Aug 30 2006Biggest MMORPG scam ever executed
I'm not familiar with how Eve Online plays, but apparently a player in the game pulled off the biggest MMORPG scam in the history of gaming. Over the course of four months, a guy named "cally" ran a player-operated bank called "Eve Intergalactic Bank" where hundreds of players deposited money. The bank offered interest, loans and insurance like every other bank, except that one day cally decided to grab all the money that was deposited and fly off to space with an alleged total sum of 790 billion Isk. In real life that would translate to $170,000. Which is why I've decided to quit my job and scam online gamers for a living. Why flip burgers when you can just invent imaginary banks and run off with billions of dollars?
