Theymos,

I sent you a PM last night, but just in case...

My original account - Bitcoin_Mafia - appears to have been hacked, or at the very least locked. I can't log in with
what I know are the correct username and password. Also, when I go to reset the password, the email that contains
the reset password link never arrives. I check my junk mail and my spam folder, and nothing. I know I can receive
system messages from the forum b/c I still have notification emails from when other users have replied to PMs in the
past under my Bitcoin_Mafia account.

Please help!

The BTC address associated with this account is the same one associated with my hacked account.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,

Cynthia

I don't know if I can. The address is a generated one from Cryptsy.

Then you're probably screwed. Did you not send any payments using another address associated with the account?

I can vouch for Bitcoin_Mafia.

That's her real account and someone got into it.

No, that's the only BTC address I have associated with that account. I've still got system messages that were
sent to the email address associated w/ that account as well. Those, coupled with the fact that I have the same
BTC address associated with this account as with the hacked one, should - I hope - be enough to prove that
Bitcoin_Mafia is, indeed, my account.

Keeping fingers crossed!

that's wishful thinking. you either have a GPG/bitcoin signature or you don't. theymos already stated if you don't have either, he's not going to bother with alternative methods because it will take too much time. just don't get your hopes up.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

There's another option that would take a few minutes @ most. I already offered to make send a token
BTC payment from that address to one specified by him to prove the address is mine, but haven't heard
anything yet.

We'll see, I suppose...

Unless you can provide a GPG/bitcoin signature I seriously doubt Theymos is going to restore the account. Sending a trivial payment from another address isn't going to cut it I wouldn't think.


~BCX~

But it isnt' from another address. It is from the same address associated w/ the original account.

You usually can't send from a specific address, especially if the address belongs to an exchange. The only way to do that is by using coin control (in bitcoin core), or with the raw transaction API.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I think this could be a viable solution. Maybe a very small donation to your forum donation address?
Curious if theymos will agree to this.

EDIT: grue, you're right. Silly me, I must be tired.

have you got a respond from Theymos?
Because I have the same problem just like u. and until I write this post no respond yet. some people talk that BTT to slow to respond some problem, I think they right. probably they should give us a progress for our problem, will they investigate or something or what.
For me... waiting is suck.

Unfortunately, no response. I don't know if Theymos is sick, working, out of town, on vacation, on the moon, inundated
with hacked account issues, or just doesn't want to reply. In any case, I finally had no choice but to create a new acct.

I can't even imagine the amount of PMs theymos must get from users about having their accounts hacked or asking why they've been banned / to unban them etc.

Theymos can simply hire some sexy assistants to do the job. With the forum weekly income and millions in reserved I think there could be no problem.

There is a certain forum you must fill out and sign you BTC address and send a PM to him. Then you can only wait.

I already sent my BTC address do him. Couldn't sign it b/c the one I was using was generated @ Cryptsy.

For a personal signature, why would you use Cryptsy? I guess there's no point in telling you now, as you've already learned after it's too late.

Good luck, hope you get your account back. Don't expect Theymos to do anything though. It might be a huge deal to you, but your account is only one of tens of thousands, and these are little nuances to him.

I resigned myself to that fact last week and decided to just bite the bullet and start a new account. A pain in the ass
to be sure, but another valuable lesson learned.
