    I've noticed more and more this week that people using aged BHW accounts with no/few previous posts and all of a sudden they are posting a lot in a short space (presumably to get to the PM count). Take this user for example:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/members/jbuwa.805838/

    I assume someone is selling these accounts? I noticed a few threads on Bitcointalk where people are selling accounts.

    Yes, we've had a few accounts pop up like this and we look into them whenever they come up. Some have been genuinely away from the forum. Others have been.. resolved.

    If you see them, please report them. Investigating these can be a little time-consuming so you might not see a result immediately but we do look into each one.

    Plus don't trust such accounts if you are thinking of buying anything from them.

    I remember when I was accused of such things back in August 2015 when I started posting on my account after 4.5 years of dormancy.

    I almost got scammed from one guy, aged plus premium account. he wanted me to pay him with BTC (which got me thinking) and the second day i got the msg from the real owner of that account that his account was hacked.
