This happened with a guild member recently too, first we knew about it was him spamming trade trying to sell the tiger mount and requesting a large sum of money out of the guild bank. We contacted the real owner immediatly and he can't put his finger on how his account was jacked.To make matters worse, when he tried to log back into his account, they had attached an authenticator to the account, royally screwing him over

Attaching an authenticator? That's just low.Of course you know what the real lesson in this is? Blizzard needs to stop offering out of game methods to get in-game items. If all the TCG items were available from rep factions or whatever in-game, you'd never see Spectral Tiger scams or whatever.

#rogueOr you could make them purchasable via blizzard's store.

But if you did that Verit, you'd see scams where people would be selling them for cheaper than Blizz store, luring people in yet again.

Oh please, this had nothing to do with Blizzard offering in-game items out of game and everything to do with someone being too dim to have proper safety precautions in place. All he would have had to do was look at his damned address bar before entering his info, AND furthermore he should have had some sort of Malware protection in place against that keylogger.

@ rogue's second comment. If you bought via the online store they would be linked directly to your account (ie. soulbound to your account from the moment your money clears) so the fear of re-selling (and thus scamming) is eliminated.
