I saw XJ9 elo boosting on stream.... he boosted the accounts

I Pet Cats 420 (originally Klariti) to 1800
DJ Ehpick (originally Ehpick) to 2210
DJ Lambo
Metanoid to 1700
Pony Boy

been watching this guy on stream for a while now. I'm glad some justice is finally being served. I work hard as a player and want fair game.

The thread hit roughly 14 pages, and was in massive support as I was protruding evidence from Lolking, making it clearly obvious that her boyfriend boosted her account based on KDAS of his main account, his smurf account, and the champions KDAS on her account. The evidence I posted made it extremely obvious to me and many others that this person was boosted over 700 elo in the span of roughly a month and a half

I want to know the status of this account, and the status of her boyfriend's account and his smurf account. The person is an avid forum user, and has denied FULLY, that she was boosted when it is blatantly obvious. I will continue to bump this thread with this response until I can either talk to you, or Pendragon in game or on IRC or something, or I get a response from you here whether or not asking if I can tell you the names of the 3 users.

Thanks.
Bump for red response

So what happens to people who were Elo boosted when Season 2 ends? Do they get their rewards revoked when Riot catches them?

Asking for help on Competitive forums is ban worthy? Cause I have asked but never offered to pay anyone
or have asked anyone to log on my account.

I main support mostly and really want Janna's skin, so I've asked for help. If this is punishable I'll stop today.
asking for help and duoing with someone is not punishable, having someone login to ur account and playing on it is.

I've been in games where people have openly admitted to doing so, not sure if they were lying or not, but this punishment is so deserving of those who actually paid

Shame on Elo Boosters and those who had paid for the services.
