Question

  • 0

If an item you rez, or wear, gives you a warning that it is requesting the ability to take $L from you, DO NOT click "Accept".  If you do, the object will take all the $L from your account.

Some objects have a legitimate need to take $L from your account...vendor prims and rental boxes you use in your business, for example, or tip jars that give a percentage of your tips to your employer.  But if you are not expecting this message, don't give an object this permission.

These objects can take $L from you as long as they are rezzed in world.  If you delete the object or detach it, and it is simply in your inventory, it can't harm you.

The object cannot steal your Second Life password.  That happens if you are the victim of a "phishing" scam.

So:  Detach the object, then note its previous owner.  File an Abuse report against the object and its owner.  You might get your stolen $L back, but don't hold your breath on that one.
