Seeing as item switching in trade window has reached epidemic proportions, how about a second button in the trade window: First button locks the trade, second accepts it. So you can lock the items in the tradewindow, study them at your leisure to make sure they haven't been switched, then click Accept only once you're sure the item is what you ordered. If the other party switched items in the window, the trade "unlocks" and accept-button can no longer be pressed until the trade has been re-locked.

As a bonus feature, maybe you could disable the second button for trusted trade partners, like corp/alliance members or blues in general.

or you could just use private item exchange contracts. if you use direct trade for anyone except trusted partners, you should be scammed tbh.

Or perhaps CCP could fix the trade window so that any modification will cause the trade to reset to "unaccepted"?

Or perhaps the players could treat the "trade window" as the "give window" so they can better understand exactly what they're doing.

This is a good idea.

Dear CCP,

Please stop me from doing XXXX stupid thing because I am unable to accept responsibility for my idiocy.

Thank you for your constructive feedback and bump, Spank.

Unfortunately for your epeen, I have not, in fact, fallen for this scam. The suggestion was sparked by the endless scam spam that's now spreading even to EVEmail and private convoes.
