SOLVED

What happened:: User PM'ed me with a link to a phising website that seemingly looked like bitcointalk but with an error stating the session has expired and was asking for my password.

Scammers Profile Link: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1058769

Reference Link: Via PM. Quote attached below, I've removed the phishing site's link from the hyperlink, but attached the link within a code tag.

Must be a hacked account, password were changed recently.
Also, the post made on 13th of March looks linked to his original Twitter/Facebook account (Both have Billy name on it).
And by looking at the time the PM were sent, it was hacked very recent, maybe under 24 Hours Roll Eyes

Anyway, tagged but since I'm not a DT it won't show up publicly

It's still right to tag your account as hacked or potentially hacked account. Just to warn everybody about it.

If you account was really hacked then that is not my problem. I just post what happened and it is up to the community to decide about it. billy.ryoko PM'ed me asking to put this down, but I don't really have any power to convince DT members what to do about this.

@billy.ryoko: The best you can do is to ask for the removal of the trust rating or conversion to a neutral one.
