Accountsbay.com aka thsale.com aka accountsbay sold me two accounts in december 2007. After 14 days, both were disabled due to an economy exploit banned. When I emailed blizzard, they said that a chinese company sold me accounts, and they will not reopen the accounts under any circumstance. Stay away from this company at all costs!

    Smith is a liar. This company has no clue what is going on. Search in complaintsboard thsale and over 150 topics will come up with how they defrauded customers, I of course am one of them as well and I spread the word, do not buy from these china idiots

    Accountsbay is complete fraud. My guildmates have said that the company is under investigation for money laundering in China. The company has had a few of it's shareholders go to Chinese Prison because of what they have done. I would advise to stay away from this company.

    at all and frankly, their CS is much better than other game selling sites. We love the security

    A consumer and you are reading anything on Complaints Boards you really need to take any comments made with a grain of salt.

    Complaints board has no validation of any of the comments posted on their site, complaints are made anonymously by individuals using alias such as “Yep They Are A Shady Bunch”. Complaints Board does nothing to validate if the user posting the complaint is a customer or even had any dealing with the company. Anyone can post a complaint on Complaints Board with absolutely no justification to do so.

    When reading a one-line complaint in not even proper English you may want to ask yourself
    “Is it possible this complaint is being made by a competitor or some child?”
    “Is it possible the complaint is being made is completely untrue and unjustified?

    Where are the facts? The evidence? Most of the complaints on this site are one-line comments that provide no information or documentation to back up the claim.

    As a consumer myself I would do a lot more research before making a purchase and would not take the information from the Complaints Board too seriously. Contact the company you plan to deal with and make a decision yourself, don’t base your purchase decision on a couple of one lined comments on a
    web site that allows for anonymous, unverified and invalidated complaints.

    I have collected the contact information for BuyMMOAccounts.com, contact them yourself and gather your own opinions.

    accountsbay is total fraud. Why would 3 customers post positive comments within a 12 hr time frame unless it was them themselves. Truth is

    Accountsbay is a chinese based company owned by Thsale which has THE WORST REPUTATION IN THE INDUSTRY. This company is total fraud.

    If you weren't fraud, why would you post positive comments about yourself when you clearly state these one lined comments are false?

    It shows this company is false and if you complaintsboard THSALE over 250+ reports come up. Now explain to us if a competitor wrote 250+ comments.

    This company is a fraud, and trust me as I have bought two accounts from them now and it results in an unauthorized ban on each of them. They only disconnect me from chat now, and won't reply back.

    STAY AWAY FROM ACCOUNTSBAY

    I will never sell to this site, or even THINK of buying is obsurd, and either should any of you.

    Agree 100%. Scammers completely. They never delivered my account, it's been 6 weeks now. They keep saying it was sent, then why am I saying it's not? How hard is it to send an email with information. I filed a dispute with my credit card company yesterday, so we will see how that goes.

    Dude, Accountsbay is great! I've scammed them several times and they keep on falling for it. I've sold them the same WoW account over and over again simply to call Blizzard a day or two later and recall the account. Then I wait a week and sell it to them again.

    I made something like $2000 off them over the span of a couple of months and the only downside was that they'd call my house and leave nasty voicemails every so often. Well, they also tried to have Paypal reverse the payment each time, but if you put "Intangible item" under the tracking code on the dispute Paypal rules in your favor and closes it.

    This is a tip to avoid buying from accountsbay as they are total fraud.

    Put two in two together because I didn't

    1). They are chinese
    2). They buy american accounts

    It's so easy to take back an account, but they have 0 jurisdiction to file a claim in the US regardless of their so called chinese threats. So if you want to earn $400-$5000 just sell them an account, take it back. They can't do anything because they are based in China.

    What does this mean?

    Anyone who buys an account is SCREWED! Not only that buy they are in china where one china IP detected = PERMA Ban. Gold is a different story as they get banned, but we don't. Accounts they don't get banned, but we do!

    I researched the facts as my account was banned, and I warn EVERYONE to shop somewhere else for accounts. There are three good companies I recommend including accounts.com, forsaken-farmers.com and gametag.com, both american, both well respected, both with poor tech support but they get the job done and 100% safe.

    Sites to stay away from is any site that can't speak proper english or give you a proper answer in live chat.

    I recently sold 2 World of warcraft accounts to accountsbay.com then about a month later they filed a dispute claiming i owe them a refund because of a WoW economy exploit. I refused to refund them, then started receiving death threats through there live chat, and on msn.

    (msn)

    Sery says:
    nvm ill just pay a guy there to murder you

    Sery says:
    now i just want to make you died

    My name is Will.

    Accountsbay.com did the same thing to me. Two months after I sold it, they claimed it was banned and it was my fault. When I refuse to refund them, they told me they know a guy in America who will kill me for 10k. They said that they will do it because I am a scammer when I did nothing wrong.

    Now I am concerned because my guildmates said they are part of a chinese mafia. Do I need to call the police? What company does a thing like this?

    I DID NOTHING WRONG. I didn't touch the account at all, and all of a sudden I get a PayPal dispute. Then in chat, they threaten my life? What kind of people are they? It was a manager who talked to me as well.

    No wonder why this industry is so bad, it's people like accountsbay who make it bad. Please help someone, I want this go away!

    This company bought my account for $100 dollars up front through paypal and $100 20 days later. They sent $100 immediately. I put it in my bank account after thinking that giving them all the information they needed was final. A couple days ago I received notification from Blizzard that my account e-mail was changed. This was an indication that the account was transfered. Today, I received a dispute through paypal saying they didn't receive it. SCAMMERS

    Hello everybody, I'm from accountsbay.com, my name is King. I've been working for accountsbay.com for 3 years. I'm offering 10% discount for wow account. Coupon code "King0010". I know the chat record for long. But i'm never care of it. The guy who post it here created you. Almost the chat is ture but i didn't say the last sentence. I'm from Australia, not Europe. I am not our company.
    About the ubbthreads markeedragon, i need tell you a story. The owner of the markeedragon was an account seller, we bought many accounts on Markeedragon.com and also from the site owner. On the early of our business, we are both happy, but after 1-2 months later, we found out that almost all the accounts was recalled back. We contacted him to try to get back the accounts, but no lucky, he couldn't. We thought that if he can refund half of the payment to us. No.. he refused . So we have to put disputes on paypal, then our markeedragon account was banned and got very very bad rep on it. We are sad for this. That's our company policy, we have to do that. I hope you can understand us. Thanks. There is some unhappy things happened in our business occasionally, but our company never do fraud and scam. Thanks for all the poster who support us. Please understand us who post our bad things or call us creaters. Anyway thank you for reading all my posts. Thank you vey much. My MSN: King.[protected]@accountsbay.com and Accountsbay.[protected]@hotmail.com. Please contact me for any questions or problems. Thanks.

    I like how AccountsBay actually comes here and posts that they aren't scammers. AccountsBay is owned by THSALE who has arguably the worst reputation in the industry. THSALE owns a couple dozen websites which they if you compile the list of all their websites and the amount of complaints each website has, they likely have over 10, 000+ complaints all together.

    Go type "thsale" in complaintsboard and they have over 230+ complaints
    Go type "accountsbay" in complainsboard and they have over 40+ complaints
    Go type thsale scam" in google, and you will see dozens of pages of nothing but scam reports.

    In the end, you can believe one guy named King from THSALE or you can view the thousands of complaints online from victims which hopefully you won't be one if you avoid THSALE at all costs.
