    Identity theft- Help someone is trying to steal me

    Hi Qitsune here.
    I haven't been able to log on all day because I keep getting this message:

    Wrong username or password. You have used up your failed login quota! Please wait 15 minutes before trying again. Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Click here!
    According to an automated e-mail I got from the board, someone from IP address: 209.59.169.2 is trying to log on to my nick.

    Can something be done about it? I know my password and I don't try to log on 5 times in a row.

    (Content of e-mail)
    Dear qitsune,

    Got that too. It's probably got something to do with the server modifications, me and someone else mentioned it in the 3.0 thread.

    Ditto on the failed login quota. After reading this thread I tried to check out my 3.0 profile which said my password was incorrect. I went through the 'forgot my password' procedures and was able to login to my 3.0 account. Upon logging in, all of my profile info is gone, my group messages that I wrote were deleted and I'm no longer listed as a member, I had pending friends request that were approved over a week ago, and all the friends I had added are gone, and the photo I uploaded is gone as well. I'm guessing that one of the servers might have backed up over a week ago and the one with the current info is off line or took a dump. Guess I'll just go make myself a drink, get back to drawing and patiently awaiting the full launch of 3.0

    It was happening to me, as well, but it seems to be fixed now. No harm done.

    Fixed for me, for today. The freaky part is my bf tracked the IP listed to a company in NYC.
