LL asking for alt account & security Q & As

Question

Hi. Last Friday 6.23.17(US). I sent a ticket to get my account reopened. I had made this one, & forgot about it. RL got in the way, & I came back, after awhile with a different account. ANYHOW I got a reply, answered what was needed, got the OK, that the account was reactivated, but, they wanted me to pick a new security Q & A, for safety reasons, so I did. Logged in, still got the account on hold page. Wrote back AGAIN, & got a different linden (I think it said Corky), asking is that the only way to spell the answer?  I said yes. Then read on further & he/she wanted me to list all my alts, & their security Q & As. I had a bad feeling about that, but listed my accounts I CURRENTLY have, & what I think was my Qs. BUT nothing else. Should I be concerned? I have had accounts stolen, in the past, & even harassed off accounts, over the last 8 years. & I've left SL because of that, for months at a time, though I still have things I've passed down over the years, from my first account, as well as boxes of things I've made. Should I wait fot a reply? Should I change my PWs on my accounts? What should I do?

if it's by the ticket system, it's ok.

Seems you made things more complicated by some answers you gave.

So LL needed more info from you, also because they can see strange things on your previous accounts, who are STILL on your name and responsibility when stolen and not reported/closed!

Wait a while and see what support will reply.

Linden Lab can easily see what's in each of your alt accounts, so it sounds as if they are asking you to verify what they probably know already.  Why?  Maybe some of those past incidents you referred to were never fully resolved.  Or maybe one or more of your alts has a name that is similar to another account that has had problems.  As Alwin suggests, you could just wait and see what happens next, if anything. Or you could ask Linden Lab.  It all depends on how nervous or trusting you are, I suppose.

Ah ok. It just seemed fishy to me. Most accounts I've had I've closed. Mostly because they were themed around a certain character, or I had to put numbers in it, or I ws being bullied, stalked, harassed on it. Or I just got tired of it. Or in the case of this one, RL got in the way, & it was forgotten. But yeah I'll wait & see what they say, but, at this point, it doesn't bother me much. I can log in this account now, so worked on rebuilding an avvie last night.
