You still have no proof that they're using stolen payment methods, only SEGA themselves can verify this. People whale, I spend $2000+ a year on freemium games, but I use my own hard earned dosh.
Read my post if you don't understand how it's so easy to do in this game. No one can absolutely prove the use of stolen credit cards when it comes to gift cards, I don't get how skeptics can't see how obvious this is. At least whales such as your self-proclaimed self usually are spending with a purpose. But it's glaringly obvious that not only is there no purpose to the billions of meseta being generated by this but that there is more than one person doing it across all 3 ships. One whale just doing meseta cap for the lulz is one thing and an outlier but plausible. More than one and the easiest explanation is staring you in the face.
Did no one else also notice the RMT spams prices suspiciously went down drastically including several new sites around the exact same time this "pirate" instance started happening? :THINKING:
The only thing SEGA could do in this instance is prove their innocence, which they could do by posting a statement. At the end of the day, the only party that takes a hit from stolen credit card info laundering is the merchant that sold the gift card when the charge back happens. A simple google search of stolen credit cards and gift cards will explain this.
Honestly, the only thing preventing this from being more common is the deterrent of a felony. But we know (sorry, can't prove guess they aren't lol) these RMT groups are not operating in a country where that is likely of happening. The solution to this and bot spam already implemented in JP's version of the game is just to ban certain (cough China) regions (limiting the amount of AC buyable would not stop the spam.)
And I'm tired of people suspecting duping. You know how much easier it would be for a bot to dupe meseta crystals and just vendor all day? Why bother duping AC tickets or worse AC items and then wasting the physical manpower to painstakingly PSO2 inventory-sim list each individual outfit and ticket item across multiple account player shops.
It's exhausting reading the mental gymnastics people have to do to even suspect this is not illegal laundering.
