Dec 31st 2008 2:14PM I have a couple problems with this story. Blizzard allowed it because they don’t assume every transfer is a hack. His credit card was "stolen" as well; they do not allow you to charge the same credit card the billing is on. You need to manually enter the card number and information again. People change servers all the time, taking all the gold with them from alts. The e-mail is also not a fault of blizzard "not sending one". The e-mail was breeched to. E-mail was deleted to cover the transfer. Only takes 30 min or so to transfer a character.
How do I know? Same story happened to me. All of it. I still play. Blizzard worked it out. I have a BlizzCon authenticator I was not using until this mess. Use it now I do. Say what you will about Blizzard, they are not boosting sales here for Authenticators.
Dec 31st 2008 2:01PM Problem with e-mailing it to yourself is what if your e-mail is compromised to? Key logging allows all kinds of information to pass between clients. Speaking from experience, chances are good if you have been key logged, they have more information than just your wow account. My particular nightmare included having my e-mail compromised, and the transfer requests deleted as I tried everything to get control of my account.
