    Hello again,
    My BHW username : @KamBhai
    I just received an email this morning looks like this:

    KamBhai,

    Your email at BlackHatWorld - The Home of Internet Marketing was recently changed to cannbera @ gmail . com. If you made this change, you may ignore this message.

    If you did not request this change, please log in and change your password and email address. If you are unable to do this, please contact an administrator.

    Your email was changed by the IP 103.43.33.84.

    Thanks.

    Man, this is sick whoever did this. Also tried to get my FB but my passwords are different in most places.
    I did use the same pass in some forums and may be from there it happened.
    My main account shows online right now but its not controlled by me.
    I already used the contact page to send an email but if some Admin can assist this immediately that will be helpful.

    So far I see no new posts from that account yet, no idea about PM and conversations.

    You did the right thing by contacting support, though you weren't supposed to create a second account here.

    Unfortunately, I'm unable to help you here as I'm only an MiT. The administrators will probably be back in 2 or 3 hours (more or less), but when you regain access to your account, go through your PMs and contact anyone the hacker may have messaged to let them know it wasn't you. Also, set up 2-step authentication; it's not as much of a pain as it seems. ;)

    Thanks !
    I am also waiting for some staff member to come and fix this for me.
    I see no posts were done yet. I will have to check the PMs because the last activity is showing engaged in conversation in my profile.
    I will ask staff to delete this account as soon as I retrieve my original one.
    I know I am not allowed to create another account but I just freaked out and made this one to let everyone know.

    Ha ha, I was about to ask if you and I were reading the same thread. ;)
    No worries, I understand.

    At the moment, it looks like I'm the only one online, but I'll watch to see if any moderators or admins come online in the next few hours (assuming they don't help you first).
