My Email Account was Hacked
Last month my gmail, rediff, and yahoo email address was hacked by a guy. Even though I recovered it he kept on hacking my id’s. I was wondering who and why was he was doing this. So I left my email- id’s without recovering my passwords to know who was hacking it.
Just 2 days back, I recovered all my e-mails and found that the guy who hacked my email was trying to access my domains which was purchased from dynadot. He had also cleverly changed my paypal id in all the blog advertising websites in which I was registered. So I decided to find his details and remitted a dollar to his paypal account and got this culprits identity. Thereafter, I took the help of social networking websites and searched for his information and this is what I got – “He is a native of Thanjavur and presently residing in Pune”. I also found his mobile number and was waiting to call him. However, the irony was he happened to be one of my close friend’s friend. So I decided not to spoil his life by filing a complaint in cyber crime.
The very next day, I called him and told him that I am the owner of the email address he hacked. He was shocked and equally suprised as to how I found his mobile number and other personal details. I told him that I had all the proofs about him, while he is trying to access my domains and my paypal id.
I just advised him not to do this again and I also asked him not to spoil his life by doing such dirty things after all for money ( bcoz I could have filed a complaint against him under cyber crime). I told him if he wants to earn please do so by working but never ever steal from others pocket. Finally he accepted that he hacked and apologised me…..
So guys!!! Be safe when you are using free email address.. If you ask me for one piece of advise, I would say it is better to use your own email address if you are into internet business.
