Hi all,

My account got hacked; here is the entry from seclog;

June 29, 2017, 08:55:29 PM - sussex - password changed

I can't prove ownership with a BTC address and I set up the account years ago, so I no longer have access to the email account I used - if I can remember it....

I can prove ownership by telling a mod which people I have PM'ed and trades that I did on the account. I can also probably prove it by IP, since one of the locations I accessed the account from is a static IP.

There may be other ways I have not thought about.

This is completely my fault, I got complacent, but if any mods could help me out I'd be eternally grateful.

Fingers crossed  Wink

PS, Use a strong password guys!!!

Theymos said that the only acceptable way of proving ownership is through signing a message. Just try your best to find a way to sign a message to your BTC address and also you can use the address that you used in your trades or you'd pmed.

I very rarely recover accounts if you can't prove ownership as described above. There are alternative ways of proving ownership, but they take too much time. If I point you to this thread, you can't prove ownership properly, and then I ignore your future PMs, this means that I'm not going to recover your account. Create a new one.

It could be tricky and chances that you can recover your account is low. Hoping that you will recover it!

Yeah, I saw that message from Theymos, I'm hoping to catch a mod on a good day  Wink since I can't sign any messages because I use a new wallet for every transaction and dump the old ones.

Like I said, I'm the one to blame.

Thanks for the help, dude.

This is the account. He still has to convince the DT members that it has been hacked.
Although I think somebody might tag it, until this is resolved.
