|I feel so violated...

So, I logged into my Neopets account yesterday and discovered that someone had hacked into my account and stole about two years worth of savings I had from my bank. I could've sworn that I had a pin number that kept things like this from happening, but I guess not everything's foolproof. :(
Anyways, I sent a message to the Neopets staff to let them know what happened and then I changed my password and pin number, just in case. This morning, just about a half hour ago, after I got home from work, I found out that they froze my account (surprise, surprise) due to suspicious activity, so I filled out a form and sent it back to them to request that they unfreeze my account, due to the suspicious activity not being my fault. I know that it's a rare thing for Neopets to unfreeze accounts, but I'm hoping they'll believe my case and return my account to me.
Anyways, thanks for listening. I'm completely grateful that this isn't a case of someone hacking into my ACTUAL bank account, or something really bad like that, but this whole situation still has me unnerved. I had been saving up to buy a Transmogrification Potion, and I was about two months away from reaching my goal...
ETA: On a completely different note, I love the new layout of this journal. Well done!
