Account Stolen EvetteFollow

Hello,
Well I'm sure u have hear this before I played ffxi for about 4 1/2 yrs and now someone else is running around with my toon. I called I don't know how many times, filed with internet police and nothing. But here is something u don't know. Everyone thinks that there accounts get stolen by useing a 3rd pt software or giveing out your password, but last time I talk to playonline support they are doing a investagtion because there is a webpage that people are going to that is not real and the accounts are getting stolen from this fack page. That is all the info they would give. He also saied that this does not mean that Playonline will change there policy what a load of crap. I want my account back I have paied for some much.
If you see Evette around tell that guy to go to hell for taken my account, even if he does not speak english. lol
Later,
Evette

We can only hope that SE will change the policy. Smiley: frown

there has been a lot of this going on lately..... just off the top of my head i can think of about 2-3 players that i know that claim their account was hacked... but of the ppl i can think of, each have stated that they gave out their pw, who then gave it to someone else and eventually fell into the wrong hands.

sucks that SE cant/wont do much to help ensure the security of our accounts that most of us have invested so much time in.... that is why i've decided that if my account ever gets hacked, that will be a clear sign for me to walk away from ffxi. i've been playing too long anyway, have accomplished most of my goals, and probably shouldve quit a long time ago. so if someone hacked my account, just the thought of starting over again is too exhausting to bare.

on that note; if someone did hack my account, they wont find much anyway. like 85% of my gear is rare/xp, and i hardly ever have gil lol... so they wont be stealing much. i dont even have leet crafting skills :P



p.s.
you know whats even more stupid? someone in my linkshell who's name i'll leave anonymous, recently got hacked... its somewhat unclear how exactly someone else got ahold of his pw, but we believe he gave it to a friend, who then passed it out to another player in a plot to steal all his gear and getting a cut of the profit himself while trying to remain innocent.

well, to make the long story short... the person that stole the gear was basicly caught bragging about how they stole so much gear from so and so. there were even screenshots taken from that chat log, and GM's wouldnt do sh*t about it. and when that person found out that GM's wouldnt/couldnt do sh*t to him, he even proudly placed it on his search comment and wrote something like:

"x's persons gear hand-to-hand: O
i stole "x" persons gear

pretty shameful huh? so yeah... btw, the two individuals involved in the theft were recent server transfers... which brings me to my next point, dont recruit server hoppers, they probably left their old server for a reason. especially when they show up loaded with sh*t like k.clubs and other leet gear.

There had been something going along a few weeks ago about the ffxi.somepage website having a trojan keylogger in the background. Could be that some people were falling victim to that. Most of the time though it is a case of someone giving out their password to someone they think is a "friend."

Linkshell Community requires your Playonline ID and Password to access its features. It could be entirely possible to get it discovered somehow, so it seems a bit dangerous to me.
