Angry Unanswered: Gift from a friend...

Last week my friend texted me telling me she had just gotten a new webkinz account and she wanted to give me her old one. i accepted the generous offer i have always wanted a webkinz account but my mom never let me have one cause she said it was too expesnive.

Just today i was logging into my account and all my money and items i had were gone! i texted my friend back asking her if she had been on it latley she said no.

So what my real concern is should i change my password? i do trust her but i think she might be taking the money and items from that account onto her new one some how.

Please comment i greatly appercaite all the help i could get!

ooo geez i don't know - thats a tough one about your friend--i'd change the password immediately tho. as soon as a few of items were missing, i changed my password because I knew one of my friends knew it....sorry about your problem tho. When you and your friend get together sometime, ask to see her WW house and see if there are items from your new account on HER new account.

If you do not want to hurt your friendship by changing the password just say that you think it might be a hacker. It is possible. Change it to a long password is my suggestion.

You can also check you kinzpost and see if someone has been sending things out of your account and you can see who they went to. There may be a glitch in that account that may be causing things to dissapear also. There have been some really strange glitches lately on WW. Good luck with your new account and welcome to WI. Its a great place to learn and get new ideas.

You can change the password, but she can still access the account with an adoption code. If she told anyone else the password, they could be using the account, too.

You should change the password anyway to something you like, and you should change it occasionally anyway to avoid hackers. (Speaking from experience.....)

If you can get an adoption code for one of the pets, that would be a really good idea. Oh wait! Here's a better idea! If you can adopt a pet of your own, then you would have an adoption code for the account. Watch for sales, and maybe you can get a pet for $5.

This is a really good idea because it is the best way to track down who is getting your stuff! The reason is because you can only send one package per day to each of your friends. If someone on your friends list already received a package that day, chances are they are the ones who are hacking your account.

Welcome to WI, Bunnyslippers13! I'm sorry to hear about your problem... it's a sensitive issue, but, if you handle it with a smile and tactful honesty, it will be fine! Just tell your friend of the problem you've been experiencing, being careful not to accuse her! Read the information in your Webkinz guide and on the bulletins, and then you can honestly tell her, that you found out from Ganz that it would protect your account better if you changed your password. Of course, we all know that Ganz repeatedly warns us to never share our passwords with anyone! So you can stand behind that if she asks for your new password. On the other hand, you could just change your password, and not say anything to her at all!
I hope all works out well for you and your friendship. Enjoy Webkinz World!

Wow! I would definately change the password.
Also You can't send money from one acct. to another unless they are $1000kc coins. Just change the password & then hopefully you won't have that problem anymore. Sorry about all the stuff you already lost though!
Have a good day!

Changing the password won't work if she has the codes yet... even if she gave you the codes, she still could have written one down.
