TiffanyHayden Posted May 12, 2017 Share Posted May 12, 2017 (edited) I never migrated my RT accounts. I thought (incorrectly) that they were essentially in cold storage otherwise. In the past, I attempted to create an account with Gatehub, but abandoned the idea when I got to the part where documents were required in order to verify ID (I don't have proof of a permanent address). Last night, I decided to try again after reading @cmbartley's article explaining that Gatehub can also act as an interface to Ripple wallets. I couldn't remember the password for Gatehub from my previous attempt so I started fresh. I didn't realize that you could still migrate old RT accounts with just a user name and password (no secret key required). After successfully migrating a few accounts, I was looking through some of the activity and noticed there was an old RT account that I didn't realize I had sent more than the minimum amount of XRP required. Not a ton. Just 1,000 XRP. I was probably planning on being a goofball with them. The address was named VladimirPutin. So, I go to migrate the VladimirPutin account on GateHub and it says that it's already been migrated. I look it up on RippleCharts and a week ago the 1,000 XRP were sent somewhere else. A week ago I also received 3 different texts from 3 different numbers with a message about my "Ripple Code." These messages looked just like the ones I received from Gatehub last night. My phone number is pretty new and not many people have it. I never use my phone number when signing up for 2FA (and I didn't sign up for 2FA on Gatehub last night, but I did give them my number which ended up being used for 2FA anyway, for some reason). I finally figured out the password to my first Gatehub account I created and it had my old number listed. I'm confused about what happened to the VladimirPutin account. Is there another way to migrate RT accounts other than through Gatehub? If somebody used Gatehub to migrate my VladimirPutin account for me, does that mean that they also have my new phone number? (Everything has been moved to cold storage.) Edited May 12, 2017 by TiffanyHayden Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
