    Ign: OreoMC (my friend BeaverBelas also got banned for same “reason”)
    Reason: Scamming for spawners

    Me and my friend were looking for a good skyblock server so we joined this one a week ago. We won 2 pig spawners from someone’s casino and decided to resell them for 45k each. After waiting for a buyer, someone visited our island and told us he was interested. I insisted on giving him the spawners first and then he pay me second, but instead he told me to set up a chest shop for the spawners. I couldnt figure out the ID for pig spawners so I asked him and he said 52:0. I used the exact ID he told me and the price we both agreed on but the shop wouldn’t work. After a while he told me “forget this” and left my island. I got off shortly after because its almost 12 a.m. here. Less than 5 minutes later my friend dm’ed me a screenshot of him banned for scamming. He wasnt even apart of the trade, which wasnt even a scam. I checked if i had also been banned for no reason and sure enough, I was. Im just upset that me and my friend were banned without being able to tell staff our side of the story.


    • Server/platform (Classic / Skyblock / Forums / Discord ): -Skyblock economy
    • In-game name: - OreoMC
    • Full exact Ban Message: -scamming players for spawners
    • Did you read the rules? -Yes i did
    • Why do YOU think you were banned? -Me and my friend both won pig spawners from someone's casino so we decided to sell them. After looking for a buyer we eventually found someone who agreed on a price (45k). He came to my island, and I insisted on dropping the spawners first and then he pay me so there was no way he would get scammed. Instead he told me to set up a chest shop for the 2 pig spawners. The shop wouldn't work multiple times so I asked him for the ID of pig spawners and he said 52:0. After setting up the shop like he told me to, it still wouldn't work. He eventually said "forget this" and went back to island. I decided to get off because it was late but my friend stayed on. Around 5 minutes after i got off my friend dm'ed me a screenshot of his ban. I checked if I had also been banned and I was.
    • Was this an incorrect ban? Yes
    • Were you ever banned before on SkyBlock? If so, what for? No
    • Why do you think you should be unbanned? Because neither me or my friend (who also got banned even though he wasn't apart of the trade) scammed nor had any intentions of scamming anyone

    Hello OreoMC. Apologies for the late response. There were a lot of things for me to consider about your situation.

    You and the other player had agreed to using a chestshop to sell the two spawners. You have other chestshops at your island, creating one for the mob spawner should not have been an issue. When you failed to create a chestshop, you tried to convince the other player to purchase some other item through the auction house while offering to drop the spawners for them.

    A scam is being dishonest about a deal. Unfortunately it was very suspicious when you said you would drop the spawner and offer something over auction house. This is the same method used by real scammers in the game. The people who are trying to sell the spawner cages never actually give the item to the other player and get away with keeping the skybucks (money).

    I want to help you avoid future trouble with the chestshop. Hold the spawner in your player hand and type /iteminfo. The server will tell you in a message what you need to type on the chestshop.

    This is an example what you will see in game. If the spawner cage has not been placed yet, write Mob Spawner #28 on the fourth line of the chestshop sign.

    This is an example of /iteminfo for a pig spawner I had in my inventory. I had already placed it down on my island and dug it up with silk touch. What I have to write on the chest shop is different. For this pig spawner, I have to type Mob Spawner #4Z in the chestshop sign.

    You can use the /iteminfo command with anything you want to sell via the chestshop. I hope this helps you in your future business. I will accept your appeal and unban you from the game.
