The Cooked Meat/Fish Scam is a scam which is most commonly seen with things like Lobsters and Swordfish. The scam is not yet extinct, but now rarely works because of the new Trade Screen update.It also does not work anymore due to the fact that raw is now worth more than cooked. This scam breaches Rule 2 for Item Scamming.

This scam is also not possible due to raw fish now being worth more than the cooked variant.
