Sorry for the LONG reading LOL Smiley_XD.

There's a bunch of incorrect information here, so I guess I'll correct it. It's really sad that people don't know what can and cannot be done with your public Internet info, so let's try to help out.
  • Getting into your account won't give anyone access to your IP address. Those are stored server-side, so they'd need to hack the server, not just a random account.
  • There's not much you can do with an IP address, anyway. For instance, my IP address is 181.167.194.111 (yes, it's real, ask the mods if you don't believe me). This is what you can find from my IP: click here. Notice that you cannot find any personal info. (Don't be scared by the presence of a map. That doesn't point to your home address -- the average inaccuracy is 20 kilometers in urban areas, and 50 in rural ones. The location it shows for me is around 15km away from my home. The postal code is also incorrect.)
  • All credit card transactions are legally required to follow certain online security standards. That means your credit card info will not be stored for anyone to take just like that. Companies called "credit card payment processors" are the only companies allowed to actually charge your credit card (service providers, like this game, use their services to charge you), and CC payment processors won't store your credit card number where anyone can pick it up.
  • If someone finds your credit card info, it's because you gave it to them. Enter it on the wrong site, on a site that looks real but it isn't, there's plenty of ways -- but in the end, it all boils down to you sending your CC number to the wrong person.
  • Nothing can be found having just an IP. You cannot impersonate someone by having their IP, either. This is just because of how the IP protocol works -- the explanation is really too technical to write here (if you really want to read the technical stuff, look up a document called RFC 791, you'll find it quickly by googling), but essentially, if they stole your IP they wouldn't be able to connect anywhere. Basically, your IP is not a gateway for hackers to enter.
  • IPs are public anyway. Every single website you visit, every single page you visit, anything online you use, sees and records your IP. Don't think it's a private bit of information, because it's far from it.

I really hope some things are clearer now, because for what I see, there's always a lot of confusion about what you can and cannot do with an IP and such.

You were banned because an unauthorised payment was made on your account. Your explanation for this is that you allowed someone onto your account to buy the credits for you. This is exactly why we tell people not to share accounts because you never know who is going to access your account and it can lead to things like this happening and your account getting banned.

We act strongly in cases of PayPal fraud because fighting this kind of behaviour costs us time and money (which could both be better spent working on improving the game!), not to mention that fact that it is stealing and of course illegal.

thank you, boss.

@half demon dawg

thank you, brah. but that's why people pretty much ignored it.

Given the circumstances of your previous ban which started this whole thread, your name is absolutely hilarious.
