    Do a Google search for your PIN#. If it is posted here, let a mod know so they can remove it if you didn't post it.

    Other than that I don't think there's much you can do about it besides declining requests...

    The only thing I could think of is that your PIN is similar to a PIN that belongs to somebody in a BBM group that might have posted his/her PIN. So people might want to join the group and type your PIN by mistake if one number or letter is wrong.

    In that case it would be easy for someone to just type in a bunch of numbers and get your PIN, similar to cracking a password that is not complex enough. Unfortunately, there is not much you can do, since the PIN cannot be changed, unlike a password.

    If it's coming from the same PIN, then just block it.
