    Is it Legal to Buy and Sell Accounts?

    I currently live in Indonesia, and join the community as well.

    But apart from discussing games and updates, there are also those who offer accounts at low prices, which leads to scams

    So is it illegal or legal?

    Its illegal as per terms of service to trade or share accounts. Account may get banned.

    Technically, it is not "illegal". That would imply some law, where you could be fined or imprisoned. But as everyone will tell you, it is against the terms of service. Where Supercell detect this, they will ban the account and/or the person, pretty much for ever.

    As you stated, this leads to scams, and is just a headache for a game & company, trying to make their customers/players happy. The cheaters and scams found a way to monetize, and they have no morals or scrupals, and worse, can lead to naive people losing valuable personal data (associated with their device).

    "Illegal" doesn't always pertain to the law as the definition includes "forbidden". You can have an illegal maneuver in sports. No one's going to jail for it but it's still considered illegal.

    And yes, the buying, selling, and sharing of accounts is a violation of the Terms of Service.
