My Friendster Account Was Hacked

Labels: , ,
Posted on Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Two days ago, I was so into Facebook that I want to add more friends in my account. Since I have an existing Friendster account, I tried to login to list the names of my friends. It says though that my password is invalid. Since my passwords are auto saved in my laptop, I am certain that I did not change my password. I went to check my Friendster profile and confirmed that my account was definitely hacked. The hacker even changed my status message. Huwat!

Anyway, I clicked the “Forgot your password” link but I did not receive any email for the password reset. It looked like the hacker changed my email address. I finally emailed Friendster Help Desk and was replied hours after. They asked me to scan a valid ID then to attach it to my email. Hours after, they sent a temporary password that worked. However, when I tried to reset my password I encountered problems. It says that my old password was invalid.

I emailed them again and was surprised that the Customer Service was very arrogant to shout on me on her reply.

Based on Alexa, Friendster has dropped 18% while Facebook earned 24% hits over the past three months. No wonder, Maricor of Friendster is so arrogant.

I still have my friendster account but inactive. I don't much more there as I am so busy in facebook and playing the virtual farming, farmtown and farmville. Friedster era is gone and facebook is IN today.

What a shame that the she replied you in a nasty way. Sorry to know that somebody is hacking your account.
