Do not buy or sell RuneScape gold to Arcus and Bogla websites as they are fake phishing sites and you'll end up being scammed.
Regular gold sellers and buyers might have woken up today only to find the RS gold sites they were visiting for their everyday fix are now down and unavailable.
Recently two RuneScape gold selling sites, Boglagold and Arcusgold have been shut down. Anyone who has visited them was greeted with this error:
Arcus gold, as well as Bogla gold, are currently unavailable, all you can see besides the above message is a vast white void.
For the moment, Jagex remains silent about the issue, since this was a very recent development and the case is still ongoing.
While nothing is completely clear at the moment there are speculations that the two sites were shut down permanently.
It also looks like the main Facebook pages of these sites was also shut down and are therefore inaccessible. There is a message on one of the sites that states the following:
Currently, @Jagex maintain radio silence on Twitter, as was mentioned before, the internet is filled with speculation, especially on Reddit. While some sources state that these sites were shut down permanently, it is too soon to make any definite conclusions.
One thing is clear: a large part of the RS community will be awaiting the verdict with bated breath.
Meanwhile, it is still unclear how Jagex managed to legally shut down these sites, the option of permanent shut down should not be written off. In the past, Jagex has brought Impuls Software to court, the maker of the infamous “iBot”.
That time Jagex won the case and Impulse were ruled by the court to be guilty of copyright infringement, circumvention of technological protection measures, and computer fraud. While none of these can theoretically be applied to gold-selling, there might have been articles that were applied to the sites themselves.

Reminder to Boglagold Customers
Bogla originally started in 2015 and was one of the largest RS gold websites. After their closure in 2019, the customer base started looking for new gold suppliers and spread across the market. Most of Bogla's ex-customers are now using Probemas.com as their primary gold supplier. A Bogla discount code will get you 2% off your purchase at Probemas.
