Beware of Trade Scams in Rocket League

We’ve all been there at some point or other. You’re playing a game of Rocket League when someone pops up in the chat asking to trade items. Sadly, there are scammers out there looking to take all your hard earned loot, with more reports coming in all the time of people who have been shafted by this system.

There are ways to look out for these scammers, however. For example, you’re likely to see them popping up in obvious places such as trade forums, where you’ll see posts made for a commonly searched item, and will more than likely accept any offer no matter how low. From here, you’re likely to be invited to the game and be asked to trade.

The technique usually sees the scammer putting the item up for trade, after which you’ll put up your items for the trade. You’ll then be sent a bunch of junk items that are commonly dropped in RL, before removing your desired item before accepting the trade.
This isn’t the only method used, either. Some have even stooped as low as to asking for player’s Steam wallet codes, though this should be something that’s pretty common sense to avoid. This may seem obvious to many, but its worth keeping an eye out, and just exercising caution when trading with others in Rocket League.

Do you trade often whilst playing the game? Have you experienced any scams whilst trading in Rocket League? Let us know your stories in the comments section below.
