    Did you use gamecards or a debit/credit card to fund your account? Cause if you used a debit/credit card you should be able to provide them with receipts as proof that it's your account. I don't know how the game card thing works out, I don't know if you could take a picture of the scratched off cards and send it to them - but then again I highly doubt you'd keep those sort of things laying around after using them.

    Well...in essence you could...provided you lived in some gigantic city where the cops love to be pursuant and assholes. I know some big USA cities actually have investigators and cops that deal with electronic frauds and justice. Unfortuantly, it takes someone who really wants to be vigilant about the case - which unfortuantly I'm pretty sure that almost no lawyer or cop would want to spend the time and effort into arresting/suing someone that stole a WoW account.

    The best course of action you have is to simply email/call Blizzard and provide them with proof of ownership. If you can't do that, than I'm sorry to say you are most likely boned.

    Though. Since you mentioned Chinese; I do believe it's a huge case right now that a whole load of accounts have been hacked lately from some group. Blizzard hasn't been as reluctant to give back accounts for the time being due to that, cause if I'm not mistaken it was over 10k accounts hacked - so they really don't have the time to be spending dealing with all those claims.

    So go make a new Blizzard account or whatever it takes to use their support system, drop them an email, or call their customer service up. If you're scared to do this because you've played on private servers, I'm pretty sure they have no clue since when you play on private servers you're game isn't talking to the official servers at all, that's what the realmlist change is for - so you're not authenticating with official servers.

    Listen, I know for a fact that the only way to get a blizzard authenticator off your hacked WoW account is to contact blizzard with your general details and serial number of your original WoW game. (Unless you have the serial number to the blizzard authenticator, but if it's hacked, there's no reason why you would have that.

    Even if it's not connected to an authenticator, blizzard is probably going to ask for the same thing: Gen info and cd key/serial number. Their new blizzard account things are really annoying IMO. And I have a feeling that it will take about a week for your account to be free'd again.

    So in the meantime, if you have an ipod touch or iphone, download the free authenticator application and the second they free your account, hook up the account to your own authenticator. If you don't have an ipod touch or iphone you'll have to pay like $7 for a stupid looking keychain one, and I'd order that asap because I have a feeling it would take years to get delivered.

    EDIT: You need the authenticator because if you don't have one, the hacker could just get the account back in a week, month, or maybe year from now and hook it back to an authenticator, meaning you'd have to wait another week or so for it to get back under your control. The authenticator means you CANNOT get hacked, unless someone has access to your authenticator.

    Blizzard gets bitchy when they hafta restore people's hacked accounts/characters because they feel that if the person was dumb enough to let it happen, then they shouldnt have to deal with it.

    The Authenticator is a great addition to security, and apparently the lil launcher thing that starts up before you even load the game apparently prevents key loggers from working, i guess by taking a seperate path to the .exe file

    private server? lol you dont get trojans from playing on the main servers, you get them from downloading crap from websites..namingly using Internet Explorer, since it has highly known about security issues. That and dont buy gold, easily done eh?
