I have some questions about what kind of rights the victims have.

  1. Does victims from the insider hijackings have a right to get a refund as Jagex have claimed to refund / have refunded any players affected.
  2. What rights do competition winners have in regards to get their prize from Jagex?
  3. Is their response to this incident enough to comply with GDPR? Posted Sep 20 2018.

  1. Does the victims have a right to know what information that was leaked about them?

  2. Anything else they have right to?

Jagex is based in Cambridge UK

TLDR.

Players had their information stolen including CC information from one or more employees in Jagex.

Detailed thread about what information that was leaked.

The total value stolen from players is unknown, but from refunds on reddit there is a value over $400,000.

That is only from victims that posted on reddit and decided to share their refund on reddit.

The total is estimated much much higher, including information that is not made public by Jagex.

(hijacks were done through standard recovery and only some victims got refunded as there was no way of knowing who was a victim)

/u/mazrim_lol was one of the victims. He was complaining for over 4 months in the OSRS subreddit over losing wealth worth over $30,000. All he was told is that he had his information compromised by the Runescape moderators.

They replied /u/mazrim_lol with '' It does look like you've had a serious amount of information compromised. ''

/u/mazrim_lol had to make another post to finally get his refund with thousands of upvotes.

Another victim with information including CC information stolen and was not getting a refund before his reddit post got big.

Another victim /u/ucandoitBFX that had to keep posting on social media to try and get his refund.

Jagex had investigated the employee ''thoroughly'' and found no evidence while people accused him of DDOSING in their DMM tournaments (Jagex esports tournament) for the $20K prize multiple times.

Jagex got a history of not paying prizes to winners for YEARS and you need multiple frontpage reddit posts to actually get a response on issues like this. Examples on that:

https://old.reddit.com/r/2007scape/comments/9fijdp/update_2_months_since_jmod_promised_to_send_out/

https://old.reddit.com/r/2007scape/comments/8weqht/havent_received_my_rewards_for_king_of_the_skill/

20K upvotes of someone not getting paid for their WORK they have done for Jagex.

Most give up and are not getting their prizes. What is the best thing they can do here?
