My 5 characters have been naked, lost 4 ex pure + currency and a Kaom's Heart. I spoke with GGG with some email, they can do something to recover your account but not for your stuff. Same happened to me, sorry for you.

So sad to have to say goodbye this game by this way. I lost all my current gears with 6L armour and bla bla :((. With 20 pure ex and all others currency . My feeling now is damn bad :((((. I dont want to blame to GGG but next time when somthing like this happened you should sent a notification for all account or warning at homepage T______________T. Sadest day ever! Sorry for @Orochi too :(

Guys, helpful tip:

Nearly always, legit messages are going to be better formatted and spelled than that. It is totally worth practicing proofreading so you can spot things like that, because they're a pretty good sign of likely scams.
