Hi there
ayn sof


What should you do next?
Review your email and account security.

Jagex recommend a three layer approach to account security:
* 2-step verification protecting your email
* Authenticator protecting your RS account
* Bank PIN inside your account protecting your items and gp
If you didn't have these, you need to set them up right away.

Change the password to your email.
Then follow these instructions: Securing your account

Very sadly the stolen items and gp are not replaced by Jagex.

Yes, email tipoff@jagex.com and report the hijack.
Jagex will check the trade logs and track the hijacker and, depending what they find, will take action against them.

When I say "depending what they find", it's because the investigation of your account may turn out to be part of a much larger hijack investigation.
Jagex may not take action straight away as they may still be gathering evidence.

It is important to report hijacks as Jagex don't necessarily know a hijack has occurred until it gets reported.
Most hijack reports are logged as part of account recovery but, if you didn't need to 'recover' your account, then a report has not been done.

Jagex won't share with you the account names of the accounts that traded your items.
Usually those accounts are not the hijackers main.
Hijackers typically move items through a web of stolen accounts. Your account may have been used to process the stolen items from other accounts.
Some of the accounts may be completely innocent, just purchasing an item without realising it was stolen.

As Ladyolake says this is or was another persons thread.

As Ladyolake also said Jagex won't do anything about it as it is a honor issue between people who went on a Bandos trip.

You just need to go with someone you trust.

Locked the thread and removed the post naming and shaming.
