One of the interesting features of EVE Online is that you are literally allowed to do anything, and I mean anything, inside the game as long as you do not circumvent any game mechanic in doing it. It's a sandbox game that allows (and encourages?) players to cheat and swindle other players. When I was playing I had thought about putting my money in E-Bank, but thought better of it when I realized that no amount of interest was worth the risk of putting my hard earned gains in another players hands.
E-Bank has been rocked recently by scandle, and today we find out that they are insolvent. People. Stop. Trusting. Others. With. Your. ISK!
