A little incident

So! Ladies and Gentlemen,

To settle a little disagreement between an "honourable" Ransom Taker and I being a Miner, we have decided to enlist the help of the general public.

Let me tell you the situation,

I was mining in the asteroid belts when a Pirate by the name of James 315 approached me in my Orca and started to attack my ship. Naturally, He opened a channel of communication and demanded the ransom amount of 90million ISK per ship. I, of course, decided to pay him because I didn't feel like losing over 900mil worth of mining assets. So I payed him the 90million ISK BUT I accidently put an extra 0 into the figure giving him 900m instead of the agreed amount.

So, I told him this, and he continued to destroying my ship and I ended up losing my Orca, Hulk and my Implants. Valued at over 2.3b. He said that I didn't give him the correct amount thus allowing him to destroy my ship and everything i had in it.

We then took this to a station where we continued to discuss this issue and he and I both agreed that we should see what other players think.

What are your thoughts on the situation? Do you believe he should reimburse me the 2.12b minus the ransom which of course i had every intention of paying or do you believe that i should suck it up and accept that I lost 2.12b over a typo?

I think you should expect to suck up the loss of 2.12 b over a typo. James315 is never going to give it back anyway, and 99% of the people here are going to say you should suck it up. Me, I'd give it back and probably honor the ransom. Lol

Why would he give you the money back? Even if you pay him, he's not obligated to not blow you up.

Sorry to say but you pretty much got what you deserved. If you were out dual boxing, during Hulkageddon with an Orca and a Hulk, and no protection then you deserved what you got. As for not checking the amount you were paying him, that is also your own fault. Perhaps next time you will be more cautious.

I am the pirate referred to in the OP, and I am posting this to confirm that the story occurred as Edward Khurelem described it. He is not my alt; this incident just occurred and as soon as the eve-kill.net auto-posts the API-verified killmail I will edit this reply and provide a link (if permitted).

Edward and I both decided it would be best to allow the bright minds of Eve-O to mediate this matter.

EDIT:

The killmails have been posted by API to eve-kill.net, here's the link of the relevant battle (Edward was swapping between an Orca and Hulk, which were both destroyed, along with his capsule):

this wouldn't have happened if you had purchased a Hulkageddon Mining Permit to protect your assets

You're a pirate, son. Act like it. Take what you can, give nothin' back, right?

You over-payed the random and still died. And you expect him to change his mind after humiliating yourself on GD telling everyone how you screwed up AND expect any empathy from GD at all to begin with? Fake post from a alt character.

...what I meant to add in my last post but sort of inferred, was that James315 knows the great minds of EVE-O are going to side with him, percentage-wise anyway. Which is to say, you're sol.

Personally, I'd be more interested in a screenshot of the transaction logs with timestamps visible after an API verified KM is posted.

This reeks of alt, due to the identical writing style, the first post on that char, the lack of butthurt, and the name drop in the first post.

Why would I be butt hurt haha? Honestly! I thought EVE was for more mature people and if you want a screen shot i'll give you one

Oh and the fact that this is my first post on EVE forums, is because I don't value other peoples opinions as much as I value my own

Someone once said miners are the most disconnected players from the actual game. This perhaps proves it.
