    * URGENT ! Godaddy Account hacked !

    hello wht members , please I need your help in order to solve my problem .
    I Have an account at godaddy , and yesterday when I was trying to login , godaddy
    keeps telling me that there's no account with these informations ,
    so I decided to mail godaddy about my problem , and here's a copy of the e-mail .
    I decided to submit it here along with my post to clear my problem to everyone .
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    E-mail sent to [email protected] and [email protected]
    and also submitted on the Report Spam Page available on their site :
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Godaddy support , I would like to inform you that my account was hacked today , and
    I'm waiting since 3 hours for help , but I still can't get it !!!
    It all started when
    I was checking my e-mail : [email protected] and was shocked when
    I saw several e-mails coming from Godaddy telling me to confirm cancellations !!!
    what cancellations ??? I didn't cancel anything , I registered my 2 domains :
    netvision-lb.com and fadi-khoury.com and had an online folder also .
    The e-mails told me to confirm the cancellation of each of the three services listed above !!!
    what ??? If you revize your clients subscription history, you can see that I actually
    became a godaddy customer on saturday 8 of october 2005 ! why would I cancel my services
    ??????????
    Okay , then I decided to login to my account at godaddy , and after entering my login customer
    number and my login password , a new page opens telling me that there's no
    account with these informations , please try again !!! I tried million of times
    to relogin again , but the same problem all the time !!! At This Point , I believed
    that my account was hacked . Then I checked whois.sc for my : netvision-lb.com
    and fadi-khoury.com domains !!!!!! and look what I get :

    Please call 480-624-2500 and let GoDaddy know that their external whois
    server is down and returning the following output for this domain.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    No match for "netvision-lb.com" in the registrar database.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Thank you for your patience while they work on fixing it.

    ___________________Oh My God !!! What's that all about ???__________________

    Then I decided to enter account retrieval page , and I tried all the three tools ,
    and none could help me , all I get is :
    Validation Error !
    Invalid Product Combination .

    I'm entering everything correct , why would godaddy put to me that message
    ^^^ ???????????????

    Then I decided to click on : If you need to move your domain to a new account , click here .

    I completed all required fields by entering my two domains : netvision-lb.com
    and fadi-khoury.com
    and all other infos ! and hit continue . !!!!????!!!! then I get this message :
    netvision-lb.com and fadi-khoury.com are not active godaddy domains !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ___________________Why is this happening ??? _____________________________


    Then I decided to mail godaddy about my problem , I filled the Report Spam page
    and included copies of the cancel confirmation mails that I got !!!?? !!! and submit it .
    and then , I decided to mail godaddy through e-mail support system , and
    chosen domain registration and filled the form with the same problem ......
    and then , I mailed [email protected] with my problem.....

    All these e-mails were sent to Godaddy , and till now No Reply to anyone of Them
    !!!!!!!!!!!!! Until recently Godaddy sent me an e-mail :
    Thank you for contacting our online support.

    I didn't phone godaddy cause I live in Lebanon (middle east ) , and phone
    calls are expensive , and as they mentioned on their site , phone waiting will
    be for about 15 minutes ! Sorry but I can't afford 15 minutes just for waiting !

    I just want to know if I've been hacked , spammed or what ?
    How can someone manage to steel and enter my account and cancel my services ?
    My login name and password are hard to guess !!!

    What can Godaddy Do about my problem ???
    Can they still solve it or what ???
    and by the way , while writing this post I checked whois.sc and entered my 2 domains ,
    and I was amazed to see that my domains are parked at wild west domains !
    I know it's a division of godaddy , but couldn't this indicates that
    a transfer or something took place ????

    Anyone experienced the same problem ??
    If yes , plz tell me what did you do about it ???

    Most likely Godaddy is suspicious & suspects fraud about orders from Lebanon. How did you pay? With a Lebanese credit card or a credit card from another country?

    Credit Card Payment :

    I payed with a prepaid internet card issued by a local bank at my country Lebanon .
    It is named : PIC . it's a mastercard available in different amounts 60 $ and 112 $ .
    Do you think godaddy canceled my account because I payed with this card ?
    And by the way , I just received an e-mail from Godaddy telling me to send a photocopy
    of my government issued id in order to activate my account ( Fraud security reasons ).
    I just wonder why godaddy is requesting this photocopy after the activation of my account ,
    shouldn't it be done first , before activation ?
    Anyway , I will send them the photocopy now .
    thanks virginia for your reply ,
    any other support or helpful infos are highly appreciated !

    You may wish to alter the title from HACKED to Godaddy restricted my account for verification purposes. It sounds a wee bit less negative

    I can understand Godaddys position. There is a fair amount of fraud online, better being safe than sorry.
