I believe after 5 attempts of trying to log in but supplying the wrong password, betfair will disable the account. This is pretty much industry standard. Phone them up.

If you can't log in, you won't be able to see recent account logins. So call bf and ask them, and see if they came from your IP address or not.

Account isn't 'closed' it's just suspended.

Most likely someone with a username very like yours mistyped their username as yours and kept typing their password in convinced they were right and the machine was wrong.

Phone (or more conveniently webchat) BF Customer Services and get it reactivated.

I had this a few months ago - strange correlation was that I had recently opened an account at another exchange and I had been using the same username / password combination for both sites (tsk tsk I know ;-)) - Betfair reported that there had been many login attempts from some very strange parts of the world, if I didn't know any better I'd be punting that the other site had someone leaking account info.

I've since closed my account at the other exchange.
