mad.gif Haven't been on there for a week or two but just happened to check my emails today and it said my George Ezra CD had been shipped. rolleyes.gif I thought, "WTF, who the hell is he, never heard of him!" Anyway she says it was ordered 3am Saturday. I was well and truly asleep then. Now the only person who knows my password is my daughter and she assures me it's not her. We took her to Uni yesterday so she wouldn't be here when it arrived anyway. So today, 4.15 am, someone's ordered a Beatles box-set which they've cancelled. Told me to keep the CD if it arrives but they'll try to stop the delivery and refund me. I've changed my password now but how do they hack it when it's not a password you can easily guess? mad.gif rolleyes.gif

Security questions can be easily deduced sometimes by a relative / family friend.

Quite a few ways to hack your account without guessing the password. They could've infected your PC with some virus, hacked Amazon servers and got info from there, someone accessed your PC remotely or something.

Amazon should only store the password in encrypted form so it shouldn't be possible for anyone to get it from them. The security questions is definitely a possibility but only if someone targeted a specific account for some reason.

I suggest you change your e-mail password as well, just in case.

What even IS the point of buying something to have it delivered to your victim's house?! That's either a bad prank or that person is just super dumb.

They can't exactly have it delivered to their house, their address would be revealed. Maybe it's someone thinking they can get their hands on the item before it's delivered?

Anyone want a shrink-wrap sealed deluxe edition George Ezra CD album? It arrived but they don't want it back and have still refunded me. PM me your address and I'll mail it to you free gratis next week. I'll pay the postage. Worth £13.78! I'm no stalker or murderer btw and won't turn up on yer doorstep, lol. laugh.gif

I have been asked not to name the taker. Someone is maybe a little ashamed of liking George. biggrin.gif ohmy.gif

So your amazon account gets hacked to have Wanted on Voyage ordered and COINCIDENTALLY George Ezra goes #1 on the Albums Chart. Okay!

who actually is george ezra anyway? ive seen posters everywhere and see he has two tracks in the top 10 atm.

given the lack of conversation here and going on his name i'm guessing he is dreary and indie

Largely, yes. I liked Budapest at first but it's outstayed its welcome and I don't think I will be able to tolerate it again for quite a while. And his other big track is very dull.

Very little exciting about him as an artist at all, it surprises me how many are buying into a whole album of his stuff because I've heard to nothing to indicate it wouldn't be 45 minutes of drab singer-songwriter indie clichés accompanied by a dull droning voice.
