Players just have a tendency of thinking it duping when someone sells a lot of a rare item. When they are just stolen merchandise harvested from a lot of compromised accounts.
Because the people selling them were using brand new level 1 accounts that had no achievement points or 10 achievement points earning the Going Down achievement.

That means nothing. They create new accounts which they mail their stolen goods to to sell. They don't actually do their selling from compromised accounts.

Lvl6 cubs on AH are almost certainly cubs that were bought by legit players with the intention of flipping for a profit. Maybe those legit players had reason to suspect the cubs, or maybe they didn't.
Worgenbait wrote:Because ALL of the cubs being sold are level 6, they pretty much have to be duplicated. Not much of any other answer is really understandable. Question is, why are so many different people doing the same thing? If it was one person who hacked the codes or programming, why are so many competing and driving the price down so much? THAT is what doesn't make sense. It's not likely that that many people are buying so many copies off one person to try and turn them around. So does that mean it's a single incompetent organization driving their own prices down, or is the code for duplicating on some hacker website and a lot of them are exploiting it? That in my mind is the question.
