Is it possible that someone could hack into an email account (without changing your passwords), send and recieve emails from your hotmail account while making it look like it came from your IP address, set up fake dating site profiles in your name (with all of your details, photographs etc) , and somehow managed to hack into your bank accounts and paid for these profiles on line with your money, quite possibly for the last 2 years without your knowledge? Someone claims to have had this happened to him. Says that the hacker has accessed his information through the use of a R.A.T Trojan, and that hotmail gave him this information.
If this is true then this would be some kind of personal attack, not just some random hacker looking for kicks would it not?
And is it possible that microsoft or hotmail would even bother to look into this for him? And if so would they ever send him pictures of what this hacker may have used on these profiles. ie pictures of other people (possibly used on the profiles), or of other dating site members the hacker may have contacted. Would this not be against their privacy laws?
I have the email source files from an email he claims a hacker sent to somebody else. All IP addresses in the recieved headers belong to hotmail or microsoft. The X originating IP address belongs to the "victim". Can this be forged and is there anyway of being able to tell if it had. All dates in the headers seem to match also. (ie gmt time in recieved header matches x original arrival time when converted to australian time)
