FaZe Clan’s Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto has seemingly fallen to the same fate as his teammate when it comes to his PSN account’s security but ended up with a different outcome.
ZooMaa’s teammate Dillon ‘Attach’ Price had his PSN account hacked not once, but twice, in the space of a few days and now it looks as if ZooMaa’s account has been compromised too.
Attach, who tweeted out “My PlayStation account just got hacked,” on November 23, lost his account that had reached Master Prestige rank in Multiplayer.
The FaZe Clan Call of Duty professional player was then hacked again on November 25.
The Twitter account who took responsibility for hacking Attach – EBKOwen – tweeted a photo showing ZooMaa’s account with a number of EBKOwen Social Media accounts in the bio.
“Dm for your account back, not resetting you, only prestige 2 Lol,” reads the attached tweet from EBKOwen.
However, a few hours later, ZooMaa took to Twitter to confirm he had his account back, saying: “Thank you @EBKOwen for giving back my account and not resetting me.”

ZooMaa and Attach are not the only FaZe Clan members to have their accounts compromised by this hacker.
FaZe Agony and Testyment also had their accounts hacked by EBKOwen.
Similarly to ZooMaa, Agony was handed back the account without any resets to his multiplayer records.
A few scrolls through EBKOwen’s Twitter shows a number of other notable names seemingly falling victim to this particular hack – including popular rapper Travis Scott and YouTuber RiceGum.
