In progress Old acct was possibly compromised; can’t change password

Post by Acctwashackedmaybe July 2nd 2021, 6:02 am

Please forgive me for any formatting issues, as I am writing this on mobile and slightly stressed given the situation.

I believe an older account of mine was recently compromised, as I received a email stating I had received a PM earlier today in a forum I had created a long time ago. However, when attempting to sign in to read the DM, and needing a password change, I was informed that admin settings had been set to prevent this.

Please note, I had to make this acct in order to log in and write this, though the emails are the same.

Your account here has nothing to do with your forum.   Creating a forum does not create an account here.  Did you already have an account here?
