    Ugh, I think my account was hacked last night/this morning. I signed in and found a testimonial from my account left to me, which I did not write. My sent box also has an e-mail I didn't write containing my private pictures attached sent to some guy in Canada whom I have never talked to before.

    Has anyone had this happen to them before? What did you do? I suppose I should change my pw, but I feel like I'll just get hacked again. I contacted RJ support, but I feel like they're going to be slow.

    I'm sure RJ will take this very seriously, but yes, you should change your password. In fact, it would be a good idea to change it every few weeks.

    I hope who ever done this is found and named.

    Also, some people keep passwords short and simple. This makes is easy for a hacker. In my opinion you should make your password as long as possible, and as unusual as possible. Don't use things like date of birth, or simple things like that in your passwords.

    Sorry, this is off topic.
