Nobody has to compromise your account to send emails pretending to be you, i could send emails pretending to be a certain orange pain in the backside if i wanted to, all they are doing is spoofing the return address so you get the bouncebacks

Re: BREACH EMAIL SECURITY

Problem started  when they managed to convice 2 major compamies to change the account password and order goods

they posted me a copy of my granted request and orders  , i managed to block and close account ,

then i asked why they allowed a  a person with a name not on there books to to this they refused to comment

luckily they believed my details and stopped the account changes .the Name Used Was  IVAN    And email

ended  @  ??? .ru  so  and some links posted since were nasty websites .

Consider discussing this with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).
