Today as soon as i opened the game interface, a massage popped on screen,It was something about visiting a site URL and with a great amount of money somebody could buy exp, gold, levels, perks, even gun marks on tanks...

I post this  in forum as a some kind of "protest" to modarators attaching a screenshot removing the site URL and nicknames as i don't want to advertise such behavior -and please fellas don't respond to such spammers it will ruin the game!

I just want to alert game moderators...

If someone from the WG wants to contact me for more information about site URL and nickname of the person who pm me such a text pls do!

Not the first time this has happened, just screenshot it and send to support as a ticket.

Yesterday i sent the the third pm/fraud attempt screenshot from a shadow player advertising the same URL site to the support team :( and today guess what?

I got a fourth pm/fraud :amazed: It seems support team does nothing but ban shadow players they keep multiplying !

I told them its the same URL site that does the fraud but the same massage keeps coming

that they looked upon the matter and case closed...

I got bored sending tickets already :sceptic:

This is nothing new. Been on ages,

and will not ever stop ...

 

It takes only a minute to open an account and get into the game.

Unless WG prevent new accounts using chat option for a while, you will continue to see the same URL again and again.

Because some people really gives money to those sites.

So the owner continue to open new accounts and spam peoples chat. Basically...

They ban 1 account, then they create 50 more..

and WG cannot do anything to the website.

 

So, If you do not want to see those frauds, just click on the option, "Receive chat messages only from contacts from my friend list"

then you will be happy as a pig on LSD..

 

Have a nice day.

They cant really punish the site.

What do you expect them to do about that site?

There are more than one such site i think.

 

They will log info on it and company heads will decide when its time to act.

Considering the site is allways the same in this spam wave, WG could allert the competent authorities. It's obviously a scam site, so it shouldn't take much time to take it down.

Authorities dont deal with sites.

Besides, that web site is probly not located in USA or RUS or EU.

And even if it is, its a hassle.

 

How do you imagine it?

Hallo, 911? Bad site makes me cry. Please shut it down.

No, something more like: "911, it's WG. The site XYZ.com scams user from my servers. Since scamming is against the law, can you bring it down or obscure it?"

Not the first time the police thake down or obscure illegale website. If they are not smart enought, authorities can even capture the scammers.

If well payed, perhaps.

But i'm somewhat certain if i call 911 and say it offends me, the conversation wont be long... :(

If the problem is that the site offends you, I m sure your call wouldn't last long. ;)

But for illegal stuff it's different. Maybe it works differents in different country and that's why IMO it's WG that should report the thing to police.

I don't like scammers, really bad person IMO...

Only accept messages from people in the friends list - OK so it stops you getting after battle hate mail, which could be good or bad, but it cuts out the spammers too :)

They were wrong. You should use alt-f4 to insta-convert all you normal shells to premiums during the battle. But it only works if you hit it between 5 to 0 seconds of the countdown. Must be the real thing, cause otherwise I dont understand how tier 10s can only spam gold.

I think the problem is not what i m going to do to pm's. I don't mind closing them but the fact is that the problem still exists! Its like swapping dust under the rag. What i m afraid about is that this site, has found a weak spot to WG engine and actually works by giving what it sells... that's the point here fellas! And that's what i yell about!

As Excavatus has already said, it's not a new thing, and how exactly would you suggest they stop it?
