PostSubject: My account begin Hacked!!!   Mon Dec 13, 2010 12:11 pm

Hi GR,

My hotmail and face book had been hacked and they had been asking around for ransom! Please ignore this or you can report a spam or to the police!

They had ask from my friends to transfer $$ to 59 Hawley street, Lagos, zip code 23401, Nigeria.

I can’t log in to my account to change my passwords but if you have any better idea of what should I do please let me know. Thank you

Contact FB and Hotmail directly. Explain to them your situation. They will ask for your particulars to verify so that they can reset your account passwords etc.

Rick,
Do these things.

1. In each of those account, there's an option for you to reset your password. Do it. If it fails, there's a section where you can report that your account has been compromised (or "If you think someone has been using your account). Do it also.

2. Always make passwords difference between one account to another. If you want to use the same id in Hotmail and FB, please use different password....
