    Gaara <account>

    So as some of you might know, I have been away from FFXI becuz of real life issues. I logged onto vent today and someone said I was logged in game but the guy said he was my friend from Hades Server -=- bs i dont know anyone from hades server. Since i dont have ffxi installed i had to ask someone to log in for me - the account pw was changed.

    if anyone knows who this guy is - ha ha it was funny for about 1 second but plz give me my accnt back - i can't call POL tech until 9 am pst tomorrow

    if anyone has any information on who's doing this please let me know by pm

    -Gaara

    Wow. I've actually had three people from my LS say that they had hacked accounts. All three had not given out any info to anyone, and all three had their PW changed. I think 1 person might have lost a few items, but nothing worth anything. This actually seems like something SE should be looking into.

    they won't restore anything.

    if you still have your manual with the serial number SE should be able to get the account back for you.

    that's the point, yesterday i logged onto ventrilo and was informed by my ls that my character was on -

    claimed he was my friend from Hades server and he pm'd me on forums saying:

    "hi, a an ffxi acount auction/sales site allowed me to test ur character Gaara which is for sale... seems like ur pretty popular on bahamut?... does anyone know ur quitting or already quit?...

    also, how long ago did u stop playing this char?... if u could take a min to let me know a bit about ur char, i hope to keep his reputation honorable if i decide to buy this account...

    i noticed this site on ur bazzar msg... the ls seems like a great one...

    anyway, hope to hear from u~
    ^^ thx~"

    - bullshit nobody let's u test drive accnts and i never put mine up at any site

    then a few ims:

    Balien Of Ibelin (6:08:11 AM): Hi, glad ur on... The seller of ur ffxi account allowed me to take ur account for a "test drive" & i asked if he was the owner or what... he was selling for a very low price... so, i'm assuming ur account is NOT for sale??? (btw i signed up for ur ls forum & tried to send u a PM) :-\
    Balien Of Ibelin (6:16:03 AM): Hello? Plz, if u get this email me at mailto:[email protected] --- we need to alert people out there of this scammer, and trace him... With ur cooperation, we can help u retrieve ur account and the fees it cost me to take a look at ur account. I logged on, then was booted a min or so later b/c "another computer is accessing this account thru POL." I feel guilt-laden for even getting the opportunity to sign on as u, and I want to apologize... I would feel extremely violated if people were logging on as me without my knowing... He's probably making a fortune just by letting people
    "test" ur character prior to purchase...
    Balien Of Ibelin (6:41:02 AM): plz also provide me w/ an email address to contact u, as i would like to keep u updated on my investigation on the would-be seller & send u CC's of any correspondence relating to ur account... i'll provide u more details later... thx

    and a final pm this morning:

    Sent u several messages on aol AIM... I left a msg on some forums that a friend wanted to join me on Bismarck... A few weeks later, I received an email and was given the option to purchase an account on Bismarck... Seller told me it was a lvl 62 thf on the server... Paid this seller and given passcodes... Immediately after discovering it was YOUR account on Bahamut (definitely what I expected), I sent seller several complaints... He said just "try the account out... I'll find the Bismarck information"... Well, that got me very suspiscious, and I did a little research on ur LS, realized u were still a very active member and came to the conclusion this account was stolen. I sent my accusation to seller who must have disabled the account b/c I can't even log in... Notified credit card company, bank, PayPal, Internet Frauds division... we'll catch this guy... I already have alot of information on him... I just want to get my money back and even more so, get ur account back!!!!!!! It disgusts me that people like that exist... Hope we can work together for both our sakes.... Email me at mailto:[email protected]

    From the forums i traced his IP:




    gunna call se in an hour and get my accnt back - hopefully i still have my gear and what not [/img]

    Wow, that sucks man...I am a noob when it comes to computer stuff...but correct me if I am wrong, I thought the only way someone could get your account info would be if you gave it to someone else, or if you have any third party programs that allowed some trojan or something; thus allowing you to be hacked? I mean, I am only curious because I would hate to loose my char/account anytime soon (only program I run in my background is Ventrilo to talk with ls peeps, I am too stupid for anything else )

    There was a scam where people were sending out a hacked version of fraps that would capture keystrokes to get info and send it back to the programs owner. Alot of accounts were stolen like that.

    Thats all the info I could bring up, but that is his Broadband exchange.

    I don't think any ISP will give up personal information that sparingly, especially after recent lawsuits between them and the RIAA / MPAA.

    I think your best bet would be through POL customer support... Keep at it and ask to speak to a higher up there, maybe a supervisor.

    Good luck Gaara!
