Was going to buy a cerberus mount through the trade screen, put in my gold, checked that the mount was in the trade screen and locked the trade. AFTER LOCKING I checked again and it was the cerb mount, but in my inventory I got a random pet chest. Feels SUPER bad that I lost my gold but please fix this issue because the last thing this game needs is scamming through broken trade screens.

id love to hear more lol. maybe a bug?

I had the same issue. Also got cat pet. US West Mari?
