Contracts expire on 3rd Friday of month. There is time to settle the contract, about one week to deliver the item/money. This, your scam, is on my server. If your character does not exist on expiration date, there is no actual contract. This is my risk. Not yours. You are not the opposite side of contract like it is on stock market - exchange is. It provides anonymity to participants and let characters “lock” the price into the future. If you don’t pay, I would have to delete your contract, but it does not exist until it is settled - 7 days after expiration, so I have enough time to deal with that risk. I could buy from Jita Trade Hub missing items, or sell excess item and offset my risk.
If in EVE Online exist something like laws of conduct, or merely corporate law - we could start argue on things like, who should be the judge. Right now we’re in Wild Wild West.
Actually I could ask not only for API but for law enforcement… You would get the right to seize the property by means of force, and I would get the protection from client (your alt) default.
But still, why are you afraid of me scamming you? It’s not my problem that you deleted the character that holds the contract… If you die, your Family iherits your posessions, if in EVE you could transfer goods after death of character, that would be the first step into Family law. Your case? Just a transfer of contracts in database from one character to the other.
Fine, enough. What are you afraid of? That you can make ppl work in your office at the desk to process the contracts, or that I take your money that you could spend with your friends on tackling and blowing up another ship?
