    So basically I know someone who has a very good gaming account. Let's say its a steam accounts with a lot of games. This account is worth 150-200$, and you could sell it for that amount. Not everyone knows that even if you don't have the email you can get it back as long as you know the original email. I know this is a wrong thing to do, and I'm not doing it, but I just want to see if you - BHW members would do it.
    Profit:150-200$ every 10-12 days.
    The only excuse that I found was if they can spend 150$ on a game account they are getting taught a life lesson? Anyway let's see what you think.

    Ranking a churn and burn website with spammy links is also stealing from people who rank for the same keyword. Yes it's not as bad but it's still stealing. Fake PPDs waste time- which is money.

    I like it how people think it's me, it's a close friend of mine. I'm not going to stop him nor encourage him. Everyone has their own morals.

    It will work ONCE. The person who'll get ripped off will probably post the story in forums, with print screens of the account. Once the word gets out, it will take "the close friend" you have a miracle to find a moron that won't do his due diligence and research about that steam account.

    My advice is to teach "your friend" about karma and also teach "him" that your reputation is all you've got. You can't run away from bad decisions, especially today, that's the advantage of internet history, whatever you do gets written somewhere and if you do bad things, they will eventually be brought to light by others.

    If "your friend" is comfortable being branded as a scum for a measly 200$ one time hit then go ahead, let "him" do it.

    So someone who buys things with their own money needs to be taught a lesson?

    But you think it's OK to steal their money?

    OK, I'll tell you what I think.

    I think you're an arsehole.

    (btw.. you in this context is not you, or even your friend
    ... it is whoever)
    That isn't a life lesson.
    It is theft.
    If you sell them the account and steam (or whoever) shuts it down... then caveat emptor (let the buyer beware).
    If you sell them the account then take it back... then you have stolen their money.

    I have no problem selling stuff that is 'caveat emptor.' (BUT, I inform them of pitfalls if they buy)
    But, I do have a problem selling something, then taking it back without refunding the person who bought it.

    Sadly it seems that for most people "black hat" means fucking other people over financially.
