Bulk buyer approaced me in the GE to help him with a buy limit, as players often do. I first bought him a limit of red chinchompas, then a limit of coconuts, and a limit of occult necklaces. He paid me fairly for each of these purchases, so I figured he was just a collector of certain items based on his name. He then asked me to buy him a limit of lean snails. He said that although the price showed up as 2k each, the real price for lean snails was 25k ea. Since he was trustworthy up until now and had been paying slightly over GE price, I decided to trust him and help him with his collection. However, I had a funny feeling so I bought in increments, since the whole limit of 13,000 at 25k ea would cost me 300 million gp. I first bought 2k snails for 50 mil, and he paid me 52 mil. Then I bought 4k snails, and after than he told me it was a trick. He basically scammed me by telling me to pay 25k ea, even though they were only worth 2k ea. He had a sell order in the ge for 25k ea and he was able to trick me into buying for much higher than they were really worth.
