To be really honest... many Shadowrunners are doing the runs because they have to, to pay for their life style.
Consider someone with low life style (2k per month).
That team mate with the stolen gear is worth 5 years of free living.

If you "role play" your charakter, you HAVE to turn that guy in, to get the bounty.  ;)

Only if your character is willing to backstab for it, otherwise it's just lousy 'but that's what my character would do!'. Would you give the Decker a neckshot to fence their deck? Kill the Streetsam to fence their cyberware? Kill the mage to sell their Foci?
How am I not part of the forum?? O_O I am both active and angry!

Of course that would be lousy, that is why I put a winking Smiley behind the comment.

But it IS a difference if you get 200.000 bounty as cash or have to fence 450k worth of kit getting 10-15% of the value (according to rule book), thus 45-70k.

Or said the other way round. If one charakter in the group takes the "stolen gear 20" it probably would be good to align that upfront not only with the game master, but also with the other players in the group.

Yep, its a chuckle worthy thought exercise.  No GM would let it happen, or if they did they were planning on making it rain anyway.

If you've got a mature enough group that's RP or narrative-focused, that sort of thing might not be bad. So long as all players are in on it.

It would be pretty lame out of the gate, but I could see it happen if after the 4th time repo man showed up and in the fight trashed the deckers gear the decker said fine I'm spiking this jerks drink and collecting the bounty myself.

I have a serious distaste for negative qualities like hunted because far too often its really the teams disadvantage.
