Experiences recovering a banned account?
ringoshiba wrote in wow_ladies

my friend tried to log in this morning only to find a welcoming message of her account being banned due to suspicion of gold selling. She's never done such thing. Does anyone have experiences on how fast the issue could be resolved and if she'll get her account back?

We suspect she's either pissed someone off and they've reported her for goldselling, or this has been caused by me letting her use my credit card to pay for a realm transfer in the past.

Thanks in advance!

Yeah, it's possible the account actually HAS been used for goldselling, by someone other than your friend. Check her armory to see if her toons are still wearing all their armour, and take the steps necessary to secure your system just in case.

Wow_ladies has a really good guide on account recovery, here.

That's impossible, she has an authenticator and her account hasn't been logged in since she last logged out yesterday. I have her on Real ID so I can see when she's last been online. In fact she just got back from a couple of months long break about a week ago, so this is really crappy that she can't play when she just resubbed.

Though it doesn't sound likely that she was hacked, I do want to point out that it is possible for people with authenticators to get hacked, as it has happened to a couple of my friends.
