Hey fellow POTN members. I have recently discovered that a lot of my accouts have been hacked and the person is also getting people to send stuff to my address and then signing a different name besides mine when the mail carrier of whatever type gets to the address. He has been doing his for over a week now and was even having people send money to my paypal account. Luckily I kept a different password and email address on my paypal and I never used my paypal on my home computer or network. So fortunately that password wasn't saved. Which is a good thing cause that's how I caught all this. I spent all day yesterday sending payments back to the people that sent them.

So DO NOT TRADE OR BUY from this account. I'll be trying to make a new one once I get this worked out. If u have traded somethin with this account I'll need to know about it so we can try to get ur stuff back to u.

Sorry in advance,
Elijah

ElijahEOS, have you changed all your passwords since the fraud, especially passwords to POTN and the email account registered with POTN?

That was my thought. A roommate or someone else very close.
