A new thing on facebook showing as a sponsored AD for runescape came up for me stating it was mobile testing.

I clicked on it and signed into what i thought was runescape. Immediately I knew it was not being that it asked for my bank pin and I went to change my password within 45 seconds of my first account username and password being entered. I thought I was fast enough but I wasn't.

The same crew that got into my account managed to get into my bank! My bank pin has never been entered outside of runescape and was not entered to the scam site. I was ready to take a loss of 300m for items I was wearing. When I logged into RS everything that was in my bank was gone aswell adding a new total to aprox. 850m including kiln capes and untradeables.

Please be careful everyone! This seamed very very real and even had the correct links on it. (Posed as Runescape Mobile on Facebook). Hope everyone has a great and safe day this is very depressing for me.

Do note! I can NOT set a new Bank Pin, when logged in it says I have a bank pin and I can not use it, when logging in now I am not asked to enter it! I even tried to set a new bank pin then relaunched runescape and it still does not ask for a pin!!! This security breach into my bank seams more like a glitch or bug that hasn't been given enough light even though it was my fault the account got stolen.

Hi there
Hummer Twine


Read this: Fake Mobile Betas
Sadly, the fake RS3 mobile beta is deceiving a few players right at the moment.

The instructions to change your Bank PIN are here: Changing a Bank PIN

You are not asked to enter your Bank PIN if you have just lobbied or world hopped.
Try closing down your client completely and log out of the game completely then open the client and log in.

Full details located on this QC thread in and ongoing discussion among the forum community!

Bank pin was enabled for every time log in and every attempt to get the pin to work failed for a full day. Pin works as of now but details are located in the other forum from above.

Thank you for reading and commenting!
