Real Money Trading (RMT)
Real Money Trading (RMT) is the sale of in-game items, currency, characters or other data in order to obtain real money. RMT activity is strictly prohibited and any players caught participating in RMT-related activities will be punished.
Users who solicit RMT services within PlayOnline or FINAL FANTASY XI will be immediately suspended and reviewed by the Account Admin for permanent account termination.
■ The Special Task Force
The Special Task Force is dedicated to stopping the use of both third-party programs and RMT-related activities. All data gathered by our GMs is investigated by our Special Task Force. The Special Task Force allows us to take action against third-party tool users and RMT-related activities in a manner that we normally would not be able to do using only GMs.
If you hear of any transactions of in-game data for money or any other RMT activity, please report the details to a GM. Select the "Help Desk" -> "I want to report a violation of the PlayOnline Member Agreement" and place a call.
Items and gil obtained illegally through RMT activities can affect the game's economic stability and can encourage other inappropriate behavior.
