Ok shame on me first, I was foolish enough to give them 100m ISK for the so called "recruiting security deposit." I thought they won't scam for they have 2600 corp members and the recruiting is really formal. I was WRONG. The guy who contacted me has block me.

Yes, I was foolish to give them ISK without looking at this forum first.I don't deserve my 100M ISK back, but I just wanna let ppl know don't do that again if they (or others doing the same thing) recruits you.

GoonWaffe is such a big corp, and I don't think that 100M ISK really matters to you. How many tier 3 battleship you're losing everyday if you're really doing PVP? You just don't let my 100M ISK (which is even cheaper than a tier 3 BS) go......what you're doing is really disgusting!

Quote from their recruitement page (just google for joining goonwaffe/goonswarm):

If you gave isk to join GoonWaffe then you were scammed and you're **** out of luck.

If a 1 minute google search reveal this and you still fall for this old trick maybe it's better for you to try another mmo. And if you wanna leave you can send me your stuff.

I see this as a great way for GoonWaffe to filter out suckers and people who don't want to do research.

Do you want a bunch of easily persuaded people in your corp?

Do you want a bunch of people who won't do any research in your corp?

The OP is probably right, the 100mil is chump change. However, this is a really good filtering technique for removing those who are not going to be a good fit in the corporation.

GoonWaffe is for Goons. They don't recruit outside of Something Awful.

1 goon leader is on the csm so nothing going to happen to them
2 they do this to everyone they recuit, went to join goon on an alt and they wanted to "transport" everything i had ahead of time while i waited to get into 0.0 due to them being in a war dec, ofcourse i questioned it on another alt that was in the NC and they deny that none of their members are capable of such acts and that if any one did they would be blacklisted lolRolling Eyes

I would be interested to see the demographics of those who get scammed, namely age, level of education, country of birth and level of exposure to the real world to see if there are any emerging patterns as to where stupidity originates from.

I would agree with that statement.

What I was hinting at though is i.e. for instance I would be inclined to think that a 20 year old from Kansas would be more susceptible to a scam than say a 20 year old from Auchtermuchty.

Just saying.

Thus if peeps put there age and location when posting about being scammed it would potentially allow for the identification of "hotspots" demographically where those residing within that region / country are more "vulnerable" to a scam.

Very Happy

Really? I can't believe people are still falling for this. Goons have been pulling this scam forever. Wish I had thought of it, 100mil for each fool who tries to join :)
Goons recruiting is invite only.

I had a similar situation happen to me. Though I saw that it was a scam, and calling them out on it they simply denied it and closed chat. I don't see why you would want to join goons there are allied corps to them you could easily get into. Good luck either way.

Never give ISK to anyone -EVER- just don't.

You can thank the goons for teaching you a valuable (100Mio) lesson.

Why join them anyway?Surprised

I was thinking the same thing, don't you guys usually ask them to let you transport all their ships out to Goonspace or something as well?

Is it far too mistrustful of me to be expecting they'll see a CSPA charge as high as Icarus on Ritalin?

Goons are like that. today they killed my hulk in high sec. they joined my corp and shot me and another member. they are just griefers who use game mechanics to legally make people get angry and want to quit the game. they originated in somethingawful.com which is a site full of game griefers. unfortunately the leader is the chairman of CSM so we can't really do much about them or change the mechanics that they do these things from.

Please send me an EVE mail with the names of the pilots involved. They will be fined, suspended or kicked from the alliance for behavior unbecoming of members of the Goonswarm Federation elite PvP alliance.

You can message me if you like and find out. (I haven't had a CSPA charge on my account in years.) In fact, I think CSPA charges should just be removed from the game entirely.

Seriously, they can't control every one in big corps like that but someone's missing his job and someone's abusing with pleasure.

Yes it is a good filtering about who not join Laughing

Now to @OP: you know what to do when you hate someone and you know it's a jerk, you send him to them with recommendations. Laughing
