    I'm told that if you speak the word 'billing' the autobot goes away and you get a warm, breathing EA rep..... I've never tried it, myself

    keep us posted, and good luck

    if all your gold is gone, and your artys are missing, your chars out dead somewhere in Fel, your house is sold...that's a pretty good indication you got hacked...but if they really want to be pricks, they just change your password, and let you watch from one of your other accounts while they destroy all you worked for. You call for a GM but, alas, you are # 50 in que and they aren't answering any pages that day.

    If you buy an account from someone and you dont transfer it over to your name then technically its still his account. All he has to do is call billing and give him the account information and take it back over and there is nothing you can do about it.
    A lot of people don't know this.
    If you buy an account make sure you get it transfered into your name.

    I don't think anyone can reclaim an account after 30 days if the account info has been changed. Can anyone elaborate on this?

    If you do not use EA's account transfer program then the previous owner at any point in time can call and claim they have been hacked and recieve the account back.

    It happened to my friend. she bought an account and paid real cash. she played it a week or so and had an emergency in the family. came back 3 weeks later and the person she bought it from re-claimed the account because they had the original code from when they purchased the game. Nothing she could do about it.
    So, if you are going to buy accounts from people you don't know. Pay the little bit extra to transfer it into your name.

    Game time is the culprit here. If you buy an account, and bind it with your credit card number. As long as it's being paid for by you, the original owner can NOT get it back with a simple phone call.

    Chances are as likely that both the OP and your firend bought accounts that already had been hacked and sold to you by the hacker.
     


  17. thats not true at all. Im not going to get into details as i dont want to give anyone info on how to scam someone.

    Pay the $30 to get the account changed over to you if you buy one. The org owner can get the account back if you dont.

    I can say 100% that it doesnt matter if you pay for the account for 30 or 60 days they can get it back. with out doing the xfer theres no proof you own the account that you bought, traded for, was given to you.
