Default Have you been scammed?? Read this!!

People scam you for many different reasons. It could be jealousy, for ex. you have an item they want really badly. It could be because they are greedy. Or it could be because they can't afford to have stuff in Webkinz World that are really cool.

My account has been hacked before, maybe by accident. Sometimes, I used to type my password in my username box. I assume that this one annoying kid saw it and hacked my account. Over 10 valuables were taken, one of which happened to be my hot tub. ( The day before, it was in the Curio Shop, so it might have been a glitch) Also, my exclusives were taken, such as my Twister In A Pot, my votex, my gold safe, my Lurking Lagoon, and many more. My PSI's that were taken included my Love Pond and my Puggy Bark O' Lounger. I'm glad they missed my bowling Alley!!
Eventually, I got all my items back (Thanks to postalone, my mom, who was in the GE). Thanks!

If scamming happens to you:

1. Stay Calm and check all your rooms. Write down what is missing.
2. If you are in the Gift Exchange, put those items on your wants list.
3. If you have more than one account, try sending valuables to your other account.
4. Use clues to help track down the culprit. Which include where you were the last time you saw your items on your account, who was around you when it happened...
5. If you are a child, notify a grown-up right away.
6. Change Your Password!!!

I hope I helped. Remember these tips if you get scammed. Thanks!

also, look on your my pets page to see what day the culprit got on. then ask people what they were doing on that day. but don't sound suspicous. or if you know who did it, just say i sold all of my exclusives and got TONS o kinzcash! it was the smartest thing i ever did! that will get them to admit it. and change your password daily. but before you do that, send all your exclusives and such to your other account and spell out STOP GOING ON MY ACCOUNT with the rooms.
