    I just got 3 SMS from my bank saying that $300 (~16,000 INR) has been withdrawn using my Credit Credit (online transfer) on three installments and all the three times it was paid to GoDaddy.

    I called up my bank and they say it all was paid to GoDaddy using online transfer. I can not login to my GoDaddy account using my Id and password. I tried "Forget Password option" and it say the email is sent to ***** which is a sure sign that my account is hacked.

    There is nothing I can do about this talking with my Bank because all they say is I transferred to GoDaddy. but I DID NOT. I however asked them to stop the transactions for now but I am not sure what should I do now.

    Is there anyway I can get the money back? Also, anyone know GoDaddy's India's 247 customer care number... if there is one?

    (sorry for your loss.. contact go daddy via their phone number on the top of their site, and stay on the phone with them until it is resolved, even if you have to call with your bank on 3 way)

    sorry to hear the news. this just happened to a client of mine. 50 of their domain names were transferred out of the account and the hacker bid on two auctions for domain names totaling $800.

    fairly painless to get resolved. go daddy took reversed the transfers and credited the money back to my client.

    good luck
