    Hi,

    My account has been used by somebody, don't know who it is for sure to post messages and opinions and general trash that I don't believe/wouldn't post.

    What can I do about it to get my posts deleted etc since I no longer have the password for my account? Should I just report the posts and get them deleted that way, or could a moderator do it for me?

    Thanks

    You can delete your posts using the "Edit" button that appears below your posts. You can change your password here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/prof...o=editpassword and if you don't know your current password, the login page allows you to request a password reset.

      1. Contact the administrator, and prove who you are. Get that account back somehow, and then see if there's a way to track who took control of your account.

      2. Apply the Computer Misuse Act here.

      3. ?

      4. Profit!
