I want to link my google account to my RS account "Imn0tanoob69".
This google account is also the same contact email I already use for this account.
When I want to link my google account I get an error message that there is already an account linked with my google account.

Which is strange since I never did that, so when I log in with my google account to find out which account has been linked I can only see "No Displayname set" when I go to account settings and I also can't unlink this account from my google account because there is no unlink button available at the link account section.

How the hell can I fix this??

Hi Imn0tanoob69.

You may well have inadvertently created a new Runescape account linked to your Google account.

The way to fix it is to:

1) Set an email login on the Google-created account
See this support page for the steps to do that:
Add a login email to Google created accounts

You will need an email address that hasn't already been used as the login name for a Runescape account, but as you have a gmail account, you already have lots of email addresses available.

Gmail ignores dots on the left hand side of an email address, and plus sign and anything that follows. All these email addresses go to the same gmail account:
runescape.player@gmail.com
runescape.p.l.a.y.e.r@gmail.com
runescape.player+01@gmail.com


2) Check that the new login email and password work for that account

3) Unlink that account from your google account:
Removing Google from accounts

4) Link your Google account to your main Runescape account
Link your account to Google
