    Hi,

    Today I received an email from eBay saying that I requested my username (which I didn't), so I went onto ebay and saw that it was in My Messages folder as well, so thought it was ok.

    But then while I was on msn I kept receiving emails from eBay, so I clicked on the email icon and I was prompted to enter my password for hotmail. I entered my password but it said that it was incorrect (even though I was still logged into msn messenger). I kept trying but still didn't work. I then went onto ebay to find that the exact same thing has happened, someone has changed my account for ebay as well.

    I did go on the 'Forgotton your password' link for msn, but the secret question was just '????????' so I couldn't change it.

    I've changed my paypal, amazon and play emails and passwords and contacted ebay, but is there anyway I can get my hotmail account back? Or anything else that I should do?

    cheers

    Only by trying to answer the secret question or by trying to contact Hotmail and proving that you are the rightful owner and the account has been hacked - which isn't easy and usually not successful.
