I was soloing Ifrit the other day and watched a group lead by Iven (a whm with 5 taru blm on /follow) go into the BC fight then come out and disappear, not warp or tele, and end up in Kahzam. I didnt hear or see any kind of warp animation so I proceeded to call a GM.

While waiting for the GM, Iven and crew went from Kahzam directly to Cape Teriggan. GM finally got a around to answering my call and I gave him all this information that even if Iven's HP was in Kahzam there is no possible to get from Kahzam to Cape T. in such short amount of time.

If anyone else runs into this guy please report him asap. Everytime I do a /sea all Iven he's either in a cloister area or a zone right next to it. Let's get this scum off our server.

Wow, that group has been around for a long time. They don't really interfere with people much, so that's probably why they've never been reported much but I have seen them jump zones. The only time I see them do something other than avatar fights lately was farming marids en masse a few months ago when marid hair was jacked up. I tried to help them by casting diaga to lower the marid's defense but the poor taru clones don't melee very well.

Off avatar fights alone these guys make 360k in a day (considering they have all 6 quests). In a week's time they make can make a grand total of 2,520,000 IF they only have 1 group. Brought it up to my LS about a month ago after doing the math. Nice little chunk of change if you can play 6 people at once.

I've seen a group of 4 BLM, 1 WHM, and 1 PLD doing this.

There's definitely more than one group doing this, I cannot remember the WHM's name but In north sandy up by the signet guy and outpost warp NPC I see this hume female WHM and 5 taru BLM all in identical gear/titles check the signet NPC then just suddenly disappear. Most GM's use the excuse of saying 'report this issue to the STF(u) via email because I was more on the angle of accusing them of RMT rather than the pos hacking point. So definitely bring up the POS hacking as the major point when reporting these groups. D:

Here is the link to the email form for the STF(special task force) who deal directly with RMT and RMT based activities for FFXI.
https://secure.playonline.com/supportus/index.html
That is for US support though; if you are in europe or asia click the appropriate link from POL main site, goto 'Service and Support' button on the left-hand side of the POL frontpage, then click 'email support' and on the email support page, at the bottom you will see 'form for Special Task Force' thingy-mabob. ;O

Okay so I don't exactly mean to hijack but another thread seems semi-pointless for this:
Moonmule on seraph. Remember the story about accounts being hacked, then friends watching their hacked friend's account walk to some random RMT mule and trade away all the valuble gear? and other such account being stolen stuffs? Then someone mentioned each server either had a 'Sunbank' or a 'Moonbank' as the characters the RMT used to sell all this stolen gear on the AH. The link above to moonmule is to FFXIAH.com. Anyone know this mule? It has only sales in its history and alot of very good gear no one would sell(cept maybe like a friend quit and gave the account away).

Sounds like another stolen account, smells like another stolen account T_T. If it wasn't a stolen account, someone just made a sh*tload of gil. Kclub, HQ staves, Gigant mantle, scorp harness, flame ring(s)...a bunch of stuff..all sold. D:
