I got an LM-17 error last night when I tried to log in and I figured it was from recently changing my CC info on the account. I called today and the representative says I was banned for RMT activity after keeping me on hold for 45mins. There's only one problem... I don't do any RMT'ing.
The only thing I could see is I garden on 15 mules and send money to my main from these mules after NPCing the items I get from Wildgrass Seeds. Has this happened to anyone else who gardens? I told the representative that I garden and that's where all my money comes from but he didn't sound like he really knew anything about the game and has no control over bannings.
The only thing I can figure could've happened besides being misunderstood for a RMT is that someone hacked my account sometime yesterday and did some RMT with my gil on-hand, though I didn't really have much since I keep buying stuff for my SMN and PLD.
Any insight would be appreciated as I feel completely betrayed by SE now and all my plants will die, causing me to lose about 300-400k. The rep said my account banning will be reviewed and they will get back to me within about 2 weeks. If I haven't heard anything by then, I should just assume my account has been perma-banned.
