Wife Arrested for Deleting Husband

maplestorymarriage.jpg

A lady who married a man virtually in the popular massively multiplayer game MapleStory was so furious at him unilaterally divorcing her that she logged in using his details and deleted him. Police then arrested her for unauthorised access to his account.

The lady, a 43-year-old piano teacher offline, married in the game (to a 33-year-old salaryman), but the marriage apparently suffered difficulties; the husband took it upon himself to unilaterally divorce her.

So spurned, the wife was enraged, and using the login and password her husband had previously told her, logged in to his account, where she deleted him.

Police arrested her some months later on charges of unauthorised access; for her part, she admits to deleting him.

Via Sankei.

MapleStory actually has an in game system for marriages, with various associated quests and buyable enhancements. It is not clear how one can perform a divorce, though the simple expedient of PKing the unwanted spouse seems unlikely…

You will of course immediately notice parallels to a similar previous incident involving a character deletion arrest; it seems Japanese police are the best friend of the MMORPG gamer.

    Lawlz I remember hearing about this =D I thought they arrested her for "illegal manipulation of data."

    Remember kids, never give out your Password/ID.

    This is why password sharing is not a ritual of love, but a dangerous practice.

    *facepalm*

    i don't quite get this story... from what i gather he gave her the password so doesn't that mean he gave her the right to access the account?

    Geez, read everything before you jump to a conclusion. So she got what she deserved.
    And it's his own fault to begin with.

    Some people cry when they are sad.
    Stupid people make me sad because they have no freaking common sense.

    The truth of it even more so. I can't believe you can actually get someone arrested for that. That's half the reason why I quit MMORPGs, cuz some biatch always hacked me.

    .05 seconds after he virtual-divorced her would have been a good time to change his password...

    Correct me if I'm wrong but when you tell someone your password and pin in maple story. According to the ToS you've already broken a rule so haven't you already lost all your rights, for breaking one of the biggest rule, that next to hacking/cheating? Either way common sense would be to change your password ASAP :P

    Agreed, telling your login and password is basically giving permission to log in and manipulate the account. I don't have my roommate's remote desktop password, even though it's my butt and boobs on his security cameras!
