CCP great idea. Make the buyer of a character wait basically a day before the buyer can log-in into a character purchased. We have no means to verify the skill points, sec standing, positive wallet, etc.. because you have it locked out. We can not view skills on Evemon because the character is still on the sellers account.

WTF is wrong with you guys. To make is worse the buyer is completely at the mercy of the seller. If the seller does not log back in for days to complete the transfer, then we lose days of playing and training time. The seller has our ISK to transfer and use instantly. Seems the buyer is simply getting the shaft losing playing time. Good job mucking something that worked up pre-patch.

Character transfer is a no-scamming-allowed business, so the buyer can always petition for a forced ISK return and it will be done. Character sales can also be done so the ISK payment happens after 10 hours when the character arrives, and I think that's going to become the standard.

Although, CCP will need to not charge the transfer fee to the seller's credit card for 10 hours too, because the standard is "you get paid when you deliver the goods or service" as far as cash transactions in RL are concerned. If we buy something that's on back order, or for services where there's a delay before we get the service, we don't pay until the item is shipped or the service is actually provided.

So, basically, they should nerf themselves 10 hours.

Only buy a character from a seller that puts it up for viewing on any of the API sites? Or demand to get the seller's API key yourself to verify in EVEMon.

1. skill points and positive wallet are shown in eve-sheets and eve board.
2. sec status and standings/reputation can be viewed by looking up the toon ingame, view info. This tells his standings/reputation etc.

2 out the 5 times I've bought a toon, it was a scammer who took the isk and disappeared. This results in 1 1/2 week wait to get the isk back from a petition. 10 hours versus 1 1/2 weeks.....fair trade?

"If the seller does not log back in for days to complete the transfer....." I could be wrong but I think once the timer is up ccp bot auto kicks the toon on your account.

Character/account scams are worth the precautions.

If you think that a day only has 10 hours in it .......

None of what you have written seems to be applicable to the character bazaar , which is where I bought all the chars I bought from , skill sheets are linked , all the rules and protocols about transfers are there , If theres a problem with a transnfer it can be sorted etc.

Of course if you are buying/selling chars elsewhere then all CCP safeguards/help etc is probably non existant.
