What Happens If You Send Money To Someone Who Has Blocked You?

Question

  • 0

If you IM with, Pay Linden dollars to, or give inventory to someone you muted, that person is automatically unblocked. Chat history informs you of what's happened.

ETA: Ah!  I read the question backwards.  Irene is right.  The answer is not clear.  It's easy enough to find out, though.  Block your alt and then have her send you L$10.  See what happens.  Even if the experiment fails miserably, the most you're out is L$10.

The resident who blocked you will receive any monies you pay over. I'm not sure how you send a note with a payment as I don't see that option.

As soon as you open the Pay window to send L$ to an av, it has a Comment field that you can write a short note in. Firestorm has had that for a while. I don't know about other viewers.

Not only will they receive the money, you will stay blocked/muted.  Like Nyll, I can't figure out how to send a note or message with a payment.

My question for you is:  Why would you want to pay someone you've blocked?

If you Block someone, they are on your "People I'd Rather Not Have to Deal With" list.  That would seem to mean that they don't have a business relationship with you, you don't buy products from them, you don't rent land from them, and they have no services you care to purchase.

If it were me, I'd pay my money to someone that I actually like.

I made the same mistake when I read it at first too, Lindal. I can imagine a hypothetical case like this. The OP owes Person B L$ for something, but Person B is really ticked at the OP and has blocked him. So, the OP wants to pay the debt, but wants to be sure that Person B will actually receive it. More than that, the OP knows that Person B won't receive an IM or a notecard, but wonders if a friendly note attached to the payment -- an apology, maybe? -- will make it through. If I were just a little bit more curious, I'd mute my alt and find out. ;)

Agree with the (blue) edit of the OP. I have tried with Alts. A blocks to B. B pay to A. A receives the L$. A don't receive any notification. B remains blocked.

If someone blocks you, and you send them money through their tip jar, this is what happens:  [12:45] SapphicFancy Resident's Tip Gwen's Tip Rose 6.0: Kit Idziak tipped you L$50. You have been paid L$50.

Or, if you block someone and they send you money through your tip jar, same thing, just said differently.

This is a 6 year old post.  I doubt the OP still cares. :)

It's old, but still a timely topic.  One of the students in my Safety class told me that a guy she'd muted years ago still sent her a little $L 1 payment every year or two, just to let her know he was still around.

Creepy.

And yes, we verified by experimenting.  If YOU block someone, then pay them, they are unblocked (and they get the money).  If someone has blocked YOU and you pay them, you will remain blocked...but they will get the money.

Yeah creepers are creative, one of my odd aquaintances was the first to buy my sole MP item ... now I'm pretty sure he has no fairy avatar... they find ways to make you uncomfortable.

One thing about the above discussion/questions that I don't see as ever getting answered:  If you pay someone that has blocked you and send a message with the payment (in the comment/message area of the pay window), they will NOT see the message even though they do get the money.
