Still, the story would be nice if you feel so inclined. Looks like they claim to do it all...sell gold, buy/sell accounts. Did not see any gear buying/selling though.

Gah typing...

I've bought gold from them before with no issues... everything is right there.

There FAQ opening states that using them for powerleveling will not get the account banned.

3 days after using their 1-70 service my account is banned. A temporary ban, but if I let them continue on the account it will be perma banned.

The reason was WOW noticed the IP logging in was not "from the region where the account was created." Also at that point that watched the character and they were using bots, when they said they don't.

I've been trying to get my money refunded from Paypal, or at least part of it since they can't finish their service. Everytime I use their "live chat" on their site they seem to have forgot the who I am, what my problem is, or say they can't help.

I escalated the dispute to Paypal to have them investigate. Their company logged a comment saying that, "The gold has been sent by us and there is nothing else we can do, unless the gold is refunded." This dispute is definitely not about gold. I captured screenshots, text scripts, and so far i've found a US based number in Cali and I keep calling that asking for my refund.

I'm sort of jealous, I'm forced to do things via AH and the old fashioned way. Too poor. I know several friends that buy large amounts of gold and would be furious if they did not get theirs.

Regardless of the ethics, you paid for a service from them and are now having issues. Sucks for them since there are 100 other sites/people who probably do the same thing. Although, I'm not sure about the leveling part.

I learned my lesson from Gliding. Was gliding a druid on one account, had my main account with a Warrior (and Rogue, both lvl 45+) and then my wife was leveling a priest. Wake up one morning and check my Druid...banned. Fuck. Knew it could happen so I was alright with it. Go to log into my main, banned...was pissed. Thankfully the wife's account did not get banned.

What's funny is a fought for awhile for my main. I did the gliding on a completely seperate PC and never logged my main on their...they swear my main account was automated.

During that ban spell a lot of people got banned. A friend logged onto his buddy's account (he had glider on the PC) and got his buddy's account banned. That person had a shit ton of time and effort into it, lots of raiding..etc. Not sure if they are still friends.

Gliding made the game a lot more fun, since it was free money generation and gear collection. I'd still like to glide, but I'm not going to risk accounts getting banned again.

My friend got banned from a similar site who logged him in from somewhere in Russia. He was pretty upset, because he dropped about $200 on the service. I'll ask him what the site is and post it on here asap.

My brother had an issue like this with a company selling ISK for the EVEOnline game, paypal ended up fucking him as they said they cannot force the company that screwed him to give the money back, because the transaction was for a virtual item, not an actual item.
