Snippet -

The studio posted a notice on Facebook saying that it flagged several SWL accounts that purchased Marks of Favour — one of the key currencies for the game — from a third-party website. As a consequence, the studio suspended those accounts and warned the rest of the community not to engage with these sites.

Hello everyone!

Over this past weekend, our systems identified a number of accounts that were involved in purchasing Marks of Favour from third-party sites. These accounts are now suspended, and we will continue taking action against similar accounts moving forward.

Please be aware that we are taking a no-tolerance approach to this matter. Currency that these third-party sellers offer comes from purchases made with stolen payment information. This is the case for nearly every instance of this we’ve come across, and this is considered fraud.

Purchasing from third-party sellers causes economic damage to real people whose information was used for this purpose--their money is being stolen, and that money is getting laundered through this process. Your information may also be at risk if you’re exposing yourself to third-party sellers, too.

Additionally, this practice negatively impacts the relationship of Aurum and Marks of Favour. These payments also cause us and other companies damage due to chargebacks and the extra fee we have to pay when a chargeback is issued.

We hope you understand our position on this matter, and we thank you for reading! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support at help.funcom.com/ .
