    Does this include transferring gold to an alt account of the opposing faction via the neutral AH?

    Yup, if they were on the same IP address when logged in. Abuse of economy again. So it’s likely they did something like that. Remember this was all when you weren’t allowed opposite factions on the same server. Also there used to be people park lvl1’s at bootybay with scanning bots buying items people were trying to smuggle across factions for 1 silver and such forth.

    Ya, but blizzard would read that as the same as transferring amount your own toons... both accounts would be registered to you. This would only be a problem if the account was registered in someone else’s name.. which is ironically enough how most people who sold accounts in vannila got caught and their accounts banned.
    because one thing that always boggled me... you could pay someone in Korea to level a toon on your actual account and only get a 24hour ban and a warning email, but your friend could give you his account when he quit (which happened all the time, one case I remember looking at was a Main tank of a aq40 guild that was passed between about 5 or six people within the same guild so they were always guaranteed to be online) and they perma lock them. We used to just flag accounts, the system auto sends a generic email, then accounts dept which were in the states at the time used to pick up the slack.

    The OP did write:
    I have seen 2 forum threads saying they were perma banned for sending their alt or a friend gold
    Blizz do not just ban you for sending gold, unless you have done something that is against the TOS

    At least one of those threads had some highly suspicious stuff involved, so the moral of this story is: you ain't gettin' the whole story. Lots of us have traded a LOT of gold around our multiboxing accounts with no ill effects. The only warning people need is to not trade gold for anything that could be related (even 3rd-hand) to RMT. Trust nobody. Follow the rules regarding account creation and personal information. Pay attention to your accounts in case a GM does a bot check on you. Don't be a dick in-game. There isn't much more to worry about.

    As the book says, Don't Panic.
