# 1 Biggest Exchange Ooops ever

I took a screen cap and will upload it later on.

85 Master keys for 830k ecs.

Yup, 10k each.

I wonder if we'll ever know who made that booboo.

edit: I know I've been bragging about those particle traces but this just takes the cake.

I doubt anyone is going to admit to that faux pas

Hard to say. With the average STO user they're probably somewhere nerd-raging in zone chat about it right now.

Did you buy the keys? Or did you just see the stack before they were inevitably bought seconds later?

Bought them. Amazed that I did get them actually.

I do hope I screwed over some gold farmer instead of an actual player.

One thought that comes to mind though. Seeming page after page of items listed at the same price, I wonder if there's a listing bug that farmers are taking advantage of where they can sell more than 40 of an item. I know I;ve seen keys before where 60+ were listed for the same price. I seriously doubt any player would come behind another and list for the exact same price like that.

Been wondering about that for a while now.

edit: Humour I'll trade then for an attack ship

To me that says farmer. Or at least Fence selling stuff obtained via a farmer.

I will say this though. I;ve noticed my account previously losing a few million ecs every so often. (My Phd is in theory math. i can track numbers) This pretty much makes up for that as well as all those gamma quadrant duty cadres I bought.

Oh 50 contrabands for 1k ecs just a few minutes ago. Something weird is going on....

There's greedy players that do it to, I've run across a few in the forums -- buy up stuff anytime anyone tries to undercut the lolwtf pricing, then repost it. Which wouldn't be viable if people didn't pay the insane prices.

Weird, although most of my missing money is because I don't pay enough attention to what some of the Doff assignments cost to get rolling.

Could be someone rage-quitting and ditching their stuff, could be someone got hacked, could be someone ran off with a fleet bank....

I should log in and watch for reasonably priced crafting stuff....

Awwww I'd feel guilty and write the guy, offering to sell them back for a reasonable price.
I miss my _.
