A contract hangs around forever, ie its a bad place to launder objects because CCP can see the event months later, and so can we.
Full finished post:
Hmm, so deliberately fail a courier contract of carbon, so contractor receives x collateral, to launder the exchange of OOG cash payment for isk ingame.
So, in extremis, the contractor/contractee can mask detection of the OOG RMT, by the RMT purchaser issuing a private contract to the RMT supplier, and blocking the recipient from picking up the actual rough equivalent value from the pick up point (as a cover) hence leading to a systemic contract failure, assets/cargo remaining secured, and collateral being delivered to the RMT purchaser.
Furthermore, 3rd parties/alts can be used to obfuscate the RMT laundering even further.
Furthermore, since courier contractees cant see the contents of cargo before they accept the contract, nor control access to the pick up point or delivery point, there is plausible deniability throughout.
1) RMT purchaser issues private contract with collateral to RMT supplier, equivalent to their purchase.
2) RMT purchaser either contracts 1 carbon, or equivalent equity (as cover), and then blocks access to the pickup point by that private contract receiver (or not' depending on reliability of RMT supplier)
3) Contract fails, and isk in collateral is delivered to RMT purchaser.
4) Operation is covered by plausible deniability as:
--1) Access is controlled by the RMT purchaser to the pickup point, autonomously.
--2) 3rd party/alts obfuscate the exchange
--3) Nobody knows the actual value of the cargo in a courier contract until they accept it.
Did I get that right?
Contracts are time restricted by the issuer.
That means the RMT purchaser can actualize the failure in delivery (thus receiving collateral) 24hrs after the RMT supplier accepts it.
