Hmm... I would of given you a "cool story bro", but I hate it when people post that s***!

Be careful with what information you share on the internet. Social engineering is really easy to do. It's just a matter of knowing the person, whether it's by name or something personal like school or location.

Also, you could have a keylogger on your PC. Use anti-virus software on a regular basis. I had my PayPal account phished a few months back. Scary experience.

If the hacker was any good he would have changed the alternate e-mail, so he was obviously unskilled.

You weren't hacked nor did someone target just you. You either typed your information into a phisher (fake login) or you have malware on your computer.

This is a common occurrence. You've got keyloggers or you were phished. Possibly RAT'd. Hard to tell, try following my tutorial on how to clean up your computer.
