EA Employee Accused Of Stealing Apex Legends
Electronic Arts have always been known to be one of the best publishers of games. But recently in a ranked EU server, an exchange took place. Over there an Apex Legends player was seen accusing an EA employer of stealing that player’s account. The account has several costly things and was well built. Predator badges to Heirlooms, nothing was short in the account. The player added that the thief was after the account due to all the possessions. The thief had been constantly shuffling the password and email address to make sure that the account is locked. The player was not idle and immediately contacted EA support to take a look into the matter.
Reaction Of The Player After Getting The Account Back
The player appeared in an interview and has confirmed that he has got back his account. The player is named Karan Khushalani. In the words of Karan, he contacted EA support, and luckily they recovered his account. At first, it felt weird as the thief worked in that same company. After getting back the account, he is relieved and is claiming to be in the middle of recovering from the trauma. Within two days, he had to memorize at least seven resets. For those of you who do not know, every time a player changes the email, the game sends a message which contacts a link that changes the pass. After that, the account reactivates.
When the thief stole the account, there was no confirmation email coming to the player. Even when he kept on changing the mail, there was no confirmation, and the Two-Factor-Authentication codes were also missing. Karan’s doubt about the thief being from EA was confirmed when the thief added him back on discord. Yaman was the EA support staff with whom Karan contacted. No one outside the two could know about that unless that person was working for the company. After all this, another supportive staff named Xar passed the details of the conversation between the thief and Karan to senior staff. It was after seeing it that the senior staff decided that the issue was more serious and was a case of an employee misusing his power.
Other Similar Incidents
Karan has confirmed that it was not only his account that was stolen. He has a friend who also had their account stolen. Like his own, that account also had Heirlooms. Apart from this incident, there have been ten other similar incidents that have been reported on the internet. From being an isolated incident, it is becoming more of a global problem for Apex Legends players.
If this continues, sooner or later, the game is going to lose several players from their community, and it would create a bad name for the game as well as the company. The support staff uses codenames instead of real names, so it is difficult to track them down. If it was not for Xar, Karan could never find the real culprit.
