Okay, long story short, my friend decided to buy this game used from someone and now (gasp, surprise!) the account password has mysteriously changed and the e-mail address it was registered to has also changed!

I'm pretty sure it's just next to impossible for any sort of solution to end in my friend's favor, but I thought I'd come by and ask anyways. What should we do?

pretty sure the only course of action is to buy a new copy, sorry :(

He bought a used, online-only, PC game? o_O

Well, at least everyone learned a lesson today. The good news is that a new copy isn't terribly expensive.

Sounds to me like what he bought was the "account". Hense the "password" being changed. Still foolish none-the-less.

lol lesson to learn here? That lesson was taught years ago. Everyone here I'm sure is smart enough to not buy a used pc game or an account.

How Shameful.

I guess this is what left me confused:

Your friend can try calling Square Enix's customer support. I'm not sure whether they'll be able or willing to help, but it probably can't hurt.
