: If the intruder has access to your email (which is how a decent chunk of accounts get compromised) then a paypal receipt is something they would also have access too. This is why paypal receipts aren't enough on their own. They help your case certainly, but you need a good mix of things to verify ownership. You don't necessarily have to remember details from 8 years ago either, any information that isn't visible on the account works. The questions they give are a guideline and are sufficient for most players, but for some it isn't enough. You want to send them info like dates (even approximate) you purchased skins or champions, that aren't still or have recently been visible in your purchase history. For example maybe you remember buying Surprise Party Fiddlesticks within a day or two of it's release. Any information unique to your account but not visible on it is useful in verifying ownership.
my paypal uses a separate email for security purposes. ive been looking at the account from the outside through OPGG and with this account and it has no activity on it whatsoever, no games have been played and the account never goes online, it could either be compromised and is being advertised for sale? (i actually scoured sites selling accounts to see if i can just buy it back lol, but i but found nothing) or riot just messed up somehow. http://matchhistory.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-history/NA/119767 its last game is from the beginning of this month, the last time i was on the account. > For example maybe you remember buying Surprise Party Fiddlesticks within a day or two of it's release. Any information unique to your account but not visible on it is useful in verifying ownership. i dont mean to brag, but i was awarded that skin because i contributed to its creation lol http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=883477, this archived thread is the one that sparked its creation and you can see all the contributors, which riot eventually awarded when the skin came out, but it was under this account which i also created 8 years ago. the one i lost was created to snipe a name, but i ended up using it because i like the name so much. it later became somewhat rare because riot didnt permit people to use mild swears as names (the other accounts name is Fizzbitch lol), but i think they rescinded that later down the line.

: Hey summoner, I think we've got a decent shot of getting your account back, but I'm going to need you to do a few things first: + Can you get me the ticket ID for your support ticket? That way I can hopefully get someone to look into it a bit more closely. + Have you double-checked all the other sites and services (e.g PayPal) that might have used that email? It's possible that when you login there'll be a way to see it. Maybe friends have sent you email? Ask them to check if they have. Also, my bet would be that PayPal transaction ID is not enough information. There's an official account recovery process but you need to know a lot of info about your account (e.g creation date, first 10 purchased champions, first 5 skins purchased), and considering you can't even remember the email I don't think that's a good option just yet.
hey man thanks its, #32556082 my paypal email is separate from all others and is used specifically for paypal only, so i can keep track of whats going on with it and keep the account secure, literally the only thing that email has in it are paypal receipts. in my conversation with riot support i gave them my paypal email so they can send a quick message to it and i can reply back to confirm that its me, i haven't got a message from them about that yet, if one of your guys can get a hold of me via the email i used to issue the support ticket then ill hand it over, sorry if this seems shady but i dont want to post my emails (especially this one) on a public forum
