If you use hacks or mods for Clash of Clans, your days are probably numbered. Supercell has declared on their website that they are stepping up their commitment to fair play. According to them, this is to “provide a level playing field for everyone”. This means that yes, players using 3rd party software like cheats and hacks will have penalties handed down to them, going as far as permanent bans.
Supercell also has a page on Safe and Fair Play, where they define what exactly constitutes prohibited third party software: programs that unfairly alter game functionality, bots and automation scripts and programs that provide unearned progress, amongst others.
Furthermore, Supercell warns users against unauthorised gem selling and game economy abuse. Regardless of whether or not you support hacks and bots, this really is extremely shady business and involves individuals or websites asking for your game login data, and then purchase in-game currency obtained via stolen credit cards or payment fraud.
Supercell then warns users about buying and selling accounts, which is also really valid and to be honest, should be common sense to people. Risks surrounding account sales include the account possibly getting compromised, being posed for permanent banning, fraud, and so on.
