Please Fall for My Scam: Jita Local

I can't resist, I love the Jita local spam.  Its an online, text based, seedy open air market.  This is gave me special giggles this evening.
[02:01:01] Shenlong Hao > Selling BHAALGORNS 950 mil, VINDICATORS 1.2b, NOMADS 6b isk to get out of negative, I cant sell via market because of my negative wallet, convo me if interested
The scam is to lure you in with the low prices ( Vindi's are 1.4b, Bhaal 1.1b, Nomad 6.7b at the moment).  Then when you do a trade with them they do a fast change with the trade window and screw you over.  With the tick lag for the trade window, the inherent inability people have to check things more then once, and greed its a popular scam.

Never accept trades from Jita that is not with your own alt or someone you trust.

And people normally have negative wallets because CCP gave them negative wallets.  For doing bad things.

Edit: I forgot to add that this is also mayne the hull rename scam. They trade you a regular ship named after the pirate faction or navy name.  People don't do a show info or notice that it is assembled.

  1. I cannot believe CCP hasn't fixed this obvious bug. How hard can it be to write proper code that requires both sides to re-accept if either side changes the deal?

    1. It does but they do the change and click fast hoping the other party doesn't check again before hitting okay. Or its the renamed ship scam. I forgot that one.

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday  so yay for unallocated skill points. Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked. In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log
