Vampire bonds are plummeting

Recommended Posts

No laughing matter for me, ma'am, whatever you may choose to believe. You think my posts are written for your amusement. There's no amused smirk on the face of my daughter, for whom I lovingly purchased these bonds from a Bloodlines-approved hub, with the aim of securing her future. She has no future now.

Never mind, you may freely laugh knowing that our land is up for sale and that I have lost everything I invested. Our club is no more. When news of this calamity spread, what were the Lindens doing? Oh, that's right - partaking in a "hunk or dunk" event. Patch Linden in a state of semi-undress, ducking softball questions from an airhead host. This won't go unforgotten.

All "bonds" past the Linden Lab crackdown on "banks" and such within Second Life are against the ToS - the fact that there are no Banking/Financial Institutions of any kind within Second Life should have been a clear hint that anyone offering such services was likely going against the Terms of Service.

This means that there are either two trolls in this thread or one troll and a very naive user.

I vote for two trolls.  At least this is an amusing thread.

Think of it this way - she was probably behind the genetic eight-ball already (unless she was adopted.)

You need to provide evidence that this hub (whatever that might mean) exists or existed.  Bloodlines approval (by which I mean that of the creators of the game) was never given to any such scheme;  explain what exactly you mean.

I can't say I expect much truth in your response, given that, if you stand by your comments in this thread, you have been proven a liar, and I must say you are becoming tedious in your efforts to be amusing.

You invested in fake money in SL in order to assure your real life daughter's future. You don't see anything wrong with that statement?

You're blaming LL for your violation of the TOS/CS. 

Bloodlines approved don't mean diddley if it isn't Linden Lab approved first. What you were doing was not/is not/never will be approved by LL since they learned years ago that it's more hassle than it is worth to have to abide by banking regulations in addition to all the other regulations/laws they already have to abide by. What you've been doing was banned by Linden Lab in 2008 so you can stop bellyaching about breaking the LL TOS/CS and suffering the consequences.

You made the decision, you pay the price.

In 2011, I purchased 200,000L of vampire bonds on behalf of my SL family, when they were advertised as having a guaranteed return of 5%.

Then in 2013, I purchased an additional 500,000L. 

ngl I low key didn't know people really spent that much RL money on lindens lmao...that's insane

Really ? I hope she won' t remember you invested about 3,000 bucks for her whole future in an ingame doubtful Ponzi-scheme, which was never sure to cash out high amounts of dividend anyway and denied her a decent future.

What were you thinking ?

My question is why I find it so difficult to simply ignore this. I mean, effective troll is effective, but this is so tempting to believe, despite being utterly incredible. Why? Is it just me?

And however it works, can we weaponize it for the election?

Just another Trump money laundering scheme - sorry you got caught up in it.  Bright side is you won't need to pay any taxes for years.

I've been here 12 years now, though I did take a couple of long breaks.   Using a round 260 L$ per US $1 (a rough average for the past 12 years), 700,000 L$ is about  $2700 US.  Over 12 years, $2700 comes to $225 per year.  Given what I have spent in my active years, I could probably have spent that buying L$ over 12 years if I hadn't taken any of my long breaks.  A lot of the L$ I've spent over the years have been for large land purchases, but I've also spent quite a bit on shopping.  There were years where I probably didn't spend that much, but there were years where I definitely spent more than that.  If I actually went back and did the math, even with my breaks, it is possible that I have already spent that much.  And none of that includes my multiple Premium membership fees and the various monthly tier fees that I've paid over the years.

perhaps i take it wrong, but did somebody really think the revenues ..( as i seen during the banks era here) of 1 to 5 % a day was very realistic?? .. and if those bonds  based on the same system would be trustworthy enough to put your real money on it ... sorry i can't do a lot more than shake my head.

and about the spending during the years?.. i don't even wánt to know it... my ex would divorce another time to be sure to be gone from me....

No good news to report. Seems the bondholders' money has been taken out of SL, most likely through a chain of alts, and the person responsible has deleted his account.

It's had a calamitous effect on SL/LL revenues, and could be a key factor in the Lab's recent decision to sell off Sansar.

These bonds people, I swear, they'll bleed you dry. Getting money back from them is like getting blood from a stone. You just can't place any stakes in what they offer you.

Can I ask what you mean by Vampire Bonds? Is this the same as the war bond from WWI and WWII? Are we paying to keep our pixel vamps fed during this hard time?

I doubt it will have an impact like  Ginko did to the grid, when there was a housing and banking crisis going on at the time.. A lot more people got hurt by that by far, in far more communities across the whole grid..

I doubt that is why they are selling Sansar..

Those hats don't work unless they're grounded, you know.  Pound a copper stake through a vampire and into the earth at least five feet, then attach a #4 copper conductor from the hat to the stake.
