    Apparently someone has been requesting my password from EA. Fortunately It's been going to my email address.

    I'm not sure how they are requesting this without logging into account management but your an [email protected]@hole for even trying.

    If anyone sees a leviathan running around it's an stolen account.

    Howdy Troll!

    If the new password is going to your email address, your account probably hasn't been stolen... yet. I would, however, contact EA Customer Service and ask about having your account name changed. I have been told it is possible. Whomever is trying to gain access to your account, has access to the account name! If it is a fairly common name, it is likely someone phishing around for UO accounts.

    While you're at it, have them add a second password of your choosing, to your account.

    Hope you're doing well! Miss ya! :)

    I would have to assume the only way this would benefit them is if they previously owned the account and the new owner never changed the email address. That being said This is the one account I "DID" buy about 7 years ago so I'm pretty sure the person that sold it to me figured "he probably doesn't even play UO anymore let me see if he changed the email address"

    I logged into account management right after this happened and I am still the owner at the present moment.
