    Respect is EVERYTHING!!! - Don't lose it! - Kunrad Solo Reez

    I hate to do this here but I am quite disappointed and angry for someone I thought I could trust.

    'Kunrad Solo Reez' started chatting me up when I was hitting some nice HoFs 3-4 weeks back. I had known him for a while and honestly thought he was an upstanding genuine guy from our conversations. He was doing a bit hard Crafting (Gambling) that day, which I do as well and he asked me for some PEDS without any collateral. I know that I have been in situations where I would really like to play and have taken loans from people (which I have ALWAYS paid back ON the date promised) ... so I felt sorry for the guy and had a little bit of extra peds to help out. So I agreed - screenshot below.

    I must qualify it is not a huge amount and I am not writing this because of the money but the whole principle of it. I have a bunch of emails back and forth from him that I don't want to post here and expose his privacy ... but after being back and forth for a few weeks, he asked me to put something on Auction so he can come and buy it to transfer the funds just in case I am not online. I have even done that and it is almost time for that to expire as well.

    The thing that really pissed me off is he had money ON THE DAY he promised to pay me back as I was watching him craft all day long while I was at work (on mobile - Entropialife) ... and yet he logged off as soon as I logged in.

    Even then I gave him the benefit of the doubt and numerous other options just so he can keep his word. Now he has even stopped replying to my email after he asked me to put the item on Auction.

    PAY YOUR DEBTS PEOPLE. DON'T BE DODGY!

    Well yes rep is important, however so is getting collateral for anything you lend. Why not ask the person for a gun or armor or something they have and then they can get that back once you get you peds...otherwise you sell it. Its unlikely they had nothing at all in storage, most likely has a ton of things, even CLD or AUD or an estate, just something.

    Also to note, anyone could do this, then disappear for a few years (logging in every so often to keep account active) and then do it again to someone else. By that time their rep may have been forgotten about, etc.

    Moral of the story, just like you should consider any deposit into this game as lost (until you manage a withdraw), you should consider anything you give to someone else gone. If you don't get collateral, its your own fault.

    You're not the only one he is borrowing ped from, or trying. Seems like he has a gambling addiction problem.

    "Neither a borrower nor a lender be,
    For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
    And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry."

    - Polonius
    Hamlet Act 1, scene 3, 75–77


    My first 3 rules when it comes to gambling:

    1. Don't lend or borrow
    2. Don't lend or borrow
    3. Don't lend or borrow

    The above three rules includes friends, btw.

    Did you see the screenshot and read the post? I did ask for collateral and I am also not concerned about the money ... just the principle of it .. so why is it my own fault ? ... geez.
