    Cannot remember his name but i did beat him on the tie break .

    900 coins but tainted by him .

     

    I think what he was doing was trying shock tactics to put his opponent's off their game .

    Give me the details and I'll report the cheat. I don't seem to have your problem with WGT action.

    Have a look at his activity (wall posts) and you'll get there :-)

    What happens, do they get back to you or is the name no longer searchable?

    I wouldn't say we are encouraged to report those we suspect of cheating by the way wgt handle it when we do.

    My son and I sometimes play this silly game on the phone, he noted something suspicious and asked me to report it and I did.

    I got this reply:

    Hey Mayor, thanks for contacting us.

    I realize that the player you are reporting is suspected to be using cheats and selling large number of rare items continuously. 

    Such players are ruining the fun in game for honest players. We are sure to investigate his city ####.
    I would like to thank you for reporting this to us and apologize for the inconvenience caused.

    This is something that annoys us as well. Such players shouldn't be in the game and shall be banned. Don't worry, I will do my best to address the concern.

    We have passed on the details you have submitted to the development team for investigation. The team will first check to see what's going on and then take any action where necessary once the cheat or inappropriate content has been confirmed.

    It is extremely important to us that our players feel protected while playing, we want everyone to play fairly, and co-exist happily and peacefully within our game.

    Appreciate your support and understanding. Thanks 

    And then:

    Hello Mayor, thanks for writing back to us.

    Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. 

    We appreciate to share your words about the cheats in game and how they are selling large number of items in low cost.

    What I am going to do is, I will take this as a feedback and make detailed case notes about this as it will be forwarded to the relevant channel so that it can reach the concerned team. We are constantly working on the improvement of our services and your feedback will definitely be a great help. 

    Our team will surely look into this and will do the needful.

    Appreciate your support. 

    Many Thanks

    I do realise EA are a massive company and have teams to deal with all sorts but they will also have more customers so more to deal with too.
    The point was there were replies and even encouragement in them that what you are doing is a good and helpful thing.  Here my impression is that cheat reports are a hassle.  To "the account started 3 days ago and he shot 58 on Pinehurst", "We need proof of cheating before we can take any action" would be the likely response.  And of course they're right a good score can never be absolute proof of cheating but the idea is they take it from there, as with the EA response.  We don't have access to the information that WGT has but they certainly could be more encouraging to us to point them in the right direction. 
    Yes there would be vendettas and sore losers with silly reports but wgt should be able to spot them.
    My only criticism of EA was this mouthful  it will be forwarded to the relevant channel so that it can reach the concerned team. ;-/

    I can't stop the bottom bit being squashed, a deserved punishment for being so long winded I suppose :-)

    I agree dodgyputter , there are obvious cheats and not so obvious cheats they could at least start with the obvious . Any way I can’t do any more , and I shan’t lose sleep over it , but it would be nice to at least get a reply. They have had, and replied to another email with screen shots , sent just a few minutes apart , but have chosen either not to look into the cheat complaint or just can’t be bothered to reply.

    Nothing there. He can answer for himself if he wants help....or not.

    I know you're not making a big deal of it but sincere apologies from me, I was certainly guilty of lazy assumptions, I'll be more careful in future.

    I totally agree with you regarding this. You are spot on, they turn up, do not respond to you, hit worldy shots every time and sink ridiculous putts.

    But there must be other ways of cheating too, I played a young guy fro Australia (I think if I remember correctly) he blasted the ball anywhere off the tee - then played 3 or 4 iron out of the deep rough and put it to 6 inches from the flag. I'm afraid I was quite rude to him!
