Wink Stop the stealing - show outgoing kinzpost also

You read over and over how people have had items go missing. Obviously this stuff gets sent from one account to another via kinzpost in this thieving process. Why can Ganz not change their kinzpost programming to show not only what you have received for mail, but also what has left your account? Then you could pinpoint who it was that has been merrily helping themselves to your account. I know my daughter's account was hacked into; the only way I found out is I had logged on and found items that were normally stored in her halloween closet had found their way to her dock, unfortunately some had already been sent to the unscrupulous hacker. Had this option of ingoing AND OUTGOING mail been available we would have been able to see who it was. Just an idea, but I think it would benefit us all, as well as prevent a lot of unecessary phone calls to Ganz about "where did my item/s go?"

They send it or traded away. They can put tracing on the resent kinds post and trading . But i can see how that can backfire. While it will help to catch scammers. A lot of people may abuse it . Thay traded something later changed their mind and they report it was stolen, traded without their knowledge
Better Ganz should put a password protection and not only on kinz post but also on trading room and w shop (I can see someone selling your lava lamp for 500 kinz cash as a mean trick)

I did not care before because my kid's account did not have much to still . Not any more . Now she does not know her new password , And i usually let her play on one of the extra accounts . I feel sorry this happened to you so maybe this will help for the future

I love this idea, but also agree with LH how it can backfire.

It sounds good in theory and it would be useful in a lot of ways. I would assume that just as when you receive mail and someone removes you from their KinzPhone & it shows up as...Someone no longer on your friends list... (or something to that effect) the same would hold true for any outgoing packages. So, you still wouldn't know who the alleged hacker could be.

I'd actually love to see this put in place to keep track of packages that I send out. I have several accounts that I rotate items to, and this would be a great option to have

That is a great idea! Ganz should not help people who call and claim that there items went missing-i know it sounds rude, but at least you know who you need to delete off your friends list. I think there should be an option to put a lock on your house, like a special combo that only you know, to prevent people from going to your house. In case you want your house to be extra secure. You would be able to take the lock off or turn it on. I would probably use it ALL the time! This way, you can be sure of which items should never leave.

I think that is a good idea! I could see the problem of an item being given to someone but later reported stolen, but I don't necessarily think there would need to be a report button. You could just look at your outgoing KinzPost and see that someone you did not know took an item, and you could then call Ganz and have them locate the item/hacker.

Oh, this might be an even better solution. Kind of like a double whammy security feature - the password, plus a locked up house. Just something to stop the thieving that goes on would be awesome.

Default Re: Stop the stealing - show outgoing kinzpost also

I've also been thinking about this, and its a really good idea. Even if it just showed your 'Last 10 packages' sent, or something like this. That way, you always know where your items went if they were sent via kinzpost. And then, as you mentioned, if someone gets onto your account and sends a package to yourself, you can see which user the package went to and delete & block them from your Webkinz Friends List. It would make things easier, too, and would be convinient in many ways.

Good idea! Then those people could get in trouble.. Yeah. And then GANZ could go on your account and see and all that.
