    My horror story is that I got hacked. And then they replaced my gear and all my gold and I put an authenticator on the account. Well, I guess that isn’t much of a horror story. ^.^

    Mizer just got hacked last night. He messaged me this morning that someone changed his password. He reset it and all his gear/gold is gone across all his toons.

    Hopefully Blizz will make it right.

    Yep, I was hacked. I tried call blizzard, but I can’t get a live person on the phone. Milamber, how did you go about getting your stuff back?

    Also, my account just got closed for Terms of Use violation, basically selling gold. Nice. Milamber, how long did it take to get your stuff restored?

    Oh shit. I saw him logging off and on all day, and I thought, “that’s weird”… I should have realized he got hacked. Mizer, don’t fret too much they should get you all your stuff back. If they undercut what they owe you, send them another email and they’ll recheck what they owe you.

    Also, def check out an authenticator. I got one for my iphone and it’s keeping me safe.

    Dudes getting hacked left and right. Maybe I should invest in an authenticator.

    Everyone should have an authenticator. If you don’t, it’s a real good guarantee you’re gonna get hacked.

    Very sorry to hear. I’ve been lucky so far although my best friend seems to have been hacked.

    Good luck getting back on your feet again.

    Damn Mizer, sorry to hear that man, I was wondering why you had not been responding to my tells and messages in gchat…

    Stabs, fortunately most of the stuff has been restored, I now have a complex, randomly generated alphanumeric password that is saved to a textfile and copy-pasted into WoW when I need to log in. Phish that!

    Mizer, for some reason I didn’t see your posts yesterday. As far as it went for me, Blizzard noticed that my account was doing weird shit (selling everything, shipping my huge stockpile of gold to another account) and they temporarily closed it until I updated things and picked a new password. As soon as I got back on, I just put in a ticket and they did the rest.

    Since your account was banned for what the hacker did, I think they only thing you can do is call them, since I’m guessing you can’t post on the forums now.

    Also, it only took like 3-4 days to get my stuff back. The first time they restored me, I was missing 10k gold. I emailed them, they looked in to it, and got my gold back. Honestly, it was one of the best customer service experiences I’ve had (what little I have had at least).

      I emailed them (calling them was out of the question, they always had high volumes of calls and they wouldn’t let me hold until someone became available), and got a response today saying they forwarded my info to a specialist who would get back to me in a few days. I am definitely getting an authenticator after everything is squared away.

    I got an in-game mail today from Blizzard that informed me you were hacked, Mizer, and that the hacker took some items out of the guild bank while in possession of your character. Items were enclosed in the mail, so they should be working on your account.
