haha, hilarity. In-game currency is fair game as there are no laws against robbing fake money. They want the economy to be realistic, well, this type of shit happens in real life, sucks to be those who got ripped off though.
hmmmmm sell my car, sell my computer, or steal fake money and sell it to people... tough choice.
Stabbing friends in the back? It's an online GAME, go make friends in real life.
You people and the whiny second life players should all be pelted with stones.

Hey it might just be a game but they still spent months of effort to gather that much money. To steal all of your friend's work like that for your own gain is stabbing them in the back, no matter how you look at it.

And that, my friends, is yet another reason why you shouldn't play MMORPGs.

ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US.

He used it to pay off his sons medical bills.

You whiny kids need to get off the internet and go do something real for a change.

That's no excuse, Kevin Spiess -- if that is your real name.

It doesn't matter if you steal $5000 to buy yourself a golden top hat or a ticket to save the universe, a court will still find you just as guilty. It isn't the other EVE players fault that medical care in the United States is prohibitively expensive and the cause for the majority of personal bankruptcies there.

Now that I think about it, I'd do the exact same thing. The money was fair game really, and if I could get my hands on $5,000 with no penalties I sure as hell would.

If he really was in financial trouble, why didn't he just ask his company to help? If someone from my gaming clans asked if I would help them, I probably would.

You'd give 5 grand to someone you play a game with?
