Video Game Scams – Are You Making Money From Games You Play?
A video game is anything that people are doing for fun. If that’s the case, it’s different from real-life work. Many real-life activities are games, too, and there’s plenty of real-world money to be made in these instances. Unfortunately, many people make a mistake when they play video games–mistaking it for “work” or “play.” As a result, the games wind up buried in the back of the closet, never to be retrieved.
Let’s take a look at an example of a Chris Crawford scam case. A couple of years ago, Chris Crawford was arrested on suspicion of embezzling more than a thousand dollars from two gaming websites. The website he embezzled the funds from had employed him as a writer. In addition to the huge amount of money he stole, he also left the companies’ owners with bills for thousands of dollars in payments.
Chris was initially fired from his job at Rockne Park Media but later returned to it as its creative director. While working there, he co-founded the company Board Game Addiction, which is known today as Realtime Creations. This company is one of the largest sellers of computer games–its products include millions of titles. However, this isn’t where you’ll find most of the titles released by Realtime. Instead, you’ll mostly find “Texas Holdem” or “Texas Holdem Texas” downloads–simply downloads of the computer games themselves, rather than the full board games themselves.
