Don't name and shame on the forums, edit the names out.

I mean, if he doesn't get more proof then just you saying it, you can't be banned, heck I don't think its possible for you to be banned for selling his items for credits. The IP address of where the account was logged on from is also recorded,(Well, I assume since they know when you log on an alt, or interact with an account on the same IP) so if you haven't accessed his account from your IP, then really there's nothing else to say.

 

Sorry if that's confusing.

That would be him making a baseless accusation that has no grounds whatsoever. Only [DE] can pull up the information that is required here, and even then the only person at fault is him because he didn't protect his account from unauthorized access/unauthorized actions regarding his account.

His "proof" has no grounds. What [DE] has in their systems is the only solid proof. All other data can be edited and/or mocked up.

It's one of the reasons so many game companies don't accept screenshots and things like that as definitive proof that someone is doing something wrong in their game(s). They instead (and rightfully so) go through their own systems to see if anything is wrong. If something looks fishy, they act on it.

 

At the end of the day, however, regardless of it all, THE CREATOR OF AN ACCOUNT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS ON THE ACCOUNT PERIOD.

 

EDIT: I'll also add that IP Addresses are a terrible basis for investigations nowadays due to so many people using VPNs.

Don't worry. He can't get you banned. However what he is doing is a crime and should be reported to the proper authorities, in this case you could even contact the police. Sounds odd but it is probably your best option.

I sent a ticket to DE do I wait for a reply or forget it

Depends on what exactly you sent but assuming you reported the players there will probably be some sort of follow up on their end, when the ticket is done they will send you a message saying the issue has been resolved and you can decide what to do from there.

Course. :3 No worries. As others have said in this thread and the other one you have, get in contact with the Support Staff and explain everything as simply as possible.

 

I restate again, just to drive the point home (and as a reminder to keep your various game accounts safe as this applies to pretty much any online game you play) you are responsible for everything that happens on your account and the security of your account.

(Miser_able makes a good point as well. Blackmail is considered a crime in most areas, so if you really feel up to it you could contact your local authorities. I recommend contacting DE first though.)

This is bizzare I can barely understand you. Is english your first language?

 

Regardless if you really did nothing wrong you should have nothing to worry about. Just let support know whats going on, give them your evidence and try to explain to them better than you did to us. And be patient. It may be weeks before they reply and let you know the issue is resolved.

No need to apologize. Your english is decent for a non-native speaker. Better than I can speak any of the second languages I have attempted learning.

so it is all his fault for not having his account safe ....since the terms and agreements say that
