    Hey guys, I can make around 1-2 thousand dollars a month from selling in game gold and items, and I wanted to know, if paypal or bank ask me where I get my money from, if I'm saying that I'm selling in game goods, wouldn't it be weird for them? That I make a living from it..

    Thanks, ill be happy to listen to your opinions.

    They might freeze your account at some point. That's the only problem.

    But it also depends on the game, if what you're doing isn't against the TOS then you should be fine.

    Otherwise you might get unlucky, someone will report you and PP will fuck you over.

    In game goods I think are copyright protected. So you have no right to sell these items for your own profit. I used to sell Habbo furniture lol. Long story short paypal fucked me over.

    yea, but usually there is no a real law, these companies just ban your in-game account if they catch you selling in game goods for real money.

    what is the exact reason paypal fucked you? because i see many people that sell golds and nothing happen, so its only luck?

    Dude just keep doing what you're doing and stop asking stupid questions. When you do something that is against the terms of service of a particular company there will always be a likelihood of issues to follow. Most of the time nothing will happen but that's not to say that something can't happen.

    Paypal and the bank don't care unless they get a complaint.

    So be sure not to screw over your clients, keep out of the game's radar (don't get caught) and for the love of god pay your taxes!

    Taxes is what will end up biting you in the ass in the long run.
