I’ll double your cash, trust me: Inside the scams of EVE Online

EVE Online is one of my favorite games to write about, but I'll be damned if I ever actually want to play it. This look at the scams of the game is fascinating, and it's funny to watch the writer walk into a situation where he knows that he's going to get scammed, but still enticed by the amount of money to be made if things happened to be legit...

A game where this sort of behavior is tolerated is much more interesting than an open-world experience with tightly controlled rules. The players get to make their own fun in EVE Online, and you can't trust anyone. Ever. That makes for interesting stories, but an environment that seems incredibly stressful to outsiders.
