I would like to make players of Eve online aware that our briefly trusted director Petrus Justinianus was discovered to be a scammer who joined the corporation in an attempt to gain our trust as well as access to our resources.
Last night around 1am, Petrus introduced me to a friend who he recommended I pay 2b ISK UP-FRONT to Dr Wilson for pilot recruiting services. This set off some red flags which made me ultimately demote Petrus from the director roll until I could be certain he was not a scammer. One of the things that made me suspicious of him was that he had been in 10 corps in the past few weeks.
I was able to confirm he was indeed up to no good when we discovered that Petrus had used his director privileges to assign himself 100% of the corporation’s shares. Luckily Petrus was demoted before he was able to steal any assets.
With 100% of the shares, Petrus seems to have completely taken over the corp. Luckily our assets were moved out, and we were able to reform the corp without much trouble.
What I want is for everyone to be aware that Petrus Justinianus and Dr Wilson are working together to scam new corporations out of billions of ISK by first gaining their trust, and then convincing them to pay high up-front costs for services that likely would never have been delivered.
While we managed to avoid the scam, and avoid losing any assets or ISK, we did lose our corporation due to Petrus Justinianus granting himself 100% of shares.
