    AND to top it off, the account was purchased from a fellow OTer, who purchased the account back in the day...but he doesn't know the secret question.

    my friend was hammered, and has no idea what the password is.

    Does ANYONE know of anyway I can get this back? :wtc:
    Everything else on the account matches me...my address, name, number, email etc. I just want to be able to play WoW again with my friends.

    12 year olds can figure this out and you can't? Go to forgot password under the login section, and type in your secret answer, and email. It will send a new password to your email address.

    So i'm confused if this account is originally yours and is in your name, then how the fuck did you forget the secret answer? And if it was purchased, then how is it under your name?

    Agreed.. I was always under the impression blizzard will NOT let you change the original name on the account, EVER.

    How is this under your name if it's been purchased on two separate occasions?

    the part about the name matching on your account is pretty suspicious

    what don't you guys get?

    Person a made the account
    She sold it to person b
    Person b played it for 3 years ( and he is an oter) and then sold it to me.

    The name is still person a's name. But It is in my address and my email.

    This is what you said in your original post. Don't expect help when you don't give us what we need to know. Basically your fucked unless Person A gets that info back for you.

    OH GOD AN APOSTROPHE.


    To threadstarter, I've heard of people photoshopping their names onto the ID to get an account back successfully. But I assume you would need to have the original email or something, not sure what you would need. I would look into something like that if you can't get a hold of the original account creator.

    Maybe this will teach you to NEVER EVER buy an account from another person. Get your own and keep it always for yourself.

    You can call Blizzard and they can restore it for you.

    He was hammered, figured out how to change your password, yet was too drunk to remember it?

    Let me translate.

    "I sold my account a while back and I want to fuck the guy who bought it, so I can play again, anyone want to help?"
