I am happy you know what happened. What I do not understand is if they could trace what was sent and who did it, why they will not at least put the items back. They are virtual items after all and could easily be put back. I hope they cancelled the other girls account at least.

I agree that if my daughter did this to someone I would want to know. I would contact the other mother and try to approach it casually, saying "I know that it's just a game, but my daughter worked really hard for these items". I think the other mother could make her send the items back if Ganz hasn't suspended her account. If the other girl was my daughter she would be grounded from the computer for a long time. I'm sure if she's that bored there are some things she could help do around the house. It's sad when you have to have a talk with your kids about how some people have no morals. It ruins the innocence of youth to be hurt in that way.

Hi Bonnie.

I am sorry this happened to you and your daughter. You seem to have taken the right steps after this. I hate to think of how your daughter is feeling. I recommend making a really good password now, one with both capital and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols. Webkinzgram also has some really great tips in the password thread, which has a link in my sig. Good luck to you in replacing all of your items!

How terrible! I'm so glad you found out who did it - I would be at that child's house ASAP talking to her mom .... In a few more years hacking could get them into serious trouble.

By sharing this information, I bet you've helped many of us avoid the same thing. I'm going right now to change our password to something more secure.

I'm so sorry this happened. I hope Ganz has let you know that the other account has been closed or something. I think they take that very seriously, I hope they do at least.

My older daughter is the same age and she and her friends sign on at each other's houses. She also willingly traded one of her POTM items for something ridiculous while not at our house. BUMMER, I tried not to make too big of a deal about it b/c it is just a game but I did let her know she won't get another one and she needs to make sure the trading is fair!

I think I will go and change my kids passwords right now just in case. Ours aren't too tricky either.

That is just terrible, I'm so sorry she had such a hard lesson to learn.

Default Re: My daughter's account was hacked into :(

I actually did call the mother first in this instance. I left it up to her to confront her daughter. This girl has come over already and made an apology in person to my daughter and from what I was told that is only the start of the consequences for what she did. I really think she will learn from this experience.

As for our password it has been changed to something alot more difficult to remember and type. My daughter has learned from this as well......
