Description


 I finished my membership out time, converted into F2P for a short time then discovered another game to spend my cash on. I did find out exactly what happened to my account however... it had been the fantastic Yahoo hack of a couple years back - that's how the hackers obtained my info. To this day I wonder how many players lost it due to that same thing happening to RuneScape gold... I bet it was a lot.

Not one of us understood for a long time - and a few people went overboard checking our systems for malware never to find any. Of course there wasn't... that the hackers had gained over a billion Yahoo account passwords. They didn't have to hack any farther. They all needed to do is log on to any provided Yahoo accounts and check for signs of an RS account get the most out of it if something useful was found.

That is EXACTLY the way I lost nearly everything I had taken years to make... and it's why Jagex lost a loyal client. NO. It was not... but the least they could have achieved was reestablish my account as it was not my fault either.

 Hell, I even assisted in turning in the accounts of one of those jackasses that did it - the little bastard had the gall to brag about it in front of me in the Grand Exchange the next day (definitely using a throw away account) but I did my part by reporting the entire dialog a page at a cheap RS gold. End result? They could not even return an email.

That does seem about right though... does not it? They seem to be conducting bad company yet years later in more ways than the participant gains nothing either way.
