Re: account hacked

Change the password to be on the safe side, but it's likely it's not originating from your own email and they're spoofing the email headers to make it look like it.

Re: account hacked

Complete hoax to make you think you've been hacked when yo've not. Just delete the email and dont click any link in it.
