Beware of ISK Doublers and other ISK Donors

Hello again!

Today we are going to discuss a truly tricky and vicious scam. The basic concept is having a person playing the good Samaritan. This person is giving away ISK almost for free - you have to follow just some simple rules. One of those rules is giving a little ISK and in return getting a big pile of money.

Margin Trading Scam

Hello, fellow Capsuleers!

Today we are discussing a pretty common type of scam. This time it is more advanced than the ones I have shown you so far. Therefore I need to tell you some basics so you can fully understand the underlying system of this scam.

In EVE you have different skills for market operations.

Some more contract scams

Hello capsuleers! It's time for another blog post. This time I have compiled some contract scams in one blog entry since some of them are not worth a separate post. Here we go:

This one is fairly easy.

A typical scam: WTS PLEX, VERY CHEAP!

As the first scam I'm showing you a typical one - the PLEX scam. This type of scam is very common since many capsuleers are dependent on this item to get their EVE Online subscription going. In most cases you will get this type of contract linked in the local chat channel at trade systems (Jita, Amarr, Dodixie, Oursulaert, Rens).


Hello newbies and bittervets - welcome scammers and honest capsuleers of New Eden!

I'm creating this blog to educate dumb unaware capsuleers about the dirty tricks scammers are using to get your hard botted earned ISKies. You might ask yourself "Why is he doing this?" - already embraced by a shroud of disbelief. But I'm not mad at you. We (hopefully) both know rule #1 in EVE Online: "If it's too good to be true, it's a scam".
My intentions are pure. The current form of scamming is way too easy - everyone can do it. Sadly too many naive capsuleers fall for it (although many of them bloody deserve it). This must change. I long for a trickier scam-manship! What you see in local chats at tradehubs is not worth being mentioned in the same breath as EVE Online. The average capsuleer is keener and more brilliant than this scum. We need to cure this cancer!

So read carefully, take notes and spread the word! If you happen to know most of those things I'm posting - good for you. Brush up your knowledge and don't get scammed.

Fly safe!

PS: EVE is dying.
