Pokémon Go accounts can apparently net players a healthy profit if the accounts feature a sizable amount of monsters.
Each Pokémon has its own rarity in the new augmented reality mobile experience Pokémon Go. As the appearance of certain Pokémon has caused stampedes recently, it is no surprise a lucky few have decided to sell their Pokémon Go accounts with the incentive of these allusive creatures.
High-level accounts have been popping up for sale on eBay, Craigslist, and other public auction sites. One level 23 account found on eBay is currently asking for over $1,100 in exchange for a host of special gear and perks, not to mention 87 Pokémon. Not enough? Try other account going for a staggering $10,000 with some seriously jacked up monsters. Other accounts are more reasonably priced, but, logically, they don’t offer the same breadth of content.
Some players are selling their services instead of their accounts, like one individual that will get your account up to level 20 by hiring him to catch your Pokémon for nearly $200.
Developer Niantic has discouraged players from engaging in the acts of buying or selling accounts, which could be dangerous to both personal and digital safety.
