Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Some crafty sod has hacked either my paypal account or Origin account and is buying Xbox360 games. Have been on to Paypal and have got all my money back approx £250. Appears the intruder is using my e-mail account as well and has the monicker of ' MenacingQuill61'. Is there anyway of tracing this fecking crook?

    Have changed all the passwords and my current credit card has been cancelled, Paypal account has restricted access.

    It's very unlikely that you can trace them.

    Only other thing to do is to ensure your computer and antivirus are up to date: Computer security - ARRSEpedia

    Just make sure you are not re-using passwords on other sites. This may help: http://keepass.info/
