So i just noticed an email that i got from you guy's (email checks out) saying that the emails from now on about password change shall be sent to an email that do not own. I proceeded to clicked on the "cancel e-mail change" and it said it was successful. but i'm left feeling really uncertain on what i should do and if i try to change my password it will be sent to somewhere else. would love to get some feedback on this and thank you for your time.

This is happening again, I can't even find the previous thread I posted on originally.

Somebody is requesting password resets on what is now a daily basis, this was happening before Xmas then stopped and started a week or so ago.. As previously explained 10+ years ago my account was compromised and I fell prey to a phishing scam when they were relatively new and many, many competent people lost accounts.

I went through hell. As I say this was many, many years ago and haven't had a problem apart from these password reset requests.

So I have changed my old email so nobody in the world has it or knows it however my log in is known and this is how the person is sending password reset requests..

I have changed my email, have no viruses etc my email is secured with two step, I have authenticator on and connected to my phone.. Nothing more I can do, just like my heart sinks every time I see a request and quickly log in expecting the worst, just not a good feeling..

I also sent a report to the relevant team after finding a web page with thousands of RuneScape accounts with first ever pass and email and username I mean literally thousands upon thousands of accounts Mine being amounts them, as I said I reported it and sent a link to the relevant team..
I am awakening my creative powers, I remember who I am, I am the one I have been waiting for.

Are you referring to the Powerbot leak of 2014?
That is the only known leak of Runescape logins/emails and the leak wasn't from this website.

I wasn't aware of or referring to any leak & definitely wasn't suggesting Runescape were responsible, I found a web page with scores of accounts names on and reported it, it's been removed but sure the document was 2009?
I was more leaning to the theory of phishing scams and gathered information that way not a leak. because a Powerbot leak would not affect me in any shape or form my problem was years before 2014 and down to my own naivety albeit many years ago people are still falling for them now, let alone when they were relatively new..

It's just a worry getting emails 3-4 days on the Trott saying someone has requested a password reset.. What else are they trying to do?

I am very confused atm. I have tried for two days to play RS, but have been stopped at the 'Validate your email' page. ALL attempts to sort this out lead no-where. And just now, I was let through - for which I am grateful. But what happened?? And if it was an error, is there any way that I can be ... compensated? ... for having missed out on the LAST DAY of the Skillfest event? This has been quite upsetting, as I was truly looking forward to, and was preparing for, the last day of the event.

BTW, I have just converted the 11,500 Skill Off Tokens in my pouch to try to salvage what xp I can; but still very upset.
