I finished out my membership time, converted into F2P for a short time then discovered another game to spend my money on. I did find out what happened to my account however… it had been the great Yahoo hack of a few years ago – that is how the hackers gained my info. For this day I wonder how many gamers lost rs07 accounts due to that exact same thing happening to them… I bet it was a great deal.
None of us knew for a very long time – and some of us went overboard checking our systems for malware to never find any. Obviously there wasn’t… the hackers had obtained more than a billion Yahoo account passwords. They did not need to hack any farther.
All they had to do is log on to any given Yahoo accounts and check for evidence of an RS accounts and take advantage of it if something helpful was discovered. That’s EXACTLY how 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 restore my account as it wasn’t my fault .
They all had to do was restore my account… that is all I asked for buy osrs accounts. Hell, I assisted in turning into the account 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 following day (definitely using a throw away accounts ) but I did my part by reporting the whole conversation a page at one time. End result? They couldn’t even return an email.
