As Jenivere said, this kind of thing happens sometimes, sadly. It could have happened to any of us. Honestly, I feel worse for how much you and your son have lost thanks to this person. It really doesn't sound like a gold farmer, though. I would think one of them would have just taken the money, vendored the stuff, & run. Putting up auctions & running instances sounds like they were at least thinking of keeping your account as long as they could get away with.

Thanks guys.

As far as I know, nobody got access to my cc's. I was concerened that because they had access to my email that they would be able to access my cc's due to statemtents, etc I have there.

I need a scan for keylogger program - anyone know of a good, free one?

Thanks!

Zan, I'm sorry that happened to you and your son. That's terrible.
I'm glad your toons have most of their stuff back even though it must have taken forever to sort things out.

Hey, my hunter is lvl 21. You could play with me sometime! She's Beastmama, a hunter who has been hanging out in the wetlands lately... I tend to play in the late evening, 10-midnightish CST.

Some key loggers / gold spammers get priest chars and take them to shadowlab and run third party software over and over to warp around and solo shadowlab for cash, cash drops and to DE things to make more cash, so it could have been one of those. and the good news is if bliz sees them using third party software while the account was out of your hands they wont ban you for it like they normally would. anyway, here is another good scan program

Hello

It's been a while since I last posted here. I had originally intended to level a warrior on runetotem, and she's still like lvl 5 or something lol...

SO... I think I'm going to transfer my 70 pally tank to Runetotem instead... if you guys have room for a pally tank, that is.

Really really sorry to hear about the hacker drama. My old guild on the Bloodhoof server went through something similar, only it was the ex-cofounder that decided to rob the bank and /gquit. Ugh...

Thanks for the advice about my character. I've done a couple more upgrades and I'm feeling pretty good about her.

I'm sorry to hear about everything DFB, that really sucks! Have you received anything else back yet? I wish I was on the same server. I have tons of cloth and all that that I never use.

You guys sound like me! I've been missing from Runetotem lately because I got tired of playing for nearly 3 years and still not having a 60. I DO, however, have roughly 20+ toons on 5 servers somewhere between 20 and 50. And no, I am NOT exaggerating.

I took my highest level toon, a 54 Draenai Hunter, and just got him to 60! Finally! Luckily, it was one of the servers that I played the AH a little, so I had the cash for the epic mount! :-D

Of course, now they are going to raise the level cap to 80 soon...

I've burned through all my hunter's rest xp, so I'll start hanging on Runetotem again.

I just don't get it. How can account hacking possibly be profitable? Bliz must keep transaction logs! Why can't they just say "look, he/she sharded everything, sold them for this much, and mailed it to these accounts. Let's ban those accounts and reset the toon and the bank items." I mean, it's all in the same freaking database! It isn't like they wired the money to a Swiss bank account! How can they not take the money back every single time within 5 minutes of being notified? It just floors me.

If I had a money printing machine like Bliz does, I'd keep it as well-oiled as possible.

Just wanted to update.

I received an email from Blizz yesterday saying that the investigation was closed, the rest of my things and money would be returned.

I logged into wow and I had mail with the final returns.

I'm bummed as I did not get my sons clefthide armor back lost a few farmable rep items, but I'm not going to quibble.

I got rid of Norton, installed a new virus/spyware program. So far everything is looking good.

Buddha- get yer hiney back over to runetotem- I've got little toons I'll run around with you! My priest is stuck at 17 over in draeni land. I think she's getting mad at me... I keep getting texts from her telling me that if I don't log in and play her she has a special enchant just for me... Not sure what she means by that, but I don't want to take any chances.....

It's about time. Sorry he didn't get everything back but I'm glad most everything is back in order.

My 70 will be glad to have more 70's, it raises her chances of getting to run more dungeons. She is getting very bored with doing all the repeatable quests. At Zan's encouragement she is now running some BG's for the first time ever and rather liking it. Perhaps she will soon have enough honor to pick up some decent purple items.

My husband has been 'bored' with wow so he cancelled his main acct and was going to 'start fresh' for a couple of months. So I had him use the recruit a friend thing. The leveling together is insane we share 3x XP its awesome! And every 2 levels I switch from my warrior to my paladin and he grants her a level!

If you win a BG you get the tabard... and every time you win a BG you get a chance at getting the dragon pet. (gold medallion) They get mailed to you.

I thought the tabard was ugly, but the dragon pet is cute.

So you can get the dragon without being on a Chinese server? From what I'd read (avid pet collector here), they were only available on Chinese servers. Hmmm... may have to consider a BG or two.

They were available on EU servers first but at midnight (server time) last night they became available on US servers.

I only had to win 4 games before I got my pet.

I agree. I like the colors of the tabard, too.

I did my first bg on Elune yesterday (of course I've done bgs on Illidan before with my characteres there, but it was my first on Elune).

I just hit level 51 the day before, so there was a dwarf outside the IF bank telling me to talk to a Lieutenant outside Alterac Valley. So that is where I went and picked up several quests for it on my way in. Alterac Valley was completely new for me as I'd never had a character hit level 51 before.

I lost the first two, and had mail after the first. All you have to do is participate in a bg and you get the tabard in the mail. I then went on to win the next two bgs and forgot to even look if I had mail after my 1st winning bg. I was having a lot of fun, after all. So I'm not sure if I won the gold medallion after my first win, or my second. The website and SOK forum said there was a 1 in 5 chance of winning the dragon pet every time you WIN a bg. I know someone who told me he had to win 8 before he won his pet. I guess I was lucky.

I got my dragon for my main. It's cute.

I've been doing random runs with a friend and his buddies. They've taken me to Kara a few times, MT and yesterday ZG. It's been fun to go but do I feel very old... All the boys (youngish teens) call me mom or granny. LOL

I've been working on my baby toons as well. My mage is now lvl 14 and has done WSG a few times. Well, she mostly dies there, but it's still cool.

Good to see some of you back on Runetotem!
