So a friend called me to ask about some torrent account deals going on PG. He was like "OMG, they're selling it for so cheap". I have a history with PG and know exactly the crap that goes around there. So i went ahead to check things out. Turns out it's another ripoff by a couple of their high-ranked members...

I've been using seedboxes for a long while and i know what can, and what can not not be achieved with them.
All these accounts have 400-500 TB of upload credit... but somehow the download credit is only 3.7, 28.8 and 77.6 GB respectively. Now let me go ahead and straight up tell you that this is practically impossible to achieve...
These huge unbalanced ratios are achieved using torrent cheating softwares, a very simple process you can Google yourselves.
If these ratios were actually achieved using legit means, than you can be sure these guys would be asking much more than what they're asking for these acounts. (3k, 3.5k and 7k respectively)
These cheated accounts are only good for as long as you're not detected. As soon as any site moderator/administrator was to find it, you lose your account. And even if you're lucky and somehow don't get caught, is it really worth paying for something which was absolutely free for the seller?
So my point? Just because you're at a famous/trusted website doesn't mean you're getting legit stuff. So don't fall for suspicious offers like this.
