TOKENS GIRLS TOKENS!!!

Do not ever send a swap to a member when they have little or no tokens, you MUST get them to send their end to you first.

Tokens are so important!!

Even if they beg you and promise that they are trustworthy swappers, simply tell them that the rule for the site is that new members must send their end first.

I have noticed a few girls are being sucked in by pushy swappers who are wanting to post out at the same time, and sometimes our trusted long time members are being burn in the process.

Re: TOKENS GIRLS TOKENS!!!

yep, i suspected a recent "swaplifter" and luckily our swap didn't go through... here are some warning signals:

1) their pics are lifted off the web / they don't have their own pics
2) they have limited / vague / unclear descriptions of their items
3) they are pushy and demanding in their emails

Trust your instincts and good luck   :!:

How can I stop her from emailing me- they are abusive and really unfriendly- I know she lives half way across the world but she does have me address- and if she knows someone personally from around here- I am in trouble!!!!!

Rianna, just block her email address or report her address as a spam address to your email provider, they'll have spam filters and should be able to add her email address to their spam filter settings or something. Or give us her email address and we'll all sign her up to receive spam from those dodgy internet websites

Re: TOKENS GIRLS TOKENS!!!

I'm new. but trust worthy.
You all were new once too.
Did they make you send your end to them first?

O well..I don't have my pic on here either. People could just take a picture from another site and stick it on here and no one could tell the difference. So does it really matter?

Anyway.. Check out my trades if you have time.
I might be new but I've been on other sites before (Ebay ect.. )

I'm not really gonna make a big deal about the no tokens thing, yeah I look to see if they have tokens, but thats just a risk you have to take on sites like this.  Yeah theres mean people out there who steal our stuff.
And thanks for telling me to watch out and all.
But even if I am really careful, who knows I could get stollen from still.

Re: TOKENS GIRLS TOKENS!!!

hi everyone!
another person to look out for is amelia_avossa!  i almost swapped with her a month or so ago, but something didnt feel quite right.  and i have just noticed that two swappers have had their items swaplifted by her recently!  is there a way to take down these peoples profiles or have them banned from the site?  i know they have bad tokens now, but can they just be deleted altogether?  like 3 strikes and you're out?  hehe.  i also noticed that her first swap was with rianna jane, and it must have worked out fine - maybe she knew not to mess with you tongue

Hearts are from posting things on the forum.
You should recieve tokens once you swapped w/ someone. =]]

Re: TOKENS GIRLS TOKENS!!!

first I want to say that sugarbear is nice, although we didn't swap, Ive talked with her via email, and she's quite nice.


secondly, I just want to say that it angers me when you ask people if they're interested in swapping with you and they don't reply. I understand that they might not be interested in anything that I have to offer, but still, can't they say so? I don't like sitting and wondering if the person with a cute bag, or shirt just isn't answering, of if they didn't get my message.

Re: TOKENS GIRLS TOKENS!!!

I have a good one! This guy with designer purses tried to swap but I found him trying to cheat me! Here is a great way to tell when dealing with designer handbags.

1) If its a designer brand and they mispell the name more than once
2) If the picture shows the tags, and the tag is held by a white plastic band, its not designer. Also, if the tag is only one strip. Designer bags have multiple tags usually, and folded two page tags. They are ALWAYS tied with thick woven string, and look nice.
3) If its a bag that is near impossible to get, chances are its a fake. He had a certain celebrity-favorite bag that has a waiting list, so I knew it was a fake.
4) If there is ANYTHING wrong with the stiching, like it looks cheap. Always request inside pics of the bag, so you can see if it looks shiny (fake cheap silk) or smooth (real).
5) Always ask for an identification code, something to verify it with. If you have one, you can check up with the designers website and call them to verify it.

If you need help, let me know! I don't want anyone to be roped into a bad swap!

Re: TOKENS GIRLS TOKENS!!!

the way to get tokens is when you swap, usually the person that swapped with you leaves you a token saying rather it was a good or bad swap.

Re: TOKENS GIRLS TOKENS!!!

Wow- it's so crazy that people will swaplift! :evil: It makes me so mad! grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!! :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted: People that swaplift take the fun out of it for the honest swappers!

Fortunately, I have had great experiences with many swappers, such as Monique, kittyheiress16, wild_chick1992, CocoCouture, Moodleso, StevieM, MeganZaBrunette, Mckena, and iheartgod118 (to name a few! lol). You can check out my list of sent tokens to view the trustworthy swappers!!! :happy_clap:  :happy_clap:  :happy_clap:

For the time being (until I receive my 2 shirts---IF I ever do!), BEWARE of reeree92!!!!! (See my thread "reeree92" and my tokens for further info!)

Happy swapping & have a great day! :mrgreen:

I am new here. big_smile And I certainly am trustworthy. I have alread sent out 4 swaps on Thurs.

However, one swapper agreed to a swap (I almost sent my end). Then she sent an email saying, "Did you send the shirt because I may not be able to swap?" I told her I didn't send it yet, and I haven't heard back from her. She no longer has the 2 shirts she was going to swap on her list. I save the emails as proof (I save all my emails). Now I am skeptical and am utilizing private email. The swapper that "backed out" or should I say "copped out" has no tokens (new). Should I send her a bad token for doing that? I have sent her private emails via swapstyle email and she won't reply. What do you gals think??? :twisted: It makes me mad that she did that. I ALMOST sent her package, and she backed out. I think she thought I sent it! Should I post a bad token as a warning to the other swappers?

However, I did do a swap with Kittyheiress16, and it was PERFECT, and she is new. So that goes to show that not ALL new members are bad! big_smile
I am new, and I am trustworthy. I have packages sent on their way as I type!  big_smile

I agree that if someone agrees to a swap for sure, and then backs out, then that is not right.  However, if it is not yet definite and they realize that for whatever reason they can no longer swap, then that is, while frustrating, not a huge offense---sometimes things come up. (and a sincere apology/explanation makes all the difference smile )

Also, totally agree with whoever said how annoying it is when people don't even respond to say "no thanks"---that drives me crazy!  :x

Re: TOKENS GIRLS TOKENS!!!

I agree! I'm a new swapper and I'm still in my second swap but, I have offered both for me to send my item first.  I would rather be swaplifted than be a swaplifter!
