Don’t Buy RuneScape Gold!

As you visit RuneScape fan sites, you will sometimes notice ads for buying RuneScape gold/items for real world money. While this might sound like a good way to get ahead in the game, it is against the rules. Jagex has said that they have reliable ways to trace this now, and will ban people who cheat this way.

But, you might ask, how can they know that you bought RuneScape Gold for real dollars? Well, Jagex will not tell you how they can figure it out. They don’t want the cheaters to know how they do it, in case the cheaters could find a way around it.
Will, being a programmer myself, I can can think of way they might do this to find the cheaters. But first, some background about the problem.

In order to have Runescape gold to sell for real money, you have to get the gold somehow. To do this, companies hire what are called “gold farmers”. These people are paid to play the game, and things to make money in the game: cut trees, fish, etc. They then give the trees or fish to someone to sell to a player for gold. Then the company they work for will sell the gold for real money. For more information on how this works, look at: www.1up.com

So, the following people are involved in selling the gold for real money:

1. The gold farmers.

2. The seller who sells the logs or fish.

3. The transfer person who gives the gold to a normal player.

4. The normal player, who paid real money to get the gold.

First off, let’s assume that Jagex can keep track of a player’s trading. Otherwise, Jagex could not ban anyone for trading in this way.

1. When a person reports a player that is a gold farmer, or is using macro, Jagex could make a note of the gold farmer player name.

2. When the gold farmer trades with the seller, Jagex notes the seller player name.

3. When the seller gives the gold to the transfer person, Jagex notes the seller player name.

4. When the seller trades with the normal player, Jagex notes their name, too.

5. Then, with that information, Jagex could ban the gold farmer player, the seller player, the transfer player, and the normal player. And, if the normal player transfers the gold from account to account, to hide where the gold came from, Jagex could ban all of those players, too.

So, since I can figure out a way that Jagex can do this, I believe them when they say “We have reliable ways to trace this now.” So, don’t buy gold/items for real world money. You will lose your account.

I jus got recently banned from rs fo supposively *rl tradin* i have never bought rs gold and never would. I simply lent a friend 400k and sed come get it and ended up dyin and dropped 10m, I picked it up and was pretty much banned right away. Mi *friend* told me he had bought the rs after i was banned. Jagex thinks i bought it and says they have proof but never showed it and denied both appeals. this isnt right

I didnt know he bought the gold til after mi acc was banned.Jagex dont believe meh and kept mi acc banned. They sed they had proof but never showed meh

i love buying runescape gold said...

omg how can you guys get banned from trading gold that easily?

i've purchased up to 50M runescape gold so far. And purchased 20M on my birthday =)

And so far i am not banned.

the company i bought the gold from taught me some valuable lessons.

don't do unbalanced trades. That is trading nothing for millions of gold inexchange.

if you are buying 10M at least trade them a rune item (like a rune kite).

this is a loop hole trick that would trick the real world item trading detection system into thinking you are not breaking any rules.

i love buying runescape gold?
what site do u buy runscape cash from please tell me i dont no any good sites

There is Vgoldseller.com it dosent require any verification or anything but then the prices for the runescape gold is average so thats a good site to try and it definatly works i bought 5 mill and they transfered to my account no problem.

Yes don't buy Runescape gold its against the rule anyway. If you buy the gold it may be awsome for few days, but then if you get banned thats not cool. Also earlier in one of the post in Runescape website about real live gold trader, bots, and macroers. They said people who sells Runescape money are committing crime, so basically if you buy those gold your also breaking a law. Sometimes people will say "well i bought runescape gold and i haven't even got banned and its perfect for me." Well guess what those people who's defending buying runescape gold and saying its perfectly ok might actually be the same people who works for the company that sell runescape gold. People like 'I love buying runescape gold' might actually work for the gold selling company and say its ok to buy it because he/she is trying to convince people its ok and making her/his company last longer and make more money by selling more runescape money to sad buyers who bought them.

i hate jagex said...

hi , well i bought about 10m qorth of items since the new update system goes they had to farm the gold i did this maybe 5-6 times then about 4 days after they banned my account and wouldnt give me my runescape account back i think they detected the ip change. i hate jagex i fact i can't stand them since it is realy hard game and making gold is a realy long job and i think it should be aloud because of all those people wasting there lives making there runescape account good. anyway thats just my opinion anyway THANKS FOR READING!

Well one thing about JaGeX is they can track the gold but not multiple items bought with the gold. many pures do this they buy 12m and get the robins sets ect. or they X-fer from main. and yet nearly none of them get caught. the trick is buying something with your RSGP. And the tracking IP's and detecting them, isnt true i share some of my accounts with people all around the world.. so IP detecting isn't the cause its the suspiciousness of getting 25M in a week then not spending a dime.

shadowgirl said...

are people still buying gold now in days? because some people i just dont know how they made so much, so it makes me wonder. also do they chach everyone? or is it just some now. also just curious now that there is a trade limit if they still do it how lol. i dont think anyone should buy gold, they should make it fair and square

Now the compannies will make the money on your account. They will use it in either a series of item trades or straight forward grinding for money. This means you have to wait longer but they offer to level you up a few levels for free or a 15% extra deal. Pay for 1mil get 1.15 for waiting an extra day or so.

shadowgirl said...

but really it's not worth it, if they did the trading continues Jagex will start watching your trading and if they see any bit of it your going to get banned. So really its not a good idea. And if u had decided to do the farming way, well its not worth it, plus ‘u’ can easily go farm it yourselves and get the money with out breaking the law

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our world, and I am 99% certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further develops, the possibility of uploading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about every once in a while.

the first time i did gold farming 20m couple days later i got banned for 12 days. then 1 year after this ban i tried farming gold again, but got banned much quicker within 1 day. How did they find out so quickly? was it before of my gold farming record and they were watching?

It's not easy. But easy.

The gold seller does there thing, while you have to

Use a friends crap account, or make a mule account or your own, !!! on a differnt IP !!! AKA "go to someones house use there comp, or use an iPhone "smart phone" with 3G tethering and use it's wireless Internet.

When you buy the gold, make sure it goes to
this account that is not, in any way, accosiated with your main. This means, no same email, no same NOTHING.

Then "Because your a noob" say buying cool stuff for awile. "while still using another ip" then trade with your main "with it's original ip" then give them like a saradomin skirt or something worth some $ and shazam. 70m! Or
whatever u buy :P

items needed for this if
you don't have a router at your house for your main
and a smartphone with 3g Internet for your mule acct are as followed.

A very trustworthy real life friend. With a computer at there house.



This should work correct? It breaks almost every link.

No... I have bought RSGP maybe 15 different times totaling 90m... you have no idea whats its like. It's just sending money instantly over paypal and then they trade you the gold in a selective location. Jagex does not at all care about it, they would do something about the spammers at the grand exchange.... Oh wait that is Jagex.

i'd encourage everyone wanting to purchace runescape gold/ runescape items for real world money to do so, not only does it show incompetence and lazyness to make the cash yourself but it allows more accounts to be banned and people that work for their money to advance further into the highscores
=)
hope this helped
