    My friends account on hotmail was hacked by this goon. We filed a complaint to msn, she got her account back, she informed the police about it and what he was wanting her to do, to get her account back.
    you guys got any ideas on what could happen to this person?

    Most probably nothing.

    Toasted is right. Police usually don't handle internet stuff like that except for say child molestation/rape cases in which most likely the FBI would get involved.

    I see. Thats a shame, this guy thinks he is so clever at hacking. He needs sorting out!

    So what'd he do? Just hack into the account and start sending her friends love letters or something?
  6. The only charge would be invasion of privacy, but since they aren't going to look for him, I'd suggest she get another mail account, possibly Gmail or something.
  7. That sucks. If she wants a gmail account I have a few invites left and would send her one. Just pm me if interested.
