How do these people get so many different accounts? Don't you have to pay for each account in STO either by purchasing the game or paying another subscription fee?

I got the exact same 3 message in my in box, but they are 3 different users than the ones reported above. They are:

Oh, and where do I get to their profile so I can ignore them? I click on the name in the sto email and it just shows the email.

We want you to know that we take these actions seriously, and are working on ways to combat this movement. However, while we're working on these things, there are some things that you can do to help stop this now.

If you come across someone offering to sell you in-game currency for real life money, please report them in-game. You can do this by right clicking on their name in game and select the option to report them.

If someone sends you a PM you can do the same thing. In-game click the question mark (?), request GM Help then select behavior and add the players information for a GM to investigate and take action. Please include as much information as you can regarding the message you received.

Additionally, you can ignore these people both in-game and on the forums. In-game, simply right click on the players name and choose ignore. On the forums, go to the profile of the person who you wish to ignore and select the option to add that player to your ignore list. Your ignore list is the same both in-game, and on the forums, so if you do this in one location, you will not need to do so in the other.

We want you to know that we do take the buying and selling of in-game currency for real money very seriously. If we have proof that you have bought in-game currency, or are caught trying to sell in-game currency, we will ban your Star Trek Online Account. No one would like to see this happen, so please, don't buy in-game currency for real money, and if you see someone trying to sell in-game currency, please report them.

Thanks,

Stormshade
That's good to know.

I thought they might be smuggling plums.

I'd like to see this as well, there have been several threads started due to the actual spam mail we've gotten to our accounts (outside of the forums and game).

It is great to see its not allowed period, this includes those buying guys, so don't come crying if you've got a lifetime sub and were caught buying credits from some low Ferengi trying to make his way to the Nagus.
