PostSubject: compromised account advice from SE....   Fri Feb 15, 2008 1:14 pm

So I was bored today while revising and was flicking through the playonline help section and came across the above heading. Decided to give it a read since we had all the account hacks recently, this is what they're suggesting...

Response Policy

A compromised account is defined as someone who is not the account holder gaining access to an account through unauthorized means in order to use the account. These actions are not only against the PlayOnline Member Agreement, but may be prosecuted by law in real life. The theft of an account is a crime punishable by a court of law. The victim must report the incident to the nearest authorities. SQUARE ENIX will cooperate with the authorities in any way possible. Please change your PlayOnline password immediately to prevent further damage.

* phaal calls the local police station*
< police station> Hi how can we help you?
< phaal> I'd like to report a robbery
< police station> Ok, and when did this robbery take place
< phaal> I'm not sure, at some point in the past 12 hours
< police station> Do you know what's missing?
< phaal> Yeah, they took my final fantasy account, the bastards...
* pause*
< police station> Was anything else taken?
< phaal> Nope, that's it so far as I can tell, nearly had two jobs to level 75 aswell...
*l ong pause*
< police station> Is this some sort of joke?

Seriously though, I really doubt any police station would be impressed if you called them to report that your game account had been hacked, more likely to charged with wasting police time.

Should've told them an Osode was missing, maybe they could've replaced it D:
