    I am not in this part of forum very often so only just seen your thread.
    Send a PM to one of the PG team. Start typing PG and a list appears. Give them all the information and see what they say.

It is NOT a one size fits all. I am still having fun.

    The same thing happened to me, and their IP address also linked back to China, same person I'm guessing. I wouldn't worry about it, nothing has happened since and I can still successfully log into my account. The worst the person could do is change your password and you'd have to make a new account.

    It's really irritating if someone try to hack anyone account. Report or have this IP Address blacklisted.

    and with a new account you would not be able to access games until they were all manually migrated for you.

    I don't think this is about the PG ID. And simply choosing the "forgot my password" option should allow you to change a password, a hacker/spambot couldn't do that and it's not their intention.

    Those spammers that create an account and start to contact formers via pm are worse than this.

    Same thing happened to me this past weekend. I have the IP address but don't know how to figure out where it is linked to. Another person in my guild also reported getting an email about this same problem from PG. What is up with this?? Why would someone do that? It's weird, no?

    I got the same message from PocketGems on april 4th 2015. But on my request how to solve these attaques or blocked these IP-adresses, I got no answer!
    Contact is no longer possible with PocketGems, so how do I solve this now?
    Anyone? Thanks!
