I purchased a runescape account from them about 2 weeks ago for $169.00 I got the account 2 days later because they got my email information wrong. Eventually I was able to login and I was happy. Problem came in is when I realized the email was still registered, this is a bad sign because the player could than recover his account.
I tried contacting them through email but they didn't reply, and their chat is rarely ever online. 4 days later their chat is infact up they say they will contact the user "REQUESTING" he confirms the email change. REQUESTING ASKING ARE THE WORDS THEY USED NO BUENO. Day five day six day 7 8 and 9 I checked to see if the chat was online everyday in the afternoon and really early in the morning like 2 am and they're not online.
Since I could not get the registration changed to me of course I didn't play with the account.
Day 15 I try to sign into the account and what happened? The unpredictable the user did infact steal the account back and what do you know the emails no longer work the phone numbers are fake and the chat room is still offline.
Would give 2 stars just because the prices are so good, but who cares when you will just end up losing the account?why does the price matter when you're not buying anything?
DO NOT PURCHASE FROM HERE FIND SOMEONE ELSE WHO AT LEAST HAS A WORKING CHATLINE.
i attempted to buy something using paypal for £66, after calling their 'number' and emailing them several times i started to think it was a fraud. luckily they haven't claimed my transfer and i should get my money back. today i called them again and some poor man picked up the phone saying that his number had been put on their website and that he had nothing to do with them. Basically the website should be shut down and the owners should be prosecuted.
In Janary 2012, my daughter used my credit card through my PayPal account to purchase a Runescape acount from Farmer100.com. No account was delivered.
I then Googled Farmer100.com and found out that they are a scam site.
What they do is accept payments through PayPal and deliver nothing. When the customers put in a PayPal dispute, Farmer100.com then emails the customer and says they'll deliver the account as soon as the dispute is withdrawn.
So then the customers withdraw the dispute and they still receive nothing. And with PayPal, once a dispute is closed it cannot be reopened, no matter what.
And Farmer100.com seem to know this all too well and use PayPal disputes to scam people.
When I read all these customer complaints I got straight onto PayPal and put in a dispute so that the payment wouldn't go through.
Sure enough I received 8 emails over the next few days from Farmer100.com asking me to cancel the dispute so that they could deliver the product.
Each time I emailed back and said no.
Below is a copy of the content of the first email:
Dear Rachel [surname removed],
Thank you for your order of an Runescape account F-L121-A85-S85-D99-11995 on www.farmer100.com We are so sorry that we did not deliver the account to you in time due to our auto delivery system was updating. Before we deliver the original account to you, you have to cancel your payment dispute. Because dispute payment means nothing to us, we have to get your payment before we deliver the account to you. If you just want to cancel your order and need a full refund, please cancel your dispute first, and then there is a refund button option for us to refund your payment immediately, otherwise, paypal will take few weeks to investigate your transaction and then decide if they will chargeback the payment for you. For your goodness, we hope you can cancel the dispute on your paypal account first.
The emails came from two different email addresses. One address was [protected]@farmer100.com and the other was [protected]@live.cn.
Below is a copy of another email I received from them:

(the emails are addressed in my daughter's name)
I telephoned PayPal after a few days and said the company was hounding me and asked how long I had to wait. They said that they had emailed Farmer100.com to tell them there was a dispute but they hadn't responded. If they didn't respond within 10 days I could have my money refunded. The refund came through.
Yet still emails kept arriving from Farmer100.com asking me to stop the dispute so that they could deliver the product.
The problem is that Farmer100.com is owned by someone called Wang who lives in China. So they cannot be found (although their address and phone number is available through a WHOIS lookup).
What is obvious to me is that Wang is nothing but a con man and he uses the PayPal dispute system to con people. He knows that most of his customers will be kids who don't realize what a scam site Farmer100.com is until it's too late.
PayPal is a trusted website and the owner of Farmer100.com uses this trust that PayPal have built up to scam people out of money. Without PayPal helping him, he wouldn't get away with it.
But just to help you find out how bad Farmer100.com is, you can read hundreds of complaints about them at the following URLs (and these are just a small sample of what's out there):
There is also an emerging class action lawsuit against this website which you can read at http://www.sueeasy.com/class_action_detail.php?case_id=445.
I think that if this guy has his PayPal account closed, he won't be able to scam people the way he is doing at the moment - and he's been doing it for a long time.
People trust Paypal and feel safe making payments through the website. But Wang, Farmer100.com is abusing this trust and tricking people.
He has nothing to sell and is using the trust people have in PayPal to steal money. He needs to be stopped. He is simply using PayPal to commit fraud.
Tried to purchase an account. They said it would take less than 10 minutes to send to me, but it took over 8 hours and still nothing. I filed a complaint with PayPal, and later that day, they sent me an email saying I needed to cancel my dispute in order for me to receive my account. I cancelled my dispute, and I am still yet to receive my account. Terrible website.
My 11 year old son used his birthday money to buy a virtual online player from this website. The player was never delivered and I have numerous emails from the owner promising our money back. No player and no money. Now the owner has just stopped answering my emails. We are out $99.00. The website is farmer 100.
