So, every now and then, sometimes every day, my friend on WW has been sending me realy rare and special items. Like today was the banana hammock, the googles pond, and the retired ice cream tree. I really like the gifts and all, but it makes me wonder... She says that she hardly every plays on WW and that her account might expire in a couple months. So, does that mean that she wanted someone else to enjoy the items instead of them going to waste on her almost expired account, or do you suppose someone got a hold of her password? Each time, I send her a thank you note, and then the next day there's a new present from her. I've gotten retired exclusives, pet items, rare items, super beds, or big W shop items that I end up selling to get more kc. This situation is a little strange to me... What do you think? Should I send some back? I mean, I really don't want to becuase they are great gifts, but if someone is in control of her account w/o her knowing, then I think it's only fair. I have asked her about it, but she acts like she never did, lets it get past her, or she says 'So?' which is different for her. It's like this whole thing is a little secret. Help?

We have two friends that have decided to let thier accounts end. They were kind and sent us all of their items. Enjoy the gifts that your friend is sending and continue to say thank you. Hope this helps you out.
I would take her aside, away from all other friends, and say pretty much what you said here - 'I love all the items, but I just want to make sure it is you sending them, not someone who has your password and is stealing from your account.' That way, you're letting her know why you're asking and sounding grateful at the same time. She may have just decided on her own to give up Webkinz and wants to send her items to someone who will appreciate them. If she isn't giving up Webkinz and is just having fun sending presents, you might want to show her the GE values in the Wiki here, so she can see the values that she's freely giving away. You're a good friend, it's nice of you to be a little concerned.
If someone you know outside WW, definitely follow MyEscape's advice.
I'm reading this as the person is someone you ONLY know online.
So you can do the same, but may have to select good phrases to make the meaning clear.
So perhaps you can ask [Works in Kinzchat +] I am thrilled by all of them, but do you know
the value of your presents?
or Are you the only person to use your account?
If this has been going on for a while, it would be unlikely that an account has been
hijacked, but not impossible. I would tend to think someone would change their password
if items were missing. But it might be a younger person in a household on a shared account.
Unfortunately, there really is no way to tell.
But if is really has happened for a while, it is more likely done by choice.
I have seen and known people who decide to move on and look for people to distribute their
items to so someone can enjoy/use them. It's better than thinking all of what you managed
to collect was for nothing. Especially if someone else might like them.
Yes, you shoud try talking to her some more. You could invite her over to your house and show her everything that's going on and then she'll know what is happening. Or maybe she is sending those to you and justifying that she isn't because they are friendship "secret admirer" presents.
Thanks everyone! She is a real life friend, but like I said, she rarely pays attention when I try to talk about WW becuase she believes she is getting a little too old for WW. She has TONS of webkinz (like, 80 something) and so far she has sent me about 20 of those items and sometimes doubles. I really hope this is her. Thanks for all the advice! All these answers were really good.
She isn't a member of WI but she has checked it out a couple times. I should talk to her about the GE. Maybe she'll be more interested then about the sending of all these really good gifts she's been giving me.
Also, she has been sending me a bunch of jumbleberry field prizes. They are all just food, but she's sent me a lot of them and like before, some are doubles. This is strange. I'll ask her about it.
Good point Brtswim! Maybe that is so...

if she thinks she is too old for WW then she might not want to discuss it in front of other people. try asking her by herself, and show you are genuinely concerned for her account. The gifts sounds great, but only if you friend intends for you to get them . I think you should keep them, and continue to send thank you notes. I hope everything goes well!
