    Hey guys,

    I've got an old gmail account that I've forgotten everything about. I still receive emails since I created a forwarder to my main e-mail account a few years ago, but it's getting pretty annoying not having access to it.

    I tried Google's recovery option about 20 times in the last 6 months to no avail. Of course there is no way of contacting Google support to prove the account is mine.

    Thats is why I am thinking about using a 'service' to hack/recover
    my account and deliver the password to me. At the moment I'm considering these two:
    - http://www.hirehackers.com/
    - http://payahacker.com/

    Has anyone had any experience with these services or are these just scams?
    Can you recommend another solution or another service?

    do you usually use complex password, such as combination of letters, numbers and special chars?

    if not, you could just try to use a brute force program

    I don't usually use any special chars but I tried every password I ever used and still don't get through.

    I've never actually used a bruteforce program, any hints on that? Wouldn't Google have mechanism to prevent / detect that?
