  • Click the Show More Options arrow if you're looking for something specific.
  • Filter by who issued the Contract, or who did not issue it, the title and, most importantly, the item!
  • Enter in the item you're looking for; if you don't know the full name you can pick it from a list that is generated from what you have typed. Image 19
  • Once you have selected the item you're looking for, the results will be returned for the range in which you're looking.

Skills

There are two skills related to contracts: Contracting and Corporation Contracting. These affect how many contracts you can issue by yourself, or on behalf of your corporation, respectively.

Contract Scams

Contract Scams are contracts which are setup with the sole purpose of misleading the intended item purchaser or person undertaking the contract. There are two kind of contract scams.

  • Item Contract scams are mainly scams in which the item offered in the contract does not match the item promised in the description. A popular item contract scam includes those which provide normal (Meta Level 1) item (e.g. Raven) while offering Faction or higher Meta Level items (e.g. Navy Raven).
  • Courier Contract scams typically involve putting up courier contracts which are difficult or impossible to fulfill (e.g. End station requires docking right, etc). The item in the contract is typically worthless while the collateral asked is high. This will prevent the contract from being successfully completed and causing the contract undertaker to lose his/her collateral
