WoW player offers Blizzard employees $1,000 bribe to un-ban his account

How does a WoW addict have a spare $1,000?

In a posting on Craigslist, the distraught player admits he cheated by installing a bot, but professes, "I wasn't a gold farmer or seller, never bought gold. I just botted archaeology because it's a boring profession."

Then, he gets straight to the point, saying, "I'm looking for a WoW Account Admin (WoWAccountAdmin@blizzard.com) to unban my account for $1000 USD. No questions asked - your anonymity will be preserved."

It just so happens that he actually lives near the Blizzard offices, so he actually thinks that someone with the proper authority might be able to meet up with him in a dark alley somewhere.

"This is a serious offer. I live locally and can meet you in person wherever you like with cash, PayPal you money as a gift (non-refundable and non-disputable by me), leave an envelope under a tree, or pay you in any other manner you prefer," the ad continues.

Any disgruntled Blizzard employees need a quick cash injection? No? Good luck, buddy.
