I am sorry but what are they supposed to do about it. You are allowed to Scam and Sell Characters.

Did this particular Scam break the EULA?

Actually, character selling scams are not allowed.

Not that I would know anything about scamming.

Says the moron, try to read before opening the stupid hole their Champ.

OP said he and 2 other people were scammed and the perpetrator was selling his Character on the Character Bazaar. Precisely why I asked if this Scam broke the EULA. The OP never made mention to the fact that the scam was in fact related to Character Sales until after I asked.

L2Read before you spill stupid all over my nice NeX Store Boots.

That would make you 1 in 100k...

You would be surprised how many people yell about such things or don't realize Scaming and Character Cycling through the Bazaar is legit.

But yeah Character Selling Scams through the Bazaar are rule breakers.

I hope you get your ISK back.

That is the problem with forums. So many soundbites and lack of care about their writing (Or is that there writing) that a number of people cannot communicate properly.

I read the original post. It seemed like a reasonable question because when I read it, I saw:

"3 of us has been scammed by a player who currently has a character on the character bazaar"

Was this a scam involving the sale of a character? Is the fact that the player is on the character bazaar of interest? I don't know. The OP did not say enough or explain enough to be clear.

In situations where things are not clear; people ask questions.

I personally think you look like more of an idiot for your flippant one-liner than Alara does.

Character scams are NOT allowed and we come down very hard on those who try it. The best way to deal with this is to simply report it to us and we will investigate the matter. However, these investigations may take a long time as often the people who scam with character sales are involved in a lot more EULA breaches and they can be RMT or hackers on top of it. When that is te case we must tread very carefully to make sure we get all the loose and that simply takes time.

As I very well mentioned later in the thread when the OP confirmed that the issue was in fact related directly to the Bazaar and not just a Scammer selling a character.

We do not take any definitive action before an investigation is completed. Until that time all parties will simply have to wait.

Investigate and that can take a long time ?

I understand that he might be a hacker but that does not mean you have to start the investigation there.
You see the transactions to buy the characters and the posts, see that the character has been sold multiple times and you resend the isk to the buyers.. Then you start investigating the scammer, because it is quite clear that he is long gone with the isk and sold or what ever he does with it.

Will see how long this takes, can't wait until fanfest for the round table discussion to address this and get some order in this... Not like there aren't any ways that could prevent scamming in character transactions like a npc recieving ISK and notifying the seller that he can start transfer and then mail a code or something to the NPC and recieve the isk instead.

But good that CCP intends to improve the big things like warp graphics and stuff like that which does not nearly affect players as much as this..

This scamming business seems like a good way to get a quick buck with little as no response until 3 days later when 2 more have been scammed.


I do fully realise that I am mostly to blame for attempting a deal to good to be true but that would not happen without scammers which obviously are getting a profit from this otherwise they would not be doing it.



Sorry had to vent a little steam.
