If I ignore a thread does that mean I care?
I could care less. It's sad, I know. But I care just enough to look to see if we can ignore threads on here (we can), but I do not wish to care that much. I wish I could care less.

Also, that part wherein the OPie was talking about (OPie's) taxes paying for their (the 'fraudster') benefits . . . kind of made my eyes bleed. I'm crying a river here, tankdude, about your misspent taxes. Your priorities are A+ and on the ball and every other cliché under the sun.

Maybe you should start one. Then at least you'd be sure.
It would quickly devolve into the "Lady Gaga wrapped herself in bacon to begin her 4800km walk across the Sahara Desert" thread.

Skipped six pages, did I miss anything?
Not really but amusing if you care like reading the previous page or so. Drama from the OP who then requested the thread be closed because 'the authorities' were involved.

Well, I can understand the OP's concern. If this disabled person is earning the big SL bux then they're defrauding the taxpayer of about 5p each every year, and that adds up when you need to pay school fees for Tarquin and to cover that third holiday in Tuscany. The government are right to treat the poor like scum, as all of them are SL escorts living the high life on their £600 a month. I bet they snort a lot of coke. ON MY TAXES!!!!!!!

Fraud & misrepresentation is rife in SL. Always has been. There's a person I have known in there for years who has been manipulating rather colorful fabricated circumstances both in Rl and inworld using several avatars. Playing the victim is a career for some people and though mostly pathetic and sad, but at times it can impact others or businesses negatively.

They typically prey on the more naive and once they bleed them dry of what little emotions or pennies they have, move on. In the case of the person I mentioned, over time they manipulated thousands of US dollars out of people in SL. But you can only keep up the charade for so long and as they were exposed and funds dried up in SL, they have gone on to other places on the internet where we have seen them make at times, hundreds of dollars off of fictional incidences.

And thats all you can do, really - wait for them to move on. People who live in those kid of sad existences will always make exposing mistakes.

Are they criminals? Yes but unless you have their RL information and can serve them with a cease & desist, getting LL involved is unlikely. If you are that passionate about the situation, create a blog with all the factual information that you can point people to as needed.

I assume this person just RPed various escorts hence the different backgrounds and they might not be disabled at all, just their character is. That or - they actually are a disabled, muslim refugee who makes extra money in SL.

And ... here comes the tricky bit - big shops can become a self-employed entity and pay taxes but escorts would probably be way under such limit. As to disability limits per say - they vary from country to country and usually you have levels from least serious one to severe one.

OP seems to really want to take someone down.

If someone finds enough willing "victims" to gather any substantial amount of money from being an escort in Second Life, he/she/it has my deep respect from a role-playing point of view.

He/She/It must be really awesome in it's "profession".

blablah pretend victim bullshit
Or you could focus your energies into something creative or helping out others in life, so as to ensure you won't be forgotten after your funeral...
Or you could waste your life on this nonsense, like a unimaginitive, uncreative, pretend-victim.
