Lvl 60 Rogue, LFG

Posted by MideonNViscera (2257 posts) -

Got an e-mail from Blizzard inquiring about my WoW account. That's funny, I haven't played WoW since early 2006. At that time I let a friend "borrow" my account to play on a different server when I wasn't playing. We fell out, I stopped playing, he stole the account, no surprises there. It was half surprising because I never actually found out until years later, but whatever. I just assumed he'd sold it by then.

Well, he did apparently, or at least that's Blizzard's concern. I never knew there was a way to get it back until they came to me with it. Now I'm waiting to hear if I actually have to fax them my ID, and after almost 6 years the account should be mine again. I dunno if I'll play again, but it sure will be funny to take it back from some douche who probably paid a lot of money for it. Lord knows what level my rogue is by now haha

Or if he even exists, but if the account's been for sale before then it's probably got something. Anybody have stories of anything similar? Be interesting to know if they'll just nuke the account if I don't prove I'm myself good enough.

Are you sure it's actually Blizzard and not some lame phishing attempt? I get plenty of emails from NCSoft "inquiring" about my Aion account. I've never played Aion.

Ditto for my WoW account, which is real BTW, but the emails are always bogus.
