He was so successful, the cops noticed. From the article: "He started selling items such as weapons and currency for online games through an Internet auction site in April this year, without obtaining the appropriate residency status. Wang, living in Kumamoto, has admitted that he sold the virtual goods for about 6 million yen ($US 1.3 Million), in violation of the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Law. A bank worker became suspicious when Wang regularly sent money back home to China and alerted police in August, prompting Kumamoto police officers to investigate the student."

yeap
people just want to be the best
not to actually achieve it

like buying an old world series ring

"look what i got!"

"a piece of jewelry that has no real meaning to you since you didn't do anything to actually work towards receiving it other than throw some money at it?"

"uhhh.............yeah."

it's illegal because the person was in another country on a student visa and was allowed to only earn so much money while on that visa.
also, he failed to pay TAXES on it.

Therfore
BAM
go home
