    Wow, so in the manner of a few hours I had 1/3 of my accounts hacked. I found they were hacked because I was able to see their status updates and they have changed after facebook said the passwords were changed. (They were changed by a bot also as the status were very scripted...)

    Not exactly sure what to do as the email account attached to them was hacked also... Yahoo will let me recover my email account but I dont know the zip code as I purchased these accounts like a week ago. Facebook sent a security code tot he email but that does no good. I could have facebook send it to the phone number the accounts were verified with but again, I purchased the accounts so no good there... :(

    Any ideas? I think I'm gonna have to kiss the accounts goodbye and start all over...

    I think just create new accounts and be careful next time. Like update your antivirus, be careful what you install. when you buy accounts replaced the passwords.

    ya I agree... I run avg everyday and I have no questionable software installed. I've done clean reinstalls too many times so I am extremely careful about what I install...

    Did you bother to change the account passwords after you bought them? If not they were most likely repossessed by the seller, not hacked. Your supplier could have also mistakenly sold that batch of accounts twice (which does happen even with reputable sellers). :D

    Always change the passwords immediately after you buy.

    Yup, either that or he purposely took the account back since the E-mail was compromised as well. PM me for a cheap and reputable account supplier.
