Counterfeit Items??

Postby Ashlyn (110955555) » Mon Aug 31, 2015 8:42 pm

Recently when I click to view a player's outfit to see what the name of an item is, I see that either their hair or another article of clothing, usually the female blonde medieval fantasy hair or blue/pink retros, show up as a counterfeit item. If it's counterfeit, shouldn't the vikings take it out of the game so that they don't get that expensive item, even if they can't trade it? Shouldn't they be unable to wear an item that they did not work to receive?

These people got these items back when a hack was done when Zynga owned the game. Before you could see the name of the item in the trade. All you could see was the picture of the item. Therefore these people did pay a lot of coin for these items. It would be really unfair to remove these items now. I believe they are no longer tradable. Most of these items were made out of free gifts which i believe is why we no longer are allowed to trade free gifts. Im not expert anymore but thats what i got out of this problem back in the day.

...when BVG took over the game there was the discussion about what to do with all those hacked items...
...which been coded from hackers out of some of the older free gifts...
...at first...there was the idea to just delete them all...then it got decided from BVG to let those stay in game...
...but to make them untradeable and ungiftable...
...sadly this affected not only the faked items...it affected also all older free gifts...
...which are now a punishment for all loyal players who own those cos those also can't be gifted nor traded...

...when they introduced the ability to save outfits...those items got marked as *counterfeit*...

...*hugs & love*... :hug: :heart:

try going to a random event or joining a buddy and asking them to view your outfit with it on and see if it says it is counterfeit or not

i totally agree but i still see people selling items from back then ??? like pop sneakers how???? how is it saying mine are counterfeit but theres aint ? and they can sell theres im still happy i get to wear mine though but i think if there was hacking going on on the free gifts then no one should be able to buy them anymore

seems a little unfair like SanChyie has stated


i have 5 pop sneakers 4 yoviile shirts and 5 zynga shirts 2 light destroyed skinnies and more but there all showing up as counterfeit
