A forum post on the Albion Online forums stated that 1274 accounts has been banned for “involvement in third-party currency transactions.”
You may already know this, but the silver acquired from these sellers is fraudulently obtained. In most cases, the silver is purchased with Gold using stolen credit card or other payment information. As a result, once discovered, these payments are charged back – and we, as the merchant, are also hit with a chargeback fee. Purchasing from these third party sellers actively hurts SBI and the development of the game. Apart from this, we want to keep a fair playing field and stable economy in the game and will continue to tackle this issue.
