    Soooo... I just got a "forgot password help" email from EA for one of our accounts (it is closed). I know I did not forget the password and E is at work. So, should I be worried? I checked the status of the account. It still has all of my info, except the billing. I removed that when I closed the account. I tried to log in game and wasn't able to.

    I have never had this happen, so I don't know if I should be worried or should be taking any steps to prevent...... something from happening. :confused:

    I would be worried- someone is probably trying to gain access. You might want to change the password and or account email if you can.

    Change the email address associated with your UO account and the password to your UO account.

    Thanks guys! Done! Thankfully, it was not one on my "major accounts". If someone did manage to hack this account, they really would not find much. I think that surprised, me more than the email myself.

    I've had this happen a few times. Most likely it was an old owner of the account who knows the username and was just taking the chance that it might still have their email as the contact.

    Vortex is dead on. I'm 100% sure that's all it was. Your acct should be fine.

    yeah its most likely an old owner probably didnt think he sold the account or he could of had a similiar account name to what your is, so he typed it in to dbl check see if it got sent to his email..

    if your worried just change ur passoword is all.

    you'll be fine.
