Although I wouldn't have liked my first post here to be like this, it can't be helped so anyway, here goes.

Basically, earlier today whilst I was on ESO, some guy started a "whisper" to me and told me that I have a virus, at first I thought that he was talking rubbish, and i left ESO for a break. However, when I returned on about half an hour later, he started up the conversation with me again, but the only difference was that this time there was another name in the conversation marked "ESO:" as the account name and this name was in white rather than the usual orangy colour that names normally are displayed in, in whisper mode. This lead me to believe that he was some kind of MOD. ESO: said that if I didn't give him my password my account would be blocked for sporting a virus. So, after much deliberation between me and my friend, I decided to give him the information (probably a stupid idea) at which point he said that he would fix the problem for me. Later when i finished playing a game it logged me out and wouldn't let me back in as it said my account password was wrong. So it's likely my password was changed.

I have tried to retrieve my password from the ESO site with no luck however as the only send me an E-mail with a bad link saying the page cannot be displayed when I fill out their information.

So I have come down to the possible conclusions that I either: have been had by a bunch of sad account stealing retards, or they are actually dealing with the virus by preventing me from logging in. However, I am not stupid and realise that I have probably been had.

So I was just wondering has anyone else had the same problem? Or does anyone know of anything I can do, because I am probably going to have to go to the shops tomorrow to buy a new disc now and start a new account.

Anyway, thanks for reading and any tips would be appreatiated.
Thanks MightMoomin

U've been had, u can fake the white name by adding alot of spaces forcing it to the other line. Also even if u had a virus someone can't fix if they had your pass, it would be on your comp

Thanks for the info. Yeah I knew I shouldn't had done it, I mean what kind of moron gives out their password, but oh well i'll learn from it and move on. However, if they don't have my disc ID then surely I can get it back thorugh ESO's site thing by typing in the product code and ID number?

It seems a new copy beckons

If you email ES at one of their help addresses they may be able to help you if you still have your product code.

And the ESO speaker was in white instead of yellow becuase this other guy was spacing his talking untill the next line, where he then would add the ESO: and whatever he wanted to say. ESO most likly also appeared to be written at the same time as whatever this whisperer said. ES staff members will never ask for your password. Sorry 'bout your account, though. That sucks

yeah it's a trick that idiots often do to annoy or scare people

ex:

CrazyLunatic: kivlovs' grenadier rush sucks. (bunch of spaces)
ESO: give me your password


you get the point. Anyway email the people and they'll hopefully get your account retrieved. Also report the username of the asshole so he might get banned.

Ok will do thanks for the advice. On a name and shame bases if anyone sees him online be sure to give him abuse. His name was "(name censored)" and yes i think i should be able to get it back.

Most people have mentioned everything that you need to do. I would just say though, that ES people will have that [ESO] clan name, and their name will be blue (I think). Also, there are only a coupe that go on now, so you'll be hard pressed to see them. If you get into a conversation with them, they won't EVER EVER ask for your pass. If somebody asks for your pass, pest and report them.

I have tried that, however, the retard has changed the E-mail address that the request gets sent to, so unfortunately I am now screwed for my idiocy and have ordered a new disc now so thanks for everones help anyway.

Sorry to revive this old thread :s, but just to update you guys, after a month or so of bombarding ES with E-mails they finally managed to get the picture and realise my problem. Through my sheer grit and unwillingness to give up I have managed to get my account back! So I'd like to once again thank all you guys for your help, and i'll make sure I won't be so stupid in the future The guy has also left a couple of fairly decent home cities on, and so I should be up and running again soon.
