My guild and I decided to write to you after reading all the good stuff you write about gold sellers. We’re long-time readers and this is probably our way of giving back.
We play Horde on the Mannoroth US realm and like everyone else, we get spammed to hell and back by this Susan Express gold seller. Every single day, we get the same old spam from these guys. After all that, we just thought that these guys must be dying of hunger or something because of how persistent they were.
Just for fun, we tried to order from them. My buddy ‘borrowed’ his mom’s paypal account so we can try an order, and by ‘borrowed’, I mean used without permission. We really didn’t think we could order because of the online verification stuff that we’re used to in online shopping, but our order got accepted immediately. No calls, no verification at all. My buddy’s mom found out and boy was she pissed. I don’t know about you, but I think that the lack of any security on susan express is dangerous. We’re warning everyone who even thinks of trying these guys out. Bet you don’t know swagvault owns susan express.
Their email also shows the stupid process of delivering the gold. Check out the attachments too.
Well, Jack, you beat me to the punch. I was supposed to review and skewer Susan Express forty ways till Sunday, but hey, don’t get me wrong, I am grateful….and impressed!
So before I show you the dirt Jack sent me, let’s take a look at the official site of notorious in-game spammer Susan Express dot com:

SSEX. Acronym trying to capitalize on people’s baser instincts. Unsuccessfully at that. What’s with the sleazy goblin in the Santa suit? It reeks of dirty 70s porn. And his sack must contain kidnapped girlie gnomes. Frucking pervert.
"There is no best but better" – WHAT. THE. @#$%?????!!!!
So Swagvault owns Susan Express ? Hmm, interesting. Swagvault, whose Bizrate ratings are abysmal, must indeed be desperate so as to resort to rabid spamming in the game AND accept orders without verifying if the use of the PayPal account was authorized. So sad! /violin
I don’t feel sorry for spammers and scammers. Why the hell should I? /spit
4. Why does my order require phone verification?
We like to take all possible steps to protect our clients’ details as well as the integrity of SusanExpress. By speaking with our client’s on the phone, we not only make the transaction fast, easy and safe, but it also gives us a chance to strengthen our connection to our clients and answer any questions you might have.
Turns out this is complete BS, as Jack stated in his email. You’ll find out more pretty soon.
To be continued.
