Hi @frost6k,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community. I'd be happy to provide some insight on how we can help in this situation.


If you have no affiliation with the shop mentioned above and believe they are using Shopify as a platform, I'd encourage you to fill out our Report An Issue Form. This will allow our team to investigate further and take any necessary actions. 


Alternatively, if you believe your own shop was hacked I'd encourage you to Contact Us directly.

This will allow our advisor team to take a closer look and ensure it's resolved as quickly as possible. To connect with us, you can follow this link


Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
