In Hotmail they have a setting to allow you to copy all email to another email account. This is like a forward except you never see it.  So the word here is if you have a Hotmail account or any other online email account from time to time go through your settings and options, check the defaults and make sure you recognize phone numbers and email addresses that are set for backup communications. If these are changed then the hacker may be getting the same information you are trying to prevent them from having access too.
