Alrighty. Let's not do all this random-intro nonsense this time. I'm just gonna get right into it! Here we go!
I was in 4th grade I believe, when it happened.
There was a girl at my school, who I suppose I'll call A in this story, who played AJ like me. One day, at lunch, she asked me for my password. I honestly don't remember why she wanted it. Maybe for no reason at all. I dunno.
I refused to give it away, but she kept asking, begging, pleading, and promising that she would NEVER give it to anyone or use it. Finally, peer pressure got the better of me. I wrote down my password for her, and told her to keep it in a place that no one would find it.
A day or two later, I logged onto AJ. I played around Jamaa for a while, trading and what-not. Finally, I decided to go to my den. When I did, I realized that my prized Epic Wolf Plushie was not in the place it should have been. In fact, NOTHING was in that spot!
I checked my Inventory, guessing that it was just a glitch, and my den hadn't fully loaded yet. But, after checking and re-checking, I still didn't see my Epic Wolf Plushie. Panicking, I tried everything I could, but the wolf never appeared. I checked my Clothing, and my recently-earned Rare Heart Locket was gone as well!
I could already tell I'd been hacked. And I could already guess who had done it.
I texted my best friend, telling her that A had hacked me. She messaged me back, saying "A says she didn't do it."
I was skeptical, but my best friend said that A swore she didn't do it. I e-mailed AJHQ that night, telling them what I lost and begging them to please give the 2 items back. Honestly, all I wanted was the Epic Wolf. It was my favorite item back then. I also changed my pretty-easy password to a longer one.
When I saw A at school again, she told me that it might have been her older sister who had taken the password and hacked me. Thing is, though, she said her sister didn't PLAY AJ! I asked about that, and A said that her sister just might have done it for fun.
I never got those 2 items back. I was lucky that nothing else was taken, but sadly, my amazing, adorable Epic Wolf Plushie was gone forever. I eventually earned the Heart Locket back, but to this day, I still miss my Epic Wolf, whom I could not replace.
Let this me a lesson, to you, and myself: Don't give out your password to anyone. Even if they promise they won't use it, chances are your plan to keep your account secure will backfire.
I hope you enjoyed that story! Well, okay, I don't know why anyone would enjoy a hacking story...but...you know what I mean!! :P
Remember to PARTY HARD, BE SAFE, AND JAM ON until my next post, everyone!
