Earlier tonight my PartyPoker account got hacked into. I am not sure how this happened. Party support said that the person logged in from my IP address. They made a new email address and somehow got my password sent to it. I am very frustrated and confused on who did this and why. I cashed out all funds from all my sites, so I can't play poker until this is settled. Party is currently investigating it, and I cannot get into my account because its frozen. The hacker made a $3k cashout to some bookers account (not mine), then lost $5k playing blackjack. So I am currently out $8k and pissed off.
I have heard stories like this and never thought it could happen to me. I never give out my password to anyone, and I am on a secure, firewalled wireless network. So to all you readers out there, just please be careful and don't share your passwords, and make sure you are on a secure wireless network. Even if you are, it can still happen. Its one thing to lose $8k at the tables, but when someone else takes it from you, and you can't do anything about it... It really sucks. So now poker is on postponed. I will keep you updated with how this progresses.
