    Pickle Rick:

    [09:14]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    So, if I were to offer you real money for some of your keys, you wouldn't run off screaming scammer?
    And don't ask, yes, I will go first

    [09:14]
    Pickle Rick:
    Nah sorry do t have credit card or paypal
    And you could easily chargeback

    [09:15]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:

    [09:15]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:

    You can't chargeback those
    just need an email

    [09:57]
    Pickle Rick:
    Ah OK what that

    [09:58]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    I send you the money with the terms and conditions, if the terms are met, you get your money, I get my keys and we part ways
    If they're not, we send proof to [email protected] and prove that they weren't met
    Do you have an email that I could send it to?

    [10:03]
    Pickle Rick:
    Wdym
    How do you send he money
    And where does the money go

    [10:03]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    The invoice carries the money
    Since it's labeled as something along the lines of "non refundable gift"

    [10:04]
    Pickle Rick:
    But where i t go
    But where does the monsy go?

    [10:05]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    If you make an account, it goes straight through to your balance on paypal, since it's a gift and it doesn't even need a credit card

    [10:05]
    Pickle Rick:
    My gmail is [email protected]

    [10:06]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    I'll send you the invoice, you can click on the review and pay invoice, read the terms and check that they are true

    [10:06]
    Pickle Rick:
    And does the alanc go straight in?

    [10:06]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    Yep
    Since it's labeled as a gift
    ok so how many keys am I buying here?
    let me count how many you have
    24 keys
    times 2.5

    [10:08]
    Pickle Rick:
    Ye

    [10:08]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    =60

    [10:08]
    Pickle Rick:
    Yap

    [10:08]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    Let me just set it up, when you recieve it and read it, would you send the trade?

    [10:08]
    Pickle Rick:
    So I can't check it rn
    Maybe you should send it later

    [10:09]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    What time is it?

    [10:09]
    Pickle Rick:
    When I'm o pc

    [10:10]
    Pickle Rick:

    Until on computer

    and I would like to give it to you
    it's not at all much, but just a little something to thank you on your patience :)

    [10:13]
    Pickle Rick:
    Nah
    It would take some time to examine the invoice anywa

    [10:14]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    Just a gift, I think I have a 66% discount of "dwarf defense" and I don't wanna completely waste it
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com sent you a new trade offerView trade offer

    [10:19]

    I put all that spam of text into a spoiler block.

    Reading thru it, likely an invoice scam as you thought.
    If you aren't sure then don't do the trade - this should be the case for any trade discussion.
    A good honest trader is patient.
    When in doubt just do a item for item trade vs real world funding.

    If you don't have paypal then why are you offering it? How would you prove you didn't receive funds?
    You have to ask yourself those questions.
    Either way an invoice is a bill...not a form of payment and can be reported.
    Make sure you do screenshots and not copy/pasted chat text though as chat text isn't acceptable evidence.

    the reason why is that he said this: ?[09:56]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    We could do an invoice
    You can't chargeback those
    just need an email?
    he said i just needed an email and i was liek "how does that work"
    also got the email is this fake or real?

    Ask him if he used trade hashes, if he doesn't have a clue about them, it's a scam.
