yes i have lost money in e-gold, about 150$, but it was due to my fault only, was using the same eg password which i use on the money making sites, wasn't blocking the ips and hence when i got a payout from 12dailypro.com (a money making site closed now) at about 4 am in the morning, and when i checked my account at 5 am in the morning with a smile on my face as i was going to withdraw that money, it all changed to a great shock, somebody logged into my account, transferred the money to his account and left the damn 1 cent, wanna say abusive words but dont wanna dirty my mouth, after that i put my e-gold account with all ips block all browser block, each time you login you have to fill up the pin, and since then my e-gold is safe, once a time someone got a chance to login into my a/c as he was knowing my e-gold password, but since he doesnt know my e-mail password, hence he was unsucessfull in his attempt, so if you want to be safe then do what i have done

E-gold payments are final, non reversible, so lost is lost! Read these 2 discussions carefully! E-gold security is the number one issue! http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/447072.aspx http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/441238.aspx

Sounds very horrible! And no, I never have been hacked at e-gold paypal or so. I think its better to use a password no one could know! I would turn mad when this would happen to me, and I hope it got be solved very fast!

That is just normal. It happened to me twice in the same week, I contacted them and they did nothing. Until today I slightly suspect that e-gold is guilty for that. I heard in foruns taht many people had the problem, every year there are thousands of dollars hacked, isn't this strange. Beware e-gold users
