google … gone …

7 Aug

I have always been pro-google, just loved their innovation and simplicity. When google acquired Blogger, i immidiately shifted my regular a/c to google login id … (simple … 1 less username and password to remember) same i did with the Orkut… I loved the idea of common id for all the accounts …

How wrong i was ? I realised it now …

Some one hacked into my google account. changed my password, primary email address and security question.

And the worst thing … deleted my Orkut account  :(( …

Why would any one do such vicious thing … !!

Thanks to google … i was still able to recover my account … but after paying a very high price … !!

Lesson learned :- never ever merge your accounts … !!

PS :- SAD … 😦 …
