Mafia Wars Addiction

Mafia Wars can be powerfully addicting for many people, and that addiction manifests itself in many ways. If that sounds silly, maybe it is, but it is very true. You occasionally hear horror stories of Mafia Wars widows, and kids running up crazy amounts of reward point purchases on their parent's credit cards. I think we all know lots of people who take this game too seriously and let it go to their heads in unsavory ways. My name is Misty, and I, too, am a Mafia Wars addict.

But one Maine woman takes the cake in the category of sad little Mafia Wars addicts. You hear of crackheads and meth heads committing burglaries and thieving to support their habits, and this woman will remind you of them. Yesterday she pleaded guilty to embezzlement of $166,000 from the Maine Trial Lawyers Association. And where did much of those funds go? YoVille and Mafia Wars. Yep. One citation states that she spent over $4000 on the games in February of 2010 alone.


Read the story HERE. Thanks to Carrie N. for sharing this with us on the fan page.


  1. people act like idiots with god complexes over this game. Why else would she embezzle from a group of attorneys? facepalm!!

  2. Thanks for this, and the 3+ years of support to ALL the MW community you provide, regardless of level of addiction!
