this has been going on for the last few years now but these days more than ever i regularly keep receiving mail and messages from youtube, ebay, paypal (can't access that one at all anymore), ALL my hotmail accounts, ALL my outlook accounts, google and google mail and other services that there has been an attempt to hack my account. some of these are scam mails but most of them are the real thing and ask me to go to my account and change my password. i use multiple names that are not related to each other yet they all keep getting hacked. i don't have any enemies that i know of. never did anything bad on the internet. but i still feel very aggressively assaulted online. google said it's a chinese hacker and i believe there is/are some russian hackers targeting me as well. as i google for information i find out that other people have the same problem (many of them also with the same chinese hackers). my security is pretty good and i scan regularly and i use tough passwords but it just not doing anything anymore.
i just don't know. i don't know if i can trust the internet anymore. i love using the internet and all these services that make life easier but it's not worth it if i keep getting hacked no matter how tough i make my passwords and no matter how many old accounts i close and new accounts i create. the hackers are getting more and more shameless by the day.
does anyone else experience an increase in hacker attacks/attempts to break into your accounts? i'm not saying i'm some special case or anything. other people have the same problems. do you feel safe on the internet anymore? i don't think it's going to get any better, it's going to get worse.

you need to scan your pc for any virus/keylogger/rootkit that may be present. i HIGHLY recommend a program called malwarebytes, it's offered as freeware but if u buy the actual program u get some flash scanning which can come in handy.
seriously this is the best anti virus, hands down. it will even protect you browsing the net for any malicious attempts to hijack your browser and such
