Got scammed, anybody know how long before Jagex will reply ?

Also know if they will do anything about the scammer? Ban, removal of items etc.

I dont' expect to get my items back, i just want the community better and that these scammers will be punished and not go away with it and continue to spam other people!

Hey, sorry to hear that happened to you. The only option is to report the scam in-game using the Report Abuse button on the chat screen. This is the only way you're able to report a scammer when the scam actually takes place. Posting it on the forums is actually hearsay. Therefore, it won't get anywhere.

You're also right, you won't get any items returned. It's really important to make sure you don't trade people items via a trust trade. I would recommend just being more careful and really second guess someone when something seems too good to be true.

I know, but will any action be taken against the player?

I couldn't report him in-game, because I waited for him to log back on. (it's only 60 second ingame report abuse) after incident.

I'm merely asking if
1) Any action will be taken against the scammer.
2). How long if/when Jagex will respond about this matter.

I'm not asking about the items, etc.

"1) Any action will be taken against the scammer."
It depends upon what happened in your case.
Not all adverse events are actionable as they may be classed as simply unethical rather than actually against game rules.

"2). How long if/when Jagex will respond about this matter."
Jagex does not usually report back to a player about the action they have taken.
How did you report the incident?
Some incidents need to be reported immediately (within the 60 seconds), others can be reported within 48 hours and others still can be reported anytime within 60 days.

So scamming another person is okay, but unethical? But it's not against game rules?

Maybe 5-10 minutes after incident.

If you did not report the incident when it occurred then no action will be taken against them. You must report the incident when it occurs. Of course it is against the rules and an ethical issue to scam someone, but its important under stress to remember to report the scammer. If you waited for a while to report them those trade screens or any other evidence is now gone. Therefore, it may be highly unlikely any action would be taken.

Do not worry though, people who scam or aren't good people often get chewed on in the end. Justice will be served in-time.

Sorry, again this happened to you. I would recommend maybe skilling to get back what you lost. Mining is pretty good money making source right now.
