Recruitment Scam Warning for Newbros.

While in game today I noticed some of our members had been fighting with goons.

Fighting goons is good but after some comments in chat I thought I should make a post.

If you are approached by goonies that you do not know IN REAL LIFE they are NOT trying to recruit you they are trying to SCAM you.

Goons only recruit from active posting members of the somethingawful forums. This is one of their hard and fast rules and most members (if not all due to the consequences) are NOT willing to vouch for someone they do not know in real life.

Google "goon recruitment scam" for more information, there are also various youtube videos covering their long running scams.

If your playing to be a counter scammer/spy, there is probably no juicer target in all of Eve. If you can beat the Mittani at his own game.... bet you'd probably win Eve, the admiration and thanks of every carebear in Eve, and probably get a directors spot in BOB reloaded lol..

Lesson from this post: If you are going to join another corp, do your homework, not all are as honest and open as Eve Uni.

Re: Recruitment Scam Warning for Newbros.

Sorry, but this is wrong. Look at my history, I've been a bee and I am not on that forum. This changed and newbros aren't worth being scammed.

Re: Recruitment Scam Warning for Newbros.

I think the rule is if they're charging you to become a member, it's a scam. It's also a scam if they want you to move all of your stuff before officially being a member.

This one is a scam, executed by many people and not just Bees. ;)

If you want to join Goons and you are afraid of being scammed just join Karmafleet it is so simple.

This is still true for GoonWaffe, which is the main corp for people from the SA forums.

The confusion in eve is "Goons" can refer to members of the corp GoonWaffe, or more broadly the entire alliance Goonswarm Federation. So yea you're both right. Either way this is a potential scam, that has been around eve forever, even if Goon corps are no longer doing it, you see it pop up from time to time where someone does it claiming to be them, or even claiming to be someone else for that matter.

Re: Recruitment Scam Warning for Newbros.

Many scammers in eve impersonate being a part of the big coalitions and alliances to scam. Generally they are not an actual part of the corporation or alliance themselves as behavior such as that can get them black listed and possibly a Kill On Sight marker, should you be approached do not hesitate to take it to a member of the alliance and the person doing it will find themselves with a large target on them. Even the Uni takes stuff like that very seriously. Now having said all that send me 20 million isk and I will send you an in-depth mail of how not to be scammed in eve. :lol:

Re: Recruitment Scam Warning for Newbros.

Most Goons aren't on the Something Awful forums, and you should never have to pay anything to join a corp. With the Imperium recruiting left and right, it's ridiculously easy to get in anyway.

Re: Recruitment Scam Warning for Newbros.

Newbees should join Karmafleet anyway, KF has a better Ship Replacement Program than GoonWaffe
