    Hey guys,

    So recently I was doing this trade with some guy from another forum for a video game account. I figured he was a scammer but I gave him the information to the video game account before realizing that. Anyways, he figured out that I used the same password or very close to it for almost every single website I am on. So far I have received a $25 charge from Skype and but I'm afriad there will be more. I think he can get onto my Ebay as well but not my Paypal(hopefully). How should I go about dealing with this?

    You gave him your password. That is not hacking.... IANAL but I think only accessing systems without a password is illegal. If you publish your password and someone destroys your online presence, you could sue for damages but not for hacking.

    I gave him the password for a video game, not for my email and paypal and other profiles. 0_0

    1. This isn't hacking.
    2. What do you want people to say? Just change your password

    It's not "hacking" if you just simply gave him the password. You should change all your passwords right now to prevent any further loss, don't sit there and say you're afraid!

    I think you must change all of your password. I hope you didn't give him your email password. If you don't then this could not be a big problem for you.

    It still counts as "Unauthorised Access".
    The first thing you should do is stop fannying about on here and change ALL passwords for ALL accounts you have.
    Then contact your Bank and CC company notifying them that your accounts may have been compromised.
    Seriously though, bit of a stupid error to make Mate.
    Oh and send the douche bag a message stating that you have reported him to the following:
