Origin password change
« on: October 24, 2012, 10:01:58 AM »
I got an email last week about my account password being changed on my Origin account.  From doing some minor searching, it appears the account was hacked. First off this is a minor PITA due to having to change the password. Then I realized one thing.  This is a MAJOR PITA because EA is involved.  I cant find support except their forums which are about as helpful as tits on a bull (I will expect a photo of tits on a bull showing up in this post thread at some point).  Has anyone else been through this?  Any suggestions besides EA going bankrupt?

Update on the situation:  I got to a point on the EA site where I could request a call.  The phone number is 855-674-4461.
It turns out that the account was hacked from Ukraine.

You're welcome....

Please just walk away. I don't want to have to stand here and say something so awesome that I'll have to remember it the rest of the day. Thank you!

What if bodies just had random errors like computers do?
You go to receive your Starbucks coffee and accidentally punch the Barista in the face then Crap on the floor.
What kind of Fudgeing computer errors are you getting?
