So yesterday a Reddit went up with the title “Guy in my alliance stole 184 PLEXes from a station corp hangar in high sec.”
Attached came the following picture:
Naturally all the comments ranged from “who would buy so much PLEX” to “you idiot” until we bumped into this one written by redditor MrUlterior who questioned why the picture in question had been cropped:
LOL! When I saw the screenshot in the OP, I wondered why it’d been censored, so I took a look at the original that I’d seen last night: http://i.imgur.com/Hb0TG.jpg
Notice the private convo he has open? It’s with a character “Liber Mortis”, the character claiming to have stolen the PLEX is “Umba Dilla”
Both have two corps in common in corp history at the same time – so one is likely the alt of the other:
And oh .. look, funilly enough “Liber Mortis” is trying to buy a Titan…
How … unexpected
From my dropbox:
So, it seems like someone conveniently left 184 PLEX on a corp hanger only to be “stolen” by another “account” with suspiciously similar corp history and intentionally spilled some drama to cover up what quite likely seems to be nothing but an insider operation.
Umba Dilla went on to brag about it (or prepare an alibi) in alliance chat as shown in the original screenshot which reddit’s timestamp shows it to be two days old.
Keep in mind the link of the heist to Liber Mortis is not exactly clear beyond MrUlterior’s comment – albeit the timely Titan WTB order, the similar corp history and the convo link it. It is interesting to note that the main character in question, Umba Dilla is member of Fatal Ascension alliance – a fact which apparently can be easily overlooked.
Also there was no mention of other items taken from said corp hanger, which brings another veil of suspicion to the whole thing.
I’ll let you decide whether this was an inside job or a good PLEX heist or a guy simply trying to cover up the fact that he bought a Titan’s worth in PLEX.
What do you think?
p.s.: Is it worth to spend USD $ 3,100 for a Titan?
