PlayOnline: Valentione's Day!
Posted by: Cuer - Thu Feb 10th, 2005 04:14 pm EST
Feb. 10, 2005 07:00 [PST]

Valentione's Day!

It's here! It's here! The day we've all been waiting for is finally here, kupo! What day is that, you ask? Why, Valentione's Day, of course!

With either cries of gratitude or whispers of hidden love, now's the time for you to step up and open your heart! And what a better way to say "I love you" than with a one-of-a-kind present crafted with your own two hands, kupo?

Huh? You're not sure what would make the perfect gift? Well, don't fret, because the Moogles of the Mog House Management Union (MHMU) recently gathered and decided we'd do our best to help our masters out, kupo! Soon, we'll be sending a special crystal to the delivery box of every adventurer in Vana'diel. By using this crystal during synthesis, you'll be able to carve your name right into the finished product, kupo!

Once you've done that, all that's left is for you to take your gift to that "special someone," and let your heart do the rest, kupo!

About items sent from the Mog House Management Union (MHMU)
- The moogles are sending a special crystal to each adventurer. It may take time for the special crystals to arrive, so please be patient.

- The Mog House Management Union (MHMU) will send special crystals only to characters created before Feb. 4 2005.

Warning Regarding PlayOnline ID and Password Frauds

It has come to our attention that some individuals are contacting FINAL FANTASY XI players in-game and referring them to fake websites resembling the official PlayOnline.com (http://www.playonline.com/) site. These sites ask the player to enter their PlayOnline ID and password at the fake website, with the intent of stealing items belonging to the player's character or characters.

We have permanently removed the PlayOnline membership of these players who are responsible for hosting such websites to the attention of the proper authorities, requested further investigation on this issue with the help of the public organization, and have also shut down these sites to protect the FINAL FANTASY XI community.

Please do not become a victim of "phishing." DO NOT disclose your PlayOnline ID or password to anyone other than the official PlayOnline.com (http://www.playonline.com/) website.

*The only exception is when dealing directly with a PlayOnline Information Center representative via the PlayOnline Service & Support Web Chat system. You may be asked for your PlayOnline ID or registration code in such cases.

Also note that no Square Enix representative (Game Master (GM) staff included) will ever ask you to provide your ID or Password from within a game or via e-mail. If you have experienced such issues, please contact our Information Center or the Game Masters (GM) for further consultations.

Keep your data safe! Keep your PlayOnline ID and Password secure!
