How to Hack Neopets

When I was 12 I stole Neopets accounts.

Here’s how:

  1. I built a free survey with questions “Name 1 item you want” and pre-requisites “You must have a minimum of 10k Neopoints with a level 30 pet.”
  2. Posted the link on forums with language “My best friend just showed me this crazy cheat code!!”
  3. The last question asked “What is your Neopets username / password?” and noted “After submission, do not access your account for 24 hours.”

Survey answers came to my business email, [email protected]

I logged into the accounts, liquidated assets, and wired the Neopoints to my master profile.

My brother was in on it too.

And that was my first racket.
