I have had dozens, maybe hundreds of items crafted over the years and never had a single ninja. In fact, I can't recall the number of times I've had an item crafted where the crafter refused any kind of tip or bonus (left over mats), and in many cases the crafters go out of their way to meet me somewhere.So I always find articles like this perplexing - is there *really* that much ninjaing and backstabbing happening?

Yes, there is. Don't let it happen to you.

I'm on the same page as Tinious here. Never been had someone ninja anything. I've had people turn down payment a few times. I still fully believe that there are people out there who will try to run off with your stuff, but I haven't hit it. I pay well above average though, that could play a part in it.

I don't think it's a huge problem, primarily because GMs will give you your items back and punish the thief if it occurs. I remember hearing about it happening a couple times back in vanilla WoW, but never in BC or WotLK.

I was thinking the same thing, I have had countless of enchants, gem cuts and items crafted and have yet to been ripped off... now i just have enough toons to cut, enchant and craft anything i need.

Right: it basically never happens, and when it does, the GMs will make it right. So glad we're all talking about this.

Never hurts to be safe, though. I've never been mugged before, but that doesn't mean I'll ever walk through certain parts of the city at 2 AM without watching my back.
