WoW gold farmer sues over real, stolen gold

An Australian World of Warcraft fan took the unusual step of converting her in-game gold into bars of real gold bullion. This was fine – until someone allegedly stole the $74,500 worth of precious metal from her home in 2008.

Understandably upset, the gamer – Kristina Fincham – took the matter up with her insurance company, and they simply refused to pay. In fact, the insurer counter-sued, accusing Ms. Fincham of staging the theft in order to make a claim.

Sell the in game gold for money, buy real gold with the money. It is not really a tough concept to grasp.

I have to say I'm a little suspicious, too. If I had $74k worth of gold, I don't think I'd be keeping it in my house, I'd have it stored in a lockbox in a bank. If I did decide to store it in my home, I'd have it locked away in a safe too big and heavy to move.

Why in the world would she keep them in house. Anyway She should be investigateing her friends, becuase they or the people they hang around could have took them.

That is probably the line of reasoning that the insurance company is using. A reasonable person would keep the gold in a secure location.

Who the hell leaves $74,000 worth of laying around?

I swear people that go to these lengths to get this money aren't playing smart, just taking the advantage within greed. =\
