Barracuda II 3RD party service abuse report

No longer than an hour ago my corp mate got scammed while using BarraCuda II's ( https://gate.eveonline.com/Profile/BarraCuda%20II ) 3rd party service.
The deal was around a Ragnarok purchase and the price agreed upon was 105b. We did advice our corp member not to use BarraCuda's service and to wait for either Chribba or Darknesss to go online, but he did not manage to catch anyone of them online for a pretty long time yet so after looking at this page which is moderated by ISD dudes http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/3rd_Parties he decided BarraCuda was safe enough.
Turned out it wasn't.
Right after my corp mate sent the isk to Barracuda's alt confirmed by the main:
Quote:
[ 2013.08.04 17:46:30 ] BarraCuda II > I'm just finishing a nyx trade i'm burning my alt Ben OB down to supervise the trade, How much is the ragnarok selling for and what fitting?
[ 2013.08.04 17:47:10 ] BarraCuda II > im going to bring my alt in to this convo to

http://clip2net.com/s/5vzRBt
he and his alt logged off after writing "#REKT" in local and the whole deal turned out to be a scam.

So I would like to warn everyone regarding Barracuda being a scammer and ask ISD to edit the trusted 3rd party service page to avoid more people being scammed.

Just in case: the seller name was Derp Mcgeeee.

From the Wiki:

Quote:
Warning: This page is locked from being abused, Any unauthorised modifications to this page will result in a temporary ban. Refer to the bottom note to get your name added to this list if you're a vouched for 3rd party


Quote:
Please note: Contact ISD Rex Apollyon if you have valid proof of handling super capitals in the past, Anyone without proof will not added to this list


To be fair, a list like that has absolutely no place on the official Wiki.

Sorry for your loss, use Chribba next time.

Presumably because the OP is pointing out that there is a page on the official Wiki, that can only be edited by ISD that offers "vouched for 3rd party".

Eve...hash place...blah blah. That list shouldn't exist in any form on any official sites (unless it's open to all) and I can see why the OP might want to bring this to peoples attention.

Yeaaaa.... there's absolutely no reason why ISD should be interfering in Eve's trust-based system by keeping an 'official' list of 3rd parties for supercap trades.

Who would have thought that a wiki page that has been created & edited exclusively by Derp Mcgeeee and Trollface dlngus might not be trustworthy?

And that someone might insert an image that says "Locked" inside the body of a page when the page actually isn't locked at all ... in EVE of all games! I am shocked.

(If you have trouble following me - compare the location of the "Locked" image in an actually locked page like https://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/EVElopedia_policies and in the fake "locked" page http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/3rd_Parties

On the "3rd party" page it is just an image that has been inserted into the page body, the same way you would insert any other image. ISDs had no part in this.)

CCP's official wiki as a scam means - I think not the best way for it to be used, especially if all the fake ISD referances are made by the scamming players.
Besides, acting as a CCP (maybe even ISD) representative while not actually being one might be forbidden by the EULA, not totally sure though, needs checking.

Anyway, this thread is not a discussion of how dumb my corp mate acted or a call for justice, it's just a warning to all other players which might fall for the same scam.

So now the wiki page got edited, which means the creators suspect that might not be totally legal.
I'm totally sure CCP has page edit histroy logs, so it might be worth a petition just in case.

FYI, using ISD references like that is a EULA violation. It's the equivalent of pretending to be a CCP employee.

@OP, submit a petition with details of the Wiki page.
