That's not how credit farmers make money. They use F2P toons to farm low level mats and mobs using bots and autohotkey etc. They take over compromised accounts, sell off all their equipment for credits and then sell the credits. The easiest way to spot a credit farmer is by their jerky movement and lack of communication because they are being controlled by scripts and macros.

I think they look more at spam reports than credit numbers. Im sure they would look at your activity if they suspected but i think you would be in the clear

It'd probably depend more on if you were sending large amounts of credits to random people or not.

CAUTION: DO NOT LOAD SWTOR UNLESS YOU HAVE AFTER-MARKET COOLING INSTALLED!!

They probably check into it, however without solid evidence they most likely also do very little further with it. Never had any issues so far in TOR. And although I'm not over 100m, I have made transactions against nothing in return involving figures such as e.g. 1+ million credits.

Maybe some flag starts blinking red somewhere, but I wouldn't be bothered about it.

Mailing large sum of credits will get you flagged. Having lots of credits will not. If you get banned, just call them and say that the transaction has merits and you wish to overturn the ban.

I agree.

They have pretty sophisticated analytics in this game, so they can sniff out exactly where you got your credits if they have an interest in you.

So it's not how much you have, but where it came from and where it is going.
SWTOR... the MMO some people LOVE to HATE, others HATE to LOVE, and others simply embrace it and play it for what it is.

BW won't discuss their procedures regarding farmers, or anything that breaks rules.
As long criminal don't know police can find them by fingerprints, they won't start wearing gloves.

You will likely be banned.

I dont want you to assume all this risk to yourself, so the safe and best way of dealing with this issue, is to mail me most/all of the credits, and I will assume the risk of holding them.

I think this solution is elegant and best for all involved.
