Caveat Emptor "buyer beware". It's the responsibility of the buyer to do his homework. A simple, "where are any jumpclones located and what implants do they hold" should suffice.

Who's to blame? -the buyer respecting his part of the contract or the untruthful idiot thanks to who a new rule is added?

If that guy (seller) was looking for his 10min of glory I think he just got them, now should we "clap" or [:doublefacepalm:] ?

What happens to the guy that buys a toon with a Carrier as part of the sale 9not unheard of), should they expect that to be in high sec as well since their new toon is? just saying....

so much hand holding going on in this game as is, lets not add more.

You realise that people have more than one set of implants, right?

Anyway, not really a scam. There's nothing to gain from doing it besides tears. So just ask where the clone is.

The point!
The clone with the implants is in a station in territory
which has a high chance of losing said clone as soon as he undocks!
Furthermore, the buyer didnt actually get what he paid for!
A clone with implants in highsec!

Saying "he didnt ask" is bullshit. The buyer was *mislead*!

The buyer now feels screwed and spreads the word!
Its bad for character trading business as a whole,
especially considering that CCP takes that part of their income pretty seriously...



This.

Don't.

Do it.

Period.

If you do, go die in a hole somewhere out in space.Twisted

Rule 6. Items cannot be listed among the character's valuable assets, only skills, implants and reputation. You are buying/selling the character ONLY and nothing else. Ships and items can be readily bought on the market for ISK.

Just saying....

This is my point, once apon a time you could add things like carriers into deal, now you can not...

I fail to see how its a scam, as the inflated character price must be offset by the expensive implants, regardless of where they're located. It does, however, make you a **** to be so nasty for no actual reason.

Post with your main, like a BOSS!

And no, i don't live in highsec.  As if that would make your opinion any less wrong.

But you've missed the point. If the seller says "The character has a clone with such and such implants" then he has not been untruthful. If he lied then that would be a different matter. Any untruthful statement is a misrepresentation and renders a contract voidable.

It would be up to the buyer to ask "and where are these clones/implants?" Legally, you could make the argument that the seller has made a "half-truth" but either way, if you are buying something, do the due diligence and ask the right questions.

And you felt the need to make a snide comment?


Scamming of any kind is completely wrong in character trading, AND real money is involved in the transfer fee. If you plex scammers can't figure that out, well just go back to Jita spamming. ANY type of misrepresentation in a character transfer and you will feel the wrath of GM's.

Bet on it.

The sell post must reflect the character correctly, posting that the character you're selling has more skillpoints or ISK than it actually has is a bannable offence. Similarly, a seller must disclose whether jump clones are located in 0.0, lowsec or highsec space.


Apparently not!


Edited today. Congrats, OP, you made a new rule.



Yeah, no bet. Seriously, it's only a 3 page thread, and most of the replies are short. Is it really that hard?
