Original story: Players of MMO ArcheAge have reported unauthorised transactions of $150 USD on their accounts, charged to them without permission by publisher Trion Worlds.

Numerous players on the ArcheAge forums have detailed automatic credit card and PayPal charges for the $150 Archeum founder's pack. Some players even report having never played or even heard of ArcheAge, but still being charged because they had previously played other Trion games such as Rift or Defiance.

This almost happened to me. I received an email from Trion stating that the gift of the Archeum Founders pack ($150) did not go through. I had my debit card saved in my account. I thought the e-mail was a fake and perhaps a phishing scam because I had the funds in my account so I don't know why it declined. I usually only keep enough money in that account for automatic bill pay so maybe I lucked out and a bill cleared before this attempt because the email stated that I didn't get charged. Then I began to worry that multiple "gifts" were purchased and that perhaps only this one declined. I did not use the links in the email. I went directly to the Trion website. I checked my Trion Account Transaction History to verify. I immediately changed my password and removed my card information from my Trion account and I have now added the Glyph Authenticator.

The hackers are accessing individual Trion accounts looking for any with a valid form of payment attached, and then gifting the ArcheAge Founder's Packs to themselves.

I highly recommend anyone with a Trion account (ArcheAge, Rift, Defiance, Trove, etc.) to add the Glyph Authenticator to their account:

More stories of this happening are posted on the ArcheAge reddit here:

ArcheAge (& Trion) have stated that "Trion Worlds' security has not been compromised in any way," and that "all players affected by fraudulent charges will be automatically refunded within the next few hours today." LINK:

E-mail I received from Trion:

I also got this email, and it startled me enough that I removed payment methods and changes passwords and the works. This is... annoying, since I haven't played any Trion games at all in probably over a year.

adidas NMD CS2 “Core Black” Adds Blue And Orange Detailing.The adidas NMD CS2 will don a new take on the classic Adidas Yeezy Boost “Core Black” colorway later this month. While this new look may seem like a doppelganger of the “Core Black”, what separates it from that previous release Nmd R2 is the inclusion of blue striping on the medial side and orange coloring on the midsole bumpers and outsole. The new colorway may come as a Nmd Xr1 crowd-pleaser to those looking to rock the clean “Core Black” look but also have a touch of originality and color. This adidas NMD City Sock 2 Harden Vol.1 will release just before Christmas on December 21st on and from adidas stockists for $180 (some spots have already released these early). Check out the Human Race Nmd new detailing in the photos below.
We, like you, have been patiently waiting on more information regarding Japanese boutique NEIGHBORHOOD‘s take on the adidas NMD. From Addidas Nmd early previews, the shoe showcased an aggressive Adidas Ultra Boost change of pace for the brand featuring jagged white shark teeth similar to their 2015 collaboration atop the ZX 500. While there’s still no release info regarding the upcoming collaboration, we do have the best look yet at the Neighborhood adidas NMD. These photos showcase more co-branding Adidas NMD R2 on the heel tab and midsole bumper while the alternate Black Boost tooling is sure to please those of you looking for a change of pace Adidas Shoes 2018 from the Triple Black Ultra Boosts. Will you be grabbing the NBHD NMDs once they release later this year?
