so i got my GF into playing tera a few days ago, and she wanted a costume from the store and since neither of us buy emp i passed her some gold, was 80k gold.

we know how costumes work in tera, some of them need the same race and what not so i had to give the gold to her.

try to log in today and i got a 3 day suspension for selling gold?

do they even investigate before giving out a suspension or do they just suspend your account if you trade above a certain amount of gold?

I mean if an investigation had been done, they would have clearly seen two people running stuff together daily, and that would logically lead them to assume this is a gift.

People usually report gold buyers, otherwise they won't know. But, if a large amount of gold was moved from one account to another it may have flagged you as a gold buyer with potential to sell. Kind of like the maximum cash "bills" allowed to enter or leave USA is 10k .

Back in 2008, I knew a guildie from another game that bought gold and to defeat the large currency detection, they sent gold to him in small amounts using many in game mail.

they don't need to know it is my GF. fact still remains that if they investigated they would have seen the number of runs we are doing together on a daily basis.

from that they could conclude that it was a gift, gold sellers are usually lvl 1s with names like gsfsfsdf and what not.
