One day Serenity Fireater messaged me about buying my fully researched Mega BPO for PLEX. Sounded good to me as I had recently listed it on public contracts and a fast sale would be nice. Isk or PLEX doesn’t matter to me. Then ol’ Firepooper started saying she wants a station trade as public and private contracts create a record and she wants to remain anonymous. [Alarm bells are ringing, Willy] In the trade window she puts in a plastic wrap renamed “X Amount of PLEX”. I check with a few people on AT discord to confirm, Serenity Firecroch is indeed a well-known scammer. I troll her a bit longer playing the idiot, negotiating for more PLEX, getting her hopes up. Finally I agree on a price, open the trade window, drop in my precious 0/0 Atron BPC, and click accept. I have never seen someone accept a trade so quickly. Cue the laughter and mocking in private chat, Serenity bails after some half-hearted response.
Happy ending to my story, the BPO sells a few days later on public contracts and everyone who actually matters in this story gets what they want.
