This list is intended to help players avoid scams or bad trades. Feel free to add tips to this list, but try not to add tips that are already listed.


  1. Know your item. If you do not recognize the item DO NOT trade until you figure out if the item is worth your time, money, etc. — CrankyKongSaysGitGud
  2. If a trade offer sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't good to trade with them. — Wonkles
  3. Always know what the item you are trading is worth. You never want to appear as a person who overprices things, or not profit enough from the items you find. — Wonkles
  4. Make sure the item the person is offering is worth as much as the item you're offering. For example, a Rare for Rare is a good trade, while Mythical for Common (if it's limited you can trade, but be careful, cuz it can be bad item) is a bad trade. — Ilovejamaa74 & Qwerxes126
  5. If you have multiple copies of an item, it's a good idea to trade those that you don't need. — Ilovejamaa74
  6. If someone has or offers you a lot of the same Legendary/Mythical item, (suspicious in the tens, probably in the hundreds or up, definitely a thousand) they are probably duplicated. Don't trade with those people. — Hades4221
  7. Try to check the other’s inventory before and try to request/make a good trade, like 2 Legendary Hats with similar stats. — Vacaseba1234
  8. Make sure you don't spam the trade, Because some people can go over 10 Mythicals, 100 Legendaries, or 50,000 Epics. And please check yours too, you don't wanna overdo it. — LadybugYT
  9. Do not leave the game when you said you'll borrow an item. You can't return to that server unless you friend that user. And please don't give it to another user. Then the user will keep it forever and ever unless you don't wanna trade now. — LadybugYT
  10. Don't accept the trade immediately after putting your items in. If you do that, there is a huge chance you will be scammed. — DigitalBroz9
  11. Don't make double deal trades - just do everything in the same trade or don't do it. — Funnier04
  12. Do not trade Robux or real money for items or items for Robux or real money. — Nina404
  13. Try not to trade your items in Mining Simulator for items in other games, unless it is with somebody you trust. Since you can only do one trade at a time, there is a big chance you will get scammed. — Custardd
  14. Don't trade anything rare for any amount of crates. — OoferGangForLife
  15. Check the stats on this wiki before you trade for it. — RealNexium
  16. Do not use fake accounts for dupe codes for free items. — Whill Pro
  17. Always make sure to double, triple or quadruple check your trade menu to make sure all the items there are of interest to both parties and that no one put something in that wasn't agreed on. — 111yxiao
  18. Never do cross-trades. If you try to do it, you have a very high chance to get scammed. If you get the item that you want to trade like midnight sorcerer, Trade it, but dont trade it for RAINBOW CORE SHOCK, instead, trade it for a Shiny Mythical pet. – Makeit182
