    i think i got my gmail account hacked.

    not sure how it happened but i was just sitting there and someone messaged me as the "funerealcoho". well he said i talked to him first when really he talked to me first. i suggested he got the wrong screen name and offered alterations of mine.

    he then told me my screen name was showing up as goldencoho or something like that and not my real screen name.

    i wasnt sure if they were able to see or access my account so i just shut it down.

    does anyone know what this is or how to protect myself?


    edit: i just realized that it was AIM through gmail where i was getting contacted from
