Ragnarok Schemes and Scams

I’ve been playing Ragnarok Online since 2003 and I must say I had my fair share in the Ragnarok schemes and scams by other players. I’ve been a victim myself. I was just new to the game and I would love to have a Healing Clip. So I traded my muffler [1] and zeny and when the deal is done, all I have is a Clip [1] with no Vitata Card. Grrr!!!! I hated that day. The next one, I was tempted to buy the healing clip (again) for 50php. But what happened is, he never gave me the healing clip. From that day on, I stop dreaming of having a heal clip because it’s a jinx.
Here are the list of the Ragnarok Schemes and Ragnarok Scams that I have encountered in my years of playing.


Buy and Sell Ragnarok Scheme – This Ragnarok scheme usually occurs in a place where there are a lot of people like Prontera. One person would make a pub selling his goods for a price and in a distant area, one person buys the same good a high price. Chances are, you’ll be tempted to buy that good then sell it to the one buying it. But beware for this is a scam. As soon as you buy the goods, both players would disappear.

Pre-caution: You’ll know its obviously a scam if you see one. For example a jellopy, who buys them for 1M?

Ragnarok Load scam – A lot has been a victim of this. People would trade their Ragnarok Load for zeny and vice-versa. In the end, the people you deal with would not give you his share in the trade

Pre-caution: Never trust players that are using novices or people that you do not know

Ragnarok Deal hack

I just heard of this but I don’t know if it’s true. If you deal a player, he could hacked you.

Pre-caution: Never deal with players that are suspicious. Like selling items for a low price or buying items with a very high price.

Ragnarok Deal bug or the infamous Ghost deal

This is a bug in Ragnarok Online that the Gravity developers did not forsee (maybe). It goes like this. You are either selling or buying something in Prontera. A player would offer to trade with you. A player would deal you then then deal you again once the trade window is open. You’ll place the item, then he’ll cancel it. Then the mischievous player would ask you to pass something to his another character or make other excuses. You’ll agree on helping him but when you click the trade window, the items you traded with him before is gone.

Precaution: See the trade window who you are dealing with. Don’t trust people that you don’t know. I think Gravity already fixed this. Too bad for the players who are victims of this bug, their items were not returned nor they were compensated.

Ragnarok scam – False advertising

This Ragnarok scam happens in Prontera. Merchants would write in their shop title Muffler [1] or Shoes [1] . But the truth is, its a non slotted item.

Precaution: Check the item first before clicking the buy button.

Ragnarok scam – False item scheme

The Ragnarok false item scheme got me. This is common with clips, mufflers and other slotted equipments. At first they will show you the real thing then they will cancel the deal, making ecuses. Then they will deal you again, this time its not the same item anymore. The healing clips would just be a plain clip [1]

Ragnarok Chixilog scam

The chixilog scam is the ultimate Ragnarok scam. Chixilogs are male players with female avators. They would befriend and make a guy fall for them, saying they are real female iRL. Guys would fall then he’ll give items and equipmens to the chixilogs. These is a long term Ragnarok scam because the relationship might go on for years. Poor guy πŸ™ Maybe I should write a post on how to spot a chixilog.
But no matter how you cry for help, unfortunately the GM team would not help nor entertain you.

To the readers: Tell me the scams that you have encountered while playing Ragnarok.

  13. Never ask another player how much an item costs in game. Ive told people 1mill on a 10mill item and they didnt know any better, and yeah, I bought shit for cheap like that. I dont do it anymore though cause that would ruin my good rep xD

  14. You forgot forcedeal… My 5m got stucked and the scammer never went back again…. I suppose many players became a victim of this huh?

  15. as a former scammer,, there’s another scam technique i want to share to you guyz,, and this is what i used back then xD..

    it goes like this.. una look for an item na kksya sa bujet mo ex u have 3m, go 4 aoa’s & other items n pde mo ma buy with 3m hanap ka nyn ng mga nkapub.. knwari my nkta ka 4 sale.. S>+4 aoa 3m.. deal mo xa then pakita mo 3m mo.. tpos cancel mo.. then make an excuse na pde tawad piso? tpos gwin mo n lng nun na 299,999.. kung bobo xa magadd msscam xa! xD

    marami rin kming nbiktima d2 πŸ˜€ dont hate me pls.. xD

    -former scammer of Sarah

  16. lol u also forgot about buying charcters at high levels i bought one nd he changed the pass and i sold one and he didnt give me the zeny nd he changed the pass nd never went on agian

  17. bago lang aq sa RO when my husband and i got scammed, it was in prontera knight ata nag deal sa amin. we were luking for an item di lumapit si scammer, then we are such newbies kaya nilagay namin yung money agad then all of a sudden bigla nag iba yung items na ibibigay nya and he/she ran away. hai bakit ba may mga taong ganun? walang pambili kaya nanloloko na lang!

  18. e2 pa sa payon naman, pero di na kami naloko! hehe… may lumapit askin’ ate alam mo yung ghost deal? sabi ko oo scam yun. then he wanted to buy my AFM ,e di deal na. then after draging sa trade box bigla nawala yung item, haiz buti na lang cancel q at bumalik! the nerve! sabi ko lolokohin mopa ko!

  19. Admin pinoy ka ba??? kaZ may kekwento kaZ ako sau eh. . . i mean in tagalog ko ke kwento sau kasi mas madali kung through tagalog language ko ikekwento sau. Not that hindi ako magaling sa English pero mas convienient parin ang pag use ng tagalog para sakin

  20. chixilogs?
    not necessarily
    my ex bf cheated on me
    he also play ro
    so i lied to him i wanna see his char and items in the inventory to do something,
    i moved all his items to my account and deleted his char (sinx),
    when he log in, he was shocked, i told him some1 must be hacking him, and i said was his bro
    only me and his bro knew his id and pass,
    stupid guy,
    i hack his 2nd id too was a rogue lvl 99
    still stupid.
    ill track his new id soon…

    don blame me, im taking my revenge

  21. The false item scheme used to be a HUGE scam on my server, I dont think anyone does it anymore though. Everytime someone would deal you you would have to check the item, even if they have already cancelled the deal several times due to being “overweight” or some other lame excuse.

    Im just glad people stopped doing it. Nobody ever scammed me with it, but it was annoying as hell.

  22. GM pki ban naman ung jhude` ang name sa pRO valkyrie inscam ako ng 80m. At isa pa GM kung tlgang gus2 nyo kming protektahan dapat hndi kayo mtakot mag ban o mag terminate ng isang account..

    SALAMAT XD!

  23. I was scammed by Mvpbreaker07 at pRO Valkyrie worth 41m. She ghost dealed me, and I couldn’t cancel my deal. . . when I reconnect my 41m was gone.

  24. i know a scam.. it was done to me.. the player ask you if you want a way to duplicate an item.. and he will explain about a bug.. then he will ask you to form a party.. he will ask you to drop the item that you want to duplicate.. of course you get it back.. then he will again aks you to drop it and get it for the second time.. but what you don’t know is that the party formed is shared items.. so the second time you took that item the other player will get it.. then suddenly he will log out T_T

  25. i have a 30m and i will trade it for a gcash first i down a 15m and im waiting him to send the gcash after an hour im wating he didnt not send a gcash and he not text me and chat me please help me! how to use ipban or how to ban a hacker tnx! please send me a message in this email santosalijah@yahoo.com

  26. first off, real money trades/deals for zeny or ingame items…isn’t this illegal? siguro hindi pinipigilan ng GM yung mga nanloloko at nagpapaloko kasi bottomline it’s your deal, your responsibility. I’ve been playing since 2k3 myself and the only way to avoid getting scammed is simply not to trust anyone you don’t know. IRL it’s stupid to follow a stranger in some isolated location and expect some fairy godparent would show up. bakit kasi kailangan pagkakitaan ang RO sa ganyang paraan seriously? OK lng ung mga nananalo sa events IRL like RWC pero yung mga load or ROK for ingame items or zeny? kung ako ang LUG I won’t help you retrieve your items. these kinds of schemes are not promoted and even banned in the license agreement (binasa nyo ba?) kaya it’s the player’s sole responsibility. walang sisishan.

    next, FORCE deals, muntik na ko mahack. who to thank? yung mga nanlilimos ng zeny. if you get in this situation and u can’t cancel the deal, pray you don’t lag, and not get disconnected, immediately find a way to have someone else request a deal to you again. this way macacancel ung force deal. and always, always save a screenshot to report the scammer.

  27. nadali din ako ng force deal na yan..at d lang yun…may ka2loy pa ung scam na yan!!!bagong style to!!!
    naFORCE DEAL rin ako nung Mvpbreaker07 na yun….300m nawala sakin amfufu!!!pagkatapos ng deal eh may nagsabi sakin na scammer/hacker un c Mvpbreaker07….(acting concerned khit huli na nag lahat)…tapos pupunta kau sa d mataong lugar ni concerned citizen(yeah im talking about you>> [Kugmo]Pie),then tatanung nya sau kung kano nawala…..so i said 300m!!…tapos deal nya ako lagay ko raw 300k lng….tapos tinanung nya kung may FDCancel.exe ako(Force Deal Canceler)…sabi ko wala…then ask nya YM ko..bigay ko nmn…then pinasahan nya ako ng FDC.exe…tapos tutruan ka kung pano gamitin…ilalagay mo pa user and pass mo dun sa FDC…umasa ako na babalik pa ung 300m ko so lagay ko nmn…tapos f**k nung nagstart na eh biglang nagsend un FDC ng user and pass ko dun sa YM nya….PHUCK talaga!!!un…nahack pti EOHH and ESP ko PHUCK TALAGA….pti un natirang 30m sa Force Deal pti un Ifrit Mask ko sa storage nilimas!! Ingat kau sa mga nabangit na tao…
    IS THERE ANY WAY TO AVOID THE FORCE DEAL??
    B>1b=1.8k CAINTA ANTIPOLO AREA POST REPLY LNG!!

  29. Ingat nln tlg kau..kht ung GM wlng kwenta sa pRO puro salita ln cla.kht mgrep0rt k wln resp0nse..kht nka OL pa

  30. In the old times of ragnarok when you made a trade you were able to take out the item you were trading WITHOUT cancelling the trade and i lost so many MVP cards this way -__-

    Let’s say he was willing to trade a GTB card for my baphomed card. I put the card and press the rdy button. As soon i hit it he take his card of the deal and press trade so he get my item but i don’t get his item and the GM were like bla bla all your fault. My fault!? Was it my fault the game was programed like that? I don’t think so O__O

  31. lost my boy’s cap & evil ears back then(2007 or 08?), pinahiram ko sa friends ko, nung dineal ko na name naman niya ung nasa trade window, ndi siya ung nakakuha, ibang player, sinuot pa nga niya eh tapos umalis. :))

  36. @chrizel005

    Openkore. BG bot yan ano? Don’t ever trust players “selling” bots or ung mga players na nag pu-pub na “ksbot/BGbot pm me “bot”” or something. Ung mga bot programs nila na ipapadownload sayo ay may embedded line sa macros nila.

    At some point pag gamitin mo ung bot program, ung bot mismo mag p-pm ng char nila ng user/pass mo and what’s worse, maybe even pm your storage pin #.

    Nwala +4 Arta’s RWC ko, +10 Triple Slicing Specialty Jur (saving the last slot for dopel) diabolous stuff, and much more.
