HI Neko,

You don't say how this person got your Lindens. If you believe your account was hacked, immediately change your password and file a support case here...

https://support.secondlife.com/create-case/

Select "Account Issue" and then "I believe my account has been compromised". Provide additional information in the spaces provided.

If you clicked on an object, received a notification pop-up asking permission to access your Linden balance, and accepted it, there's really nothing that can be done. At that point, this becomes a resident-to-resident dispute and Linden Lab does not get involved in those.

You must be very wary about object requests for L$ permissions.

Good luck!

The most likely cause of this is phishing.  Here is how that works.

You get a link from someone, in chat or group chat or an IM.  You clicked on it, and you see a web page that appears to be a normal Second Life sign in page.  But it's not...it's a fake page set up by a scammer.

You enter your user name and password.

Now the scammer knows your login information, and can sign in to your account.  He can change your password, take all your $L, or use your account to send out phishing links to all your friends and groups.

Don't browse directly to links you get in chat or IM.  Open your web browser and go to the SL sign in page manually!  Or, if you DO click a link someone gives you, read its address carefully.  Legitimate links to the Second Life web pages will have the prefix https://, with an S on the end, and the domain secondlife.com.  Beware of links that are close, but not exact, like say secondlife.ru, or s3condlife.com.
