At Christmas, people are usually more generous than in the rest of the year - this also applies to WoW players. Is that the reason why scammers are crawling out of their holes right now and trying to pull the wool over the eyes of unsuspecting people? We don't know that either. What we do know is that this is exactly what is happening again in WoW. After the last wave of scammers was in BC Classic, it's now live WoW's turn again. The new scam of the scammers revolves around pets and players who misjudge their value.
How cute - can I have this?
The alleged scammers write to other players in a whisper chat and ask if they can have or buy one or more specific pets from the victim's collection. Sometimes this is to complete their own collection, sometimes because the pet in question is so cute and they would like to walk it.
Of course, the scammers don't target any 08/15 pets, but exactly the variants that bring a lot of gold in the auction house. And this is exactly where the frog gets the curls! Very few WoW players have even the slightest idea how much which battle pets are actually worth. It's easy to give away a pet worth 300,000 gold or more, because you have another one in your collection anyway, and the scammer is happy.11:43

Check the value!
In principle, there's nothing wrong with giving to other players. Especially beginners, of which there are still a lot in WoW (buy now ), are happy about gifts that are significantly more valuable to them than to us. Among them are especially strong battle pets. However, before you give away your pets, you should check their value in the AH. Or, if you are on a small server, on a website like Underminejournal.
And also, if someone else wants to buy something from you, it is a good idea to check the price. Be it battle pets or green armor items, which can often be very valuable for Transmog fans.
