account was hacked... and some fucker deactivated it!
It was NOT ME.
Guys... I don't know what the hell happened.
Oh wait... yes I do.
Someone posted a "This was stolen from [link]" on my latest image -- ninjakato.deviantart.com/art/S…
(the image has been stored but the link should suffice) and I clicked the link because it was a link to a DeviantART page... it sent me to the log in page... next thing I know... my account is deactivated... and it's saying I have the verify my email address as firstname.lastname@example.org (I don't remember the email address exactly).
It seriously happened so fast there was no time to investigate further...
The first account was a bait account (sending out the message of accusatory theft to get the person's attention) then the second [link] account is the actual phishing account.
It pulls some switch-er-oo and next thing you know your account is deactivated and you're left having to try and fix it.
Meanwhile you can't do a damn thing for 48 hours! (Especially due to the long holiday that this just so happened to happen on -_- how convenient~)
What the fuck am I supposed to do?!?!?!
This fucking SUCKS! =/EDIT:
Here's the proof if anyone wants to see -- i47.tinypic.com/qyu3ut.png
this is the comment that started it all.
It's a phishing account! DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINK POSTED in a comment like that!i45.tinypic.com/rbi1rq.png
As you can see, I've manage to log back in with a new password and a new email address.
However, I'm afraid I cannot and will not be able to reactivate the account for 2 days (until Monday at the very least since dA's staff is on vacation for Thanksgiving).
As I said, I stored all my artwork until further notice... I can't view it anyway so... =/ (or at least I tried to store it -_- I doubt it worked...)
I really really really hope I can get things sorted on Monday. I need that account active... I've got artworks on there I no longer have on my computers... not to mention it holds a lot of memories for me :CREAD THIS COMMENT! PRETTY MUCH SUMS IT ALL UP ON WHAT HAPPENED! -- comments.deviantart.com/1/3396…
PLEASE, spread the word as much as you can on this situation! Re-post this journal if you prefer. GET THE WORD OUT THERE ABOUT THIS SO NO ONE ELSE HAS IT HAPPEN TO THEM!
