Should we at TU set up a scam in EVE?

There are many ways to make money in EVE, but one of the coolest ways is of course scamming.

Not scams using the forums, but I mean legal scams ingame.

I'm trying to figure out a way to create a bigger scam, making at least a few hundred million ISK.

Anyone interested in helping figuring a way out, and setting it up?

well you could try setting up a new corp, then on the game fourms say that you are starting up a crop and selling shares.

you business plan is to bla bla bla bla and you will get a minimum return of 200% bla bla bla. here is one that my corp is doing, this is legit but you use the same template set a few contracts up and get a few people in the corp then when you get all the money you split it up between the corp members a bugger off. just make sure you do it with an active and well establish char and you should get em flowing in.

here is the post my ex-corp member used and this "plan" is still running until november. maybe you could try using this.

I've got an idea for a short term, high profit investment oportunity. I'm not definately going to do this but I'd like to test the water and see if anyone would be interested...

First a bit about me:
This is an old char, created back in 2004. I've played eve off and on over the years, probably no more than 4-5 months subbed total before this summer.
I come from a game called ********** where I am a long-term member of **********, an outfit that had 400 active members at it's height and still has around 150. In Eve, ********** is a tiny corp of around 6-8 active players though more are interested in joining.

Market background:
I've always been intersted in the Eve modules market but never felt I had enough capital to get going. Consequently I spent most of my time mission running. Towards the end of June this year I'd got up to the princely sum of 80 mil and decided to give it a go.
By the end of August I had 5.6 bil in my wallet, all profit from trading with that first 80 mil. But why was it in my wallet and not in escrow? (no I hadn't got margin trading ) I had decided to quit Eve. I bought up a whole load of shares in various things, costing a total of a little over 5 bil (some at an outrageous price I might add!). Then somthing happened in Planetside that made me want to stick with Eve. This brings us to today...

The proposal:
It was awfully slow getting started with that first 80 mil and since I only have around 400 mil left after buying a GTC I'm looking to allow people to give me thier money to get things going.

I'd be looking to raise the cash, firstly from members of the Outcasters corp but I suspect they will not be able to provide it all. I'm aiming for 4 bil total capital.

So here are the numbers:
total of 4,000 shares @ 1,000,000 ISK each
An unknown number will be bought buy myself and others in the corp.

After one month the total in the company wallet will be divided evenly between all shareholders, this will be the end of the scheme.

Based of previous performance I'm estimating a minimum profit of 100% over course of the month.

So that's the offer. As I say, at this point this is speculative but if it does go ahead then shares will become publicly available on Thurs 27th Sep with trading starting as soon as all shares are sold and continuing until Nov 1st.


Is this a scam:
No but I have no way to prove it.

Can you provide references:
No one of note in Eve knows me so not really. I could get some important Planetside buddies in here but I suspect that won't carry much weight :)

Why are you doing this:
Two reasons really.
1. I enjoy it. (wierd I know)
2. I want to build a reputation and starting with a small, short, high return scheme seems ideal.

What/Where will you be trading:
I won't give specific details but I trade in high-end named T1 modules and some implants sold primarily at Jita.

I'm sold! How do I sign up?
Hold onto your cash for now, as stated above, shares will become available on Thurs 27th Sep. At that time I'll make a new post on the forums advertising it and giving details on how to obtain shares.

Thanks for reading.

Probably the biggest scam is the 2 account get wanted reward scam.

One player gets a huge bounty on his head, goes out in crappy ship to somewhere isolated, logs into his other account and flies up and kills himself, only to collect the huge reward.

Hence why nobody places bounties.

A good way to mess around with the newbies is setting up a corpoartion promising to help new players with a high tax rate.

Dunno why people bother though. Its so much quicker to make money trading/mission running/mining. Once you've overcome the initial grind its easy sailing.
