Recently, an EVE bank owner by the name of "Cally" made off with 790 billion ISK (EVE's currency) that other players had deposited in his establishment with the hope of earning some interest.
...there are no real-world laws to govern virtual treachery, and thus far, the powers that be at EVE Online haven't taken action against Cally.
Will the uproar mean that offline legal systems might start taking online crooks seriously? The jury's still out.
