I've read a lot about this, but there is a question that i couldnt find any answer:

" Why is the Character Transfer Fee 20 Euros/Dollars ? "

As far as i know, 20Euros is not the same as 20Dollars, according to XE currency converter 20Euros = 25.95Dollars.

In conclusion, if im European and my currency is Euros, do i have to pay more then an American using Dollars?

Hi all,

I don't understand , why there is stasis period for transfer char, but if people buy and pay billions they have no insurance?! I am offering to return isks if the transfer isnt done after few days or less after sending isks (confirming deal). Why CCP can't do that?! Evil or Very Mad U ppl managed to ensure safe transfer for gtc where the amount of money is way lower.

Nowadays buyers have no warranty once sellers has everything they need to scam Evil or Very Mad. This can be seen from the comments in this forum. This is not in the millions, billions here .....

I will buy character, but! this ***-purchase system is super unsafe! The only thing what remains is the grace of the CCP, and even having such a devoted team as CCP its so hard to get help but im hoping...

Blah blah blah...

CCP keeps all the money for themselves.

You can't buy ISK...but you can buy time codes from them and sell it for ISK.

What a racket.

"tvol Amarr" >>> If you're right, then the character is an illegal sale (for ISKs) ...
So if it's "illegal" then it should be banned, and if legal, must be restored. Because the current situation is a mess and chaos ..... Heaven for scammers ......

Um no...

You buy time codes from CCP and TRADE them for ISK. Big difference...

Question when trading chars do same rules apply? Should i start a post saying i am trading this char for this char, and the other buyer say he is trading his char for mine?

I hope you are just kind of dumb and not a troll, because I am actually going to give you a step by step answer.

Step One: Have ISK transferred to the character being sold from the buyer.

Step Two: Open address book, click on alt, click 'give ISK'.

Step Three: Type in the amount of ISK you are transferring to your alt and click OK.

Step Four: Check wallet to be sure it is empty.

Step Five: Transfer character.

Whether he was a troll or not, I didn't know how to do this and very much appreciated it. Thank you

Two days ago I made a fradulent "purchase" of a character , well I sent isk to a person who had hacked the account being sold I guess.

Thankfully the petition process worked to restore my loss but I'm sure that the path isn't always as clear to allow that to happen.

Two thoughts:

1) Because the fradulent sale threads are removed, if you follow the forum for weeks before you make a purchase, you'll get the false impression that nothing goes wrong. If I had seen lots and lots of bad transactions maybe I could have thought to ask the seller more information.. chatting with him about what he'd enjoyed in the game, and what regions he liked adn what country he was from... although that wouldn't rule out a smooth con-artist and it might prevent buying from a legitimate seller who just didn't like to talk to strangers.

2) The OP directions are tilted to seller. A similar set of directions for a buyer should be provided. Sure, its sort of two sides of the same coin but having directions from one side (with parenthetical remarks) could help a buyer recognoize warning signs.

Again, I'm thankful that I was lucky enough not to have lost a huge pile of isk, but if i had a better picture of how many sales go wrong, it would help.

I'm bummed that the thread I was tryign to purchase the character in was locked because I could have posted that it went wrong and everyone reading the forum could have seen that. Perhaps in the locking process a CCP mod could just put in a standard message about an unauthorized sale so least somoen following the forum could see the frequency of such things?

Im having a problem with a character transfer at the moment. I don't believe i am getting scammed, however i have paid the isk, the seller has informed me that the character no longer displays on his character screen however i do not have the character.

Now i know that the seller did start the transfer as i received a email from CCP informing me that the transaction has been started. However nearly 3 days later still no character. I have a petition open but waiting on replies is abit exhausting.

Has anyone experienced a character transfer that has taken more then 10 hours? Has CCP screwed up transfers before like this? Or should i just admit to myself that maybe just perhaps i have been scammed and might have to wait a few weeks to get my isk back?

Question about general forum posting AFTER a character transfer:

Can the new owner of a character go back and edit posts made by the original character owner?

I'm seeing several questions about issues with character transfers. The only way to resolve them is through a petition. Just wait patiently for it to be resolved as the GMs will get to it as soon as possible.

just a warning and a complaint. willdie soon is scamming people by attempting to sell him self over and over again and never transferring. i should have checked his past posts but i didnt. that was foolish of me. i petitioned the return of my isk or to get my character transferred. i await the word of ccp. i assume nothing will be done very quickly. sucks i might have to cancel a couple accounts for lack of isk for plexes.

I also got scammed (probably by the same scammer as yours c00kinemonster), the scammer who scammed me is named "Kharegan Tarn" and his alt is named "xnde". I should've listened to my guts when I noticed his broken english in our convos, but don't want to be labeled as a "racist".

I sent a petition immediately as soon as I saw the fake "char transferring" mail that the scammer sent with his alt so CCP can intercept it quick and return my isk and ban this scammer.

So how fast does a petition take nowdays regarding char scams?

As I mentioned previously I got scammed, but my worst fears is that the guy will RMT the isk and biomass the char before my petition is answered. Or even worse, I'm worried that CCP will ban my account or I lose my isk for "dealing with a scammer/china farmer" even though I was following forums rules to purchase a char.

I petitioned instantly the moment I noticed the scam to prevent the scammer RMTing or running off with my isk, since I'm sure he/she knew about the strict CCP rules regarding char scams.

the best part is when i tried to get the link for the purchase where i got scammed, ccp had locked it so now i cant link them the proof they want in my petition. i am very excited to continue paying for a game where you get scammed for billions then they delete and block the intel that they want to give your isk back.

Did you ever get your isk back? What really sucks for me is that I have to leave town soon for a few days, so it doesn't look like my petition will be answered anytime soon much less I'll be present to give more logs or w/e.

Oh well, hard lesson. Sad

Update: I sent a petition again and got an answer less than half a day, and got my ISK back. Needless to say I'm quite happy now.
