Hello C&P,

Some of you know who I am, some don't... its ok.

Let me introduce myself.

I am Barbie, of the Spaceship variant, Amarr Edition!

I am the "tritanium" scammer.

Every few years I host a Christmas X-Mas Gift Exchange in Amarr! This year I am expanding it to include any pilots in Eve-Online that would like to participate.

This is how it works:

You contract me ("Spaceship Barbie" or my Holding toon "Barbie Claws") any item(s) over 5million isk. On X-Mas 2016 I will log in, and re-contract out all the Presents.

The only requests for this Gift X-Change are:

NO JUNK! Give something you wouldn't mind getting. I will reject contracts with 5mil worth of trash in them.

High Sec Locations ONLY! (no islands please)



The gifts are already starting to come in from Amarr locals. If you want to get in on this Event this year, just follow the above points.

115 people participated last time, hopefully some of those people will pop in and endorse this.


Yes, I am aware I am a scammer requesting people blindly send me items on faith. Anyone that knows me, knows I can be trusted.


Thanks for your time and consideration,
Spaceship Barbie

It was a clever leap from Valk's give away, but overall it's a fairly lame scam. Setting the bar low at 5 mil was also clever, but then again you lost me at 'no junk'.

I'd rate your scam a 2 for originality, 7 on timing, 5 (maybe 6) on the details, and (the big one) 0 for you choice of location. Put this on any forum but C&P. This forum section contains the folks that give girl scouts the spankings they deserve and still don't buy any cookies.

Feel free to analyze the heck out of it. This is not the first event I've thrown, this is just the first i posted online here. And its fitting in the C&P forum. Its a Scammer Hosted Gift X-Change.

This is the first time I've posted on the forums I believe... so you can pretend to yourself I read the other posts here, I didn't. Pirate





on the no junk thing.... if I was just scamming I would take anything and everything. but I am not, so its got to be a worthwhile gift. Examples of a few things people gave last time:

1 Lux Harrison covert ops cloak x1 ->
2 Karamiel Zhan vexor x1
3 boom boom longtime jump drive op skillbookx 1
4 kokuathu heavy interdictors skillbook x1
5 seed of destruction imp navy slicer x1
6 culpeo fawkes improved cloaking device x1
7 martyredheart repubfleetfiretail x 1
8 meagerminer monophonic stabilization act x1
9 kiyoshi ronin knight bestower x1-cargorig x1
10 mrwissan caldari navy larhe shield extender x1
11 armand cinnabon arbitrator x1
12 kiro overson arbitrator x1
13 Amandine Degaule succubus x1
14 ISK faucet 5x venture/1x navy comet
15 Amelia Aran - fed navy comet x1
16 sekimori yuki rupture x 1
17 tklee arbitrator with liquid rigs
18 kelzhul - trimark harb
19 Archangel Azazel - rupture
20 jake spear - succubus
21 tao zedong - bellicose
22 random hunter - 4x 425mm autocannons
23 tenla amarr - form black shirt24
24 Alvia fontinalis - procuror



notice, no trash. I keep a list of every person, the item they gave, and what item I gave to them.

To anyone concerned that my 2016 X-mas Gift Exchange is a EULA violation because of the upcoming Gambling Changes to the EULA on Nov 8th 2016:

I petitioned my Event, and it does not qualify as gambling under the new EULA, as it is not a "Game of chance held by a 3rd party"

There is no "risk, chance, gamble" its not a lotto, raffle, or anything like that.

Everyone who gives a present gets a present. There is no "chance" of getting a present. If you give one you get one.

Thanks to everyone who has submitted a Present so far!!!!! Keep them coming!

It's ok if you don't trust me, I am a scammer after all.

People who know me, know I don't waste my time explaining myself too often.


If you believe, you believe, if you don't, you don't.

Thanks for the reply tho!

I endorse this product and/or service.

TLDR its legit, until now you had to hang out in Amarr local to find out about it. So send Barbie that old bling mission cruiser collecting dust in your hanger bay.....you'll get something in return, altho no promises if it'll be worth as much......

Everything in EVE is a trap.

And if it isn't, it's your job to make it a trap...:)

You want to know what immorality in EVE Online looks like? Look no further than Ripard "Jester" Teg.

Scammers in Eve are quite often misunderstood.

Not going to post a wall of text highlighting why, but quite often what is taken away with one hand is in one manner or another, given back to the community with the other.

In light of this, willing to bet that anybody who plays Barbie's gift exchange will be pleasantly surprised at the outcome.

Rather excessive, but I for one was saddened when Guy Fawkes and Halloween lost their valiant rearguard action against Christmas in October. :-/
