Dealing with stingy/greedy collectors

(Zirukurt01) #1

It seems some people are greedy or stingy.
Some people declined cross-trades which i’m trying to complete their collection unless it’s below 50% (or something) which looks stingy. On the other hand, there are greedy collectors who will trade your dupe with something you don’t interested in and the worse, some of his/her collection are mostly not in your collections or you don’t have something in common for collection.

How do you deal with these such people?

P.S. I always follow the tips about trading to avoid being ripped-off.

  • Ask before send them a trade.
  • Try to find something they need of equal value.
  • If the card I want is rare or limited, I usually overpay.
  • Patience.

I have done the things you mention, mostly because:

  • I have dupes that I’m saving (older sets)
  • I love a card and I’m hoarding it.
  • I have a 80% complete set, but I don’t like the rest of the cards/mid collecting I realize didn’t like it.
  • I have sets with only 1-3 cards, but those are the cards I like and I won’t trade them.
  • The trade seems unfair or the cards you’re offering are easier to get.
  • I don’t have the time to counter.
  • The person asking for a trade have multiple accounts.

Also, not every collector use the same rules, that’s why is easier to talk to them first.

Just ignore or decline their trades.
I can understand, what you mean, because I have some older serires that I try to complete with much more valuable trades, but not all accept my trades. That’s collectors life :slight_smile:

honestly i tend to either message them or just ignore them - on the a similar note I LOVE TO TRADE lol - so as long as it is a dupe and a series i have open feel free :revolving_hearts: (this goes out to anyone reading this post lol)

“The person asking for a trade have multiple accounts”
“I love a card and I’m hoarding it”

Obvious reasons why neonmob got negative reputation. Many users would leave if they know things such as this, Multiple accounts? that’s nasty like stealing candy from a kid.

Sometimes I really like the print number so I won’t trade it, or it’s one of my favourite card so and they’re offering me things I don’t care for.

As soon as someone angrily tells me they offered me a fair trade why the fuck didn’t I accept it I’ll also definitely not accept anything from them. The thing is what’s important to me about my cards may be different to what you see as important and you need to respect that.

My bigger worry about neonmob is the collectors/creators leaving neonmob. I think they’re tired of changes or just hated how many people aren’t really that kind. Would anyone like people who are just stingy/greedy? well, neonmob is now full of robbers. I’ll keep my artworks from this site.

A creator isn’t just robbed by a person with multiple accounts, also the collectors.

in conclusion,
the major problems of neonmob is horrible changes and users with multi-accounts.

Report them if they have multiple accounts. I understand that it is against the rules to have more than one.

Yes, users are only allowed one account as funneling cards from dummy account to a main account is not allowed. Although it does take time for us to research and ban these users, please do email if you come across users cheating. - Joe @ NeonMob
