I don't remember the exact word on the card, but it says something like
"trash after an someone attempts an attack on the wanted runner". Read
the card again, but I'm sure that the card goes even if the wanted runner
is not dead. On the other hand, to have the rep points, the wanted
runner must be killed and you can still have the rep even if the
attacking runner is also dead.

Using GAQS or WGC withdraw the "attempt" to make an attack on the wanted
runner. That's why the card stays on the runner.

If I understand correctly how you play the card, it's like a walking rep
bank. Play that card on Swaaaaaark! and wait until the end of the game
to grab the last 10 rep points that you need to win the game. Okay, it's
not easy to kill Swaaaaaark! with one runner, but you need only 5 rep
points, puting that card on Ajax sure can do the job. In fact, yesterday
I tried this cheap shot at the end of the game, but my opponent had a
LOTI and was successful.

Hope it clears the smoke ...
