Hubby logs into the seized poker sites every couple of weeks or so, just to check on things.

He logged into Full Tilt today and there have been 16+ attempts (with invalid password) to log into his account since around May2nd or 3rd -- the last time he logged in. All from various places.... a few times from somewhere in the US, but most attempts were from foreign countries -- Bulgaria, Romania, Canada, and other weird places I can't remember. I know the places aren't weird, I mean ... that's not where we live.

I find that terribly creepy. Why all the attempts from different countries? Maybe it's coming from a botnet? And why are they all clamoring to get into his account that has maybe all of $40 in it??

Do they want the money? or just access to the account to use it as a 'dump' zone for money laundering... and/or access to his financial info??

It can't be anything good, Mousey. It is a good thing that he has, I would guess, a tough password, which would make the log in immaterial. Things just keep getting stranger and stranger by the day.

Hopefully any more attempts will be blocked also.
