Beggers, what's your worst experience?
So I was in a trade server one day, and up pops a guy (or girl), who wanted to trade me. I accept, and once we're in the trade he asks if I want to freetrade my 70's Chapeu to him. And I'm actually thinking at first: "Freetrade? Is that a new term or something?" So I went on to ask him what he meant by that and he replied: Can u give it 2 me for free?" And I just..."No."

And this is where he goes on to write "FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCKKK UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU"

"♥♥♥♥ING SCAMMER, I'LL REPORT U"

I'm just blown away, mind you this was my first interaction with anyone like him, up until that point I had had nothing but good mannered trades, belive it or not xD

I reply: "Report me? For what!?"

"♥♥♥♥ U, U DON'T GIVE FREE HATS, YOU'LL BE BANNED"

After that last message he just broke off the trade and left the server, and I sat there a tad stunned before I caught my senses and went on with looking for trades, merely chuckling for myself at the amusing encounter with one of the begger species 8D

I was on a server, and we were having bets. I betted something and the guy i was fighting betted something. I beat him, we trade. The thing is that the item he betted wasn't tradeable. So I got nothing. The thing is that if he won, I would of gotten scammed.

I didn't get anything, and I didn't tell anyone. It was just a weapon, so it wasn't a big deal to me at the time. May not seem like a begger situation, but it felt like one to me at the time.

While poking around for trade offers, some guy added me on Steam. I accept, and he/she goes on to offer me a Strongbox key for my Unusual Gridrion Guardian.
Later on, a guy offered me his Strange Jarate for a bunch of my Stranges (including my Festive Strange Black Box), though I'm sure that he/she was just trying to put me off (I offered a Strange earlier for his Jarate, so I'm sure his counter offer was getting this message across: Buzz off.)

Jekyll hyde traders are pretty common esp with beggers. They'll plead beg, claim they are poor, praise you etc...but If you dont' give them a deal they flip on you in a second and their true face comes out.

So its just best to say no...sorry... right away and remove ...

I haven't met any beggars, but what I hate is when someone adds you and asks for something you're not selling.

I'm on a trade server, I sell some stuff. Guy invites me to trade, I think he might want to buy some of my stuff. I say "Hi" as always, and I get "plz gift me your scorching flames mullet i will love you forever plsplsplspls"

I cancel the trade and have an implied facepalm.

I can't get good legit trades, I'll offer 3 good hats and 2 refined for 2 hats, and everytime the guy Iam trading says some stuff like "my hat is worth like 2 keys u have any keys" or "my items are worth more scrap" WHAT? I don't care how many crates or keys YOU THINK your item or hat is worth, Iam not giving you way to much stuff for your one or two hats.

yeah beggars are annoying, and people who ask to buy stuff im not selling, im nice and never try to be an a hole but some people i just straight up block, i also hate it when i put in y trade that item offers should be posted on outpost and specially when i put on my notes no killstreak or collector weapons, yet people offer me their specialized enforcer for my bills, i aws poor in tf2 too you just got to trade and learn your way around it aint that difficult

I once had an Indonesian kid ask me if I'd like to donate to the bud collection he was just starting...

I don't know how these "beggars" think. What makes them think that random people will give them items for free let alone while asking like a jerk and got butthurt when you decline.

I never have to worry about these "beggers". i decline most of 'em and the few that i do allow always seem to look at my profile. After they do that they start to insult me and before i can say anything they close the trade and then they leave the server lol.
