ACCOUNTS.COM IS COMPLETE FRAUD! THE PERSON RUNNING IT WORKS AT HOME AND RIPS PEOPLE OFF! I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY PEOPLE IN GAME THAT THIS COMPANY IS UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR INTERNET FRAUD AND THE FBI IS INVESTIGATING THEM! I feel victim of this scam! I bought 3 accounts, all banned in the same day. They refused to refund or compensate me but called me fraud and hung up live chat! If you want your account banned, don't buy from accounts.com!

****Notice of Account Closure****

Greetings,

Account Name: XXXXXX
Offense: Unauthorized Account Access Policy
Details: Unauthorized Access to Another World of Warcraft Account.

The actions detailed above have been deemed inappropriate for World of Warcraft by the Support staff of Blizzard Entertainment. Please review the World of Warcraft Unauthorized Account Access Policy at http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?articleId=20460. Access to another World of Warcraft account which is not registered in your name constitutes unauthorized access to another World of Warcraft account, whether or not you had permission from the registered user. As such, this World of Warcraft account has now been closed by the Account Administration staff based on review of the above account infraction incurred. This action has been taken in accordance with the Terms of Use (http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/legal/termsofuse.html) and our game policies (http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?articleId=20309). The recurring subscription on the account has been disabled to prevent further charges.

Last, according to the World of Warcraft Terms of Use, to which all players agree when installing World of Warcraft, Section 5, Paragraph C [Rules Related to Game Play] states that you may not do anything that Blizzard Entertainment considers contrary to the "essence" of World of Warcraft. This entails access to another World of Warcraft account, including, but not limited to, the deletion of items/characters and redistribution of in-game currency or possessions. The bottom line is that we want World of Warcraft to be a fun and safe environment for all players.

    Accounts.com - Scammers and fraudelent
    accounts.com
    United States
    accounts.com

    THIS IS A SCAM SITE! BEWARE! THEY ARE FRAUDSTERS AND TRIED TO STEAL 2 OF MY ACCOUNTS AND THE GUY THAT RUNS IT IS A TOTAL IDIOT!
    I sold one of my accounts to this guy, I get an e-mail 2 days later from him saying it was banned and he was said he was going to press charges against me for it...I just told him off. I sold him a second account that I bought back (and all my gear was gone and so was my gold), he claims he never got my money, and says he's going to file a suit against me...well GL with that! Completely fraudulent business, do not sell your account to them because they are nothing but trouble, and do not buy an account from them either. Another post here says they are under investigation by the FBI for fraud (I am not sure of this claim) but I wouldn't be suprised if they were...but definately beware of the guy that runs it. I've been getting threatening e-mails for the past 2 weeks.

    This guy is a complete ### and is posting slander about our company because he didnt like the fact that we called him on an account he sold us that he knew was going to get banned because of third party program use. Just read his post and you can see how ignorant he sounds. Were not under investigation by the FBI we didn't threaten him or anything like that, plain and simple he got caught and so this is the only way he can GET BACK AT US for holding him responsible for the accounts he sold us.

    I don't even have to say anything about this post, look at the faked account closure notice if anyone has ever seen a real one they will see that the first 3 lines are not how blizzard words there account closure emails. Secondly, humm kinda funny how he doesnt mention why he was called a scammer! could it be because he is upset that his little scams and story's didn't get over on us? If your ganna scam an accounts site stick with playing in the sand box with the Chinese or over seas company s, your ganna get caught if you bring it to this American Company... BTW come on if you know anything you already understand that the FBI has nothing to do with internet fraud, enough said.. just another simple scammer who got caught and is whining to the world...

    Ive dealt with many sites, and i ahve to disagree. This site has been nothing but the best this type e-commerce has seen. FORCING other sites actual 'scammer' sites to either disappear or straighten up. I applaud them for stopping people like the one griping. And yes FBI dont bother with petty WoW accounts. Be assured of that ;)

    I purchased a 1000+ USD account from these guys and they keep telling me to come back later; since they needed to contact the original owner. Every time I come back to them they keep asking me to come back in 24 hours time. Finally, due to the nature of the amount of money I'm paying I filed a dispute over through Paypal. I came to their live-chat and nobody could help me out. I finally get to speak to their so-called Security Team with a person who goes by the name Jack. Not only could he not answer my questions and his English is so terrible it made me had second thoughts on their location. Not being racist here, but he sounded like a China guy. The funny things is that Toonstorm claims to be located in the US, Texas Dallas and we get a guy who can't express himself properly in English. I am certain that Toonstorm.com is based in China and as all you know that most companies that are in this field of business are 85% scams. I can't get what I purchased and who have lost my money too if I didn't file a dispute through Paypal.

    You guys have been warned here, so don't fall for this trap like I did! I'm begging you guys!

    if you know anything about Accounts.com you would know that you do not have to give any of your sensitive information until after you have already accepted the bid amount. Secondly Toonstorm is based out of Hong Kong, Accounts.net is also based in Hong Kong... There are many chinese/asian sweat shops set up to buy and sell accounts, thsale.com and all the other ones, but when you go to live chat you cant understand them, they answer your questions without reading them LOL try asking something simple and they dont get it they give you some generic response from a canned response in live person.

    So to be honest, if your looking for a good deal, if your really looking for true all american customer service (( and no ENGRISH )) then www.Accounts.com is where you should be looking.. But do your research, dont take some guy contacting you on msn's word that he wont scam you because 99% of all those sweat shops are scams, they dont care about the people there buying or selling from. hence the reason it is so hard to trust wow account sites.

    The comment below is total bs, the only reason Accounts.com would have filed a charge back is if you were a ignorant punk kid taking back your account after selling it to them. Im going to say that Accounts.com is the best place I have ever dealt with when it came to buying an account, they tell it like it is and they are there for the customers when something happeneds. Trying getting that from those so called chinese sweat shops

    While Im not sure of the legitimacy of the original poster, I bought 2 EQ1 accounts from them in may and they required a 45 day wait before they would release the SQA needed to change the password... I figured why not, i wanted to get back into the game for memories sake. a few months later I contacted the chat and they gave the correct SQA for the first account, but the second was incorrect and they are offering a full refund... but that is not good enough for making someone wait that long to not be able to provide some sort of comensation in my opinion.

    We will see how it pans out, but selling accounts they do not have the proper info for is basically fraud.

    Agree with complaint. I purchased an account and had a similar experience. No communication, not delivery on their "guarantee". Unlike most, however, I do have every e-mail, every live chat, etc. and work with an office full of attorneys. I WILL find them and I WILL sue them.

    I've dealt with Jason and "Dave". I had an almost identical experience as Adam Leach above. Buy the account, wait 45 days. On the 45th day (which, consequently, is the limit for filing a PayPal complaint) the account was banned. "Dave" tells me to impersonate another person to try and recover the account, then says he will recover it, but never does. Then "Dave" wont answer e-mail since he knows I can't file a PayPal complaint. Guess what - I'm not going away "Dave." I really have nothing better to do than keep tabs on you.

    yeah I had to put up w/ Dave from accounts.com. what an out-and-out ###. Jesus Christ I wish Colon cancer on that ###. He was a ### to me. Didn't help at all, even laughed at my problem. I hope he goes to hell and gets tortured indefinitely. ^-^ Thank you.

    I also would like to add something here, i bought a lvl 80 account and the first contact and few days of play is all great and your thinking wow this is fantastic, then when the owner of the account recovers it, and in a game like wow they always can, all your hard earned money and time is wasted because "dave" might offer you an xchange in which case the cycle just continues or stuff u around and ignore u all together, and for those who pay via pay pal and think they are safe ur not, i lodged a complaint and it was promplty closed as these guys know how to rip ppl off, because most times they actually deliver the good u bought, but if u read the terms and conditions on account.com they do NOT in any way guarantee the safety of the account after initial purchase, so if you can afford to spend 100's of dollars for a week of gameplay all power to u, if not then stay away from these guys because they are not the good guys in accounts ecommerce like we all thought, they are just as money hungry as the rest. and "dave" if you would like to comment and deny these claims go ahead i would be happy to post all your very helpfull... emails here for proof

    Yes, i totally agree with the complaint. The accounts that they put "on sale" are the accounts that they sold months ago. Apparently, if the customer forgot to go back to live chat to claim their 45day info, they put the account back on sale. They have a lot of complaints about that and believe me, they never do anything to assist the customers.

    OMG what Tracy said is EXACTLY what just happend to me. They have been saying for three months that they dont know why i cant log into my account and that they are "looking into it".

    I sincerly think it is not a company but one person (prob a kid) pretending to be lots of people.

    He even writes on here pretending to be his own "satisfied customer" LOL

    Well if im going to be scammed i guess it is better to be scammed by a pathetic looser than an actual person who counts in the world.

    If you dont have brains or balls to win at life all you have left is scamming.
