    Um,

    K, so they 'hacked' your email on facebook. I assume you mean they were able to coopt your facebook email. If so, how, does that now provide them the logon credentials for all the forums you belong to? Or, for that matter WHAT forums you belong to. Are you saying that this is the email account that you registered/associated with all of your various forum accounts? Hard to believe, but okay. So, are you then saying that they then had passwords sent for these forums to the email id associated, aka your facebook email? How did they know what forums you belong to? Why didn't the change those forum passwords.

    Something doesn't quite add-up here, sorry.

    Seems like maybe you used a public computer or similar, and didn't clean your cookies etc, log-off etc, and this is how this happened (assuming it did).
