you should cancel the subscriptions and tell them to make new accounts and tell them to be more careful

Keyloggers or they had no numbers in their password. Most likely its a program that just gets a name and guesses likely words over and over. The more personal your password the safer it is. Go with something such as their godparents first name last name initial and their lucky number for their password much better and no way its able to guess so an example (completly made up) jacksonp14 (jackson first name last name 1st letter is p lucky number 14) if this password was guessed by a computer i'd be surprized otherwise its a keylogger or they gave it out

Some site offer autobuyers (like for Neopets) or snipers (for auctions and games) and they aren't what they seem. You can check the task manager to see if anything obvious is running there or the download log. Best advice is to run some sptware and see what it comes up with.

i offer to give you one of my acct in runescape as i have 15 accts that i created over the past 2 years of playing. 1)i believe you must have download some programs that send your password to hackers 2) or you may have imnputyour password at other sites 3) maybe your pc has virus 4) maybe you have spyware on it try getting free programs at http://www.downloads.com to eradicate your problems or you may like to do a backup on your PC and format the drive. That will sure do the trick my runescape site is at http://www.loveposture.com/1
