Blizzard has been on the fast track to promoting account security lately. They all new options for when accounts are compromised, they offered pets for authenticators, they made several posted awareness sheets, etc.

But running parallel to that is the amount of gold sellers we see.

I have seen two of my guildmates hacked already this year by devastatingly experienced hackers. I was going to construct a post about the ugly truth behind gold buying. Do I know anyone who buys gold? No, but I know people who suffer the consequences. I did it once.

I want to try to make sure people are aware of what happens when a gold seller needs to fill an order...they don't create this stuff out of thin air.

So I thought I would promote it as a shared topic so you can share any (hacking or other) experiences you have to help raise awareness. People expect blizzard to say this stuff...but we are just players....real players with real experiences.

Great post Zal!

I uhh...just wanted to clarify a quote in my original post:

Quote:
Do I know anyone who buys gold? No, but I know people who suffer the consequences. I did it once.


I did it once...referring to the fact that I suffered the consequences of someone else taking my items and money to give to someone else. I was the victim not the gold buyer.

Perhaps I should proof-read. I will be hopefully getting my post up on this soon. My nephew's hacking incident was just resolved a few days ago so I can wrap up on the whole situation.
