    How to Report a Dispute
    Please fill out all 9 questions below. You must provide proof or your claim cannot be validated.

    1. Date Dispute Happened

    2. Are You The Buyer or Seller
    I'm the seller

    3. Total Transaction Value
    $200 USD

    Playerup Admin

    5. Method Used To Pay or Receive Payment

    6. Other Parties Email Addresses

    7. Other Parties Payment Email Address
    [email protected]

    8. Other Parties Messenger Username
    On email, it was just those 2 usernames.
    I'm suspecting the buyers Discord, but no proof if their involvement.

    9. Provide All Chat Logs and Additional Information Below

    So I just tried selling an Epic7 account, going through a middleman, so I started it up and both myself the buyer went through it, and it went well until I figured out, Playerup don't use emails.
    And that is where the middleman contacted me.
    But it was already too late, the deal had gone through, and now I'm left with nothing for my hard-worked account.
    I got both conversation with the buyer, on Discord, but I don't they are involved as I still have them friended, and they DID receive the account, so they didn't get scammed, it was only on my end. But again, I still don't trust they are 100% innocent, so I've kept it there, for now.
    The real scam account is obviously the email I've been talking to, setting all this up. The entire cheat is below. If anyone know how to fix this, or least ban this love you, I'll sleep a bit sounder at night. Tried talking to him out of desperation, with no luck, ofc.

    What was there playerup name?

    You should contact the game in question and e-mail them stating your account has been hacked.

    Because you have 100% been scammed.

    Yea, that's the problem, the dude who bought it just added me on Discord. Then I set up the link and gave it to the person, then the middleman contacted me afterwards. So all I really got are these 2 people. Still unsure if the buyer is involved since it was myself that started the whole trade. Is there any way you can track him on here via the email?

    I can tell you without a doubt that the person was behind the e-mails as well.

    This is a very popular method of scamming and it's a shame people don't check to see if this is how PlayerUp does business. If we did it this way, it would be absolute chaos.

    The e-mail doesn't link to anyone here, for all we know he's already made a new e-mail by now.

    I'm sorry this has happened but there isn't anything we can do as this person has most likely been long banned from here.

    All middleman deals are done on-site to prevent this from happening.

    Ah, I see.. Well, I did eventually check but as I said, already too late. Oh well, at least I learned from my mistake. I wouldn't even have cared about the money, as long as this asshole would've been banned for good. That's what annoys me the most
