All the replies make good points. Question - how do we know which is
the real Mysteriousflyer, or if there are even 2?
The latest one hasn't responded how or w/ what he was accessing his
Gmail acct. Sometimes from public wifi? There are too many unanswered
questions & variables.
Has he checked for key loggers or trojans, that could capture his PW?
One simple way hackers get a PW.

Ummmmm. I am the REAL mysteriousflyer@xxxxxxxxxx I guess it's
super-duper easy for a person's user names and passwords to get
hacked when accessing e-mail over Tor. I also noticed that
someone has been reading my gmails (since they were marked as
read), so I changed my password over there and will never access
gmail through Tor again. Someone ALSO made a copy of my debit
card and tried to use it in another state, but that may be
coincidence. Does anyone have any knowledge as to HOW a hacker
may get this information? Is it through an exit server? I
certainly never made any online purchases through Tor.
Or he just ignored the SSL warning like so many people do.
He didn't answer if always used encrypted connection to Gmail, or - as
mentioned - if ever got a security warning & ignored it. Don't know
about Gmail, but some providers still allow clients to use unencrypted
If uses a laptop / phone, has he ever left it alone, while logged into
Gmail, or PWs are unsecured? If uses an email client, are stored login
/ SMTP PWs secured w/ reasonably strong PW, or are they stored
unprotected? Many other factors.
