    Why do people get banned when sharing their accounts or buying gold?

    I'm aware that account share or buying gold is against the TOS and bannable but I have been involved in account share for too long and I have never get banned for this. I don't think that Blizzard cares about where you are playing from and bans you just like that.... I think there is something more going on with the sharing account banwaves. Can someone elaborate on this? I want to buy some services and gold but I'm kinda worried now. I don't want to lose my investment even if the chance is low to happen. Is there really a risk regarding this? why does this happen and what are the mistakes that the victims do? Also, do you get banned permanently?

    I don't even think that it's a VPN thing. Blizzard does not care where you log from I believe but I could be wrong. Can someone explain?

    Gold buying will result in an abuse of economy ban, which is a permanent ban. Especially if the buyer and seller arent careful.

    Upper comment basically answered the gold part of the thread.

    As for accounts, it's crazy hard to get banned if you're just sharing it because, if you have consistent login locations, they will be defined as your other locations where you stay.

    That rule is more relevant for those who boost accounts.
