    I'm not too worried about keeping the account. I'm willing to lose all my progress but not my items, neopoints, and pets. I need advise on how to extract them all in a short time and hope half of it survives lol
    I'd happily give her the account back if I could figure a safe way to get everything off it that I earned myself.

    If they sound reasonable, it may be worth actually talking to them (not on site)? If they haven't reported and are just talking to you they sound fine...most would report the account and get it iced

    Ask for time to transfer your stuff maybe?

    Dunno tbh, I would be scared if this happened to me.

    Yeah my anxiety is out the roof right now.
    I'm not sure how to lead them offsite to even begin a civil conversation without filters. Or how to even begin to explain the situation without them immediately getting upset/scared and pressing report.
    The last thing I need is to get flagged before I can move my shit.

    [edit]

    And I've been on the other side of this sword so I totally get how she feels. She's being open minded by mailing me in the first place. I've considered sending her a petpage link and posting there to contact me via skype or something.

    Yeah the pets will be the hardest thing. Because she has already seen them. See if she'll talk to you off site

    Personally I would use 'book of face' which gets through the filters. Just say you would like to discuss or something. Then..not sure if honesty is the best route from there or not, but it is no good to be discussing it onsite and a bit risky to just transfer everything now as they may well have noted the pets and be able to track you that way

    Sent her a mail outlining what I felt I could without scaring her off and inviting her to open discussion. We'll see how this goes.
    I had this crazy itch awhile back to buy a new main, too. Guess I should have trusted my gut feeling! This would be a lot easier otherwise.

    Oh wow, that really sucks.

    I would move the items and neopets asap through a few shells and than contact her and hope she is open to let you keep the pets in return for the account.

    Problem may be when she feels you took too much items / np and she tracks you through the pets again and gets everything frozen anyway.

    IF you have an aged Side acct, try setting up trades on THEM and then transfering items that are YOURs to the side acct. Try to load enough Neopoints to relate to what she had to begin with. Then see what transpires. I hope all goes well for you. Please post an update of this situation. So many of us could find ourselves in this same issue.
