May be stupid question but does anyone know if you buy an account can the seller go back later on put a ticket in and steal the account back?

Highly unlikely, they'd have to know the last time 'you' logged on and know the recent gold purchases as well. If you're scared of that happening, buy a little gold when you recieve the account.

as someone who has sold several accts through this forum i would like to point out 2 things

!. If there is going to be a thread about scamming buyers in fairness there should be one to tell trusted sellers as         the charge of goods vs gift on paypal takes away from asking price of seller. Also it will help transactions go faster to know the "feeling" out stage is not needed for a buyer

2. If you are going to send payment as a good instead of gift then atleast be courteous enough to pay the surcharge in doing so. It amts to a tax charge basically and when you go shopping the stores do not pay the tax for you.

Thanks and enjoy the game

Kegs I have done that before we both protected ourselves so I only had to pay half on good faith and payed the rest when I got the account. I paid the first half as a good and second half as a gift so it helped us both. Another way to know the account is real is simple. Have them add you as a allie. If they can't do that tell them to get bent.

This is all a very good conversation but you still need to be careful PayPal only have a 45day money back policy i have seen members get an account have it for 45days and boom next day turn the device on and it's gone . Never knew where it was gone or what happened till a message was sent to gree looking for it back got it back and the guy constantly takes it back now that sold it so try make sure the account is legit by possibly speaking to other mw members that know them if possible as the ppl I know have now no account and no cash but I do believe most traders are honest !

you can stop this by changing un/pw after recieving it. On android just go to manage apps> modern war> clear data. Then open game and create new id and password. On ios backup game just incase, uninstall, and reinstall. Create new password.  Hope this helps.

Also someone already mentioned but buying a bit of gold as soon as you get it helps too.  Then you will have receipt with everything you need to claim acct.

Thanks Kegs this was all done and still managed to take the account as the original owner is the official owner in grees eyes for ever so just be careful but I do believe many ppl are honest traders just retiring from the game so don't take 1 bad experience as what always happens

I play it safe when I bought my first account the guy transferred the game and then sent I sent him money,,we even exchange phone numbers and talked on phone,when I sold account I got money first then transferred,if I woulda saw the game wouldn't transfer,I'd give money right back via email,but never had no problems,but never did business with a scammer,I've been fortunate to have dealt with good honest mw players
