How to Recover a Stolen RuneScape Account

Have you worked on an account for years and you woke up one morning, sadly finding out that it was stolen. Well you can easily recover it.

You must have been the original creator of the account for this to work.

All you need to do is go to the account management section on the runescape site and go to password recovery.  Click the password was stolen option.

Copy this into it, though read the things in the square brackets:

Hello.  I have been working on my account for quite a while [you can put in the length of time if you want] and had the misfortune of having my account stolen.  To prove that I am the original owner I can give you my ip which is [INSERT IP HERE], my internet service provider which is [INSERT INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER], and it was created around [GIVE GENERAL TIME FRAME OF WHEN IT WAS CREATED].  Thank you very much, I don’t know how this happened.  I am scanning my computer for viruses right now.

[INSERT IP HERE]: go to and copy the ip address and insert it into this spot

[INSERT INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER]: you should know this, it could be bellsouth, road runner, cox, etc.  If you don’t know just ask your parents.

[GIVE GENERAL TIME FRAME OF WHEN IT WAS CREATED]: Just say around when it was created, the month and year it was created.

If you want you can add in details about the account like the stats, which may help, though it isn’t guaranteed.

If you provide them with all of this information, and it is all true, you should easily get your account back.

    Didn’t work for me :( I entered the 3 previous passwords, my security questions, Service provider, I even put my previous character names… but just a few days ago my account got hacked and I got it back no problem, and now I entered the same info I did before plus even more! I tried 6 times today! Denied every time :’(
