Hi all,

My account was hacked last week: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=249183

It was a very interesting "Legendary" account:

I have read this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=497545.0

However, I have never signed or posted a BTC address in this forum AFAIK. I believe I did this with other altcoins' addresses. Is that valid to recover my account?

What else can I do to recover it?

Thanks a lot!

If you really have read it then you should know the answer. You can prove that you own the account by other methods if you can't sign a message using your Bitcoin address though there is a little chance to be entertained. If you can sign thru that altcoin addresses then try with the same format you see in that link and attach the link to where you posted it.

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.

So now this hacker is joining bounty programs and leading them:

I am sure there must be a way to block my old account to prevent him from scamming people here.

If you can prove that account is yours.

Which I can do in many ways but not with a BTC address as I already said...

Anyway, it is clear enough that my original account has changed recently e-mail and it is having a different behaviour...They could put it in quarantine at least, not for me, but for the potential scams.

Sorry, but that is very unusual for a legendary member and hardly to believe, that no proof can be provided with signing message on BTC address. Didn't you ever join to a signatur campaign or share your BTC address in forum? Anything could help.
Edit: Look also to your email account and to spam folder. Maybe the new enail notification security feature was already active. If so, you got a notification about changed email and password with locking link.
