I made a post on this form a while back and was offered a position in GoonWaffe if I placed a 500m deposit. I realize I was nieve and stupid, but for some reason I found it hard to believe that a member of a corp that is not supposed to engage in scamming would approach me. I was wrong.

It seems that this corporation does not condemn scamming, because the money that I gave went to an office belonging to GoonWaffe. At the very least the member of this corporation that set up the scam (Manbeef Largeyams) was using corp property to execute it.

I would advise everyone to beware of this corporation, and definitely don't give out money to them.

Quoting this part cause it made me laugh. Really more like a laugh within a laugh, cause I was already laughing at the post. Goons have been doing this since supply-side Jesus walked the earth.

Also, try looking here next time, nubcake, especially the bit where it says:

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

Doing the slightest bit of cursory research into a corp you're planning to join is usually a good idea, bucko.

One of the staples of EVE is people like you, from time to time, posting here about how they got scammed out of 500 million. This is EVE lore now. It is expected behavior.

The fact that you post here does not mean that the Goons are going to mend their ways. Your posting here gives the Goons the prize to dwarf all prizes, you are their very reason for being. You give them what they crave more than aught else in this universe: carebear tears. N00b tears to Goonswarm are like the very zest of life, it is the nurturing balm that stills the callouses of their souls.

You paid the standard 500 million ISK tax for being a n00b. Nobody is going to cry for you, there will be no justice.

To any other newbies reading this:

1) Goonswarm does not recruit in the game.
2) There is a very finely tuned instrument, a sure fire way to know whether or not a Goonswarm member is trying to scam you: they're interacting with you in any way shape or form. That's your giveaway.

You were sent out asking for the key to the exercise yard, Kirbana, you were initiated in the grand old tradition. Stop complaining, pick yourself up and carry on.

Welcome to EVE.

/How do they always manage to get a half billion ISK out of these people, I don't know but damn those guys are good.

First, this is a common scam the Goons pull.

Second, I underlined and bolded the assumption you made which hurt you. There is no corp nor alliance that has a firm policy on scamming. Their policy will always break when the price is right.

I am shocked and appalled. I cannot believe that such an illustrious corporation like GoonWaffe would attempt such a foul act of cowardice on people. Manbeef Largeyams must attest to his wrongdoings, or forever sully the glorious reputation of such an amazing and shining example of good-spirited men and women that is GoonWaffe.

Hey man. That's my coat you're wearing! And before you give it back I demand you have it dry cleaned.

I'm enjoying the irony of you posting this story to blacken Goonwaffe's reputation on a forum that you yourself didn't bother checking before handing over the 500 mill.
