Fix Taco Truck Scam

Thats why you rp first and ask for a price before buying LOL!!!!!!

I don't think you understand the situation... 

Definition of Scam;

"an illegal plan for making money, especially one that involves tricking people"

Definition of Scammed;

"past tense of scam; I was scammed for $400"

Hence, if the term 'scammed' was used correctly, the taco driver must have told the person the incorrect price.

 

Let me show you an example of how this could've been carried out;

 

Taco driver: TACO'S FOR SALE! COME GET YOUR TACO'S! 

Victim hears the call of the Taco driver, his stomach gurgling.

...

Victim approaches the Taco driver.

Taco driver: Hello there! You looking to buy the finest taco in Los Santos?

Victim: YES PLEASE!

Taco driver: Well it's your lucky day, because right here we have the freshest and tastiest taco's this land has ever seen.

Victim can smell the sweet success of a beefy succulent taco.

Taco driver can see that he's lured his prey in. He's about to pounce. 

Victim: How much for a beefy taco, sir?

Taco driver: Normally, it's $100, but you seem like a nice enough fella. I'll do you a deal at $70.

Victim cannot believe their luck! This is the best bargain of the century. 

This is where the story turns dirty...

The taco driver knows that they've set the price of the taco to $1000... And they know that the victim has no idea...

((Victim inputs /buytaco))...

((Victim pays $1000 for the taco))

BOOM!!! THEY'VE BEEN SCAMMED!!! DAY LIGHT ROBBERY!!!

The taco driver smirks at the quiet sobbing of the victim.

...

Their work has been done here... now they await the next victim...

 

And there you have it! This is my best attempt of a story where the victim has been scammed! If this happens in an NCZ then the Taco driver is breaking the server rules! As fraud is a crime!

pretty sure scamming is allowed outside ncz but yeah they should rework the script so it shows how much your paying for a taco or a text that says how much they are selling tacos for

Let me explain...

 

Illegal activity outside the NCZ is FINE according to the server rules...

Illegal activity inside the NCZ is NOT FINE according to the server rules...

 

This is an OOC statement.

 

And I also believe scamming over $75k is against the server rules.

Do you mean against server rules when you say illegal?

Yes it’s. That’s what I was getting at within the post.

Wouldn't scamming someone(regardless of the NCZ fact) in this case be BadRP? You wouldn't exactly pay $400 for a taco with cash, that was listed as $100?

It could be a card payment, but yes if it’s cash then it’s impossible because it wouldn’t happen irl. 

 

I think majority of scams are people selling pistols for $5k.
