Some of the accounts appear to be selling. One player in Silver Springs, MD, said he paid $100 for a level 12 Pokémon Go account because he wanted to catch up with friends who have more opportunities to play and collect Pokémon and items, per the report. However, a quick look through the current eBay listings show few have actual bids.
Obviously, this is far from the first instance of people selling their gaming accounts for big bucks online, but it's just another example of how people are hoping to cash in on the global Pokémania. It's worth pointing out, too, that it could also be another opportunity for scammers to target unsuspecting players. In other words, if someone's trying to sell you an account with a Mew, it's probably too good to be true.
Anyway, welcome to the Pokémon Go economy, folks.
