Can I get ban for buying gold?

General Discussion
I see general chat filled with tempting offers with good deals on gold. can blizzard ban me for buying? as long as i dont sell its fine right?
You would probably not get caught, but you would be buying stolen property from fellow gamers, which would make you a douche.
You are also giving your CC info to less than reputable places.

This. PS it's really easy to read the terms of use yourself...
It takes a special kind of stupidity to give your billing/personal information to a company you know is engaging in theft from other people.

I mean, this is like walking up to the guy who is burgling your neighbor's house and saying, "I want to buy his TV from you... do you take credit cards?"
may i suggest buying an Authenticator too, but only about 4 days after you bought your gold.
you can get defrauded.

That's far worse than being banned from a game that isn't even satisfying your gold lust.
You can. That's how a lot of people get hacked. They buy WoW or Diablo gold or pay for the powerlevel service then get hacked.
Is it really so hard to spend a few hours to farm up some gold?
just wait for RMAH then buy gold from there
Even though if you buy gold and they steal your card info, its a huge inconvience to you if you do so.

Would I be safe if the gold site uses Paypal as their payment service?

You're moving your topic way away from the hypothetical here.

You might want to leave well enough alone.
