Yeah you heard it right a $75K worth of WoW gold were robbed in real world. A Australian nurse Katrina Fincham 45 year old. who spent thousand of hours in playing the game and collecting in-game gold and items which she sold for real-world money that accumulate  around $75,000. She decides to convert all the money she got and buy it into hard gold bullion and put it in safe at her home.

But something horrible happened that her house was robbed and gold bullion was emptied. This was happen in 2008 when Katrina and her boyfriend went out to an interstate holiday with her boyfriend. While she was away, her house was robbed – three times – and the wall safe containing gold bars was among the items taken.

Fincham have the gold insured, but her insurance provider wouldn’t cough up the money. Her insurance provider, AAMI, refused to pay up, and accused Fincham of fraud, claiming that she only converted the WOW gold into gold bars so that it could be purposely stolen.

Katrina sued her insurer and as the lawsuit continued she have to sell her house to cover the cost of legal fees.

The final twist? Turns out it was an inside job, but Fincham herself was not involved. Her then-boyfriend, who she’d met online, tipped off the criminals in exchange for a paltry $500.
