A friend of mine got his online account raped. He is going to get his money back (I think) but it serves as a lesson to everyone. The method used to do this was simple. He gathered some personal information about Aeq and was able to get Yahoo! to give him the online mail account using this information. It was then simple to log into his online poker accounts and click the "I forgot my password" option. It sent his password via Yahoo! and walla, free money. The guy ended up blowing the money at a 10/20 table and was eventually caught. I guess the lessons you can learn here are to not use an internet email account possibly. Also be careful about what information you give out to people.
