League of Legends developer Riot Games is removing third-party skins from their game in an effort to  protective players from scammers, community coordinator Ben Forbes announced on the game’s forums.

“These sites promise limited edition skins for League of Legends, when in reality they acquire codes illegitimately and exploit players,” Ben wrote. “They charge excessive prices (we found one skin for over $1,000!) and sometimes take payment and never provide the content. You can’t predict the outcome, and no purchase is ever guaranteed regardless of what the seller says. To make matters worse these services typically use bots. Bots are lame to play with and chew up additional server bandwidth, negative impacting everyone.”

Riot is currently working with payment processors to prevent fraudulent payments from processing. As of today, the company is no longer any skin codes, regardless of whether someone possesses proof of ownership or not.
