Well on the bright side, it's not so early in 2017 that the F13 game has dropped yet, so you're not missing out on that. Hopefully your fixes are painless and fast, guy.

Ive also got it ordered for pc so im good to go lol

And i got it back :) didnt take them long at all once i emailed a picture of my license

I'm glad for you.

Just a tip: next time you get an e-mail that is about any of your sensitive info, don't ignore it, but don't click any links in the e-mail either.

Just go straight to the concerning website and check it out. That way you don't risk being fished, but you can still check out the problem.

Like others said, 2 step verification where you can, and it's also smart to use a password manager and let it generate random passwords for you. That way you can't be hacked on other platforms when one of your accounts has been stolen.

Checking the site is exactly what i did i always do or i google what fake email looks like to see if it is a phishing scam as some look close to the real thing. I have now enabled 2 step verification on my paypal and psn since this happened. Also the $80 taken is now back in my bank account so im happy.
