Warning To Motor City Online Players

For those of you into EA's Motor City Online, there's updated news regarding a player who was busted for conning fellow club members out of their cars. Apparently, the player was joining clubs, earned their confidence, and then tricked them into "loaning" him their cars. He then made off with the cars which were then sold on eBay (pathetic - considering they aren't REAL cars!). The warning goes something like this:
The bottom line: who you trade with. We will return scammed items only if there's indisputable proof of a rip-off, and only if the items are still in the scammer's inventory. (We are capable of tracking "laundering" operations, so if multiple scammers are involved, we will bust them all.) But when evidence is unclear, or when the items have been traded to an innocent third party, the unfortunate victim will probably never see these items again. Two recommended policies for all players: always get collateral for "loaned" items (even when trading with someone you know); and never trade anything you can't live without.
I'm still trying to figure out why somebody would bid on a car for an online game!?
