Bombarded with emails about account compromised.

Last hour or so i'm being bombarded by BDO about my account being compromised. I've got over 10-20 emails about it within minutes.

Anyone else having this?

    I haven't received anything like that but I'd suggest you to check your email address (or multiple ones you use) in this database:
    https://haveibeenpwned.com/
    It is a legit and detailed source of the history of previously hacked accounts. Once you find positive results here, make sure you change your passwords regarding your email account and the listed services as well. If you use the same credentials anywhere else then change them too. Use different passwords on different services or at least never use your email account's password anywhere but on your email account. Once your mailbox gets hacked, all your MMO (or other) accounts are subject to be hacked.

    Oh and one more thing I have to add to the above: Be extremely cautious with emails telling you that your account is compromised. Don't click links provided in such emails but go directly to the official site of the particular service in your browser instead.

    Sounds more like phising to me. When ever I get an email that says my account may be compromised or suspicious activity. I never use a link in the email to check. I go directly to my game and log in and see if all is well. Also check account activity through the main website. Never click links in an email saying your account has been compromised. Again, it looks to me like a poorly executed phising email/s.

    Good luck.

    It actually came from BDO, password reset was the same email being used in the spam emails. I'm already changing my email.

    I have gotten emails from games I have never heard of claiming my account has been compromised.

    I never trust emails period. I always go to the source as everyone else has suggested, aka the main official website.


    Pretty much this! Never click on any links in e-mails you get that might be "Phishy".

    Also I didn't get anything.
