Our Twitter Account Has Been Hacked and Taken From Us by @Subzeeroxx ! - Sammy Makes Six

Our Twitter Account Has Been Hacked and Taken From Us by @Subzeeroxx !

Just letting everyone know, earlier today our Twitter account was hacked. I was logged in when suddenly I was logged out. I tried logging back in to no avail, it kept telling me our account no longer existed. I tried retrieving the password by email to change it as I have done before but they had already changed the email and now just changed the picture and username. You can still see our picture and old tweets there, feel free to re-tweet and let everyone know that this person is a hacker and account thief. What an easy way for them to get so many followers with no work.

I have informed Twitter and given them all the info, hopefully they can get it back for us and if not at least they will shut the account off. I have worked for a year now to get the account to over 6,587 followers and now this person @Subzeeroxx has stolen it from us. Not only have I spent countless hours promoting and joining following sites BUT I have spent money for followers, so this loss has hit me pretty hard.

They post this on Twitter  Quer ganha 1000 Followers por dia?bigfollowers.com.n------u *-*)  added the --- so the link would not be clickable. But once you click the link it takes you to a blank page, as soon as you click out, they take over your account. I guess it's called phishing, so I am trying to warn everyone to watch out for this post on Twitter and these people. DO NOT CLICK ANY LINKS YOU DO NOT RECOGNIZE.

It's morning and even though I sent two emails to Twitter yesterday I still have not heard back. This person @Subzeeerox has now changed all our info, not even our pic remains. BUt you can still see all the older tweets and one thing they were not counting on, we still can tweet to the account from here. We had our Twitter linked to the blog so if we post or use the re-tweet button, it is being posted from there. So what I am doing is posting as much as I can letting everyone know that they are an account thief, I will continue to do so until Twitter shuts them down, at least for spam. Meanwhile we got a new account started so we could post our giveaways and really because I have a feeling we will not get the old account back.

On the @Subzeeroxx, it showed me as a follower even though I've never followed that scammer! I guess he/she transferred your followers to their account. I reported him as spam and blocked him from my twitter account. I am so sorry that happened to you! I hope twitter deals with him! Thanks for letting us know and I hope twitter fixes this for you!

It showed me following as well. I also blocked him/her.
Wondered why when I entered a giveaway of yours earlier I wasn't following you!

The reason you guys are following is that it is still the same account, just the name has been changed. If you were following before, you will continue following with the user name change.

It's still tweeting out your posts?

@Misfit Momma aka Missy
Our blog is still attached so we can tweet from it with the re-tweet button. I am spamming the hell out of it so hopefully they will get shut down. It hurts me to see all my hard work go to this asshole.

Wow, that sucks! I noticed the name in my feed but the pic wasn't one I recognized so I went to check out the account and seen a RT for this post. I just unfollowed and blocked them... I hope Twitter can close the account for you.
