Someone trying to log into my account...

I am regularly receiving an email message telling me that my account has been locked because "....someone has tried to log into the account with the wrong password more than 5 times." (complete with IP address of the person trying to log in)

I am not concerned about being locked, the truth is I hardly ever visit the forum anymore. However I am concerned that someone is making repeated attempts to use my account. Is it possible to terminate my account, to shut it down?

Thanks for any help.

Of course, if you PM me I cancel your account.

But I have an idea, if we change your username, anyone who tries it will reach it harder. (I assume who tries not an another MTF user, with your one post it would be hard to imagine.) You just need to post here for the namechange: -the NAMECHANGE thread-

Never ever give up

I received the same message many times. I am not sure if it's because of the app on my tablet.
