there's more risk buying one i would imagine it would probably be easy enough for the original owner to reclaim their account through customer support after t he sale

A more round about way to get your identity/credit card stolen.
These words are mine. Do not use them for evil.

It's against their TOS, so at the very least you'll lose it and at the very worst you'll get it disabled permanently.

Basically you'd be seen as someone who stole/hijacked the account. You want that? Also it could be stolen/hijacked from someone else and then passed on to you.

I wouldn't touch that offer...

This is how a lot of WoW account selling/buying was handled. I have a friend who bought and lost an account basically every 3 months or so, it happened every single time.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there
