During the day, I was contacted by a freighter pilot, who had accepted a scam courier contract. He had tried to make the best of it, and timed his jump into the destination system near server downtime.
As anticipated. the Machariel Bumper was waiting for him on the other side of the gate and began bumping him. DT arrived and he was logged off safely before the gank fleet could arrive.
It was at that time he searched for help.
I gathered the system info, Machariel bumper info, freighter pilot name, and I contacted Jennifer en Marland and requested her assistance in getting a fleet together to be staged in the Eitu system.
A rough plan was made, and put into action.
As expected, the freighter logged on, landed back on the gate and was immediately aggressed by a cheap scout, to prevent him from logging off again ,..
22:22:59 Notify Caldari Citizen 34526534: You have foolishly engaged in criminal activity within sight of sentry guns and must suffer the consequences.
22:22:59 Notify Caldari Citizen 34526534, criminals are not welcome here. Leave now or be destroyed.
... and the Machariel pilot decloaked and began bumping.
And as Newton's Third Law states -for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction- our fleet commands rang out.

Weed was trying to hold the smoke in, and could only utter a single sound ...
|Just nod. We understand.|
To date, this is perhaps the most expensive Machariel AG/HSM has brought to Justice .
The freighter warped away, docked up, and completed the scam courier contract.

|"No Choco, thank you!!"|
I promised Jen that the Mach Bounty would be doubled on Weed Probe for this operation,
and coupled with a generous donation by our very thankful freighter pilot
everyone received 300M payment for their dedication and sacrifice, heeding the call of duty
in their rescue of a fellow space traveler in desperate need.
Oh. And CONCORD also thanked everyone as well.
