    Coc account sale

    I was watching coc videos on YouTube when a coc account sales ad popped up bragging they have sold more than 20k accounts.

    1) I thought account sales were against supercell T&C

    2) If so, how can they be so brazen as to putting in on YouTube ads on a clash with Eric vid?

    3) Can't supercell put a stop to this? This doesn't sit right with me and I don't like seeing ads that breach T & C...

    Well, SC is not in charge of Youtube Ads. You have to report to Youtube itself to try to stop this. Supercell can only handle its games, and not outside sources.

    1.They are.

    2. They're usually scams and not actually selling accounts so much as selling you back accounts they've stolen from former clients and other sources.

    3. They do.

    Don't worry about what others are doing and discussion of this subject is against the forum rules and will get this thread shut down.

    Do I put in the complaint to YouTube or do supercell have to do it?

    Or do I just put in a complaint to supercell with the site?

    it isn't against youtubes TOS it is against SC TOS so there is nothing for you to report to youtube.. that is for SC to do as they own the copywrite to the game and came claim infringement not you.. best thing you can do is stop posting about it here and send a email to support outlining what you seen where you seen it and let it be done..

    That's like saying why isn't the government putting a stop to the IRS scams. It's like trying to kill cockroaches. You squash one and a million more will pop up in their place.

    Just to give some additional insight into how YouTube's advertising works, ad spots are bid on almost like an auction. So you have major advertisers like Ford or McDonald's or whatever other big name franchise who are able to purchase major spots because they have more money to outbid smaller companies for prime spots.

    However, because of the global crisis going on, many large advertising firms have pulled back their marketing budgets, are spending less on advertising, and thus are being more strategic in how they put their ads out.

    This in turn allows smaller companies to start bidding competitively because the big name companies are no longer outbidding them.

    That's what's happening with the CoC account buying site. We have shut down the ad account, the website, and other parts of it systematically and repeatedly but they keep coming back.

    There's only so much we can do in concert with YouTube, but if there weren't a demand for it these websites wouldn't be generating the revenue to buy ad space.
