It isn't just mail that they're getting at, they are sending /tells as well.
Please, do something about this. Add some privacy settings for chat, such as only accept /tell from people on your friends/fleet list. The last thing I want when I'm trying to enjoy a game is to get messaged/mailed by some gold spammer trying to sell a product that I know breaks down a game's economy and wrecks it so that you either have to have a top-notch farming group or have to buy their product.
On top of cracking down on the way these spammers operate, STO needs to nip the actual buying/selling process in the rear now and say that anyone caught buying and/or selling in-game currency for real-life currency will have their account (and possibly IP) banned immediately.
With those 2 measures, we may at least help slow the progression of STO energy credit sales.
