    Investing in entropia - the soc shareholder program

    To players in the Entropia Universe who think about investing in a joint shareholder program with your society ................... All I can say dont do it or at least think twice. All trades in Entropia are final and once you have given away your peds it technically belongs to the other person. Theres no such thing as second thoughts.


    This is how the society leader {removed} got hold of a mothership and a shop which she barely invested into.

    People got thrown out from the society and the forum when they asked for a cashout, making it impossible according to rules, to ask for a cashout.

    Many days have passed now without a word from {removed}.

    People are still waiting and hoping for a cashout. But chances are very slim.

    I wasnt affected thankfully - im just spreading the word - so this wont happen again.

    Heres a link {removed} where I and most {removed} investors reside today. You can find more to read about this on the society forum, chatlogs and such. The legacy {removed} will be spelled in different kinda words I think.

    If you browse please make a post and say hello

    Sorry to hear about this. Hope it all gets worked out.

    I had to mod your post because of this forum rule:

    The issue can be discussed with no problems, but please refrain from mentioning specific people.

    Yes it's a loophole, in that most folks familiar w/ the situation already know who is being discussed. However, we still can't allow specific accusations on the forums. To do so would require the mods to investigate to make sure any claim is not simply character assassination, (And yes, people have made intentionally false accusations in the past.) and frankly we have no desire to investigate every single case.

    I just hope the people involved in whatever happened here do the right thing for ALL involved.
    Always willing to learn

    Hey, sorry for the off topic post, but who bought that last mothership when it was initially on auction?
    Just curious.

    Ark Royal was the last mothership to be sold on AH, purchased by Mrs Sinofmen Quayjay.

    The Ark Royal was the last one sold on auction, but the bidding was done by an "investor" outside of the society. Well, actually, by an avatar that belonged to a "friend" of the investor. The mothership was then sold to Sin for an amount over the initial auction (sorry I can't remember that exact number, 5k peds more maybe?).

    MANY people lost peds in this situation, myself included. MANY over 1k peds, and a few WAY over the 1k mark.

    But it seems that both of the offending avatars have been locked as neither myself or others have seen them log in for over a week (almost two if I remember correctly).

    It is extremely disappointing that this happened to our group, as a large majority of the players effected are awesome people. I hope this incident, on this large of a scale, will serve as a caution to others who may be looking to do a "group investment" in the game.

    Tried to warn people for months. Nobody would listen...

    Certain 'respected' avatars even went so far as to attempt to claim that my in-game screenshots of these people acting the fool and engaging in in-game character assassination of others were faked, so that they could continue believing these jokers and offering them public support.

    I call that kind of blind prejudice willful, and because of that hold those prominent members of the community who engaged these people on a daily basis and encouraged their activities just as accountable as the thieves themselves.

    I however feel nothing but sympathy for those who were taken advantage of by this scheme.

    This is not a false accusation. Is very true.
    I double dare the mods to investigate.

    its a shame went things like this happen becuase a lot of soc in the past have had some sort of group investment systems and they worked very well with a lot of trust placed in the soc leader.
