I’ve Been Robbed – Hacked

April 3, 2009

Imagine my surprise this morning, when I walked into my Yoville apartment to find I have been robbed.  They took my yocoins and a lot of my furniture and big rugs.

Hacked.

I changed my password for myspace. I doubt it has anything to do with my password though. I checked a forum, and several others were hacked, but the robbers were taking rare and unusual items, not the normal furniture.

It makes me mad.

Robbed. Hacked. Whatever.

My goal for this game was to see how nice a place I could make without spending any real cash. Well, my YoVille apartment was pretty nice and I’ve only been playing the game for one month. I was starting to save my free yocoins so I could buy a small home, other than my apartment.

I emailed support for YoVille. Since so many have been hacked in the past couple days, I imagine it will take awhile before I hear anything from them. I wonder if they will give my stuff back to me.

I don’t play monopoly or risk with cheaters. I shouldn’t have to deal with cheaters in an online game. It just makes me so mad.

Don’t flame me. I know it’s free stuff.  I know it’s just a game. But it was my free stuff.  It was my home in the game.

    I got robbed too! It does make me so sad. They renamed my house “fucc u” and left really mean comments thanking me for the things they stole. What now? I know it just a game, but I am really peeved.

    Yup, happened to me too 1 week ago today and I still have yet to hear back from Zynga. It’s just really sad spending month earning things such as coins and collecting rares and costumes then poof all gone.

    I got hacked on facebook and myspace. go figure let me tell you what I played this game like all of you fair and square. i was stupid I spent probably 100.00 at least over the time since yocash came out and had many things i have all the houses including he yocash house. I had 2 koi ponds stolen, many costumes, all yocash stuff stolen like velvet two sets of patio 6 pets fountains, tiki stuff floors walls 2 gumball machienes, etc much more so i contacted yoville its been about a month I have heard nothing. Im seriously mad because not only did I work hard i spent real cash i know stupid but I did. they should have a way to protect us and if this happens get our stuff back and work harder to find the hackers. I know being a normal person on yoville I run into hackers at most events so its not like it is hard to find them. they need to get with it they are taking the fun out of the game for sure. I want my stuff back. I also started a different account on facebook because my myspace account was being hacked every couple days and now they stole all my stuff again. today Im so over this.

      Katie, I’m sorry you lost so much. I haven’t spent any money in Zynga. A lot of time, but no real cash.

      I logged into my account this morning, went to the factory, then back to my apartment. Someone was in my apartment. I used the option to kick them out. I’ve been kicking people I don’t know out of my apartment every time I find them in there. LOL I’m really hospitable I know LOL But I have this fear that strangers are out to rip me off. Anyway, I’ve no idea what they were up to, but I had to try several times before it kicked them out of my apartment. It generally takes one time. So I figure she was a hacker.

      I have heard ( through myspace friends) the people wearing big tall hats with those weird glasses – no eyes were the ones stealing this past week. They were all over yoville a few days.

      I am really on the look out for strange behavior and happenings since I was robbed.

      Zynga really needs to do something about the hackers. If they won’t do anything we need to stop using their programs.

    Thanks for the warning. I just starting Yoville last week.

    Can someone tell me how they can steal your stuff?
    I don’t get it.
    It hasn’t happened to me, but I am nervous now.
    What should I look out for?

    • November 4, 2010 2:25 am

      hunni read my comment, your lucky if it hasnt happened to you and we dont want that to happen those greedy rude guys\girls will ask for yur passwords for anything do not give it to them or if they say ill give yu a spa or something but you give me that ____ first in trade or a gift if yu do they will disspear or kick you out and you wint see them again and booom youve been robbed so if they say my trade only works if you send it to me it wnt let me put my item for you in then there a hacker and they r lieing. so always SAY NO to that and No for anything that asks for your password coz there are rare and the biggest robberys around babe :)

        ima hacker but i dont steal stuff from ppl. I think that that is just

    This was this year, i started playing yoville about last year and i was saving my money i had around 50,000 coins 0 yocash and i had 2 cats 7 dogs a spa glasses, dresses, all rare things and i was happy and rich, but curious for some costumes so i found a evnt in yoville and it said free costumes go to this website so i did and it tells you to pick one and leave your email password and if your yoville was on myspace of facebook so i did. and then i wasnt able to go back on my yoville so i went on my sisters myspace and found my yoville robbed everything gone just the cheap old stuff left in my house and apartment my spa dogs cats rare stuff everything gone, then i was able to change my facebook passzword and went back on my facebook they didnt do anything to my face profile just yoville all my glasses, bathers hats everything was gone, but luckly my coins were still there they didnt take them and with those coins i bought everything i had back but it wasnt enough so im still saving to buy more of those things and do you know if i can zynga and how to message them so they can give all my things back? i love the game so much and still do but i hate that i was hacked and robbed, EVERYONE DO NOT EVER PUT UR PASSWORD IN FOR ANYTHING because you will end up like me :(

      Im sorry but you’re done.. they probably already hacked you..Im so sorry. I think i’ve been hacked too because it wont let yoville load but when i go on my cousins account it loads and i went to my house and everything’s there and my character’s the way i left it too. So i’m not sure if i’ve been hacked or anything but i do know you might of been hacked because once they get your I.P. address your done..

    my account was hijacked for over 4 mths , iv been playin yoville for 2 years,, iv reprted it numerous of times and still othing to both zynga and facebbok, i have the account numbers and pictures of my hackers, im ashamed to say i spent 13000euros frm my own pocket on yoville and not even an apoligy , i feel so angry and disgusted how easy someone can strip u of ur pride and dignity and yoville do nothing about it, they bragged and left comments on my page, my whole photo album from day 1 in august 09 is on my profile of the stuff i had, and my hackers who added dem selves to my profile on a daily basis, i know they have spare accounts but wen u enter a room to do a coin run there room is on level 1 but yet full of my stuff, there a mon th in yoville according to there profiles and yet have every cash item, any house they have are coins, because they have no yocash, and alot of them are perverts who are been mwommys and daddys whicj is sick and my family are taking it up with the austrailian police , becoz alot of middle aged ozzie women are involved with this paedo ring, they need to be caught, but like all my other messages and comments dis will b ignored also :( poor kids

  42. June 28, 2011 10:36 pm

    Hey, I got hacked exactly 7days ago :( was completely uncalled for. The hacker tried to hack both of my accounts. My adult server account & my Kid server account. Now luckily I was online when the hacker tried to get into my accounts, so I was able to secure my kid server account, yet I can’t get into it because facebook’s asked me to upload photo I.D to prove my identification which I do not have & for my adult server account, well she got in except she got blocked out automatically because Facebook messages my phone a confirmation code everytime my account is getting accessed from a different IP address. So since I’m actually only 17, and my kids server account was my main account I can’t get back into it, and my adult server account only had a set of expensive clothes on because I only use adults to sit in at auctions.. well I’ve started all over again, and in a weird way I’m glad I got hacked because it’s given me a chance to start over fresh. Even know I spent around $150 of my own money for yoville on the other account but that’s okay :).

    yeah, i got hacked too just this morning. I woke up early and went into my apartment to find only 358 coins. I didn’t take that seriously and reloaded the page. But nothing changed. I had lost all paris stuff and groovy summer things :( I lost my 23,000 coins and some pretty cool stuff :( I lost my statues and my car. :( Now all i’ve got are the cheapest items :( Yoville should really do something about ths. I literally cried too much, hat my nose was lke.. coming out! I really hate cheaterss!! i wish they would just die!!! They should literallyyy dieeeee :'( they’re the worst ever bornn!!!!! DIE, CHEATERSSS!!
    u know whyy this happened… cuz i trusted some yoville survey website where i gave my password assuming that that’s an official site and i can get 100 yocash, as it promised. But instead, i learned a lesson! People, bewaree the cheaters and don’t trust any website which promise u impossibilties :'( I can’t beleve i fell for it :'(
