Hi every body,

I confirm Orthcrist is a scammer

I m french so sorry for my bad english.

So i tell my story for inform you

So my scammer is : [B]OrthcristB]

Orthcrist, was scammed lot of people, you can see this topik in french section of battleforge.com here :
http://forums.battleforge.com/forum/showthread.php?p=287932&posted=1#post287932

His method is to propose to trade his enlighment for more than 3 cards.
In général 3 big cards and one or 2 little more.
For me was : Wheel of gift, mark of the keeper, mana wings and roots.

BUT, he ask we send the little cards first, befor the trade. We are gullible, and we send theses cards before.
After, he simply ignore us and sell our cards to the AH.
I lost my "Roots"

Please, if you see him ingame, inform all players, on général talk, that Orthcrist is a scammer.

hi lithaladin, thank you for inviting me to this site.

anyway, I can confirm that orthcrist is a scammer. read about him here:BF English Forum

Luckily i only lost a common card to this conman. We must do whatever it takes to remove him from the game, take away his promo cards (they're the bait to the scam) or simply get his name and/or his associated accounts known.

I took some effort to copy your orriginal message from the BF forum cause i fear that the EA staff will remove it

My fellow BF players, today was an unfortunate day. A scammer had crossed paths with me and scammed one of my cards. Now you might say, "Oh, you could've used the report feature in-game!", but I didn't. Instead, chose to take it up here, and I'll tell you why. The moment I denounced his name to the entire server, I was whispered by a lot of curious traders and numerous victims; they had either been scammed by the same person or they were lucky enough to avoid them. Shockingly, the majority of them told me it was futile, because they had filed reports but their efforts were to no avail.

So, I started to collect evidence, and I went to the options to see if there was a screenshot feature in game. There was, and upon further discovery, the hotkey CTRL+O triggered the snapshot function. So, I proceeded to take a snapshot, but after the first attempt seemed to fail, I pressed CTRL+O a few more times. Then, the greatest thing happened to me. Battleforge froze on me. Taking advantage of the situation, I take a screenshot with PrintScreen. Here is what I got:


I have censored the names of everyone on my screen in compliance with BattleForge's "no name" policy.

That was the conman's script in the chatbox to the left. 4 cards for one card...hmmm...sound familiar? It probably does, as I was told it was an old scam by a victim who had messaged me. It didn't make me feel better, but it was nice to know. As you can see I was pretty heated at the moment and I made some threats directed at him; feel free to point and laugh. Yea, and I actually named by deck YUGIOH.

I thought the offer was pretty good. I thought my Ravenheart and my Grimvine held some weight, and I thought he genuinely wanted them. So, in hopes of speeding things up, I send him a card in a trade window first. Immediately, I request a trade, and he denies it. I thought he pressed the wrong button and I continued to request trade. He kept declining and so I whispered him. Soon after, I declare him scammer, and I swore to take it to the forums. Well, here I am now.

I am not worried about getting my card back; it was fairly common. I just want to show everyone this story and the stories of others. I hope everyone will not fall as easily as I did to this scam, and I hope the admins and mods will investigate the reports of players further.

If anyone wants to know the full story, please feel free to contact me via PM or in game mail. My IGN is LIQUIDOPS. I will now head back in game to file an official report and to check on my bids. Thank you for reading this, and I would like to hear your input.

SUMMARY: I was scammed, and other people were scammed by the same person also. I want to inform everyone of what happened.

sadly EA doesnt do anything about this guy. I have essembled many evidence by players and send it through the support to EA. till know they havent done anything.

The only thing what we can do is putting them on this forum and also in the dutch community http://battleforgefans.nl

We are not allowed to report them in the official forums so this is the only alternative.
