Default Eve Online Gamer Loses $19K USD Buying Virtual Currency

Uh... why would you make multiple purchases if you didn't receive your game cash the first time?

...a gamer from Denmark learned the lesson the hard way after he bought an excessive amount of game currency for EvE Online from Ownyourgame (currency seller company). It was reported that he paid 100,000 Danish Krones (the rough equivalent of 13,500 Euros or USD 19,000) to Ownyourgame over a three month period and never received any of the ISK (EvE Online currency).

I think there was another guy a few month ago who spent thousands of dollars on EVE money only to have it confiscated by the GMs. Not quite as stupid as the guy in the OP, but stupid nonetheless.

They should have just bought GTCs and sold the PLEXs on the market for below value; if they wanted rapid isk. Hell with the money they spent they could have:
1) Bought dozens of accounts
2) A years worth of gtc per account
3) Sold gtcs on the market
4) Used the special agents to rapdily increase standings (tags for standings)
4a) Hired mission runners to share/farm standings
5) Maxed out research skills
6) Afk farm datacores.
7) ?????
8) Get podded
