    yeah that happened to me one day too - but not here! make sure you have an password that is not too easy to brute force. For more important accounts like email, egay, paypal I have always some numbers and special signs in my password!

    Naw it turns out he didn't hack my BHW account, but he targeted me through BHW.

    He called me a spammer and an illegal cookie stuffer and all this shit that wasn't true. then he tried to blackmail me for all of this illegal stuff I was supposedly doing.

    But then he realized that he only had my personal email and aim and they weren't worth jack shit, so I gave him some software and he gave me my passwords back.

    One question tho, if I changed all of the info in my accounts again, is there a way that the hacker can leave something that allows him to hack back in? I need to stop this from ever happening again.

    I would have said to that guy that your reporting him to your ISP and that your on the Phone with the FBI Cyber Crime unit .... What he's doing is a felony. You could probably trace him and have him arrested.
