Greetings!

Need to take a moment and explain why my account was banned in the last 72 hours. Somehow my account was hacked, and its email address got changed. Whoever did this, was trying to defraud other users by selling them crap and collecting bitcoin. Mods intervened and banned my account until they got to the bottom of it. Needless to say, I was not behind these activities and have never sold anything on BHW.

Apologies to the following users for getting screwed over. I hope none of your efforts got completed and no transactions were made. I doubt it did, since mods banned the account very quickly and prevented any further communications to be made with the person who was behind this. Special thanks to @Heiko. Guys, please do not purchase anything outside of actual approved sales thread in BHW. If not part of a sales thread, 99% it is a fraud. Also, majority of you were reached out to purchase my account and you did not have any intentions of purchasing anything outside of official sales thread

One more thing: hard lesson to be learned: use 2 factor authentication!! https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/how-to-use-two-step-verification-2fa.1042248/ . If I had done this, my account would have never been hacked.

If someone purchases outside Marketplace, I won't feel sorry for them. This is the first rule every newbie should learn.

Hackers don't stop at one account. BHW members should stop using easy passwords or using the same password for multiple sites. Better go for 2 factor authentication.

maybe a policy should be set in place: for being a jr vip, you need to have 2 factor authentication enabled. it saves you time with dealing with crap like this, since it is mostly jr. vips account that get hacked
An ex-moderator suggested this two years ago and was sadly rejected.

lesson 3 - Use a strong password and different passwords for different accounts

using the same passwords for all platforms makes it all too easy for hackers :weep:
