So Mojang was able to solve the problem, and I now have my account back safe and sound.

Just thought this advice would help you and others:

It's good to change your password for both your mojang account and the password for your email address. Make sure that you don't use the same minecraft password for any minecraft-related sites. If I would take a good guess, all these reports of minecraft players being 'hacked' are because they use the same password on other minecraft sites which are far more insecure.

 

If you find yourself to be quite a computer competent person and know your way around tech, I suggest you use the chrome extension - LastPass

 

The website explains what it is pretty well, but I can summarise by saying it:

 

Encourages you to use unique passwords for every site you login

Remembers all website accounts you have, both email and password

Makes it more convenient to login with auto-fill

Allows you to store secure notes, so it saves you leaving paper and files around your home with secure info

All secure information is stored on your device, accessible from that device. LastPass servers don't hold that information.

Warns you of breaches, encourages you to change the password as soon as possible.

Always question whatever you do, actions with good intentions can cause something dangerous, unpleasant or inconvenient to happen. Accept that we all make mistakes but most importantly, learn and never repeat them.

 

See someone make a mistake? Worst thing you could do is express anger or frustration to others. It leaves you embarrassed, shameful and bitter. Keep calm and ask yourself and others "Anything you could have done to prevent this mistake?".

Be a part of the solution, not the problem.
