It's called being an ass.

Back at another forum, we used to do that to each other all the time, to lock people out of their accounts for 15 min.

EDIT: I'm going to throw out another possibility. Someone got into the CF server. They got your CF username and password and email, searched google for your email being in use in other forums, and tried to use your username and password on other sites. And than they tried password variations.

EDIT:

Do nslookup on the ip address in your email and compare it to the mod logs here in the modcp, if it matches a member here then it could help you catch who did it if your really that scared about it

i.e. do an ip search in the mod control panel with the ip that tried to hack your account

Yeah sounds like someone was just messing around but it is a co-incidents happening on the day you actually went back.
