Simple, you gave them your password. the ONLY place you EVER need to enter your password is in the top right corner.
Sorry I Still Dont Understand. How Were They Able To Know I Got Hacked, For The Hacker To Send A PM To Me.

The Password Phishing pm was not sent to you because they knew you're other account had been hacked. It's just a common scam pm that is sent to everyone.

I've received them before. If they see you in the forums, you're a target.

Just report, delete, ignore.
