How I became a scammer.
EVE is an amazing game. A little over a year ago I dealt intensively with economics and was able to achieve success very quickly. Even though trading on and between stations was profitable, it was clear to me that big profits could only be made on your own trade hubs. In order to set this up, a large amount of capital was required, which I did not had.
So to get ISK to build the trade hubs I founded Easy Invest. Relatively quickly, I had enough capital for my first trade hub and, thanks to good contacts, a list of around 900 items that can be sold very well. So I set up the station, bought the items and shipped them to the station.
The whole thing started so successfully that I was able to generate a 30% profit in the first month and I was also able to quickly raise more capital through the investment fund. For this reason, I was able to open further trade hubs after a short time, which also successfully generated profit.
My system worked. I was able to pay investors’ interest and still make a profit myself. Until the day when all the hatred of some EVE players destroyed my stations. Not because I was a competitor or upset them, but simply because they could. With no reason and no point.
That day I turned to the dark side myself. Everything I had built was destroyed in a matter of days and I realized that in order to play EVE successfully, you have to become that unscrupulous yourself. That day, I became such a person and the only goal was to collect as much ISK as possible through Easy Invest.
This is what I have done to date and it is now time to close the whole thing with over 630.000.000.000 ISK collected in total. I started with good intentions, but EVE is full of players who take other people’s property and ISK in nasty ways, and the day everything was taken from me, I became such a player myself.
