The Facebook games burglar slept past quietly after stealing all the goodies from Paola Letizia’s Facebook account. Paolo is a long time enthusiast of the popular Facebook game called “Pet Society”. Everything was gone from the Pet home but the only thing left was the pet “Blue cat”.

Authorities believe that the hacker got access to Letizia’s password system because she used the same password as the name of her online pet. The hacker easily got into her Facebook account retrieved all the goodies that the Palermo resident had collected over the years and went his way.

What kind of a thief will take online items for loot? It seems that the Italian police have no intention of pursuing this case.
