Dear Nageswar Rao

You can directly drop a mail to google and report about the incident, while dropping such mail to google, do remember to mark a CC copy to the cyber crime cell of your state.

Thus blanketing one self from any consequence arising out the illegal and illegitimate use of your orkut by some person without your knowledge or permission

Thank You

Hallo Octavious, You are right. Rakhi also clicked the point. Both remedies are available to you Mr. Nageswara rao. But see don't send confidential matters like your personal details and family pictures etc in orkut. Orkut is KG business not serious. Any information one passes through may become a total desastress for the orkutarians. So you all tell to your friends relatives and others about this danger.

There is an option to lock certain private section of your profile, why not try that.
