Depends on how they do it. If they do it through pot trading it is legit (and we warned Daum that it would happen with the current trade system). If it is done through the AH then it is a scam.

Yeah and i guess the cash shop stuff is just credit fraud , im guessing they deliver in some tradeable item.

Im playing this game because it is not pay to win and players have to literally develop their character 100% on their own, I have honestly traded a friend pots once I could certainly live without that feature.

Not much you can do about credit fraud but as long as you cant sell the stuff on the auction house who cares .

Buy and it tell us if you got what you bought. I bet it's a scam website that will take your money and won't give you shit in return.

power leveling service and items are both things gold sellers can't offer you, money however is possible thanks to the wonderful trading system.

They can power level in other games they play your account for you, I assume they would do the same in this game .

They would probably use your account to spam gold sale stuff at the same time and get you banned but they could certainly power level people. 

As far as Item sales they can gift people cash shop items if thats what you mean , no they cant send weapons thank god.

you can trade pots and food which no one does but people seemed to want , shrug im fine playing this game with no trade its more fun to do everything myself.

Getting powerleveled as a bot is probably very risky, if the buyer would lose it's account I would love to read the whine thread that follows on the forums.
I guess they could gift cash shop items but I don't see why people wouldn't just buy their items straight out of the shop, if they offer discounts they are most certainly scamming and the people who fall for that will just be part of natural selection.

Seriously just report the bot. GEt all the info you can on his account and make him loose his account. The more they loose those 30 euro accounts the less "Gold sellers" ( scammers ) are in the game and if they dont make a profit they wont be doing this anymore

Just keep handing out those "free" seven day passes to strangers.  I was surprised by how quickly the gold spammers started advertising.  By the end of last week there was a trickle.  Now there's a deluge! Report them all!

Lets think this trough...

 

There are sites who will sell you ingame money for real money. There are also sites who advertise DAUM-Cash for cheap.
What if both sites are basicly from the same person and he uses Credit-Card information from Site 1 to buy DAUM-Cash for Site 2?

 

Aww these pussibilities!

We don't need to disable pot/food trading, just make pot selling value really low like 0 or 10 or whatever so its not selling them.

yes

you should be, if you understand what measures are in place to avoid it. This is obviously pure scam, it would be very interesting how they describe their delivery Service.

I havent seen an MMO yet that was able to avoid it and I have been around  since   before the internet existed. There will always be scammers and gold sellers in MMOs no matter what measures are taken  and you don't believe that i have a bridge to sell you

i want trading a lot. BUT it has combated spamming and chinamen veryvery very well so far, bdo simply isnt profitablefor them, most new mmos today start being filled with these people from day one, so the current system works.

 

but it would be better if the trading had zero limits, IE no trading of anything unless you are in the same guild, and have been for 1-2 weeks.

 

then allowing you to trade between mates and help eachother out more easily, as well as if someone avused this for gold selling, it would be a bit odd for someone to 'brb ima pop out of this guild for a few days but ill be back!'

The same guild for a certain amount of time thing sounds reasonable. I mean, other restrictions like that would make sense, but I doubt the developers would implement something like that.
