Iskbank.com Exposed

Iskbank.com Exposed - MMORPG.com

Thanks to a tip from MMORPG.com reader Devilishlydo, we have learned of a major incident revolving around EVE Online players, Iskbank.com and real money transactions (RMT). EVENews24.com has obtained database records of all transactions between IskBank.com and hundreds of players that includes real names, transaction details, player names and more. According to the investigation, over 345,000 real world dollars traded hands over the past year.

EveNews24 has received what appears to be the customer and order database for a major RMT (real money trading) site, Iskbank.com. Provided by an anonymous source, this information details thousands of transactions occurring between mid-April 2010 and until March 4, 2011, which was just last week. A dizzying array of information is contained in the database; everything from names and dates to products purchased and money spent to email and IP addresses.

The overall scale of the operation is breathtaking. Since we received it, we’ve been working through the data in an attempt to make sense of it. Initial estimates indicated that the total sales for the site were approximately $345,000. We then worked to filter out all orders which did not appear to have reached completion. While it’s impossible to be certain of the exact numbers, it now appears that Iskbank.com made approximately $290,000 in sales for the 10-1/2-month period. These figures do not include any sales made through their sister site, Eveisk.ru and yes, those are US Dollars.
