Bizarre Online Gaming IncidentsMikey 6 comments
Daily bits have an interesting piece titled Top 6 Bizarre Online Gaming Incidents. There are some rippers, but the most astonishing to hold my attention was this:
"Earlier this year four Brazilian men, with ages between 19 and 28, developed a plan to steal the game password of a GunBound (an online multi player game) top player. The objective was to sell the game account on the Internet for $8,000.
The first step was to get the girlfriend of Igor, head of the gang, in contact with the GunBound player. They accomplished that via Google’s social networking site Orkut, which is extremely popular in Brazil. After exchanging messages for a couple of days, the girl asked the boy to meet her at a shopping center.
He went, but instead of the girl he found Igor waiting for him, armed with a gun. They took the GunBound player away, and here comes the bizarre part. After five hours of interrogation at gun point, the boy was still determined to not reveal his password, so the four men released him.
The boy went to the police, who arrested all the gang members."
