It was all a pretty genious plan, but it was a long term one as well. They supposed you (cuteforpop) wouldnt notice anything till it was too late. . . the plan was workng but luckily cuteforpop you did something fast. the number one rule (lawyer rule) is to not assume your opponent is unsmart. I hope everyone gets what I am saying. . . .
I totally understand, and I know it's pretty clear to everyone else too, Softbop! This plan is pretty smart because you test it out with something like a PSF or small W-Shop item, and if they don't care, you just keep getting bigger...

Another thing I would like to add to this plan is that the reason that I didn't act on the two shirts and PSFs missing was because I thought it was a glitch, and Ganz cannot replace missing items, it's their policy. Well, if it had been one of my big ticket items than I would have DEFINATLEY called Ganz, changed my password, etc etc and they wouldn't have had time to do get anything else. And in the long run, they do get more items if they take smaller ones before the big ones...

The way you reacted cuteforpop is probably the way I would have acted
But now I am SUPER aware LOL (this has kinda freaked me out)
But I mean no one would have really caught on till this point. . . . . So what I was stating may have been hard to figure out in the begining
Now everyone is aware so this should prevent future hacking
I am off to bed, Night and I wish you the best of luck for the rest of the year with No Hacking and No problems

LOL Softbop. And honestly, as I told you in a VM, I probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't logged on when my account was all jumbled.

Well if you're so freaked out I'm sure you'll be changing your password in the morning.

Yes, I hope it does. The truth is no one should overlook a LOLLIPOP missing from their dock because that could be the start of it.

Good night, Softbop, and thank you so much. I wish you a good night sleep.

It does sound to me like it's someone you know. Have either of you told anybody about your account or password?

It also sounds like your BFF has a good idea in changing her password every week. You should do the same. And like she said, make it really HARD to guess.

And I'm just kicking myself for assuming these things were glitches because if I had acted on it in the first place, I could have saved my lab coat and whole lot of work fixing my account.

And hiding my stuff is a really good idea! And see, I do this actually with my best clothing items, whenever I log out I always put my best items on my pet because it takes longer for them to see my pet than to see it in my dock. What freaked me out was that I checked my main pet who had all my best items on her, and they had moved her REALLY far away from the room she was previously in. Obviously, they would have HAD to see my best items!

Oh, and my BFF changes her password every week, she's a huge safety freak.
I think that you should delete all the people who it MIGHT be from your friends list. Then, they can't send items to themself and stuff. Also, you might want to keep all of your favorite items in a safe. They have them on WW. I'm sorry this happened!

Default Re: What can I do to ensure this won't happen again?

One other thing you can try if you still have problems (which I truly hope does not happen!). I have heard that in a worst case Ganz can change your user name. Without that, the hacker will have a much harder time. You can check with Ganz to see if they do this, but I'm pretty sure I've heard people here on say they have been able to have their WW user names changed. Best of luck! I hope it all works out for you.

I think the very best thing you can do is call Ganz or have an adult call them and tell them that you have been hacked. They won't give you your things back, but ask them if they can change your userid for you so the hacker will not be able to get in. This will protect you in case the hacker somehow got ahold of one of your pet codes. And pick a password that you can remember but is hard for someone else to find out.

Oh, i feel so bad for you! If the suggestions from softbop don't work (they probably will) you could change your password to one with case sensitive numbers and letters i.e. one more thing the password i'm about to use as an example is not real. cOrNChiPS235689





Good luck!! i hope you catch the hacker!

Yeah, I always worry about

is the first thing they would do.

Only my two BFFs know it, and they wouldn't do that. Especially since I know all their passwords.

The hacker is not someone I know, so the pet code idea is not possible.

Thank you everyone so much, and if I didn't reply to your post directly I'm taking your advice.
