The interesting bit is by adding in a few words stating you have a chance.
And paying back someone with a profit the entire thing would be consider legit and the person could still make Billions of ISK.

It is called a lottery and people do it every day.
And the last thing I heard gambling wasn't banned in game.

The reason the Nigerian scam still exists is that they are looking for the most gullible people in order to maximize their score.

I love asking them to contract it out.

I'll trade Iskies for Iskies as long as it's in writing and I get more than I give.

I always get more than I give.

The funny thing about these kinds of RL scams is we generally think of them as "preying on the elderly." Apparently EvE is really popular in nursing homes.

Just like in real life. 90% of people are idiots and scum. Love this game.

Lets face it, no matter what we do in this game there will always be people way more stupid in RL.

My Main makes an easy 3 Billion a day, that's more than enough to keep me going so I think it's time to SHARE THE WEALTH! But, I'm not here to make all of EVE RICH - To receive your ISK all you have to do is play my game RISK = ISK - The more you RISK the more the ISK!


$$$ PICK ONE $$$


1. Send me 10 Million ISK and receive 50 Million in return

2. Send me 50 Million ISK and receive 500 Million in return

3. Send 100 Million ISK and receive 1.5 Billion ISK in return

4. Send 200 Million ISK and receive 3 Billion ISK in return


✔ BONUS! Send 333 Million ISK and receive 5 Billion ISK as your REWARD!


All ISK returned within 3 Min after verifying the following 2 Guidlines:


1. ONCE PER PLAYER! No really! Do NOT Send Again!!!! No ISK will return!!!

2. Your toon must be at least 2 weeks old, this is to prevent 1 day alts from being created for fast ISK. ( The Point IS To SHARE THE WEALTH! ) I WILL BE CHECKING!


Do people fall for this STILL?




Can people be that dumb?

Well, you have a sitting US president who is doing everything he ran against in 2008, and a challenger this fall who is running against everything the sitting president is doing, when he did it himself, and nobody notices while everybody argues that one is better and different than the other.

Yeah. It's possible.

Bring back DEEEEP Space!
