Is it possible to buy fully fitted ships (frigates atm) from escrow or elsewhere? Gathering all the mods for ships is a pain and I'd much rather pay someone to do it for me.

I've heard there's lots of escrow scams, also. What should I keep in mind if I buy a ship from escrow?

From time to time you will find people selling ships with mods, but this is usually highend ships with rare mods. The thing is - even if people do sell ships with mods, depending or your and their skills you may not even be able to use the kit that the ship comes with!

I know collecting gear is a pain, but unless you have a corp that can build stuff or your in a system with the stuff for sale, all you can usually do is go on a joyride around the various systems!

Inspect Merchandise on every item that you are considering buying.

I could place a piece of Tritium up for Escrow, and label it as a Cyclone ship for 20 mill ISK. The people that fall for it are those who buy, sight unseen.

Caveat Emptor. ugh

It's probably impossible, from a practical point of view, to buy an outfitted ship from escrow, and certainly impossible to buy one from the market. Any ship put up for sale on the market has to be repackaged, which means without fittings. Repackaging is also required for escrow for you to be able to inspect it. Otherwise, you may indeed get a unit of trit instead of the ship.

Its much easier to sit in any of the 10-20 hub stations in EVE and just buy every mod you need off the market. No travelling required.
