Unanswered: For Everyone Who Received Free Money Last Week *** Please Read***
As many of you know, there was a glitch last week when Ganz was doing site maintenance and many people found they had extra money on their accounts when the site came back up. I had called last week and asked about it but the gentleman I talked to didn't know what the plan was at the time. So I called again yesterday and was told that the accounts who did receive extra money were going to be allowed to keep the extra money.
He did want me to emphasize that this is only because it was their glitch, and they are not condoning or encouraging cheating. I asked more about how someone would cheat and he explained that it can't be done accidentally and it has to do with a program so, you would have to know what you are doing if you did this. In those cases, when large sums of money are obtained by dishonest means, accounts will be closed. he wanted me to make sure I explained that this happened because of a glitch with ganz, and it did have to do with people who tried to adopt a pet during this time. So in this instance they made a decision to allow the money to remain in the accounts. But if you ever log on and find a large sum of money that wasn't there before, it is a good idea to contact them before going on a shopping spree.
Also, they do have an alert system that notifies them when an account "wins" a certain amount of money within a short period of time. When that alert goes off, someone comes and takes a look to see if it was legit. I don't know much about the tools some people use to cheat, but it does sound like some people do, and that Ganz is able to pretty quickly find out who did. So I strongly encourage people not to do this, because they don't take it lightly. But again, he said this isn't something someone can accidentally do. You would know if you were cheating by this method, I believe it involves installing something on your computer.
So if you were lucky enough to inherit money, you can now go crazy buying stuff. I inherited about $45,000 and my daughter got $10,000.

To the best of my knowledge, every time I tried to log in, it awarded money to my account. When I tried to adopt, I couldn't get in at all, even though everyone else could. So I kept trying. My daughter who tried to get in fewer times than I did, got much less money. I was trying to log in for several hours. Then we have 3 other accounts that we didn't try to adopt on, and none of them were awarded any extra money. So the amount of money people got was different for everyone.
