Hey!

So, I just bounced the second time into and avoided a funny way of griefing (not sure if it can even be called griefing).

Lets start from the beginning - there is this guy (whos name I will keep secret at least for the time being) who is in a noob corp but contacts me expressing his willingness to join my corp. Naturally, there is some exchange of eve mails, I ask him to turn off his silly 2.950 isk CSPA, but he says he doesn't know how...

A few mails later (and maybe I don't know, 40k isk in cspa, so still next to nothing) we are about to end the first step of getting him in and I click the envelope button to send it and the box pops up again. I nearly pressed it, but it looked very suspicious to me that it's a bit longer. I read it in case it's something else and to my great suprise it says 295.000.000 isk to pay for CSPA. Naturally I didn't reply, later I got another eve mail asking me why am I not replying, please respond fast, etc and blocked the guy.

So just be warned, it happened to me twice during a week, today the 2nd time so just passing the info further - don't get caught on this silly... I don't know what even, I can't call it a scam. This strange way of draining other peoples wallet.

Cheers!

Never happened to me that someone would try to trick me into paying more after a conversation :P I guess it happened that I'm more into the better part of the eve community.

I do this for the income and to avoid the unwanted messages. Wish it worked this way IRL too. Imagine the lack of spam with a 0.25$ charge per message to your inbox...

Heh, this is best done for those love/hate mailers when I grief... I respond, get them all Emo Raged. After about 6 - 10 exchanges of mail, I tell them to check their wallet. They then see that they've spent a mil (unfortunately the max charge), per mail they've sent to me. It's good for a laugh. Some are still stupid and don't understand the charge and keep mailing the hate, while others then try a convo or local chat to which I just ignore. Ah, simple fun for others Emo tears. Twisted Evil

CSPA or w/e it is called does not give you any income.

To all those idiots who make your CSPA charge like 1mil or something you are doing it wrong.

LOL, what a coincidence Diesel, you were one of the guys that fell for it. Remember when you thought I somehow ejected a Harpy out of my Battle badger and kicked your a$$. Man you were ****ed and kept mailing me. Oh btw, check your wallet. YARRRR!!

First: Who cares?

It seems like you added me to your address book so I didn't pay a cent.

Actually, you did, cause it was only later that I added you because you became a War Target and I proceeded to thrash your corp. But ya, who cares right? No matter, I find it very amusing. Wink

I'm fairly sure you don't get the CSPA charge, it just disappears.

Good way to generate tears though.

Pretty sure you are full of ****, the maximum CSPA is 1mill isk.

I'll jog you memory then. Here's an example (appologies for not linking the campaign from a privately set KB that's owned by a friend, but it's all on BC):
Linkage

And of course the magicly appearing Harpy that killed you:
Linkage

The rest of the kills were sadly mundane as you all limited your space time.

Are you ******ed? CSPA charges go to the "communications agent handling your transmission" or some such fluff. ugh

And all your KB links are broken.

Not it didn't. Max CSPA is 1,000,000.


So either you're lying or he was charging 295 isk and you can't read

A much better way to greif people with the CSPA:

Go to the trade channels, especially the "other" where time codes are regularly traded-set CSPA charge to 1 M isk (max allowed) Advertise PLEX for 20 M less than market-and ask for convo only. You will get great tears as people repeatedly convo you and you close the chat half way in-claim you dot disconnected. I know, I know-it is really lame, but it is nice to grief people while waiting for your suicide induced GCC to wear off. As an added bonus-people cry like little girls after the 3rd or 4th payment. lame but fun. One half star / of 4 stars

The CSPA amount is charged whether or not you accept the convo's. (It occurs when someone invites you to a conversation, not when/if you accept it).
