Vuurballeke hacked, avoid until settled.

Vuurballeke's pirate has been hacked. Please don't purchase items from his pirate and if you can avoid his poker table (I watched earlier and he just threw all in preflop every single hand) please do so.

Evidence is thus: I gunned for the real Vuur during the Bipolar - Dies Irae blockades while he was on a different account/pirate. Asked him if there was any way to get his main pirate back and he said if I saw it online to jump on it.
 
Ye told Vuurballeke, "Yo"
Vuurballeke is playing poker and might be too busy to respond.
Vuurballeke tells ye, "hey"
Ye told Vuurballeke, "What's up"
Vuurballeke is playing poker and might be too busy to respond.
Vuurballeke tells ye, "nm"
Ye told Vuurballeke, "Didn't see you at the blocky :("

Ye told Vuurballeke, "I thought for sure you would havebeen there, there were good navvers needed"

Ye hop on the ferry and are whisked away to Alpha Island...
Vuurballeke tells ye, "where? :)"
Ye told Vuurballeke, "At the blockades"
Vuurballeke is playing poker and might be too busy to respond.
Vuurballeke tells ye, "tell me where and i can hop on"
Ye told Vuurballeke, "No, they were before"

Ye told Vuurballeke, "Turtle, Cranberry, Eta, Jorvik and Spring"
Vuurballeke is playing poker and might be too busy to respond.
Vuurballeke tells ye, "ah i see"
Ye told Vuurballeke, "Yeah where were you man"
Vuurballeke is playing poker and might be too busy to respond.
Vuurballeke tells ye, "been busy"
Ye told Vuurballeke, "Ah."
Vuurballeke is playing poker and might be too busy to respond.

Petition opened, sat on the poker table and sent out /tells it wasn't really him, recruited some help from other pirates to monitor him, sat in the Emerald arch and watched him run around various tailors there, stopped a transaction between him and another pirate with the help of a higher officer in that crew, and then he logged off; petition closed.

Support Response: Thanks for this info. We'll monitor this situation.

That's all I have, I hope it gets settled soon.

Re: Vuurballeke hacked, avoid until settled.

Yep, was on his poker table, all in, all in , all in. Not a word. However we were all telling them that we knew he wasn't vuur. So the person knows there busted. However its just a messy situation. Just wonder why the real vuur can't just go by email to change his password? However this may be more delicate than it seems.

Nasty stuff. It looks like he hasn't logged in since ~1 hour after the petition was submitted, so his account may be locked for now which would be the best thing for him.

Good luck getting it settled.

Re: Vuurballeke hacked, avoid until settled.

To my knowledge, Vuur's email was also hacked. I know he's working with support to get this worked out, I just hope it's soon.

Re: Vuurballeke hacked, avoid until settled.

I'm not really understanding what's going on here. In every past case I've been aware of, the pirate has been locked down and locked out from the moment OOO was informed of the problem, until real life confirmation of identity could be provided to the company through out of game means. But Vuur's pirate was online yesterday. I'm quite confused.

Re: Vuurballeke hacked, avoid until settled.

No idea why it isn't being locked down right away, but he's not the only pirate of recent who's been hacked (though, to my understanding, all of those pirates have been recovered).

If anyone has a way of contacting the real Vuur out of game please do so, I have no means of doing it and would like an update from his end.

Re: Vuurballeke hacked, avoid until settled.

I talk with Vuur on Skype regularly, but sadly I don't have any new information to share on getting his pirates recovered.

Re: Vuurballeke hacked, avoid until settled.

I wondered how come he suddenly showed up on the Malachite Crew list as active.

Seems they must have raided that too. Haven't seen him there in years!
Sad , it was not him.
