My account has been hacked before, maybe by accident. Sometimes, I used to type my password in my username box. I assume that this one annoying kid saw it and hacked my account. Over 10 valuables were taken, one of which happened to be my hot tub. ( The day before, it was in the Curio Shop, so it might have been a glitch) Also, my exclusives were taken, such as my Twister In A Pot, my votex, my gold safe, my Lurking Lagoon, and many more. My PSI's that were taken included my Love Pond and my Puggy Bark O' Lounger. I'm glad they missed my bowling Alley!!
Eventually, I got all my items back (Thanks to postalone, my mom, who was in the GE). Thanks!

If scamming happens to you:

1. Stay Calm and check all your rooms. Write down what is missing.
2. If you are in the Gift Exchange, put those items on your wants list.
3. If you have more than one account, try sending valuables to your other account.
4. Use clues to help track down the culprit. Which include where you were the last time you saw your items on your account, who was around you when it happened...
5. If you are a child, notify a grown-up right away.

I hope I helped. Remember these tips if you get scammed. Thanks!

Wow! So sorry to hear that you got hacked into. Thank goodness for moms to the rescue!
Some people just think it is a game or a challenge to see what they can do and take. They have no idea of the damage and hurt emotions they leave behind (or don't care).

Thanks for posting this and for all your tips - very helpful!
Hope you'll be back building up your Webkinz collection again in no time.
