Posting to say i have had nothing but trouble with the link for the invite, i am reverting to email invites only. People have been getting starter isk from me and when ive checked they never even used my link or my invite. Could just be me but when you send an email invite at least u have something to trace it from.

Usually i start the month with a postman!

This happened to me through his service, I am relatively sure that i used his invite link from his forum post. I am not showing up for him as he has stated. He has still sent me starter isk, he is a very trust worthy individual, he is even letting me keep the isk. I also want to say that he has done this for myself and my fiance, so that is x2 the trouble.

I am trying to find out "who" got my invite credit(I have not subbed yet, but we will be). If anyone has any info on the matter our emails are:

& our In-game names are:

Again, Giuseppe is a great guy and I feel awful about the situation. I would really like to find out who the buddy invite was through, because even though i am almost 100% positive i used his link, it is not showing up on his end.

I have also opened a petition to gain more insight on this situation, and have the issue solved.

I got an invite from Seven Noctis. He patiently answered all my noob questions and gave me my isk almost immediately. I have nothing but good things to say about him.

Yeah, man. I've had a number of people asking me for money upfront when they had no intention of using my invite just to get some free ISK.

With the public links, there is no way to know that the person used your invite until they actually upgrade their account. That's expected; that's just how it works. That's also the reason why I don't offer any ISK upfront to people. It would only enable scammers and that is something I'd rather not do.

Its a mess as it only shows just the time and date the link was used, i have lost isk to try to maintain my reputation and i now realise the system via the link is broken and ill never use it again. I have dished out isk to people today who were saying i owe them starter money etc, when i checked who used my link none of them had!!

When you upgrade, the person whose link you used will see that an account using their buddy invite link was upgraded. They will be able to see the exact date/time (down to 1 second) of when that happened. If you send them the exact time of your account creation (which you can find in account management -> account -> transaction history), they will be able to verify that it was indeed you who upgraded the account.

Hello Eve

Vhei Sambos is the guy that helped me start off smoothly here on eve online.

I took advantage of his offer, watched his channel on youtube for some basic tutorials. I email him and few hours later his there ready to help you. He will answer all you're questions regarding eve online. The guy is great and will always be there to give some tips and advice on how to play EVE. I highly recommended Vhei Sambos for buddy invite.

Now I'm here enjoying EVE online at it's BEST Lol

" Hi,

Thank you for contacting us about this issue.

We recently introduced the Open Buddy URL which is an anonymous link that players can share to give an extended trial and also receive a reward when Buddy accounts are upgraded using an eligible payment method.

Please note that as the open Buddy URL is anonymous then it is intended that accounts created using the Buddy link will only appear in Account Management once the Buddy account is upgraded. Due to this being an anonymous invitation then we may not reveal information about either the inviter or the buddy.

You can confirm that your account was created using a Buddy invitation by logging into your Account Management page and reviewing the Transaction History. Here you will see that your account was created as a 21 day trial.

Please would you try speaking with the person who invited you again as they may not have been aware of the different way that these invitations are displayed. If you continue to have problems with the agreement please contact us again so that we can look into this further and take any necessary action.

Fly safe!

Best regards,
GM Hummingbird
EVE Online Customer Support

Do you want to try out EVE Online but want a 21 day trial instead of the normal 14 day trial?

Do you want to START your trial with ISK (in game currency) so you can focus on playing and not being poor?

Then I can help! To watch a video outlining my offer, CLICK HERE!

WHAT I OFFER:

  • Start a 21 Day FREE Trial through my buddy invite and i'll give you 5 MILLION ISK, NO OBLIGATION, just for starting a trial.

  • If you upgrade your trial to a paid subscription within 3 weeks, I split the bonus I receive 50/50 with you. At current prices this amounts to 275 million ISK your share (enough to pay for all the skillbooks you need as well as roughly 65 ships you will start out flying, such as the famous rifter!)

  • I'll even give you ANOTHER 10 MILLION ISK if you post a short comment on this forum regarding your experience with me! (I'll give you the instructions on how to do so once we're all done).

  • I offer you FREE one on one help and FREE video tutorials showing you simple, yet powerful methods enabling you to make enough ISK to pay your monthly subscription fees. THAT'S RIGHT! You'll become so good at this game it won't even cost you money to play!

  • I can help you find a corporation (guild) to join such as the one my main is in which has over 600 members, gives out free cruiser ships (advanced ships, not newbie ships) for their daily pvp operations and accepts brand new players!


  • To receive your 5 Million starter ISK, after creating your character, email me your new character's name and I'll send it ASAP (within minutes if i'm in game, otherwise 12-24 hours). This offer is only good once, for one account per player.

  • To get your 275 Million ISK bonus you must upgrade your trial to a paid account within 21 days by one of the following ways: Credit/Debit cards, PayPal, WebMoney Transfer, paysafecard, ETC (Eve Time Code [such as a game time card purchased from a retailer]), Nexon, Ukash and iDeal.

  • Payments NOT ELIGIBLE for this offer:

    PLEX (in game item), Direct Debit, CD Keys, including CD Keys purchased or received from non-CCP sources and online stores such as, but not limited to: Steam Store, Direct2Drive, Gamers Gate, Impulse Driven.

    As soon as I receive the bonus from CCP I will forward your share (275 million ISK) to your character. It can take up to 24 hours for me to receive this from the time you upgrade your account if you used any eligible method other than paypal and up to 3 days if using paypal. Please send me an email as soon as you upgrade your account so I can better coordinate your share!

    Below are a few quotes from those that recently took advantage of my offer:

    I highly recommend Vhei Sambos. His 5mil started bonus can really help trialers get into their first decent ship and learn to love this amazing game =) Added with his amazing amount of help for someone still a trial, when i subscribed he sent the 300 mil in under 20 minutes. He was also able to get me into an amazing corporation so i don't play by myself in an npc corp or struggle to find answers to my questions. =D Vhei Sambos you wont regret it!
    Alden Reede wrote:
    Vhei Sambos was quick, friendly and true to his word. I received the 5 mil at sign up, and the 300 mil at subscription. I cannot express how big of a leg up this is. If you are interested in these 21 day trial deals, you owe it to yourself to go to his blogspot and sign up through him. Not only does he come through with the ISK, but he also gives you an intro to his corporation, and helps you really learn the game. Really great experience!

    I would like to thank Vhei Sambos helping me to get a Buddy invite, and helping me both before signing on, and also stopping by in game to ask if I needed help. Also got a Youtube video that explains how to use it. Regards, Claudewil Ellecon
    IS THIS A SCAM?

    No. This is a legitimate method of promotion that CCP (designers of Eve Online) have devised to get more players into the game. Scams regarding new account subscriptions are NOT TOLERATED and I am providing the following quote from CCP:
    CCP Navigator wrote:
    Dear EVE Online players,

    - Any forms of scamming are prohibited and will be dealt with by EVE Online customer support. These are transactions which affect new subscriptions and scamming may result in action being taken on your account.

    For any questions related to the Buddy Program please use the petition system.

    If you have any questions regarding the Buddy Program don't hesitate to contact me, or use the link above if you want to talk to CCP directly.
    GOOD LUCK AND FLY SAFE!

I took advantage of Vhei Sambos offer. He was very prompt on delivery of all promised funds ( within just a couple hours.) and offered some really good advice to help a newb like me. If you are looking to join eve I would highly recommend Vhei Sambos Buddy Program Offer.

I started with a 14 day trial yesterday. Is it too late to do a buddy trial? I am definitely going to subscribe, and see some good offers, plus could use some friends in the game.

I used Vhei Sambos' offer. All of the funds got to me in a timely manner, and he was more than willing to help if needed. I would definitely recommend him if you're thinking of joining Eve.
