PLEX Aid for Haiti

Dear EVE Players,


Along with the rest of the world, we at CCP have been following the devastating impact  of the earthquake of January 12 on the people of Haiti.  The situation is as dire as ever for Haiti's brave population, even with the rush of goodwill and aid from many countries, international organizations and countless individuals-including many of you.  In 2004 we assisted a collection amongst EVE players to help with the Southeast Asia Tsunami relief efforts and we have figured out a way to use our PLEX system to facilitate such a collection again.


Beginning January 29th, 2010 and ending February 15th, 2010, CCP will accept PLEX donations from players and convert them to a cash donation for the Red Cross efforts in Haiti. 100% of the proceeds will be given to this important charity as a representative gift from EVE's player community.


· To participate, contract your PLEX to the "CCP PLEX for Haiti" character, and please make sure the character is in the "C C P" corporation and that the name is spelled correctly to avoid scams.


· Contracts will be accepted within 24 hours of submission, though usually sooner than that.


CCP regards any scamming attempts surrounding this effort to be morally reprehensible and they will be met with swiftest action.


This is about one community of people helping another in need.


I urge you to  use your hard earned ISK (or any of the other various ways which you can acquire a PLEX) to do something greater than it could ever do in New Eden.


Sincerely,


Hilmar Veigar Pétursson

    As if that's actually going to stop anyone trying to scam.

    Reap what you sow, CCP. You made a world with no rules, now stew in it you motherf*ckers. I honestly hope some scammers get away with nabbing a few PLEX's. .,|,,

    While I see your point, I do not agree with you. Scamming to take money from Haiti relief efforts should result in a hanging.

    * Blackfiredaemon agrees with ghost
    scamming money from Haiti is one of the most selfish ideas I've heard in a while.

    I'm guessing you didn't quite get the "They will be met with the swiftest of action" part.

    And since this works so well with the isk sellers, it's sure to have an effect on PLEX scammers....
