Some of you may have come across offers or auctions on websites that offer World of Tanks gold at greatly discounted rates. Be advised that all such offers are fraudulent. We strongly recommend you read this document so that you are aware of it.
First of all, we’d like you to know that everybody, even Wargaming.net employees, buy in-game gold at the same price as you at the rates indicated on our webpage. That means that all offers on other websites claiming to sell gold to you at a lower price than on our website are fraudulent and should not be taken seriously. If anybody actually sold gold at half the usual price to you, they would lose money and trust us when we say that nobody is that altruistic. There are three legitimate ways to buy gold: by purchasing it as part of a gold package sold on our World of Tanks website, as a reward for participating in a World of Tanks event, or as income generated through provinces (see Clan Wars guide). In all cases in-game gold goes straight to a player’s account and he or she cannot transfer it directly to anyone else.
As soon as a payment is withdrawn, the receiving player’s game account gets blocked. We charge the withdrawn amount from the transaction in question to the player, which makes his balance negative. He or she will then need to resolve the debt on their account before we can unlock it again.
Additionally, we would have to ask you to share all the information you have on the swindler: Where did you find the particular offer and where did you buy from? Did you get in direct contact with the seller? Do you have any information about who this person was? Also, since it’s a fraud case, we reserve the right to keep the account locked, depending on the situation. As you can see, falling for such a fraudulent offer only leads to loss of time, money and possibly your account.
All claims on fraudulent purchases must be made to the person who sold you the gold. The World of Tanks administration does not get involved and can’t be held responsible for your actions or those of others. For example, if you buy fake dollars, the real money for them will not be returned. Same rule applies for when you deal with in-game gold swindlers.
Therefore, we strongly recommend you to buy gold only on the official website of World of Tanks. You can do so here.
