    Well I got scammed after 9yrs of UO. My account was deleted, I lost about 100mill in items and about 40 mill in checks. The culprit actually named the character Diablo thx scanner. I don't think it was him at all.

    He doesn't think it was you. Sounds like whomever it was, is trying to make him think it was you.

    As if you aren't well known for that exact same scenario. Why anyone would even consider doing business with you, is beyond me.

    New players of the shard... Take heed.

    Okay i am not saying i dont have a bad rep or known for that... But I did not take the account i sold kage back nor did i log on to it, loot it or anything else, so it was either his main account that got taken or another account of his. It had nothing to do with me. I dont know his main account info nor do i have any way of i getting it. I've never bought any accounts from kage.


    Regardless listen to Kat be warned im a loser dont do business with me whatever..

    Kage - I encourage you to contact EA and ask them to investigate this. I would also contact the Net Crimes division of your local police department [most have them these days] and file a theft report. Either way, I know for a fact that EA can sometimes determine who did what and occasionally even replace certain items under certain circumstances. Regardless of any of that, its worth pursuing. Don't take BS like this lying down.

    Wow, I noticed something was off last night, and that something would lead me to Soulweavers doorstep too. I don't know for sure what happened, but this really sucks.

    Let's just say this no one had the info to lager or knew my new email. I buy a new acct, and put my info on the acct and a few days later I loose all my items my main is deleted and renamed as a person who plays siege. And the soulstones to the new acct are also missing.

    Pretty much scammer calls EA I forgot my E-mail to my acct. EA gives out my E-mail. Scanner calls back yes I lost some accounts here is my E-mail, yes I can't remember my pw. EA Rep with no damn sense here yougo sir. I hope you have a good day. And since I have a different E-mail than I did the last time I played that only leaves one person who could obtain my E-mail

    If you need an account it's yours.

    I'll also toss 200k silver and some MR2 robes I have laying around.

    E.A. keeps logs of their phone call them up and find out if anyone called about your account names that this happened to. They will tell you if anyone tried to get information or anything like this is all on record they may not tell you names of who they talked to but they will tell you their was a person calling about the account.

    I concur. I also have noticed something amiss, and only one person would bother with that something.

    Also contact EA as Kat said if the character was deleated they have his skills etc saved, anything the character had scroll wise they can revert for you. If you explain you were hacked and the characters was deleated. They can at least save your character

    Don´t quit over something like this Kage. That will only make the person who did it even more satisfied with him/herself.

    Step away from the computer for a week or so and then come back and accept an offered account if you need and as for items, I guess your guild would be wealthy enough to get you back in no time.

    I can understand you want to quit now but that´s probably cuz it just happened and the shock is talking...

    Sorry to read about this bad news. I hope something works out for you here Kage.
     
  29. Weren't you on here a month or two ago saying you quit?

    I don't know if you got scammed or not. However, before you hand over any accounts or anything else to Kage...consider that he may be on here posting that he got hacked when he didn't to scam you.

    I'm not saying he is, but think about it...

    Hmmmmm... Am I the only one noticing a similarity in these two posts?
     
  34. I don't believe this. I don't believe Kage got scammed. I believe Kage is trying to scam anyone dumb enough to feel sorry for him.

    You have been warned.

    Only people who have offered to help him are friends and guildmates. I do not think kage is trying to scam anyone.

    So, I'm not an SPer, but a few friends of mine recently got hacked. The items can't be recovered, I'm afraid, but the account can. Just requires you to demonstrate payment history. These are the steps.

    First, ask a GM to lock your account.

    Second, follow these instructions:

    My friends were able to get their accounts back. They were looted dry, but they still had their scrolled characters and castles. Good luck. :(

    As far as I see it, the way it is described someone called EA, impersonated you, and took your swag. EA being a large company probably has these call logs, and maybe even the phone number that called. I would contact the local police department.

    Good catch, can't say I remember seeing ANYBODY use the "." with the EA initials before. Then all the sudden they show up twice in the same thread?

    Let's take a break, shall we? Some good advice here...

    Kage. I am sorry, man. PM me if you want to rant.

    Many here will help as they can. Let us know what you decide when you look at your options.

    Stratics rules force my hand here, yet I am sympathatic. Just know that.
