List Of Scams
With so many scam threads around, I thought I'll list some common techniques scammers used.
(Note : Some are border-line overpricing, but I believe you wouldn't want to fall for them anyway)

1. Uruga Scrolls

This is a common scam as uruga scrolls look similar to rumen and elderine scrolls.
Most scammers selling this will put Uruga scrolls in the shop name.
However, it is actually rumen/elderine scrolls, priced anywhere from 7 to 11s.

2. Gold Lumps

A less common scam due to the rarity of the gold lumps itself.
People have been seen selling this for 300s++ to trick people that it npcs for 1g.
It does not! Gold lumps are worth 10s NPC.

3. Hidden Silver(s)

This is common in rumen and sometimes in elderine.
Usually, people will price things sub-1s things cheaper, but add a few s to it.
For example, lets say an elrue[1]. It's worth about 40 - 60c.
Some will price it at 35c but add a 1s, making it a total of 1s 35c.
Be careful and look at the price before buying.

4. Vitality[02]

This scam is all the rage in Teva now.
As some should know, there is no T2 Vit Production Skill from npc, only from drop.
As such, some people are selling Vitality[02] for 350s++.
Note that Vitality[02] is NOT the production skill, it is a fighter skill.
To avoid this, make sure the production skill you are buying has the word "production" in the title.

5. Copper to Silver

Another common scam to trick people in the rush.
What this does is to sell items in silver instead of copper.
Let's take, vitality scroll, for example, which is worth 100c.
Normally these scammers will price it lower, and change it to silver.
In this case, they will sell the vitality scroll for 80s or so.

That's all the scams I can think of at the moment.
If you've seen anymore, do inform me via PM/reply and I'll add it in.

I never walk around with anything more than 2s. I figure that i'd not want it any more by the time i get to storage and go back to the vendor.
