The hacker is dming me, pretending to be you, and is making up a story about how they got robbed, and are directly asking me for money.
What do I do?!!

Well for starters, you could do absolutely nothing.

How am I supposed to DM you if I don't know if I can even use that account anymore?

I said to make a new account.
Also, do you know who hacked you? How you got hacked?

If the hacker was not so thorough they might have not changed your email address, so you could just request a password reset and take it back.

Otherwise, maybe Discord support could help in some way?

I did that. However, I will have to set up 2fa to protect it further.

UPDATE: I did it.
