In some websites or forums, you may often see people try to sell their Fortnite account. And even they claim that in the account that they sell, there are some precious skins. But, is it safe to buy a Fortnite account? If it is not safe, then how to safely buy a Fortnite account?
Well, the fact is that selling and buying Fortnite account is prohibited. You are able to see the rule in the Terms of Service and also in the License Agreement in the Epic Games site.
