I am receiving these gold-selling messages every time I log on. The first few days I just added them to my ban-list and went on with my business, but it gets annoying when you get 10+ new accounts sending you these messages every time you open up the game. 

 

PLEASE FIX

Probably because WG is affiliated with the people spamming.

This has been a problem since I have played this.  Just ignore them.  WG finds a way to stop them, temporarily.  They then find another way to spam this.

There you have it.  I have always believed that they sanction this stuff.

Or just the logical thing of the more restrictions to stop this, the more restrictions on legitimate players at the same time. There aren't good ways in a F2P game to stop spammers like this as they can just make new accounts all the time, and if they VPN, it's super easy to not get IP bans for your spam.
