Default Unanswered: A question about ethics on Webkinz

I have an acquaintance I met in a forum about webkinz not related to this site. This acquaintance is an adult player and I was wondering why or how she kept sending me rare items. Well today she gave me a code for a panda and I used it but what I didn't know was that it was a stolen tag. I later asked her how can she afford to buy so many webkinz daily and send me items all the time. She sends me rares and always gives me things. Now I come to find out that she is stealing codes she told me it's super easy and you won't get caught. She goes to Jc Penny's and steals the codes and she said that she stole 7 tags off of pandas and keeps all here rares on another account so she won't clutter up her main account. She also told me last month she called Ganz and lied about missing items she got a lighthouse that way and a cloud machine and who knows what else. I feel super guilty and bad that I've been taking some of the things she sends and I always tell her not to send me things. What should I do?

To make it perfectly clear I had no idea until today what she was doing or that she was stealing. I'm an adult player myself and thought it was cool to find another adult player to talk to.

Well, my first question to you is this....Does she know YOUR webkinz user ID?? If so, she can steal from YOU!

All she needs for this is one of your pet's secret codes and your WW user name....and she can change your password and get into YOUR account.

You may want to think about letting ganz know about this. This is a really big deal. It's people like her that is causing Ganz to not want to replace the legitimate missing items of PAYING customers. The honest users are paying the price for people like that. It's completely unacceptable in my opinion.

I agree with Wesleykinz about informing Ganz about the person. They need to be informed about the person.

I hate to be the barer of bad news to you but she has your information because she sends you items and to do that, you have to have the persons ID only and not their password. Since she has sent you items, she know your user id. Let Ganz know that she had sent you an item and see if they would be willing to let you change your user ID.

I am an adult player and started because of my son.

If she gave you the code for a panda then she knows everything she needs to know to access your account. She knows your username, otherwise she wouldn't be able to send you stuff. All she needs to do is put in your username, press forgot password, and put in the code for the panda and she will be able to change the password without you knowing. If she's stealing tags and sending you rares all the time, then she probably has plenty of stuff and wouldn't bother with your account, but I would definitely contact Ganz and explain the situation just in case.

I have two accounts she only has my one account that has nothing on it the asian account my main she does not have. My main account she has no info on so I'm safe and it's funny I'm super leery of giving out my info so I give out my asian account for friends.

I was thinking the same thing, when she said she gave her a panda code.

Delete her usernames from your friends list. If you receive any invites from names you don't know, do not accept them. She cannot send you gifts if she is not on your friends list. If you receive an invite from her again, block it. You can't control what she does but you don't have to be a part of it.

I would report it to Ganz. If they do find out (and they probably will because cheaters eventually get caught!) you will be guilty too and could lose your account. I personally wouldn't want to take that chance. I would delete her from your kinzphone and block any attempts to become friends again. This is taken very seriously by Ganz (as it should be) and you would be much better off reporting it than possibly being "involved" because you didn't report it. I know that you just found out and shouldn't be guilty of anything to this point - not trying to say that you are - just that now that you know about this illegal stuff - you need to report it.

Please keep us posted.
