Please don't hijack other people's threads.

If you have already submitted an account recovery form, you will need to wait until it can be resolved. We can't provide an ETA sadly.
Dear Pattyg

Ohhh Dear you got hacked too :(
Blizzard told us that it could take about a couple of hours or more but they assured all will be ok , I let you know when we get our Chars and account back as for now waiting is the only thing we can do.

Thanks for the update Nightgale, glad to hear it's already being looked into :)

When we go to the links they give us an 404 error nothing we can do
Seems the link is assuming the " . " is part of the URL. If you remove the dot symbol the page should work. I'll pass on the information though to make sure it's not an oversight.

Thank you :)

Dear Blizzard

It is a shame that things like this happened my Partner in life is a very lawful man he feels insulted by this mail came from blizzard he is playing wow and other Blizzard games for years as do I and had never ever a problem he can not be responsible for other bad peoples act who hacked his account . We both are middle aged pair and our children playing WoW too , this is the worst thing ever happened to us. We are one of this pairs who met in wow years ago I from Greece and He from UK , 3 years ago I left Greece to be with my beloved Nidalapp for the rest of my life as we fell in love even in this age..... I love Blizzard for that, it is of great important to me to get my Nidalapp back as tears is the only thing I have now in my eyes ...

please help
Can we do it from my Battlenet account ?
It works from my Battlenet account
If you have already contacted our support team to report the account as compromised, please wait while it's being investigated.

I'm afraid via the forums we're unable to assist you with this issue, but I hope it's resolved soon.

Dear Hagut

I'm sorry to take your time I know how much work you have , I only came back to the forum after we spoke with Blizzard and didn't expect to get a mail like the upper one after we explained what happened ,of course we can wait if only all things go back to normal. we both thank you for your reply it is comforting to know that we got heard from Blizzard. Srry for the panic I feel , it is coming only out of our love to World of Warcraft ..

Thanks again
