    Exclamation Is running a "bank world" ILLEGAL?

    Is running a "bank world" ILLEGAL?

    Where players "invest" wls/dls, to get an X percentage back of the "Investment" per day?

    this^^^^^^

    he just took the wls and ran with them. He first gained peoples' trust by spending his own share of wls after people invested in him, then he started to get more investments and bam, ran with the wls. The wls were returned and the dude was banned

    Anything that gives a player the chance to take one's item(s) away (also known as scamming) is illegal.

    I've seen the SB about the world BANK, no one trusted the owner for investments, and you never should. Remember JakeShore?

    An owner of a bank world asks random ppl/strangers for world locks so that the owner can use those wls to invest in projects/items/etc so that he could profit.
    In return, the owner gives a commission every day/week/month to the ppl that borrowed him the wls.

    For example, an owner can give 10% of what the lender borrowed him every week. The commission is 10%/week. So if the lender borrowed him 10 wls, the next week, the lender will in theory have 11 wls.

    The problem with banks is that the bank owner can scam you at any time. It is not safe to borrow wls to strangers.

    I went to the world: (This game's name)+banking

    And saw that the owner did many sbs, people put like 25 dls there, then the owner just did more sbs and banned everyone, now the world is stranded.

    Banks are not safe at all. They are illegal in the game! Don't risk for it!

    If invest in me threads are illegal on the forums, they definitely should be illegal in game.
