PMs From Person That Hacked My Alt
PMs From Person That Hacked My Alt
I'm pretty upset right now. A while back I fell for the fake "Quitting" Twitch Stream pretending to be SparcMac and, like a dumbdumb, I got phished. Immediately afterwards, I changed my password--thinking that that was all I needed to do. Like an even bigger dumbdumb, the first password on the alt account was the password of the throwaway email linked to the account (WG Sebald.)
When I saw that my account had logged in, I panicked--knowing that I hadn't had my account secured. I PMed my alt initially with something like "what the f***"--that's irrelevant now, I didn't screenshot the first few bits--but I did save all of these.
The hacker also locked me out of being able to send out a recovery request through Jagex's official channels.
All I'm asking is for at this point is for the account to be locked so I can get it sorted out before the hacker gets the bank PIN.
I'm honestly shook and it's hard for me to continue; all memes aside, I'm literally shaking.
I can’t see the images very well on mobile so I don’t know the full details, but if you’ve been hacked (which sucks and I’m sorry to hear!) then you should get your account locked and recover it.
The way for you to do this is via support using this link in particular - go to the secure account at the bottom once you’ve been through the other steps.
As you can see from there you should expect a response within 24 hours.
Apologies that’s the most help I can give right now as I’m still on holiday until Tuesday, but the support team will be able to help you get your account back.
Edit: I’ve had word back from my colleagues that the account was successfully locked and returned to the original owner earlier today. I assume the OP had already done what I linked but went to try get some sleep before getting a response. If anyone else ever runs into the same scenario, all memes aside the link I provided should be the first thing you do and the support team will get back to you within 24 hours <3
Man this is some next level shit. Imagine how much of a degenerate you have to be to hijack an account and then threaten the owner lmao. Either way, if you get the acc back and you lose your items and fire cape, I'll give you a blow pipe and gear so you can get it back.
You could perhaps try to send a private message to a moderator here or on twitter. Sucks so bad...
Ash is a genius
I mean on her profile pic she has cropped out half her forehead to make room for her cleavage, so can you blame the dude who asked?
So this was how he paid Woox?
scammed by a PMOD
me and a friend of mine were in a bandos trio. the pmod agreed we would all split the loot, he received a bandos chestplate as a drop, his in game name is "ten Penny" had the silver crown next to his name aswell. we agreed to all meet ge, as soon as we teleported he messaged me and said brb bathroom. and hasn't been back on since. this was about an hour ago. wondering how we go about reporting him. I also have a few screenshots of him saying brb bathroom, and when the drop happened.
this was when we realized he wasn't coming back
We were already aware of this through the usual reporting channels, I'd rather not go into detail but we have investigated this situation including reviewing chat logs, abuse reports and trade data.
As such we have reached a decision in relation to an appropriate outcome and this has been communicated to the P Mod involved.
To be fair how would this player ever know any action was taken place? Why don't you guys set up a system to send messages to the reporters that action has been taken so it doesn't feel like reports are just a waste of time and to avoid posts like this? People don't trust the reporting system, that's why they have to come here and hope for upvotes and possible Jmod smackdown.
Imagine risking your P-Mod status for a bcp.... in 2018....
We were already aware of this through the usual reporting channels,
that'd be a first
Is that 99 ice cream in the bottom right?
what the hell do you have for lights in your house?

We will be removing the illegitimately-gained membership which was received via bond redemption during the time the bug was live. Players who abused the bug will also see action taken against their accounts and will temporarily be removed from the game
You get to deal with Jagex customer service. RIP.
so what if you didnt know it was a bug and just thought some idiot was carrying around max money?
Thank you for your patience all. The newspost has been updated with a more in-depth look at the events of today (or lack thereof).
If you can't read it at work, here's the latest update:
We'd like to thank all of you for your patience and understanding during the time Old School RuneScape was offline. Shortly after the weekly game update went live, it quickly became apparent that a damaging bug existed. We were able to spot it so quickly thanks to the honesty of the community who helpfully alerted us to it, and we made the decision to turn off the game worlds to prevent further effects on the game's economy while the situation was investigated.
There was a lot of speculation as to what the bug was, and what was causing it. So in the interest of transparency we'd like to take some time to explain the issue.
One of the team was implementing the code for the pickpocketing update. This involved producing stackable pouches that are treated as being coins. On death, the aim was to convert them into real coins, partly so that a PKer could get the value if applicable.
When converting a stack of items into a stack of coins, it's appropriate to check that the calculation doesn't overflow the max integer limit of the game's language (2.1 billion). Unfortunately, the logic used for this calculation was incorrect, and when executed on stacks of other items (not the pouch itself) the result was to convert the stack to 2.1b coins.
Regrettably, although the pouches were found to be acting correctly during testing, the flaw affecting other items was not spotted as it was not expected to have changed.
Old School RuneScape has never experienced a rollback of any sorts before, and to set about restoring the game to an earlier state (prior to the bug) was an immense undertaking. The damaging effects of this bug led to a consensus quickly being reached, with the team resolved to undertake a rollback, if such a thing were possible. Subsequent investigation found that it might be possible, though not easily done.
The intention of the team was to attempt to roll back players' saved games to the approximate time of the game update (11.30am BST). Finally we'd like to reiterate that we've never done anything like this before. It's possible some issues may still persist, but we assure you that we'll continue monitoring the situation to ensure that normal service is resumed.
We're very much aware that players' other items are affected by this kind of rollback; sadly we were not able to restrict the effects solely to players who'd generated money from the bug, as coins are tradeable and the effects were far more wide-reaching. This means that players would have lost around 20 minutes of their activity. We're very sorry if you were fortunate enough to have received a rare loot-drop or something similar during that time.
The vast majority of normal players are now able to return to normal play, but a small minority of players may be affected by an issue attributed to their save files which will prevent them from logging in. Whilst this can be readily resolved, unfortunately it must be fixed manually. The positive news is that we are automatically made aware of who is affected with each unsuccessful log in attempt. If you find yourself unable to log in because of this issue, we ask that you remain patient, and we'll restore your access to game as soon as we're able.
Whilst we do acknowledge that the bug is a fault of ours, it became apparent that a number of players were quick to exploit it for personal gain, in such cases as players using the exploit to generate wealth to buy Bonds to redeem for Old School RuneScape membership. With this in mind we will be removing the illegitimately-gained membership which was received via bond redemption during the time the bug was live. Players who abused the bug will also see action taken against their accounts and will temporarily be removed from the game.
Thank you again for your patience.

Spent max cash on a dragon chain
my bitch love drink super range (ooh)
i refuse to edit. u dumb down to my level
i dont think ive ever seen a more relevant comment. shows over guys. give this man the acedemy award
Forget about mobile, when is osrs coming to pc?
in 20 minutes... hopefully.
i eat ass
not gonna lie, i am gonna liquate entire bank, sell for irl noney and then sell account if they add MTX to osrs.
Microtransactions (for ingame benefits). Technically we already have that with bonds but that was polled, has limited use and the benefit ob being able to buy membership with gold. At least for now Jagex doesn't intend to add MTX to OSRS but there were discussions recently that Jagex might be tempted to do so because their cash cow RS3 (which has a lot of MTX) is slowly going down the drain.
You can literally buy GP with cash via bonds lol. MTX already exist.
Same here. Even if it's like $100, better than nothing.
Nothing significant. The rollback removed all bug abused max cash stacks.
How bad of an impact will this have on the economy?
Wait so I turn off trending notifications on reddit so they send them to my fucking inbox....
From what I understand, due to the rework of Ardy Knights (and the new death mechanics possibly?) anything that would drop coins would result in a max coin stack. People took advantage of this buy purchasing bonds/swapping the gold to RS3 gp.
