Today has been a HUGE headache. Somehow, my PSN account was breached today, my account stolen, where it was used to mess with my in-game clan and now I come to find, wipe my stats. My COD account was never breached. Only my PSN.
I was Max Prestige, with 20 days played and over 100,000 kills total. I also run a Clan, Level 25 with 7 Diamond Wins, ranked in the Top 50 on the Diamond Leaderboard.
After much hassle I was able to finally get back my PSN, change passwords, and have complete control over it again. I luckily managed to fix my in-game clan BUT my Call of Duty user account is showing ZERO everything. Rank 1, zero time played, zero KD, everything. I'm guessing that this is more than user triggered stat reset because it shows ZERO time played.
I've been playing on this SAME account in EVERY COD for 7 years now! I've NEVER had my stats wiped or have an issue in the past. Never have cheated, boosted, or anything like that. I even run a clan/community where I'm proud to have a Zero Tolerance Policy against any of that type behavior for my members.
Is there anything I can do to restore my stats? I was gonna try chat support but its not live for another 12+ hours.
Thanks for any help!
Also, all my leaderboard stats are still intact. On the COD app, it successfully shows how much time I have played, but a 0.0 KD.
Sure hope there is a fix for this! This is much more than just an account/game to me. I use this account run a community of 100+ members and losing my stats on this account will seriously hurt.
Only thing I've seen like this is a prestige hack. I wont say how its done, but if someone got your PSN credentials, they could have easily copied your prestige to another account, leaving you at zero. I dont know if that would also reset your time played, but I suspect this is what happened to you.
I believe, it may be possible to restore your account, but I wouldn't know how.
BTW, if youve ever seen a player in a lobby with a grey box in place of their prestige symbol, THAT is a hacked prestige. It will only be a matter of time before the idiot that bought your stats will see his prestige symbol change, then EVERYONE will be reporting him, and the hammer will come down on him. Unfortunateley, though, you may still be SOL.
If I were you, I'd get in touch with Activision support by phone.
Thanks for the response.
Still confused as to how all this happened. I was targeted by the hacker because of a new member that joined yesterday, guess there's an ongoing issue between this hacker and the person who joined yesterday. So this hacker retaliated against my entire community aka me, the leaders account and changed our in-game clan around, demoting me and my lts, putting himself as leader, and changing our motto to his twitter page.
The only reason I got my PSN/clan back was after I contacted him via the twitter link, he felt bad he targeted us when we had no knowledge of this new members supposed history and personally handed it back over to me and apologized. Which was nice on his part but the damage was done and I've spent the last 5+ hours trying to fix it.
He never got into my COD account, just my PSN, and my password was super complicated. Still no clue how he got in, no way he guessed my password. On my PSN, some how my "gender" was changed, which is impossible unless you have support change it for you. Its something like your username where you can't change it once you sign up. So no clue what the heck else he was able to do/change. Guessing he had to "connect" my PSN to another COD account in-order to do all he did. So no clue what happened or how to even prove this to COD support.
Anyways, is COD Phone Support 24/7? I tried looking all over for a phone number with no luck. Only could find a chat area that is not open until for another like 12 hours. Kinda going crazy here trying to fix everything. Put A LOT of work into my community and thought I was well protected with super crazy complicated passwords for everything. This whole thing is just a nightmare.
If you check out our site, you can tell we're not just a small in-game only COD clan, working to build into something more, and this event today almost took us down. http://www.1vs7gaming.com/
For him to have done all that he was a true hacker, I think.
I've been to your site, and even recommended it in my strategy guide.
Personally, though I dont know you, I believe your story.
To contact Activision support by phone, you must have a support case first. To start a case, go to the support section on the top left of the page and go through the process untill you see the "contact us" option.
You can also start a case by contacting support via twitter @ATVIAssist
Once your case is started, you will be able to view it in "my support", "my cases". It will have a case number you will need to reference when calling by phone, and a phone number to call will be shown.
Unfortunately, cases like yours are rare, so I wouldnt be surpised if they send you a reply that doesnt apply to your particular situation. Be prepared to provide evidence. To bring them up to speed, you might want to reference this thread.
Hopefully a support mod can help. Calling in: SavageHam
Best of luck
Thats sucks dude, hope you get it sorted.
Thanks for the info! Means a lot you believe me. Appreciate the vote of confidence and honored you linked back to one of the guides I put together for my community. Can't tell ya how much this sucks, after sinking so much time to have it all endangered like this for no reason at all other than allowing someone to join my community, sucks. No one deserves this.
Think I will really need that luck, feels like it will be an uphill battle to get anything done to restore my stats.
Will give it a shot right now. When I tried it before, it only gave me an option to chat. Hopefully I have more luck this time.
And any help Savage would be appreciated dude!
Just tried several different options via the Support, they all only give me an option to chat or go to support forums. No way to start a case or ticket. Any help would be appreciated! I saw in a few other threads a mod can create one, so guess I need to wait?
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks again!
I just checked there too, and the ability to create your own case no longer exsists. At least not the way I did a week ago.
You will need a support mod to create a case for you, or @ATVIAssist twitter. Chat support may be able to as well.
I think twitter would be your best option.
Check your inbox in a bit. I'll send you the phone support number.
Also, the second time I logged into support, I got a different page, the one with "my cases"... It wasn't there when I had checked earlier. Weird..
