"He just HAPPENED to know that the guy was power-leveling JCing, he just HAPPENED to know that they had a son (as opposed to a daughter or childless) who was school-aged and who was trusted enough to just be all "oh, btw, not coming home after school today, kthxbai". He just HAPPENED to be able to type with the exact same inflection, grammar, overall personality of this gal's husband, to the point that she never thought something might be up?"Incorrect. You can find that out easily by looking at what's in the bank, what professions are (using armory you can see the professions and what level its at) and an 80 with jewelcrafting at, say 197, and say, mining, at 450... well... to me that'd look like someone dropped another profession and picked up jewelcrafting.As for talking about their son, I may have made it unclear but she told HIM their son was going to a friend's house. I don't know the exact wording but think something like:"Billy is going to Jim's house after school so you don't need to pick him up." Or whatever.And just because typing is the same means nothing. A lot of people out there use proper grammar or spell correctly. Others use things like 'u' and 'ur.' Through text it's hard to tell if the person on the other end speaks English fluently or not.I can type full conversations in one of three languages. That doesn't mean that I am native to that language, but rather that I studied it. I have met many Chinese individuals who have very thick accents, have a hard time saying many words, but when typing, it's flawless. And as for him giving his info to someone else, again, I don't know what happened, and neither does he, but I suspect he got caught by one of the misspelling searches or something and his account was keylogged. An intelligent hacker would look at what the account has to offer, and seeing he was an officer in a guild, the guildbank had epic gems and a lot of other things, even gold, see that in the character's own bags were gems both cut and uncut and not-maxed jewelcrafting, and seeing the GM is on, whispering going:"Hey, can you get me some of the gems out of the guild bank? I've used my max withdrawals.""Sure honey, oh and Billy is going to Jim's after school so you don't need to pick him up.""Okay. Oh and can I borrow some gold to pay for training jc?""Sure""By the way I bought us some authenticators and they arrived this morning. What's your password so I can add yours?""Ok it's email@example.com blahworld""Thanks."It doesn't need to be "can i has ur pw plzktnxbai" to be a hacker.And again, the character contacted others on the friends list asking for the same loan for training. I don't know how much they actually got, but yeah.
