    Contact Google on your real email and explain the situation (as you can't obviously contact them on the fake one)

    They will have a log of previous e-mail accounts associated with the account. E-mail them with and request for the account back. Explain everything.

    They'll just ask you about all the information you provided on signup form and about one or more checks (or eft transfers). At least they did so when a friend of mine lost his account in the same way as you did.

    Someone hacking an account cannot change manually the email, not even the owner.

    At least inside my AdSense CP says that you need to contact them to get it changed.

    If that ocurred, Google knows the email from where the change request was made.

    How does hacking your server lead to him having access to your Adsense account? I would think Google would have tougher security measures than your host, whoever he is.

    saadahmed007, please tell us how the hacker did it. Did he guess your password ? I mean you cant change anything without the password.

    You should not have saved the password in a file on your server. You should have it on your local machine.

    Well he must have logged into your adsense account email because as previously mentioned, you cannot change the email from inside your account. If thats the case, why are you using the same password for everything and why the hell are you storing it online? Its really not that difficult to remember passwords and if you really must, pen and paper is much more secure. I really have no sympathy for anyone that works like that, its just a timebomb waiting to go off.

    Who saves ALL of his passwords in a single file and puts it up on a server that he doesn't have immediate and physical access to? I'm sorry, but that's just stupid.

    I agree. Probably it is best to keep your password at an easily accessible place. For example, you can post all your login ids and passwords here on DP. That way, any of us can help you retrieve it whenever you like. :D
