Yeah that sucks. I got scammed once, by a guy who went round hacking peoples accounts and using them to insult people. I'm glad you got it back, though. x3 :D

When I was in grade 8, someone who didn't like me sat next to me and watched me type my password, and then stole my account. I didn't get it back for two years, but I kept e-mailing the Neopets team and trying to prove that it was mine. I told them every password I've ever used, the pets I'd abandoned/created, items I had at some point, etc. Eventually they gave it back. :3

That account ended up getting frozen, though, which made me sad.

Someone who knew my password logged on my account and stole all my NP. (only 80,000 at the time, so it doesn't really matter now) My account has also been cookie grabbed - but I logged on and changed all my information before my items/pets/points could be stolen. I still have that same account too - the first one I ever signed up with and the only one I've ever used... angel_devil_1013

I've never been scammed! :3

But I don't want to.
Maybe the scammers think I'm too poor, so they don't want to scam me xD.

I've never been scammed. Simply because nobody has ever tried to scam me! ;)
