Adopt Me Cross Trading Scam

There are many different common cross trading scams that happens very common, and people do actually fall for it.

Cross trading your pets for Robux, real money or trading for items from other games like bloxburg cash, bubble gum simulator pets, or any other game items is against the Roblox & Adopt Me Rules.

As you can see from the Tweet it can get your account terminated.

These rules are made for your safety since there will be no guarantee that you will get the pet you bought with other Roblox game items or sold your Adopt Me Pets for Robux.

The Selling Pets for Robux Scam

This scam happens very commonly in Discord Server or Roblox Adopt Me where they would offer for one of your pets and give you an unrealistic price for a pet like 1,000 Robux where they tell you to join a group with funds that are not theirs and ask you to add one of his alternative accounts(ALT) and give the pets first that they have offered and once you confirm the trade they will give the 1,000 Robux but at the end of the day the end up blocking you, unfriend you and don’t give your 1K Robux.

NOTE: Stay away from Unknown MiddleMan since it might be one of his friends working on the scam.

Buying Adopt Me Pets from Ebay in 2020

You do get pets or toys that you brought from eBay with real money, you get buyer protection that can help you charge-back if you have not received your pet or other virtual items.

However, the downside of buying Adopt Me pets on eBay can get your account banned if you get caught like a Youtuber Jeremy did. Here is a video:

As you can see The Adopt Me Team regularly track buyers and sellers which can lead to your account and get it banned because it is against their Term of Service.

Cash Register Scam

Cash Register is a very common scam that used to happen where they throw a party and tell everyone that they are selling Pets or items for an amount of cash. For Example, they might say:

Selling Legendary King Bee for 100 Bucks! Only 2 left


This makes people get in a hurry and join the part to be the first 2 people to buy the King Bees. Once they get their bucks they would leave the game and won’t give the pets as they promised.

NOTE: Cash Registers are not made to buy pets, toys or any other item if it was they would have added it would have been in the trading system.

Ice Cream Vans, Hotdog Stands, and Lemonade Stands Scam

This is a Similar Cash Register Scam but this time they will be using the Ice Cream Vans, Hot dog Stands, and Lemonade Stands. The scammer will be selling hot dogs, ice cream, or lemonade drink and say something similar to:

Whoever buys the most will win a legendary pet!


They will have one of the scammer friends helping him out with the scam, where the friend pretends to be the highest bidder which makes people bid more! Once they got enough Bucks they will leave the Server.

Pro Tip: Stay Away from these sort of scams.
