You can use the same Gmail account to regain your account by recovering your password via Gmail. But you need to make sure that your vys account is already linked to your Gmail account. good luck
Can you explain how to do this?

Doesn't make sense to me. If I did read this correctly, the hacker changed the email, he must have changed the pass by now too. There are logs where you can check this or you can ask a mod. Your yopmail should be useless by now and not linked to the forum.

Anyway, im sorry to be the realistic here, but you will most likely not recover the account. It's a Full Member account, and you only have an ETH account.

There are Legendary members with BTC signed addresses that don't get their account back as well:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3652698.0

This doesn't mean you should stop trying. Send it to cyrus and theymos and wait. I don't think there's any strict rule against bumping your own thread from time to time, don't spam and you should be ok.

Doesn't mean you should stop trying, but you're not getting it back, no admin on here cares about you, I wish there was a good alternative to this forum.

Thanks for your reply. I sent a private message for cyrus and theymos more than 2 weeks ago, but did not receive an answer Sad
I will try to restore my account, as long as I have the strength to do it.

Vyg I am in a similar situation where my account was stolen. After reading similar things from others I am less optimistic than I was starting out, and I know exactly what you're going through. So far I have just messaged Cyrus, and hilariousandco, and in a weeks time will try messaging Theymos.

This is my stolen account on bitcointalk kworrom: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=80785

-----BEGIN BITCOIN SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I can still sign messaged with a bitcoin address (189EGkRQHkzPwqrzvaabgAVj696eL6uQeB) I own and posted on the account, but this didn't seem to get a response or any action taken. I also still own the original kworrom gmail to sign up for the account, and have old notifications from bitcointalk from messages received still. Check out https://snag.gy/Gd7Wu3 and https://snag.gy/OztVaE screencaps. They stole my account to use to spam bounty programs, and then additionally used my identity to create a telegram account and spam youtube. Vyg, have you checked how the person is using your account now? This message was created on August 22nd 2018.

I've used the address multiple times: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=80785;sa=showPosts;start=920

In the end my best advice is send one signed message with information to Cyrus/hilariousandco/Theymos, and check back every week on the situation for a message from them. If it takes longer than 6 months just move on and consider that they are choosing to ignore your request. This is at least how I am approaching the situation. Hopefully your account is returned to you, or you can find a way to eventually move on to using another account or other forums. At the very least if your account is benefiting from bounty programs like my stolen account is maybe try and contact the bounty providers to get them suspended, or again message hilariousandco to try to ban the account (hilariousandco has not responded to me yet, but said he would look at a message the other day). It is a sad state of affairs, but honestly it's just life... you will take losses and have to move on. This is unfortunately one of those situations it seems.

I admire you for the time and afford you are putting here to get the account back. It's really sad to see that nearly two months gone and non of the admin noticed it. By the way, I have full support for you.

I notice you did not open your thread and ask someone to verify your address and tag hacker so he can not use your accounts on a way he is using it now. Also mods can ban your account if you prove that you are owner, and signed message is good proof for that.

I notice you did not open your thread and ask someone to verify your address and tag hacker so he can not use your accounts on a way he is using it now. Also mods can ban your account if you prove that you are owner, and signed message is good proof for that.

Lucius, I'm not sure I follow your suggestion. Am I approaching this in the wrong way? What should I do next in your opinion? Here's a timeline of my actions:


1. I read Theymos's stickied post about recovering a hacked/stolen account and followed his instructions.

If you want us to recover a hacked/lost account, you need to prove that you own it. Typically, the only acceptable method of proving ownership is by signing a message (including current date and desired new email address) using a Bitcoin address or PGP key associated with the account. Send one PM to Cyrus. If Cyrus doesn't respond after two weeks, you can try sending a PM to me instead. When sending a PM, use a template...

2. I privately messaged Cyrus once with a signed Bitcoin message using an address I used on the account in the format suggested. It has been two weeks with no reply from Cyrus.

3. I privately messaged the moderator Hilariousandco once with a signed Bitcoin message after he replied to me in a thread. It has been also been two weeks with no reply.
Send me the signed message on my hilariousandco account or post it here and if it checks out I can ban the account. Only admins can restore access to you though so you'll still need to wait for that to happen.

4. I publicly posted about my situation in the same thread responding to hilarious and included a signed Bitcoin message about it.
I've messaged Cyrus and hilariousandco privately. For the public record I will post here as well:

-----BEGIN BITCOIN SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hi, this is morningcoffee aka kworrom. My bitcointalk account was stolen. I've messaged Cyrus and hilariousandco about this. It would be nice if the person who stole my account was stopped. They stole my account to participate in bounty programs, and went further than this by creating a kworrom telegram account to spam on youtube. I have posted the 189EGkRQHkzPwqrzvaabgAVj696eL6uQeB bitcoin address multiple times on the kworrom bitcointalk account, look no further than the second post. Screenshots evidence in case he deletes: https://snag.gy/Gd7Wu3 In addition I own the original email address kworrom@gmail.com and still have notifications from bitcointalk. Bitcointalk notif screenshots: https://snag.gy/OztVaE I created this message on August 20, 2018. Thank you for looking at this, cheers, Peter

Here is one unedited post where I posted the 189EGkRQHkzPwqrzvaabgAVj696eL6uQeB address:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=90718.msg1517066#msg1517066

Here is the link to my stolen account:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=80785

I look forward to seeing action towards this in a reasonable amount of time. I will also message Theymos in 2 weeks if I don't hear from Cyrus. I understand everyone is busy, and it's a horrible waste of time to deal with account requests, but I don't know what else to do at this point.

5. I privately messaged Theymos once with a signed Bitcoin message using an address I used on the account. Now I'm planning on waiting a reasonable amount of time before a response (months) before posting about it again.

You did everything as stated in "Recovering hacked accounts or accounts with lost passwords", but your account should be tagged by DT member and banned by mod so hacker can not do more damage to your account. It is quite logical that the account is completely blocked until the moment it is returned to the right owner, in this case to you.

Thanks for making this clear Lucius, I really appreciate it. Since I have already sent a message to Cyrus, Hilariousandco, and Theymos I will try and message other DT members once with a signed message. After a search I found people have created a handy list of all the DT members on the forum: https://pastebin.com/fdruf3Hx I don't want to spam people though, so I guess the first person I'll message is mprep (moderator of the alt-coin bounty section). I will update if anything new happens, cheers.

Help!

Ohhh, I'm sorry to hear that. More and more bad people have hacked accounts lately. But I don't know what to do. And I will listen to the help given by friends who know more here.

None of the moderators help in solving such problems. Honestly, I already despaired of returning my account. And I do not want to develop a new account any more because I'm not sure that it will not be stolen either. The forum does not protect its people and does not develop protection.

Oh boy  Undecided
I really hope someday theymos hear you lot. I am seeing your hard and soul try since last 3 months and this should be embarrassing for theymos. Come on! Seriously - you do not have 5 to 10 minutes to look into an account? How many requests do you have? 50? 100? 200?

If you take half an hour only two days in a week will this damage your entire schedule for the week? These people deserve to get their accounts back. It should be their property.

This is my last post on this forum.
My account has not been restored and I no longer want to lose, while not restoring, to a recovery, not by trying to reach the administration. Almost 4 months I wrote and waited for the answer from administrators but did not wait.
I spent a lot of time and effort on the development of my stolen account and I don’t want to repeat this feat.
Forgive all the good and kind people who helped me and helped me in every possible way in solving my problems!
All the best! Good luck and profit!
