    Figured I'd warn any of you guys who use NEWEGG. I've used them for
    many years. Just before Christmas my account was accessed, my address
    changed and an order was made so the have been hacked. Newegg appears to
    be spinning it as a fishing email on Facebook which was not the case for me.
    Quite disappointing they have not warned their customers properly and is
    handling this poorly!

    There is a running thread on slick deals.

    I would login change your password and at least delete any saved
    payment info :sigh: for safety's sake..

    If an account was hacked into does not necessarily mean that the Newegg's security was breached. We researched this internally and we confirmed that our data security has not been breached or compromised.

    Please know that we are here to help! Please email us to Wecare@newegg.com and we will be happy to further review the account details.
