Help with my Rockstar Games issue
GetHuman-cthistle's next move: find and follow the right step-by-step guide.
Rockstar Games doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-cthistle will need to dig through the advice provided by Rockstar Games, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-cthistle can let us know if they help or not.
Top Tip from another customer
If your email and password are changed on the account then there is no way to recover the account. This company has a very strict policy with recovering accounts and if anything is different then you cannot recover the account. You must have the original email or phone number on the account.
The issue in GetHuman-cthistle's own words
Im trying to get someone at Rockstar to realize that this is bs. I was hacked and cant get my account back, even though i bought the game and played with friends weeks before this happened. Someone hacked my steam and screwed up my social club account and i want it restored if possible. seriously wtf? just because I was hacked you people at rockstar ignore me? I just want to play the game... ... A long time ago I unfortunately had my Steam Account Hacked. I have no idea how or why but whoever it was linked my gta* to his*her email. Since fixing the problem with my account I haven't tried to play gta until now. I decided to get back on the game with some friends but when I went to log in to the social club I received an error. " this steam account is already linked to a different social club. Please log in with that social club account instead". I've only ever used one email and password for GTA* which is why I am assuming something happened while my account was compromised. I don't mind if I lose my progress for online, I just want to be able to log in with my original email address. If there is any way to recover or fix my original account I would appreciate it. Otherwise I guess ill have to make a new email* account and start from the beginning.**I just clicked the option that said " I will not be trying this again" because there is no support for this issue, and it changed my ticket to "fixed" . are you kidding me? someone hacked my steam and somehow screwed up my gta* social club login. doesnt anyone there know how to fix this? i just want my account back. i bought this game long ago and cant play it.
Either recovering*fixing the account tied to MY original email address.
I tried making a new social club account with a different email and received the same error message. So if there's nothing that anyone at Rockstar can do then i guess ill never be able to play this game on pc again. still no response or fix. edit: * days later My post changed to "fixed" . you people are a joke.
