Account hacked?

When I log in using my iphone app through facebook, it takes me to an account that is completely blank.  All my playlists are gone, my saved songs are gone, all the people I follow are gone.  It doesn't have my name, just username XXXXX.


Then, when I use my username and password to log in, there's someone else's name and music saved in my account in addition to mine!  Someone named Micah Johnson.  I cannot change the name and this person has been trying to listen to music at the same time as me all day.  My playlists are all there as well as my saved music.

 

I changed my password a few times and signed all devices out, but the other user was still getting on.  I then changed my facebook password, that seems to have kicked him off for now.  But his name is still on my account.

 

What happened here and how do I get his name off my account?

I did log an issue, case #02691137, but have not heard anything.  The user has logged on again so nothing I've done has worked.

Be sure that you reply to the automated e-mail if you haven't already.

 

Spotify does usually respond within 24-48 hours.

Hi, I've been emailing Spotify and they have not been able to help me with this issue and they are not quick to respond back.  The last they emailed me was Sunday, I immediately replied back that I had done all they had suggested and I was still having this problem.

 

Any way you can help me come to resolution on this quickly?  This issue has been open for 5 days now!

Hi, I have read the email and performed the actions they suggested, but I still have an issue.  While my account on the website is not  linked to a facebook account, in the Spotify app, my account is linked to a facebook account.  I deleted the app and reinstalled it, but still have the same issu.

 

The issue is still not resolved.
