Yes we got scammed by Hard Knocks for tune of 19b allowing their own people to scam potential renters.
All seemed legit. So yeah just watch out
BUT when a close friend decides to quit the game because of it then it becomes not funny anymore, and genuinely pisses me off, and you know maybe after 14 years its time to pack up too…
Ive seen and done it all, but there has always been a dark side and sinister side of eve that just doesn’t sit well with me. We have seen it many times, where people have been mentally tortured to part with ISK, or led into false security to part with ISK. I mean what type of sick people do that just for in game currency?
Now fine scamming is in game but its become so prevalent its scary, when it effects people in RL its becomes not funny anymore, even worse when the people that scam are just sat their laughing thinking its funny that a person feels so low to quit the game, and that’s what they did to my friend. Enough is Enough
Its sick and twisted behaviour that I can no longer sit back and think is OK
I cant personally continue to play a game and give money to people that harbour such weird, sadistic people anymore. If they are like this in game they are surely the same out of game.
I don’t think I have ever seen any game ever be like this, this isn’t a awesome corp scam this is someone personally taking someones trust and effectively stealing from them… and then affecting them so much they quit. Its not acceptable anymore.
saddens me to say but time to bow out
