My account (MickeyT2008) was recently hijacked, I discovered this because I started getting notification emails.  I haven't been trading for a couple of years so my account should have been inactive as I've had no reason to post anything or contact anyone.  Anything written before 2015 was by me, anything more recently wasn't.  I hope whoever did this hasn't scammed any of you.

I'm not even sure what they'd hope to gain by impersonating me anyway, I was never a big time trader, I never traded more than £400 worth of BTC and last held bitcoin when it was about $350.  (yes, obviously I wish I still had it, lol, but I don't).

The question of course is how they obtained my login details for this forum.  Anyway I've changed my password so hopefully they won't be able to log in and pretend to be me again.

This account has recently been hacked and taken over, I haven't posted anything for about two years.  Whoever has been using it and pretending to be me is a scammer.
