I’m just worried that in the case of an event, the gameflip staff might mistake the photoshopped image as a real trade. I recorded in advance and took many screenshots whereas their only evidence is two photos.
As you can see: below is the photo they photoshopped and sent as “evidence”, the name font doesn’t match the font the game uses and if you zoom in, you see my username floating a couple pixels above (not aligned properly with the trade with text) My display name is Den (goldenchan is my username)
This seller was a new seller, and I only bought because the description made it seem legit, and I’m just worried because I spent a hundred dollars on an item I never received. If any of you have been in a dispute before, are the gameflip staff usually able to differentiate between photoshopped images?
I’m glad I recorded that I didn’t receive any trade so I have video evidence which I uploaded to YouTube but this seller really scared me by putting up these fake photos. Three people here have tried to scam me but usually once I pop up with photo, video evidence, they just immediately cancel the order, but this time this seller was really stubborn and kept insisting she did send the trade even though it took her an hour to respond to my message… because she saw my dispute but she didn’t want to respond because “I seemed bad”. Then an hour later she posted this photoshopped pic after I already posted evidence of not having a trade sent. I’m so stressed. It’s been 2 weeks of no response.
I understand the staff is probably busy since they have lots of orders to go through, but this particular case is just nerve wracking because of the reasons I highlighted above… and I really enjoy gameflip usually, because it’s one of the only sites where you don’t have to worry about chargebacks and most sellers and buyers are trustworthy.
The @ symbol used is a different font and has more slant… since I worked in graphic design before, I spot these things more quickly. The bottoms of the g’s are not curved the same. And because the font used in a non-edited trade window is all a uniform font but in different weights, the edited font doesn’t pop out too much initially, but with closer observation at the font used, it becomes jarring to look at. The hanging alignment of the ui starts to clash because of the difference in visual weight.
