    First off my apologies for this post here. However It would seem certain people my in fact be throwing stones in a glass house. What I have done, perhaps not nice and perhaps not looked upon kindly. But I know some will get a kick out of it. Here is a message I sent to Freelsy on ICQ

    "Strange thing I go to login to my account drakost/knight and there seems to be strange things occuring... my email has been changed and my personal info is gone. Even stranger is that I go to send [email protected] an email (which is the new email on my account.) He doesn't exist.... well you can guess what happened from there. Now if you can explain to me why your email that you use for all the other accounts you have was on my account ill give you your stuff back before I delete the account/character."

    Now as I said, perhaps not the right way to go, but it certainly got his attention. afterall I could just contact EA in regards to this since I still have all the original information including the CD case with the original registration code. And Freelsy can have peace of mind that if I get an answer to my question he can have his stuff back.

    So no he wasn't hacked... he was apperantly foolish enough to place an email on an account that wasn't his.. even more so for not actually having that account/email.

    Mods feel free to delete my account. This is the only post I'll be making here.

    I bolded that section because I dont understand what your talking about here. Are you implying that i've tried to "hack" an account? I hope you contact EA about this issue, for it was not I that messed with the account...Hopefully EA will have kept good records for this case. If anyone has any info as to who this guy is, or whats going on with our accounts, please come forward....im completely dumbfounded here...9 years playing uo, nearly 4 on and off at siege, and this mess is starting up? i just dont understand this....Hopfully these issues get cleared up here soon.

    Oh and i will not accept your ICQ message or anything you send me. No disrespect, but quite frankly, im not trusting anybody right now...adding someone who seems to know somthing about my account to my icq list just doesnt sound like a good idea right now. We can communicate via pri-chats here on stratics.

    I've taken this exact route on just about anything UO related these days...

    Maybe you should learn a little about UO accounts, heres a free lesson. Anyone who has paid for an account for over a month now owns the account. So unless you report someone taking the account within a 30 day window your **** out of luck son. I say good day.

    Not true, you can retrieve the account info regardless of the payment info if you posses the original CD key and account name, i know this from first hand experience.

    I think this is handled on a case by case basis, I sold an account 5 years ago and gave the guy a few months to pay me, was a guildmate, well he never sent the cash. I called EA and they said due to the fact the his CC had paid for the last two monthsthat they would not return it. I had and gave them the original code as I was the first owner.

    Of course you do, what drama queen wouldn't?:popcorn:

    All I can say is, I hope Tek is doing every bit of what he stated in icq, so some of you kids can move along, while we laugh at you.

    You say you didn't hack the account however your email information is on it... As far as me accusing you of hacking... how else does this happen? As I said I just want to know how it is my account ended up with your email on it. BTW I am not affiliated with anyone on UO so please not its not koc or anything else. And if you want my personal info Freelsy just ask, we can talk about this on the phone if you would like. I want to get to the bottom of this as much as you do. As far as UO not doing anything because its over a month... perhaps they wont do anything, however they will still have the information. Feel free to respond to me in PM so we can close this thread and everyone doesn't have to hear our yapping.

    Are you sure it's Freelsy's email in your account, and not someone else's email in both your and his account? How many accounts did you find with that email address in? You speak of more than one.

    Here's my theory. I think the both of you were part of someone else's hack attempt, which you foiled by spotting it before they acted. If I'm right, you saved your own account, saved Freelsy from more damage than you did, and possibly saved others whose accounts were targeted. I would urge everyone to check their accounts NOW and ensure that the email address shown is the one they expect to see.

    On a similiar note I had a handful of KOC accessed to my house. I'm not sure if this is from the same events, but I know its very disturbing.
    I thought I got away from most of the children when I left Production shards, I guess not. *waits for DF*
     

  17. Yes this is still true. I quit UO and a month after i quit my tamer account was hacked. I had no idea till almost a year later (aout 4 months ago) when i called EA and told them what happened.

    I answered all the questions and gave them the info and cd keys for the upgrades and i got my account back.

    If you dont do a secure transfor of the account you can get it back.

    Every time I access my account info EA sends me an email saying my account has beed accessed. That should be the first clue that your stuff got hacked and be on the horn to EA.....
