Greetings new pilots,
If you are still on your 14-day trial, please send me an in-game mail before you subscribe. I can get you on a 21-day trial, + a payout of 250 million ISK start-up money should you decide to upgrade to a full account.
How does that work?
It's easier than Gallentean strippers: You provide me with an email that is not currently associated with any Eve account, (!For your safety, do not post the email in these forums - Eve-mail it to me in-game!) to which I send you a buddy invite from my account. This allows you to create a 21 day free trial account.
Upon subscription of this account (ie, you upgrade to a paid account), CCP rewards me with either 30 days in-game time, or a PLEX - both worth 350-380 million ISK. I reward you by depositing 250 million ISK to your character's wallet. This is an amazing boon for any new player!
Note: If you upgrade before the 21 days are over, you keep the remaining days, but as a full account - no trial restrictions!
What's in it for you?
When you subscribe, CCP rewards me by granting me with either 30 free days of play or a PLEX. Either one is valued at 350-380 million ISK. So I get a cheaper PLEX than I would on the market, and you get 250 million ISK to start off with. It's win/win.
Why should I choose you?
It's really simple. Most people posting to in-game channels such as Corp, Local, Help, etc, typically offer between 150million and 180million ISK. Several threads on this board offer as low as 50million ISK and/or offer alternative, dubious rewards such as "tutoring", which has questionable value considering the extensive amount of guides and tutorials already out there for free, and the numerous Corps which exist solely to teach new players. I, however, am offering the solid lump sum of 250 million ISK.
Why do I do this?
To help newbies get started and to help pay for my account.
Why do you offer so much ISK? Sounds fishy.
It's true that it's in my favor to offer less money: If I only paid my clients 50million, I'm better off. However, I dont't think it's fair to take advantage of rookies like that. And yes, this is a business for which there is a growing market of "inviters". I do make less profit with each client that upgrades than someone offering only 50million. However, by offering a more fair deal, I beat my competition out and increase my clientelle, and I provide rookies with far more favorable starting circumstances.
Is this legal?
Yes! It is totally legal. I even asked a GM about it after reading the EULA to further clarify, and recieved this response:

Offering ISK to players that accept your buddy invite is not a violation of EULA or Terms of Service.
Let me know if you have further questions.
