    How to "fully" secure a new main for yourself?

    So... thanks to the awesome @Reese, I got a great new main for a more than fair price. I've gone through the whole process of securing it from the inside; I changed all relevant information, pulled little strings here and there to make it seem that I'm the "original owner," and so far the actual owner themself hasn't come seeking the account. Most of their NF are already inactive, everything's going great, etc. Buuut, one of their (close?) VIP friends does continue to log on at least once a day. She stays online for 30 minutes at the max, but she still checks up on Neopets daily nonetheless.

    A scenario came into my mind, however unlikely.

    Say you secured somebody's main like this. Their good friend SOMEHOW figures out that you're not the true owner. They might get a bunch of their own friends and perhaps even the orig. owner to report you and that your account is not yours. But they have nothing in regards to the "account information" and pretty much all they have are accusations.

    Would that still be enough to get you frozen? (I'm guessing probably, but still you have enough information to retrieve the account, if not, keep it away from the orig. owner forever.)

    Could you possibly report them for "false accusation/harrassment"?

    Just some thoughts Inputs would be great

    You can report them as harrasment but your fucked either way

    All it takes is one person to alert you through the boards.

    Even if you dont get iced with the initial board, your reputation is pretty much shot. You can never post in the board again ones this happen. Just pray the owner dont come back and no nf of the person notices its you who is in the account.

    Er it seems to me that that person hadn't neomailed you or accused you outright.

    Just ignore them if they don't bother you.

    Delete them off the list if you'd like and add other "neofriends" which are actually your side accounts and what not to vouch for you when you get frozen.

    But to fully secure it would mean you would have to win a ticket after getting the account frozen for safety reasons.

    I guess they can ban you for not being the original owner but if the original owner doesn't step forward to claim the account, it shouldn't be a problem as long as you have al the account info.

    @underworld @Evelsaint

    Thanks for the responses guys ^_^ Luckily for me, I stay away from the general chat boards. Also, the original owner and most of the people on her friends list (almost all inactive, and some frozen) were of the Australian timezone. So even if I did post now and then chances are slim that I'd run into anyone who recognizes the account. Even luckier, the account is hardly known. And yes the person who I'm concerned of, I'm 99% sure, hasn't even realized that the account is again active. I'm set to Stealth mode and it seems she doesn't bother to check up on the UL of an inactive NF.

    I considered deleting this person off my list, but then realized that they might have been very good friends and that it would not be wise. Besides I actually feel a ton safer just knowing when they are online, so I know to look out.
