False Accusation Price


Feb-6-2010 09:42

I was wondering does the price of the FA's increase with the amount of experience you have?

Does the city matter? And if it does, where's the cheapest?

When I started in New York, I noticed the price I got from the shady character was about $1700.

Now that I have two and in London, the price was at $6000, but has increased to about $8000 in a couple of days.

I would like to get ride of these two and with the price growing, it is kind of tough to catch up to it.

The price of FAs does increase dramatically as you gain experience, so don't wait too long! Last time I had to pay Shady off I was looking at more than $300,000 :)

I vaguely remember hearing a rumour that Shady was cheaper in Delhi, but I can't corroborate that.

The increasing cost of FAs is one reason I'd always recommend quitting rather than guessing - it's just not worth it.

Cordelia is correct, and yes it is cheaper in Delhi, 20% less than in the other cities.

Well, I guess 20% is not really enough for me at the moment. But I did it now so that I don't have to worry about it.

No-one likes having to deal with Shady.

I agree with turtledove, do not guess. ever.

No matter how much xp you have, Shady's price is going to match the ability you have in making them. It will ALWAYS cost you an arm and a leg.

When I get 1 FA, i start saving up. As soon as i get my 2nd FA i pay Shady immediately. You really don't wanna risk a retirement. If i don't have enough to pay shady while having 2 FA, i'd play easier cases to prevent another FA until i save enough. Of course, i heard that many agencies are willing to help out their members and lend the money to them for this person, but like myself in RL, i hate borrowing :P
