Today we have banned over 600 accounts for involvement in third-party currency transactions. Please be aware that this is expressly forbidden under our Terms and Conditions:
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. […]
We would also like to inform you 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. In addition, we strongly believe in keeping a fair playing field and stable economy in the game, and therefore, we will continue to tackle this issue.
If you suspect anyone of being involved in third-party currency transactions, please report them to our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org with any evidence that you have.
