I'm feeling rather sore right now, sore as in my ego and pride has been hurt. As a computer enthusiast and knowledgable user i never thought i would see the day i would fall victim to some muppet sending our viruses and stealing my information
i logged into my internet banking this morning to discover someone has use my ebay account to purchase a new Blackberry phone over in america (im in the UK).
I'm trying to figure out what happened and recover from it but my guess would be i have fallen victim to a remote key logger. As none of my passwords have changed therefore he hasn;t used a reset password option or antyhing as far as i can tell.
My hotmail has been done, my ebay account and my Paypal account
I say luckily but it's not when you think about it but luckily enough it was only for just over £100. (could have been worst)
Not that i suppose he uses this address often but as a warning when i logged into my hotmail account my emails were being auto forwarded to email@example.com
so i'm assuming this is the b3st3rd that is responsible.
Has anyone else been unlucky enough to be done by somehting like this?
Is there anything i can do, legally? i mean i've reported this to Paypal and Ebay and my bank just to be safe, and i'm confident i will get the money back but this just doesn't seem like enough justice.
How do the police handle these matters? my guess is they won't take it too seriously.
