Since any such money exchange is prohibited any issues regarding the transactions are your responsibility and between yourself and the other party and not with TROA.
30. Character Farming: Character Farming is 110% the perfect one way ticket OUT of TROA. We do not take kindly to cheaters, and/or character farmers. Character Farming is transferring items, money, cars, houses, etc. to another one of your characters. Multi Character Systems are a luxury, not a mandatory thing. If you are caught AT ALL transferring ANYTHING from ONE OF YOUR CHARACTERS, to ANOTHER ONE OF YOUR CHARACTERS, you will be considered Character Farming, and will be in violation of our TOS. Violating this term can result in a permanent ban from TROA. This means any and all forms. Giving items to another character to give to another character or vice versa is still character farming. We have systems in place to track these actions. We truly want you to be playing here, but we will not allow these type of actions. Please above all, play fair, and progress correctly!
