    In every one of my experiences with godaddy, they have helped me when I called them and I was very impressed with their customer service.
    Being new to domains,websites and such, they were a huge help to me.

    Godaddy is a big company dude, and they do have a good customer care (won't say it's the best, but they do their work). They have lots of happy customers (including me). I have had problems with their server but they solved them pretty quickly. I think it's your account which got hacked!

    yes most probably account hacked

    contact their Transfer dispute team and told that you didn't approve transfer and they will ask you to send some legal document and that is easy to make on your country

    i had same problem few year ago and i got back all my domain.

    Just keep in touch with their support

    where your domain transferred ?

    edit : they have 15 days of the unauthorized Change of Registrant policy so contact immediately.

    Also contact new registrar where you domain transferred so they will lock that account till dispute and if they are using whois guard they will remove that once godaddy confirm the dispute.

    Everyone telling, your account is hacked. I agree with that. Cos, after namecheap I consider godaddy as my 2nd registrar. I have many domains with them and had no issue. I agree they won't provide free privacy like namecheap, but they are one of the best.

    You probably got hacked.. Call them again and make them get the domains back to your account. As someone above mentioned, you should have about 15 days to do this from the moment they where transferred.
