Can I have your Webkinz username, password, and secret code?? NO
 
I have been searching around the internet looking at other Webkinz forums ( WI is the best) and I have seen people asking can I have your Webkinz username, password, and secret code. Please do not tell them I wouldnt want all the members of WI to lose their accounts to some person that they don't even now! I have seen things like this I am a poor mother who cannot buy my seven year old daughter her dream present a Webkinz I have not a penny to my name and really would like it if someone could give me their Webkinz username,password, and secret code please My daughter would be so happy. She is in tears every night because I don't even have enough money to buy a house, food, and clothing. My daughter goes to bed hungry every night without having anything to eat. Welfare won't give us checks. So can I please have your Webkinz usernames, passwords, and secret codes my daughter would appreciate it so much. :(

Here is what someone said the computer you are on right now is worth more than 200 Webkinz you can buy them on ebay for 99 cents.



This person is probably lying but she might not be but WI I want to keep you safe so PLEASE don't give out our username, password and secret codes to anyone. You can give out your username but not password and secret code with it!

JUST SAY NO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for listening ~webfrog1005~

Keep your password and secret code safe please!!!

Please comment

That was my first thought, believe me if I had a child who was going to bed hungry. I would be working a second job, I wouldn't be on the computer unless it was a typing job bring in money to buy food. That computer and anything else that I could sell would be right out the door.
Total agree, never give out any personal information over the computer or anywhere else for that matter.

Well, she could be using a public computer at her local library....
But, even if that was the case, I still think this is very suspicious because she is asking for your username and password. (Oh, and the secret code) If she was indeed a financially challenged mother whose only wish is to have a Webkinz account for her daughter, all she needs is to get an unused pet code. Really, all she needs is to find someone kind enough to donate an unused code. Why would she need someone else's username and password? To me it is almost obvious what she is planning to do with them. ::)

I hope no one will be fooled by things like this. Thank you for the GREAT reminder!:thumbup:

Your story is absolutely a good example of how caring people get ****** in by scams like these. If someone is on the internet which is a fee to use, and have a computer $400+ to have... they can afford a webkinz. I get them all of the time on E-Bay most are less tha $6. Except for the new or retired ones of course. The only time I pay full price is if I need a specific one for a gift and don't have time to shop around.
Thanks for reminding us all to keep are information to ourselves.

Another thing that people should do is change their password atleast every 4-6 weeks. Make sure it is something random which includes letters and numbers.
For example: blueflower33, redbike010, monday55, ect.
Don't use your name,a friends name, or a username as a password.

Tokyo Rose is absolutely correct. Whether she owns the computer or not, whoever it really is, has no right to ask such things. And anyone on Webkinz should know better. This is a great lesson for parents to impress upon their kids though.

Thanks for bringing it up.

This is a very big safety percation for your spent money and your webkinz account. You never know if you can trust someone with you webkinz in their hands. Even if the person seems nice, they might be tricking you into something.
I think that is is sometimes okay to give out your usrname, if you want to be friends with someone, but you still have to keep in mind when you do that, your occount still has that slight risk. thanks for bringing this up, rep for the great reminder!
