AccountsBay.com / Terrible scam!

1 MA, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

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.

    CHECK COMPLAINTS BOARD AND SEARCH THSALE. OVER 200+ SEARCHES COME UP. THEY ARE THE HIGHEST RATE FRAUD RMT SITE ON THE INTERNET!

    I went to their live chat to see what they would say as well here if it is true or not.

    They told me they are American, then they said they aren't but Australian, when I asked a question, they then said they are European. This site is a joke.

    I have bought a couple of accounts from these guys and a few of my friends have as well. No problems

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

    measures these guys use. I wouldn't risk my money at another site.

    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

    Accountsbay points to this site above. This site is 100% chinese you can tell from their awful fake american support that they claim they have.

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

    This is why we need to just bomb china, their are like a billion chinese, and they only cause scams.

    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.
