I was just watched a Twitch stream that looked like an official Runescape broadcast (however it was probably old footage of Jagex employees talking about future stuff). At the top of the stream it said that I could activate double XP on my account if I clicked on the link below. Unfortunately, I did it and it took me to a website that looked Runescape official. Therefore, I tried logging in with my information and nothing happened. I tried this multiple times and did not reciveve double xp. Eventually, I logged of my account and then tried to log back in. However, I was unable to for quite a while (made 10 minutes). When I finally did log back in, everything I had in bank worth value and GP were gone. Please be careful when watching twitch streams..... :(

My "phish-dar" is getting better but I still get caught now and then.

It's important to learn to constantly question every time you are offered free stuff, "is this legit?" and if you can imagine any way you might be getting scammed, triple check it.

Hello,

This is a known phising, which happens alot. Best to report it directly to Twitch and check out this article.

Because you're hacked, I suggest you to also read the account security tips to protect your account again.

Best of luck!

Never ever click a link, even if it looks official. Go to the rs website yourself and find the information :P

Same with emails, RS related or not.
