735 accounts banned for third-party currency purchases

Hi everyone,

Today we have banned over 700 accounts for involvement in third-party currency transactions. This is NOT allowed under our Terms and Conditions, in particular the following section:

4.5.1 Users are prohibited from selling, purchasing, renting, leasing, offering, accepting, disseminating or copying Virtual Benefits, including Virtual Currency, within and/or outside the Game – in whatever form – to/from third parties unless expressly permitted by these Terms and Conditions or the Game Rules. […]

Please be aware that the silver acquired from these sellers is fraudulently obtained. In most cases, the silver is purchased with Gold using stolen credit card or other payment information. As a result, once discovered, these payments are charged back – and we, as the merchant, are also hit with a chargeback fee. Purchasing from these third party sellers actively hurts SBI and the development of the game.

Apart from the above, we strongly believe in keeping a fair playing field and stable economy in the game. As such, we will continue to tackle this issue.

We are always investigating such reports and taking action on this matter. If you suspect anyone of being involved in third-party currency transactions, please report them to our support team at support@albiononline.com with any evidence that you have.
