Okay, I bought the alt Hisana, from my friend Haruno 'Lexi on FAM' for two of my ported alts. Me and her were friends for sometime now so the trade went good. So once I got Hisana, I put my primewings on her and just had the alt.

Then the next day, not that long ago from now the alt Hisana comes online..I whisper the alt Hisana, at first I thought it was like dogproxy being stupid. But when I got a whisper back I knew something was up, as I was talking to the person who was on "supposly my" alt, it was a person who I did a recent trade with. They were telling me how they bought the alt months ago and ported it. Where as I just bought it yesterday.

Basically the person who bought it first, bought it awhile ago and i guess didn't log on it? So Haruno/Lexi took it back and re-sold it. Lucky me I was the one who bought it

Earlier this morning I was checking my email before class, and I noticed I had an email from Furcadia regarding that a password to one of my alts has been changed. I thought it was a hacker, so I immediately logged onto the services website and changed my password. Once I logged on the alt, I noticed that she had been digo'd, and I thought that was kind of fishy.

So later on, I come home from work and I logged on Hisana to see if anyone had any information about my alt supposedly being 'hacked'. Kelli whispered me, and I discover that after I had bought the alt months ago from Lexi, a mutual friend between us both, had re-sold the alt to Kelli, since I never changed the password.

Now I suppose you can say that's my own damn fault for never changing the password in the first place, but who would expect a good friend to turn around and do something like that?

Anyway, to make a long story short, Lexi has scammed us both, and it's very ridiculous. I like Kelli, I sold an alt to her recently and everything went smoothly, and it bothers me that Lexi would go and do that to both of us.

Yes, Kelli is getting her wings back.

Man, I never really ment for this to happen to anyone!

One day I was going though my alts, trying to delete ones I didnt want anymore.  And here, I logged onto the alt Hisana.  So I was kinda like, okay..
And after hearing from another friend that Juli, one of my good friends and the original owner, was saying crap about me and I had no idea what I did, was kinda like, whatever...
And seeing as she never changed the alt's pass, I guess I kinda let my anger get the better of me and claimed it as my own.

Juli, Kelli, I'm so sorry.  I relly didnt mean for this to happen. :<
I truely, truely, am!
If there is ANY way I can repay the both of you, I will do it!
And Juli, I dont know if you really did say it, or not, but I owe you the most...

Omg. I don't talk shit about people, period. It makes me feel extremely guilty and like shit, so why would I do it? Especially to someone I considered to be a really good friend. You know damn well I wouldn't talk shit about a close friend, especially you.

That's stealing, Lexi, whether or not you were angry, and you acted rather immaturely about it. Instead of confronting me about whether or not it's true, you decided to do a childish thing such as take back an alt that I paid for a couple months ago and resell it. I'm seriously appalled, I never thought you'd do something like this.

you should NEVER claim an alt that is no longer yours, no matter the reason.
it doesn't matter if you're flaming pissed off and ripping your hair out or not.
and it doesn't matter if the person supposedly talked shit about you or not.
it's a childish and regressive act, and it kills whatever reputation you might have had, slowly but surely.

there's NO reason to do that.
i'm not promoting it, but if anything, find another way to "get revenge."

The spaces/digos that were paid should probably be returned. Please let me know if this hasn't been done by the weekend. (It'll be considered a scam, so please settle the matter before it comes to this.)

I'm not transferring any stuff. It is Lexi's responsibility to fix this situation, if she wants to avoid that we treat this as a scam.

I see. She can be the one to spend the ten dollars to transfer it then, or else Kelli is going to have to wait until he 30 days are up. :/ Sorry, Kelli. :[

Lesson: change the pass. When it comes down to it, it was Jovi's responsibility to change the password after the sale. Otherwise you're just asking to be scammed.  :roll:

I believe I've already stated why I didn't, and no, I didn't forget, I just trusted her.

Anyway, the only thing we're waiting on now is for the wings to be transferred, so Kelli, you may as well mark this thread for deletion.  :shock:

It's actually better that she didn't change the pass in this case because we caught a scammer.

The fact that she didn't change the password didn't force her 'friend' to take the alt back, it was her 'friend's' own malicious behavior.

If you berate everyone who makes these kinds of threads, people will be less brave enough to make them. Nobody wants to be yelled at when they come for help; especially about things they've already stated they knew like changing a password.
