Templer Relleg Round 2

That dam address book is a curse at times, it’s harder to ignore a person when your convo auto opens, stupid thing… Oh well.

Templer Relleg convos me, asking if his blueprints where done, so tell him they finish tonight, and then he comes out with…

“Its done, or not? I think your mail said yesterday after DT, if im not mistaken”

Dam, I forgot I sent this guy a quote with the completion date in. Not much of a problem though instead I feed him some bollox that, yeah the blueprints are complete but I am to far away at the moment to complete the actual job. This seems to do the trick.

He then gets on to the subject of how he’s looking to create an industrial alt so he can eventually have his own Tower and Mobile Labs to research from, but tells me he doesn’t have the standing. Next thing he’s saying how he’s even looking for a corporation to join which has the standings already and form some deal with them for allowing him to install one etc… Well I saw an opportunity here for sure.

So I begin to tell him how I use to do that my self, and I had a couple of guys who needed so many research slots I didn’t have any spare for my self any more so offered them the chance to purchase there own and install it under my corporation and they can then self manage there own Towers, and in exchange I got to use some of there spare slots etc.

Well with that I felt a tug on the fishing rod as my little fishy bit and pulled. Starting to real him in I told him how it all works etc and he was very interested and keen, so much so within a couple of minutes he told me he and the ISK to purchase a small Tower and a few Mobile Labs right now and could he join my corporation and do this.

I did have one slight problem though; I no longer had any standing’s to install a Tower in empire that I was claiming, but that wasn’t going to stop me. Instead I thought I could quite easy either get him to pass me the items and I would do it, and if not and he really wanted to do it, I could just ambush him with one of my PVP alts since you can kill corporation members with no intervention from concord.

After giving him the details he needed to place an application to join my corporation he told me there was a problem.

“You cannot join this corporation as you are Gallente and this corporation only accepts the following races: Caldari. If the CEO has the skill Ethnic Relations, this would not be a problem. Notice: The CEO must update his corporation through the corp...”

Well this was proving a little harder, but still not letting this stop me I told him it was going to take an hour or so for me to train my skills to sort this problem out, but in the mean time to save time if he wanted I would anchor the Tower etc for him as it’s a 30 minute process and would save time, he agreed and gave me his small tower worth around 100 Million ISK, I wasn’t stopping there tough as I wanted them dam Mobile Labs they cost 90 Million ISK each and he had 3 of them.

He tells me how he will do them as we have to wait anyhow for the Tower to anchor and then to activate it. So my plan at this point was to bluff the tower being anchored and online and when he was in the corporation ready I would go back to my first plan and ambush him for the Mobile Labs.

A few moments later he comes back and I couldn’t believe my luck, he tells me how he’s made a mistake and the Toon he was joining the corporation with didn’t have skills to use a hauler and got his accounts mixed up, so of course I said no worries I will just anchor them for you as well, before I got chance to say any more he said come to the station they are waiting for you, like a shot I was there and sure enough I now had 3 Mobile Labs worth 270 Million ISK in total, I combined value of 370 Million ISK

During the process of this I was chatting to one of my mates in game, keeping him updated, we was both laughing and couldn’t believe how I just took this guy quiet easy for 370 Million ISK.

A few moments later,

Templer Relleg > You put the POS up at Planet XI, Moon 1, in Muvolailen, yes?
R0ME0 > nah, decided to keep it
Templer Relleg > :?
Templer Relleg > Ya kidding me?
R0ME0 > yeah lol
Templer Relleg > Good
Templer Relleg > LOL :
Templer Relleg > But i dont see nothing at XI 1
R0ME0 > you sure? you at right moon?
Templer Relleg > In muv?
Templer Relleg > Ye, theres nothing :D
R0ME0 > ah they are still in my hanger... i'm going to keep them i think
Templer Relleg > Eh?
Templer Relleg > Why? :
Templer Relleg > You havent been sitting with me in a convo here for like.. 1 hour now, to scam me?
R0ME0 > yeah

A little cruel but so bloody funny at the same time, I wanted him to have that moment of relief, yet also know how close he was... I’m sure you know how it goes most of us have been there, but this was to have a twist.

I call it the emotional Yo Yo.

Fair game to him though, he did take it well and saw the funny side to it.

“Templer Relleg : Jesus, im never gonna trust people again.”

EVE is a game with no safety nets. It's not like other games. Shit like this is what made me want to play the game even though I'm an honest player myself and don't plan to do any scams myself.

Sometimes I really do wonder what twists a persons sense of morals to make them delight in doing this to someone. This player probably doesn't even play anymore. Perhaps you were bullied at school or something. You're the real sad case here Romeo, not the guy you scammed.

well you suck.
why advertise yourself like your actually important ?

Romeo you are just more than a little sad really, the funniest part is the fact that you think it'sa cleaver what your doing, lets face it, your accomlishing simple theft through deception, not that hard to do and just demonstrates what a loser you are.

Good luck in finding a scam that does require some thought, the guiding hand's scam is by far the best in eve so far which notoriously stands as being so, even the EIB scam was just stright forward theft so doesn't count.
Any lame fool can pull off theft, it's the easiest crime to pull off.

Me sets romeo to -10 standing and hope to see him in space sometime, btw my ingame name is esquimo leviticus, look forward to bumping into you sometime, fool.

Haha, I've just been reading through some of your scams and these are great. You are pretty clever, despite what others say, in having tricked so many people, and still using the same material that works.
