You can't do that since that's naming and shaming. So remove the names and cursing before you get an RO.

You can screenshot and post a ticket on Forum, or try the in-game report button.

My solution is to warn them they can get banned for advertising anything other than for clans. The other solution is to screenshot and submit a ticket.

By reminding people of the rules at the begining of the game one can change the nature of chat.....it works it really does, be nice and tactful about it.

OP, unfortunately, your thread violates the forum rules.  I know that the said player is in the wrong also but you and others are not allowed to name said person violating a rule on the forums.  The rule you are violating is in the spoiler and I bolded and italic it.

 

Your best option is to take the name down, and then submit a ticket, with the supporting screenshot of said player "selling" gold to the Support Page.  Make sure you check Rule Violation.  If you do not take down the name you have a high chance for WG forum moderators Read Only (RO) your account.

Hello Pilot,

 

Please submit a support ticket for these types of players. Naming and shaming on the forums is prohibited, but our support team will handle these players through the in-game report system. Please take a screenshot and send it in with the report. Thanks.

For all who don't know, this is a scam.

Many players from WOT have fallen for this and I warn you new players who haven't seen this before... it should be obvious but if you are still oblivious to it, this isn't legit.

Please report these guys everyone, and WG said a screenshot really helps as well. I've seen one but never again...

Indeed.

Gold selling websites are scams. Period.

Your information will be compromised and your account will more than likely get banned as a result from consorting with these chaps.

Best is to report to support with a screenshot if you are able here:

Thanks for letting us know!
