Recently there have been a fair amount of people coming to the boards for cheat program bans.
This is more of a reminder to the regulars to not immediately assume they are guilty.
From what I've seen, we're 3 for 3 ([here](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/gVmbIwkg-banned-due-to-overwolf-products), [here](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/WqaraAWs-account-compromised-and-now-im-banned) and [here](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/general-discussion/c69LGtLw-permanent-banned-for-no-reason) have all been unbanned) recently when it comes to people coming to the board complaining about the ban.
In all three cases their account was compromised and all had their bans reversed once they talked to Riot support (they either admitted they got it resolved or they have played games since then).
So if you see someone confused about a 3rd party ban, ask them to check their match history and point them toward support. I don't know if there have been a recent data leak or if there's a new malware out there feeding a boosting service their accounts, but either way it's odd that there have been a lot of recent cases coming to the board about this.
I'm going to start throwing in other cases I spot since I feel like I'm linking to this thread a lot.
4 - KRapter231 (in this thread) has had their situation resolved and resumed playing games.
5 - [Account recovered, admitted by OP.](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/hGdGjUAK-account-hacked-thereafter-perma-banned)
6 - [This person even had their name changed](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/general-discussion/xAjkAXnZ-have-i-been-hacked-perma-banned-from-false-accusations). They have since gotten their name changed back and continued playing.
7 - [Another one](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/lUH8nd7A-wrongfully-banned-i-think-my-account-was-hacked) where the OP came back to give the news.
8 - [A lot of attention on this one](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/Mm3ZF7LB-i-got-banned-for-games-that-i-did-not-play). OP edited in "Resolved" in their post.
9 - Nyxae in this thread said they've had their issue resolved.
10 - [OP came back with the news that they got their account back.](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/EP2qEOHG-permanent-ban-for-third-party-softwarei-never-used-any-of-any-kind-this-is-100-mistake) Very fast response from Riot on this.
11 - Although wasn't as quick as the last one, [OP still came back to state it was resolved.](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/general-discussion/eKE8xQKI-what-is-wrong-with-riots-security-permabanned)
12 - [A commenter in #10 thread had their ban reversed.](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/EP2qEOHG-permanent-ban-for-third-party-softwarei-never-used-any-of-any-kind-this-is-100-mistake?comment=00050000)
13 - [Came back after several years to discover they were banned.](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/OieAmsJ7-permanent-ban)
14 - [Another user in #10](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/EP2qEOHG-permanent-ban-for-third-party-softwarei-never-used-any-of-any-kind-this-is-100-mistake?comment=0006). They've started playing again since their post so I assume everything got resolved.
15 - [Was a bit since I spotted another one.](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/1w7QrEaw-i-got-permabanned-for-nothing) They came back and gave the update that the ban was reverted.
16 - [Another long gap between sightings.](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/general-discussion/imn72e4y-permabanned-without-reason-or-context) OP started playing matches again since their thread.
17 - [Another No-responder](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/general-discussion/TWOv13QU-my-account-was-hacked-for-2-games-and-then-i-was-banned-please-help). But after a quick check at their match history they've populated it with some new games.
