This "friend" of hers asked her to vote on a badge he had just made, she was going to help him out like any friend would. From what he told her told to do was to go on some site she think it was called imvu89 or something to vote, when she did her viruses protection came up and said it was a phishing site When she said that to him, within a blink of an eye she was booted and blocked. Odd way to act when a friend is telling you something. I checked up on him has two accounts, one was just made 2 days ago. I told her to write his name down, which she has done. She just doesn't want this scum bag to rip people off.


I just got booted from my own room o I think this guy has hacked me some how. please help.

It's too late to report him. You have to report such chats while they are happening.

Anyone asking for a vote on a badge is a scammer. If you click, it takes you to a fake login page. If you log in there, your account is lost.

Should you lose your account, file a help ticket and you can get it back.

edit - there is no way to check on someone to find out how many accounts they have. Even mods can't do that. If you used a third party site that has some kind of app, then yes, you may have been hacked by that site. Change your password asap.
