The Death of Bin Laden Inspires Scammers in EVE Online

The recent news that terrorist mastermind Osama Bin Laden was dead has sparked a lot of conversation within EVE Online. During my roam, and throughout my EVE 'excursions' the night the news came out, there was much talk in the local chats I visited, and an almost 'party' air around EVE.

Link to the main EVE Online forum discussion on Bin Laden's death.

In addition to general merriment, scammers and entrepreneurs alike were cashing in on the moment by creating Bin Laden characters with similar names, podding them, and selling their corpses on contract. Some corpses were on contract for as much as 50million isk.

Although I dont generally wish anyone harm, or death (except in EVE) I think there are some people this world is better without.

And that's all I have to say about that.
