    I actually thought they'd fixed it a while back as I haven't had it before, makes you really apprehensive about buying donuts as at any moment someone could come and spend them all rushing things you don't want .

    Yea that's why I only buy donuts when I'm spending them I don't want to save a large amount knowing that it could be spent at any time

    So the most MAJOR of bug issues STILL hasn't been fixed... :evil:

    I really feel sorry for those who are affected by this, donuts being spent, in game cash being spend, limited items being sold, towns destroyed, it's a discrace and EA should be ashamed of themselves

    Maybe this is a hidden feature, not a bug?

    EA really are sticking it to us with this update - who's to say for certain that the 'wrong town' bit is genuinely a bug or not?

    Luckily this hasn't happened to me yet, even if I only started playing 2 or 3 weeks ago. If this would happen to me and people mess with my town I'd be very mad.

    You're joking right this is a serious issue that shouldn't be happening the only other way would be if someone hacked you. It's not a hidden feature because no game would intentionally let you ruin someone's account town etc.

    I was logged into somebody elses Sprinfield yesterday but I didn't touch anything and they only had 1 donut.

    I won't be buying any donuts for me or my wife until this is fixed.

    Yes, of course I'm joking.

    However, with something as fundamental and serious as this, we gotta ask - are EA genuinely so incompetent (or simply uncaring) to have not resolved it as yet? Bear in mind they've not really helped anyone its happened to so far.......they've kinda said 'There are no refunds, thats policy" and left the victims hanging.

    I've been in other people's towns about 5 or 6 times I think, but only know of one occasion someone's been in mine and all they did was store the prison (probably to let me know they'd been in).

    There's probably been more times but people are mostly kind and just log straight out. It's the d** heads who aren't and mess with the towns and spend donuts I just don't understand. :evil:

    I don't think you realise how serious this major issue is

    I had my first obvious wrong town "visitor" yesterday. I may have had more but this is the first one who did anything. Luckily they were just letting me know that someone had been in and left a bunch of blue dumpsters in a group in front of a building. No donuts were used and as far as I could see nothing sold. EA needs to fix this!

    I don't either it seems like the ones with high amounts of donuts are more likely to lose them. But this is why we at least need a password protection for spending donuts

    I was originally against this idea of having a password for spending donuts, but considering that this issue hasn't been fixed by EA, i'm now all for it. If you guys and girls ask for it or we vote on it yes/no, you have my vote, i'm all in favour of it ;)

    Havent you got that on iOS? I can set the time limit for asking a password when doing purchases through the playstore or in-app.

    I'm on Android

    I have a pasword protect set for buying donuts and then the donut confirmation for spending them, but an extra password protect to spend donuts is a great idea and adds extra security :)

    Ah right, to spend them. I misread and jumped to conclusions! Yeah, that would be a nice addition! :thumbup:

    Instead of a password, we need a bank. :)

    Put your donuts in to protect them. Then any wrong-town-tappers would have to get past Moleman to spend our donu...

    OK, we need password protection for donuts. :wink:

    Yea it says like you have to put it in every 30 min something like that would work

    Well I'm glad this thread I made got the attention it needed, and I'd definately be up for a password to spend donuts in game, as I'm sure that if I did have donuts the person in my town would have been a bas* and spent them considering they used almost all my game cash.
