The other unfortunate thing is that the account that does the spamming is not the same the account that holds the gold, engergy or whatever and the spamming account also does not do the trading. Those combined make it difficult to stop. The farmers expect the spamming account to get banned so it is a throw away.

What the games companies have to do is run a sting operation, they probably do this but don't announce it, ie make arrangments to buy gold and then ban the trading account and investigate any accouts trading with the trading accounts.

The game companies can also limit what trial accounts can do that would limit how well the spammer can get thier message out.
