    Default Questions about Rex, Deeps loot boxes etc

    I'm asking this out of curiosity.

    I have six characters on Laethys and some on Hailol. There is someone there named xxxx who is selling 13 Rex on the AH on Laethys and also he/she is selling 11 of them on Hailol. It's nice to have money but I'm just curious what the purpose is for buying and selling this much Rex ?.

    Also out of curiosity, People buying Deeps loot boxes and keys. You know the ones that say "send me all you have cod". Do they actually use them or do they just do it to resell. I opened a couple of the boxes and got basically junk.

    Like I said, just curious.

    1. stolen credit card --> rex --> plat --> sell plat --> steal your account details and credit card info --> repeat

    2. a lot resell the boxes, some are just trying to get the mount, some are getting the runes to sell 40 plat for a blue box, get relic runes that were selling for 300 - 1200 plat though they seem to not sell much anymore and the rate they drop from boxes has been lowered by a lot

    some people buy the boxes to try and get the mount.

    people buying that much rex are just stupid, or have far too much money, or are criminals.

    I believe there are some measures to prevent a newly added credit card to buy rex so that shouldn't happen.

    Use stolen CC or PP account already happened for a long time since Rift goes f2p.
    And nobody in Trion care about it.
    Maybe they need this to increase their financial affairs.
    Or maybe someone in this company also use this way to make their own money.
    Adding some other authenticate it's not so hard .
    But no one in Trion want to change it.
    I guess must be something interesting behind.
    Everytime folks discuss this get nothing feedback from Trion.....

    Yesterday, my new guildmate told me he also saw the same ID sell dozens of REX in EU shard.
    I think this guy must be the same one in NA shard.
    It's so nice that offer so many cheap Rex to other player.........

    A TON of people resell rex on my server by buying it directly from other players then AHing it for more.
    They use trade or lvl 1-29 chat, as in:
    Trade: WTB 5 REX 900 plat each pst
    Then you either see it on the AH for 1100 from them the next day or two, or they presumably send it to other chars to sell, as is the same people asking for several pieces of REX on a daily basis.
    (Note: not criticizing or endorsing, just stating).

    Some merchants use this way to make plat,me too.....
    But if u doing this in each shard and use the same name.
    I think he must be a very rich man and have much time.....
