    :(:(:(
    Thought I was savvy enough to know scams but I've been caught to the tune of $199 and feel so stupid for being so trusting.

    Needed to get into my hotmail account and couldn't remember the password no matter what I did :(

    Paid for a so called hacker to do it and guess what, not heard a thing since I paid.
    I emailed from another account and got a reply with payment details etc but as soon as I mentioned who I was, no replies.

    Blimey, I feel stupid!!!!:eek::eek::eek::eek:

    I don't know how you expected a hacker to get into your hotmail account, the only
    way they could do that is with the password which you had lost unless it was cached
    on your pc somewhere and then you would have to allow the hacker to hack your pc
    (Dumb idea)
    which you could search yourself.
    Hackers can't randomly hack hotmail accounts they get in with hacked passwords.
    Like said above, you should just contact hotmail support.

    You expect someone to risk their freedom to hack into Hotmail (Microsoft per say) and give you your account?

    Also you expect a hacker to be able to bruteforce your password that you forgot on Hotmail's platform?

    For 199 USD...wow...you could probably have bought an ebook that told you how to "hack" hotmail accounts
