This morning I logged in to find that someone has accessed my account. Nothing was stolen, but I was in a different location and my private status was changed from on to off so nobody knows my account is online. HOWEVER, I noticed there was 5 bonds in my cart ready for an illegitimate transaction that would eventually lock my account until the bill is paid, and this has happened to me before. Right away I changed my password and set up a 2 step authentication. THE MESSAGE YOU SHOULD TAKE AWAY HERE IS NOBODY IS SAFE, SECURE YOUR ACCOUNTS NOW!!! Cheers.

Another point: I believe the hacker knows my login email address, which cannot be changed. This presents a security risk and thus I changed the registered email on my account as well as secured my login email. Cheers lads!

Hi there
riskyfart


You posted seven weeks ago about being hijacked and the hijacker making a purchase on your account.
Posting that it is about to happen again only seven weeks later indicates that you did not properly secure your account back in January.

I urge you to change the password to your email right now!

Hi @Malua

You're correct, I did not take the security precautions I should have, however I have now done all that I can. I was lucky this time to say the least. I tried looking into change the login email and it seems that's not an option. Either way I now take security very seriously.

Hello New007

I've had to hide your post because you mention a player by name. On the forums, we do not have any way to verify what has happened in game. As a result, we do not allow naming and shaming, which is mentioning a player by name in a negative light. If you did not report this person in game, you can email reportphishing@jagex.com to let them know about the situation.
money for nothing and some hugs for free!
