Really? I've gotten it when reporting my own kills. It usually goes like this:

Step 1: Report Kill, ask for service, get told to kill the same guy
Step 2: Step away, step back, report kill, get told thread title, ask for service, get new job
Step 3: ???
Step 4: Profit!

HMm, did you use your social skill stats as dump stats to pump up your phsyical stats?  I do believe that being uncharismatic (low social awareness, linguistic ability, etc.) affects adv. mode gameplay at least somewhat.

That's probably it then, since I'm not using mods at the moment. ^^

What this message means is that someone else (another adv. mode character) killed the creature you were quested to kill, and you tried to report it's death.
It happens to me when I report my own kills to entities who do not care about the monster/bandit I killed. You don't have to actually KILL it, it can die by an old age if you want to know. It's just that some entities (nations) don't give a damn about some monsters who do not cause any trouble for them.

Good to know, I guess it has more than one use.  I wonder if the business where you report something that already died and get this message is a bug?

Are you sure they cared about that guy you tried to report the death of? Maybe it was the case I described?
