    Greetings!

    I got a couple emails saying that my password had been changed, and then, moments later, that my email had been changed.

    Not sure how this happened, but I'm apparently now unable to access my other account, thanks to the douche rocket on the other end of the email address:

    zexomox (at) cartelera (dot) org

    Never had this happen before. Any idea who I should talk to about it? I've been a member here since about 2009, so I'm not sure what the asshole plans on doing with my account, but I was certainly hoping to get it back.

    I do appreciate any help from you guys. This has never happened any account of mine before, so I do apologize if I sound a little frustrated.

    Cheers.

    I did indeed go to the support page and explain the situation. I never got a reply, but I was curious if there was a way to get it back.

    If I need proof, I still have emails that were sent to my own email address for that account as far back as 2011. Do you suppose that would help me regain access to it?

    I'm not sure as I've never dealt with the issue directly. A moderator will more than likely come to this thread sometime in the next few hours, so they should be able to tell you what to do next.

    It's possible for them to unban the account and help you access it again assuming everything lines up with what you're saying, though.

    To answer the last question from your first reply, it just happened yesterday.

    Yeah, I've never dealt with anything like this with any account before. I'll watch for a mod's reply.

    By the way, I noticed that the "location" on the @OTrap account that says, "Account under review". I'm not sure if you put that there or if a moderator put that there, but if a moderator did, it at least means they suspected something was different about the account.

    A mod will get in contact with you about this soon - we've seen your support tickets that have come through the forum.

    This will be worked on, you will just need to be a bit patient. Until this is sorted, the account has been temporarily banned.
