Does GOON pay CCP? They seem to get away with a lot and nobody cares.

Of course we pay CCP. Or PLEX our accounts, which amounts to the same. That's usually how subscription-based MMOs work.

Did he tell you to go buy that plex? If not he is not responsible for how you acquire the funds. Also you're probably one of those people that doesn't google something and calls tech support instead.

That was entirely too serious and for that I apologize.

So you got scammed, then when you came across the scammer later on, you had some... harsh words for them, insulted, swore at, and cursed everyone from them, their cousin, to their mama's toy poodle named Fluffle, they reported you for the harsh language (which is against EULA), and scamming is NOT against the EULA, and somehow you think that the other person is at fault?

Welcome to Eve, 2013, and life.

BTW, wanna join my corp instead? We're hip, cool, laid back. No shenanigans, promise.

Of course, I fell for their recruiting scam and contracted my assets to them and lost 4.5billion isk worth of stuff. I try to talk to every possible person in Goon that I can think of and tell them about this and tell all tell me to **** off. Tried to talk to Tector, La Nariz, and a few more.

All I get from La Nariz is a mail saying he has eyes in all over Eve and knows what is going on. Sad part is, he was in the convo with me and the recruiter scammer talking about some capital program they never had.

Now all of a sudden I am back on the recruitment channel seeking a corp and the same scammer using the same name sends me another message asking if I would like to join their corp. I laugh at him and tell him he is the same kid that scammed me the other day and all of a sudden I am getting a mail from some GM saying I have been warned for using harsh language toward some kid who got hurt and cried about it. That I could use the petition to challenge the warning.

So they are allowed to do whatever they please and say whatever they want and nothing happens, but when someone laughs at them for trying to scam the same person twice I get warned?

Since plex's are considered in game items, that can be bought with real money. Does that fall under fraud? that can be taken to court? Seen a news article a while back where a guy tried to sell a game account online and was scammed out of it and he ended up taking the guy to court, even tho it is against the EULA to sell game accounts, but the judge awarded the case in his favor since real money was involved and made the scammer pay him back.

So since I am from the US and this guy is from the US that means I could possibly seek the same and take it to court?


Honest question goons. Does this reach the top 10 in hauls you have made from people who think they can get into goonswarm in any way but :tenbux:

What, pray tell, is "GOON", and why does their hard earned subscription money differ any from yours?

Hey, do you want to join our corp? We are seeking experienced cap pilots like your fine self. If you want to make some isk, you can bring down 20 lokis to flip.

This is clearly nothing but a big misunderstanding.

Meh, I'll get over it. It was mostly BPOs, nothing particularly special, and the half a billion isk "deposit". Easily replaced. I'll just kill him eventually, that'll make me happy Lol

The process for getting into GoonWaffe is thoroughly documented in the avatar of Something Awful forums user 'vyst', known as "Aryndel Vyst" in EVE.

This thread seems to be lacking context. Can you give us more details about the characters involved, the sums involved,.the chatlogs so we can see for ourselves whether a prima face case can be made for a real life grid. Also more specificity about the conversation that led to your warning? Enquiring minds want to know.
