Swatted

An entrepreneur in the video game industry, MarkeeDragon, has been involved in gaming as a business since 1997, when he played Ultima: Online, before ‘RMT” (Real Money Trading) was a coined phrase.

MarkeeDragon discovered a loophole in Ultima’s game-time codes: by selling in-game currency and items for real money, which was not frowned upon back in the days of Ultima: Online. MarkeeDragon realized he could trade Ultima: Online game-time codes for gold, and then resell the gold for a profit.

MarkeeDragon found himself victim of ‘Swatting’, where a person calls the Police claiming that the streamer is holding someone hostage, or has killed someone, causing a SWAT team to storm the stream.
