PostSubject: Teen in court for spending Pal's 'gold' in online Game   Fri May 24, 2013 5:00 am

A TEENAGER was hauled into court after raiding a palís savings ó virtual coins in an online game.

Keiron Belmont used Helen Jenkinsí login after a row and blagged all the gold coins she had amassed in SIX YEARS of dungeons and dragons-style role-playing fantasy RuneScape.

He then blew the entire stash.

The credits are used to buy items such as weapons or armour. But they have no value outside the game after maker Jagex banned real-world trading.

Runescape
Fantasy game ... Runescape

Belmont, 19, from Swansea, South Wales, was charged under the Computer Misuse Act 1990 with gaining unauthorised access to a computer and making unauthorised modifications to computer material.

The cityís magistrates heard he had been staying at his victimís home. He had used her password before he decided to hijack her RuneScape profile.

His lawyer Stuart John said: ďHe saw an opportunity to carry out a spiteful act. These credits do not have any real value. I would compare it to Monopoly money.Ē

Belmont admitted the offence. He was given an eight-month conditional discharge and told to pay £16 compensation.

I'm still finding this hard to believe!
Don't know whether to laugh at how mad it is or get annoyed at how stupid it is!

Lol, now they just need to take care of the millions of scammers in the game that steal gold coin daily XD. I used to love Runescape so much, still pop on every once in a while to see what else they added
