Happened to me. Good thing EA was able to get my account back.

I would have just let the hijacker have it, besides, what did you have on your account.....Medal of Honor? Stick with Steam, or stick it in your rear!

Haha true that. I havent logged on Origin in months. I installed it to play BF3, once i was done with that, that was it Origin hasnt been used in a long time.

I do stick with Steam. In fact the only thing I'd use would be Steam if EA released BF3 on it. But alas thing only thing I could do was use Origin for BF3. I'm pretty burnt out on BF3 also, but I did spend money for it, so shouldn't I be at least a bit worried if it got stolen?

I have too many game on Origin to just cancel it. However Origin was nice enough to let me use my key codes from Steam, direct 2 drive and Impulse driven and put them on Origin service.
