If you checked your transaction history, you should be able to see where your Lindens went to. If it is not any kind of group liabilities you could have been charged for, your account may have been compromised, for example if you fell in some phishing scam.

Your account may have been compromised if:

  • You can't access your account.
  • You suddenly notice a reduced available balance on the payment source you have on file.

If this happens, contact us immediately!

Here's what to do:

  1. Go to the Second LIfe Help page and log in if you can. If you can't access your account, use the Forgot your login information? link on the right to recover your username and reset your password. Then log in.
  2. On the Second LIfe Help page page, click the Contact Support link on the right.
  3. On the next page, click Submit a a Support Case form.
  4. Under What type of problem are you having?, select Account Issue. A second dropdown appears.
  5. Under Account Issue, select I believe my account has been compromised.
  6. Fill in the rest of the fields as directed.
  7. Click Submit.
  8. Check your email for your case number.
  9. Call our fraud number: 800-860-6990.

Once you do this, Linden Lab will place your account on hold and investigate the relevant transactions. This may take a few days. Once we have concluded the investigation, we'll send you an email explaining our conclusion and the action we will take. Note that all transactions involving Linden dollars are subject to Linden Lab's Terms of Service.

Before you jump to the conclusion that someon stole your money, please do look at theTransaction History on your dashboard at secondlife.com >>> Account .  The most common reason for unexpected withdrawals is a group liability.  When you belong to a group in SL, you very often end up sharing the group's costs for advertizing events, listing rental property, etc.  Spread over the entire group, it amounts to pennies a week per person.  If you don't want tp pay, you may either leave the group or ask the group's owner if there is a way to avoid paying your share (unlikely, but it happens).
