For starters, I'd edit that name out as naming and shaming is against forum rules. No matter the circumstances.

Then I'd remind that DE does not enforce any trades based on promises, and that this is plastered in several in-game places precisely to warn the player against that. There is nothing that can be done regarding your items, but if you have proof and can submit it to DE on their Zendesk you might just cause the ban of yet another of these dirty cockroaches that stain our community.

Sadly you are not the first. Won't be the last either. Learn not to trust anyone on the internet. Such deals can be made, yes, and I've done some of that kind myself. But only with real life friends. In any case I wish you best luck in the future.

so, you expected to get something worth ~200 plat for 42p how does that make any sense to you?

I see you are a PC player. The coupons we get on the PC are for money off plat. On console, the coupons are different. They give a reduction on the amounbt of plat spent. So on PC you will get 75% off your next purchase of platinum, whereas on console you will get 75% off your next purchase WITH platinum. Something valued at 200pp can be bought for 50pp. The exception to this is tennogen and bundles. On XBOX I often use my reduction bonus on skins.

Coupon trading is against the EULA and ToS.  Do not do it.  Not only do you run the risk of being scammed, but you run the risk of being banned.

They can't, we're explicitly told that DE won't enforce trades for promises.

That is incorrect.  DE can act against bad actors in chat, even though they've said they don't enforce trades for promises.  Those two things are not mutually exclusive.

I didn't say they wouldn't punish the scammer, just that they won't actually help OP. 

Punishing the scammer with a warning or a ban doesn't solve the problem of being scammed out of plat previously.

You need to be carefull .... "buying"/trading coupons its against the ToS , and its a reason for ban .

He did not make any action against the game rules so NM cant do anything to him . He ask for plat and the other player gave it to him ...

"Non-Warframe Item Trading: Trading in-game items for non-game items (including cash) is a violation of the Terms of Use/EULA, and can lead to your account being banned. If the items can't be traded within the Trade UI, it is not a supported trade."
