Stripped Bare

Logged in today at Lumbridge bank, where'd I been last night after completing the circus for the new clothes. Teleported straight to the citadel to finish capping. It was only afterwards that I noticed my money pouch was empty.

 

Upon further inspection, it turns out I've lost:

 

Bandos

Armadyl

Claws

~10k cannonballs/~5k sharks

Robin/ranger boots

Fury/glories/etc.

Ahrims/Zamorakian spear

Runes/herbs/gems/half key collection

Santa hat (Yuanrang's, which he gave me after maxing)

 

After looting my bank and selling it off at the GE, the hacker was considerate enough to return me to my previous location: http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/1438/lumbridge.png

 

And now I'm remembering smaller things, like the fact that I used to have 2k unicorn pouches. :mad: I'd never considered myself a rich player, but now, adding up the losses, I realize that I'd probably underestimated my wealth. Such is the consequence of hoarding toadflax, uncut diamonds and other random stuff. They took all the marigolds I'd farmed myself. :eyebrows:

 

Bright spot: I have 1k uncrushed nests which the hacker was evidently too much in a hurry for.

 

I'm mostly baffled. Since 2004 I've managed to keep my account secure. This is truly out of the blue.

:/

I would donate some money, but I'm pretty sure you're still richer than me even after being hacked. >.<

I'm sorry to hear that. Good to know you've got some start-up money, and don't forget that money is often easier to make the second time around.

 

Unless you were doing high-risk methods.

Ummm sucks really bad. :(

Need some money?

 

Did you do anything which could have got you a virus?

I hope you scanned for viruses etc. This makes my loss look less. I lost 150 mill, including full dragon (sp), green h mask, guthix dhide, bgs, dclaws, sol, and some others. All I had left was my bank, untouched, and the 8 mill in my bank, and 1.3 mill or so in my money pouch. So 9 mill total after being hacked =/ I'm assuming you can make your money back easier though. My methods all got ruined one way or another :(

Thanks guys.

I've reached a point in the game where I don't really spend much money anyway. :P In fact I should probably be the one donating rune sets to you!

Yeah, I just don't think I'm motivated to rebuild my bank to the way it was.

The only activity I need money for is strange rock hunting. Whatever I get from crushing those nests should be enough to cover that.

Did you have a bank pin? Just out of curiosity, if you do and you aren't even sure how they got your pass and pin then thats a bit worrying for all of us.

 

Supahackers! :aware:

Yeah, I did so immediately afterwards. Estimating my loss is difficult since I'd never bothered to measure my wealth, but I'm guessing I lost around 300M.

Yeah. I'd read of it happening to other maxed players from the HLF, although I was always skeptical. Even N0valyfe was similarly hacked.

 

What, JaGEx still doesn't restore hacked accounts or something? :blink:

 

No. Which is kind of understandable, I guess; each person is responsible for their account's security.

I was led here by the title "Stripped Bare". I'm disappoint to not find a naked CS.

I got similarly hacked on Christmas Eve where the hacker also bypassed my security pin. :/ If you need any help, I'm sure I could lend you a few things.

Don't I owe you like 3-5m for a citadel event? :cute: Perhaps now would be a good time for me to pay you!

I'd help, but I'm not sure giving you another santa hat is a good idea after immediately getting hacked. :P

 

(And what are you talking about, that hat was a gift for you to keep reaching your goals provided you didn't hate me for potentially enabling you to feed the addiction!)

Hey, if you've got santa hats to spare... ;D

This blog title is very misleading, I will walk away very disappointed. :aware:

I wish you the speediest of recoveries, knowing you it shouldn't take too long ;) a real shame about the Santa as it was a gift though.

Whoa, easy there, tiger.

Ouch, that's awful. For now I'm just going to loaf Castle Wars; we'll see where it goes from here.

Maybe not right now. I'm not sure about the security of my account.
