Looking for a quick and dirty way to level up in “Pokémon GO?”
Buy someone else’s account.
Even though the game is just over a week old, high level “Pokémon GO” players are selling access to their accounts on sites like eBay and Craigslist for up to hundreds of dollars.
A level 18 account with a Charizard is currently listed on Craiglist for $350, for example. “Trying to sell this account,” the seller writes. “Lost interest in the game. Many 1k+ CP pokemon Email for details.”
Hieu Huynh, a 21-year-old college sophomore, told The Wall Street Journal that he paid $100 for a level 12 account.
Selling, or “flipping,” advanced accounts is nothing new in the gaming world, so it was only a matter of time before people started doing it for “Pokémon GO.”
