I had my main account frozen on neopets a few months ago.
On yahoo answers there was a question about someone wanting an account that was 16+months old, which my alt is.
So I agreed to give it to her on one condition:
I had a single neopet on there I did not want abandoned, the rest were fine, but not this specific one.
Well a few days ago I decided to play NP again and wanted to make an account and transfer the pet I wanted saved to that new account.
I go to log on and it's not there, she abandoned it.
BUT. she had some nice painted pets on there so I decided to get a bit of revenge.
Paint brushes are fairly expensive, so I'd be pretty pissed if those pets got taken away from me.
So I changed my password. :)
The painted pets were
Darigan Paint Brush - 1,400,000 NP
Speckled Paint Brush 42,000 NP
Mystery Island Paint Brush 4,800,000 NP
Faerie Paint Brush 1,400,000 NP
I sent her an email with:
I asked you very nicely not to abandon my neopet, but you did, so I took my account back and the neopets on it.
surprisingly, she replied within a few minutes
Going to be reporting because you hacked so I can get my pets back.
Which is funny because on this
page it clearly states
Keep in mind:
Contrary to what many people claim, no one has ever hacked into Neopets, accessed user information, accounts or usernames. The ONLY means by which a user can have an account stolen is when they inadvertently or intentionally gives away their password.
I hacked my own account?
