    Default Someone hacked my Google Play Developer Account

    One of my applications has disappeared from my developer account, and applications from other publishers have appeared under my developer account. However these are absent from my developer console so I cannot remove them.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of how I should approach this situation? I've already changed my gmail password, but I have SMS verification enabled so I would have received a text if my gmail was compromised, maybe this person hacked Google's Play database directly? My app had some popular keywords so this could be the work of a bot.

    I am sure you'd have remembered the security questions and answers ?? I am afraid if you don't then it would be too much ..... to get the access back over to your account.
