    Scamming by Selling Arena Points

    On BG9 servers the arena markets is really popular, people always buy arena points, you get customers left and right. I saw someone on my server doing this, he claims he has made 15,000g in 4-5days and has never been caught

    1. Buy a high rated arena team or have friend with a high rated arena team. (2000+ arena team - preferably one that earns over 1k+ points)

    2. Find your customers, trade channel sometimes have people WTB but don't be too open about advertising because soon you will be the servers most hated. You want to be charging around 700-800g 6):

    3. Saying something along the lines of "Hey want to buy a spot in a 2000 arena rated team, 3 spots left?"

    4. Most of the time they say yes and give you the money first, just invite them to your high rated arena team and say that you will be playing games tommorow. If they want points first use social engineering skills convincing them that this is the best way.

    5. Once you get the money, just wait until they are offline and kick them. People have tried to recall their money and report you as a scammer, but Blizzard only replies with they can't do anything about it.

    6. PROFIT WHADDUP twocents

    Any suggesstions or idea to improve this scam would be appreciated

    nice !!! how much does it usually cost to buy a 2000+ arena team, because I might do it, but I don't want to do it then not make any money =/

    Price of the team depends on the server I guess.

    Only problem with this is the way word gets around, specially when it's a 70 having a /cry in trade chat.

    Name your arena team something retarded but not too retarded, lots of people don't even bother looking at the name of the team.

    really nice i have been gone from this forum for a bit so im not sure if this is a repost or not to lazy to check but really good scam i love the part where they can't report because they were buying a spot on the team not points and even then you can't be considered a scammer as pious said word gets around after id say 4 people and your rep goes off so this is a quick money scam, but it works.
