    Did you ever own an I device?
    If so did you properly remove your apple id before selling it?

    Yeah, this is a bit fishy. Are you sure you removed every single property of yours on the iPod, like the ID, and shit?

    "Erase all content and settings" that should have been enough. Did you have iTunes on your pc?

    I had sold my old 3G to a guy in Africa and had do a complete wipe of the phone. He emailed me a few days after he got it and wanted to know the password for my iTunes account some how he had the right email for it and it wasn't the one we used for contact with each other.

    My guess would be that your email was probably still on the phone and the password was something simple or they were able to retrieve your info from the phone some how. If you haven't already you better go change your password.

    When you hover over the iforgot.apple.com link does the link presented match the one claimed? Or does it actually link to something like iforgot.apple.superclick.b*star.hackmequick1554.com?

    The site it directs you to is Apple-certified, but double-check if it is on your end in case you're infected with anything that might re-direct you (take note of your browser's address bar - on Chrome it'll even show you the exact certificate). It would seem that someone used your Apple ID - no more, no less. Not necessarily a hacking matter if you left it saved on your iPod before selling it.
