    Hi guys, today I've got the worst news I've ever had in my life. My GMAIL got hacked at first (google blocked my account activity pretty fast but I still think the hacker managed to synchronize gmail to chrome and so he got all my saved passwords). Then a few hours later I got an email saying my domain got "unlocked" (my domain was on godaddy), a few moments later I got another email saying my domain administration contact has been changed, I've checked it out through who.is and it is now protected with whois information from domainsbyproxy.com (so he made the transfer but still hasn't changed the nameservers, the website still works). The thing is this website is my main source of income and I got fucked up.

    I've sent emails to [email protected] , changeupdate.com providing my legal ID photo and driver license and also sent an email to domainsbyproxy.com telling them my domain got hijacked.

    Has this ever happened to you? If so, have you ever got your domain back? (GoDaddy support can't help me as I can't remember my GoDaddy PIN or 8 last digits on the credit card)

    I wish they had a fucking button named "TOTAL LOCKDOWN" of the account until the owners presents his ID...

    Hey man, sorry to hear that your Domain was Hijacked. That's S**T news.

    A few years ago a company owned by a family friend had their website Hijacked and the hosts wer unwilling to help, so a fairly similar situation.

    They solved it, but you won't like the answer.

    They took it to court and spent alot of money to get their domain back. They spoke to ICANN.

    It might cost you some serious Dough.

    Good Luck Dude.
