Nerd Gets Arrested for ‘Stealing’ Imaginary Money

Now I enjoy playing video games like anybody else. I play a lot of Xbox live games but I have never been into MMORPGS (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). “Runescape” is one of these games where you go on quests, collect treasure, and level up. Well apparently Humza Bajwa, a 19-year-old New York college student was not getting enough gold coins in the game. He finds out that one of his classmates plays “Runescape” and has 4.7 billion coins (I don’t even want to know how long it takes to make billions of coins in that game). So Humza arranges a meeting with him to exchange actual real money for fake gold coins.

This is where the story takes a strange turn, allegedly Humza shows up with a BB gun and forces his classmate to transfer the coins over to his account. Humza was going to shoot him up full of BB’s if he did not cooperate and the classmate did. After this happened the classmate called police and told them what happened.

Humza is now facing 15 years in prison for stealing fake money with a fake gun. He is being charged with second degree robbery and grand larceny.
