    I think mods and PoE policies is what will cause downfall of this game.

    I got scammed about half hour ago. Guy did Uber Atziri for me. When I tried to trade ex he wanted for the axe that dropped using MINE fragments, guy tried to trade me already identified axe with different sockets and potentially worse rolls.

    I made a review on his PoE forum page and it was deleted by the mod because 'my review harms reputation of the person (scammer) and its against code and conduct'. And advised me to make a report to support team. Which I already did and awaiting response.

    If I dont get anything back I will ask to terminate my account and refund for all microtransactions I have paid, and trust me there was quite a bit.

    Will keep u guys updated.

    Let it go and move on. You pretty much need a signed confession if you expect GGG to actually do anything about it. Player services are at your own risk. It sucks getting scammed but you'll forget about it by the time the next league rolls around.

    I'm curious, what were the terms? You provide fragments and he gets the drops? Got a link to the thread for the service?

    You think that's bad? I got scammed by Blizzard, I gave them 80 bucks to buy Diablo 3 and all I got was a steaming pile of shit.

    Those fuckers did the same thing to me. I wonder how many other poor saps fell for their little ploy.

    I have a co-worker who loves Poe. He stopped gaming for a while - last game was diablo ii. I think he's spent $40 because he is happy with what the devs made.

    Nah it's not like that. Player's can join your game and kill bosses for you or run you through tougher sections of the game.

    ...to be fair, it actually IS that - paying someone to play the boss zone for him...

    the funnier part is that it was uber atziri, which means OP either did regular atziri (and should know the mechanics, then) or paid someone for that, too. haha

    I'm sure they're quaking in their boots at the idea that you might request a refund, lol.
