Blog: You Hate Gold Farmers? Here Come the Gold Frauders

Posted Tue, Feb 19, 2008 by Aelryn

Frauding is like farming with a mean streak, and it's a whole lot worse.

PlayNoEvil has another great post up today which examines the way that gold farming has undergone a nasty transition in the last few years that's costing everyone a lot of money.

So, the first thing a gold farmer might do is reduce its costs would, logically, not pay for its game accounts. After all, you're being banned for providing a valuable service to thousands of game players. You're angry. You can't get out of paying your staff... but why PAY for game accounts if they are going to ban you all the time.... why not get a stolen credit card to buy your accounts?

Read the rest and join the discussion at the forum thread.
