buy something they didn't work. I got frozen so I refreshed, and lo behold, they were gone. It was only 20k so I didn't make a big deal outta it. Lol just warning you, be careful when you trade!!!!!!!!!! Exclamation

I have to agree with savannah, cause i made an event the other day where i was selling a few things and i have never had any troubles with fake coins b4 so i traded the person, when i refreshed the coins were gone i lost my items and the money. Everyone is saying watch out when selling expencive items but it isnt just high dollar items they are using fake coins for anymore its cheep ones too, which i think is sad ;( I say just keep an eye out in general and always be wary. affraid car2
