For various reasons many players prefer to buy a League of Legends account instead of spending their precious time building it up until it can be used effectively to meet the players expectations. While there are a billion different websites out there claiming to be the best at selling LOL accounts safely, a slightly deeper look into their policies will reveal that they are in fact full of shit. So, in order to avoid the misery of buying a LOL account that will simply get banned for account trading or hijacked after a short while you should keep in mind the following:
Make sure the account is not tied to an email address
This is probably the most important thing to remember and sadly the most overlooked aspect of buying LOL accounts online. Even if you are buying your account from a seemingly reputable source, there will be no guarantees that the seller isn’t going to hijack the account from you later using the email address they used to verify that account.
Some merchants already state that they don’t verify accounts in their FAQ section clearly, but if you can’t find any information regarding this from their website simply ask the customer support. Remember: the account needs to be unverified so that when you get the account you can use your own email address to verify it. This way nobody can simply hijack your account unless they somehow gain access to your email which leads us to the next tip.
Never use the same password anywhere
It should be obvious, but people still make the mistake of registering in some shady online shop selling LOL accounts using their precious password that they use everywhere else. Should the webmaster have malicious intent, they can simply look into their users database and retrieve your password along with the email address you used to register and this is how accounts get hijacked most of the time. Not to mention your entire life (FB account, Play Store, etc).
Use a reputable middle man
It’s true that there are plenty of good and trustworthy vendors out there who will sell you a LOL Account without problems, but it’s strongly advised to use what’s known as an escrow service which will hold your money for a little while and once you are satisfied with the service the money gets released to the merchant. This way there’s no way the seller can simply take your money and claim that they have already delivered the product when in reality, you never received anything.
This used to be a very common practice among internet con artists especially because of the infamous PayPal’s buyer protection policy that didn’t cover virtual goods such as online accounts or virtual books, etc. And even though PayPal added intangible goods into the buyer protection policy in July 2015, it’s still problematic to actually win a case as a buyer so it’s not advised to go down that road.
