Puntosmx posted a topic in Forum Games & Off TopicSo, Kickstarter is an amazing platform for crowdfunding, but there's always a risk that the creators won't deliver. But it seems they've considered their "no personal information" policy more important than keeping their site clean from scamming. Sadly, this means that scammed people won't easily trust the platform. Thoughts? http://techraptor.net/content/kickstarter-blocks-account-user-attempts-sue-scam-artist
http://ap.ign.com/en/news/11795/don-t-click-on-that-fake-gta-5-pc-beta-email There's recently a group of people that sent fake GTAV PC beta key emails. Noticable terrible english grammar in them. Don't fall for it.
For those who don't know before going into the article and reading up on the story, EVE Online is an online game that mirrors the corporate world of today on a grand scale. It's very spread-sheety and requires a lot of time to get anywhere worthwhile or noteworthy. That being said, you can also purchase game-time through in-game money for a sum of $15-$20 USD (which is initially bought in real money then sold in-game for in-game cash on the market.) A savvy capsuleer has the capacity to play his or her game without ever needing to pay real cash past the first few months. The game relies on years of teamwork, planning, and trust to get anywhere. This is one of those stories where a guy pulls off the scheme of a lifetime. Excerpt from the article: "It seems like every few months we hear about another major theft or scam in EVE Online. In most MMOs, acts of theft could earn the perpetrator a permanent game ban. In EVE Online, however, it's an accepted part of the game that people are strongly encouraged to protect themselves from. Even the game's developers have acknowledged that corporate infiltration, scamming and theft are just another part of the harsh criminal underworld of New Eden. With its latest official game trailer, CCP Games told an impressive tale of corporate theft and revenge, showcasing some of the emergent gameplay that typifies EVE. Last week, the latest big scam to come out of the criminal underworld of New Eden came to completion. The popular investment scheme Titans4U turned bad, with the creator "Bad Bobby" stealing all of the company's assets. The theft was the ultimate conclusion of a plan that was set in motion years ago. Bobby began his investment career by running several smaller schemes to build up a positive public image. Over the years, he ran increasingly larger and more popular schemes and always returned on investments. Just over a year ago, his reputation-building efforts paid off as his good name secured the successful launch of the massive Titans4U investment fund."

This final gig was pulled back in September of 2010, but it's still one of the classic heists from the amazing, and harsh, universe of New Eden.
