Farming accounts for resale!

Has anyone experienced alliance members doing this? We booted one from our alliances today! And have found, several times, that somebody playing an account in our alliance is NOT the person who joined.
We immediately boot them!
They tend to be very talkative to start with but once they sell the account they suddenly go silent to stay under the radar!
How can we, as a community, combat this?
When i confronted the player in our alliance today? He did not even bother to deny it he just removed me as a friend!

    The problem was he was taking a free ride
    And cost us a couple of wars before we identified his lack of commitment. Something is sketch when you die immediately in war and will not spend 1 loyalty to revive and win the match!
    As for falling silent yeah!
    After starting out as a chirpy annoyance trying to make "bros" then to suddenly never utter another single word??? Yeah it is suspicious! And when i asked one of our players if he was okay? I got a message from another account saying that that account was no longer played by him, as he has sold it to someone else!
    We let the new player stay but he could not cut it! Having a big account and zero experience!
    But the damage had been done! And in that case? At least the seller actually played for several month and paid his dues! This last one was a freeloader!

    Well you may not care if it goes on! But i for one do and i am sure, that since it is a violation of kabams rules, they care about it.
    Some of them are botting their way to titles all throughout the game, battlegrounds, arenas.
    What is the point of walking through so much material with a hack? Not just because you want to win but because there is money in it!
    So you can smart off about it! But next time just think about how the guys that beat you in battlegrounds are making bank!
    Because surely you are not so nieve as to believe they cheat for the love of winning!

    If you suspect it then report it. Not everyone who stops talking or maybe skill lacks is buying accounts, but if you suspect it then boot them and report em

    You didn't mention anything about hacking in your original post. Still don't care, either way.

    if the rest of your ally is like you, i can’t imagine they’d be very talkative 👈🗿👈

    I'm illiterate in emoji. What does this mean? and more specifically what is the significance of the Easter island head?

    You really think someone will spend their time purposely for building accounts and selling them? That's interesting considering how much time and efforts that takes. And you say big account, am thinking then he probably spent money on it. I'm curious to know how much profit he made. Can you ask that for me. Thanks.

    You don’t have to spend a lot of time when you can use a hack that will complete quests and arenas while you sleep. Some large accounts go for $10k plus. Not to mention all the money they make from selling arena bot farmed units during the annual gifting event. It’s a real life criminal enterprise in a lot of 3rd world countries. It’s not just MCOC a lot of popular mobile and console games have a dark underbelly of mercs and hackers. Like I said it’s a real life criminal enterprise.

    i dunno it’s kinda hard to explain, it’s supposed to be a facial expression meme thingy but i took a spin on doing this 👈😎👈 finger gun emoji thing with my easter island dude
    Little-known fact, they have bodies that go underground.

    You are the first person ever to acknowledge the wisdom of @GroundedWisdom on his 5 years on forums lol. The wise comment chances are even rarer than pulling 5 same champs from featured in a row & you witnessed that . Congrats! @brownlikebambi

    I was just watching a YouTube video (from a fairly high view account) where they were talking about grounded being right about something in the forum. I think that it is a foregone conclusion that he gets the most mentions on YouTube of anybody in the forums (apart from the community managers), though they’re not always positive comments.
