Given the real-world value of RuneScape's in-game currency, naturally, players with particularly large amounts of coins jealously guard their hordes against theft. They use tools like authenticators, security questions, and in-game bank pins to runescape mobile gold protect their accounts.

In what RuneScape development studio Jagex calls a "gross misuse of moderator privileges," an employee named Jed Sanderson allegedly swiped "wealth and items" worth roughly 100 billion in-game coins from players, which equates to around $100,000 if sold on third-party websites.

As an off-and-on RuneScape player of almost 15 years myself, I'm pleased to see that Jagex handled the situation so well. They could have very easily refused to restore players' lost gold and items, as MMO developers often do.

Jagex has fired a moderator who reportedly stole billions of gold from players of Old School Runescape.It appears that a former Jagex employee has stolen rather a lot of in-game-currency from several players of the long-running MMORPG Runescape, with the news confirmed late last week by the developer.

According to an official statement released by the Cambridge-based studio, an employee from the Old School team was dismissed from their position while a more detailed investigation, this time in cooperation with the police, is in full swing.
