"Basketball Wives" star Tami Roman has gone to the cops ... claiming she's the latest victim of a diabolical internet hacker who managed to hijack her Twitter and e-mail accounts simultaneously. 

Sources close to Tami tell TMZ ... the reality TV star was hacked sometime on Friday night. We're told a friend tipped her off that that someone had  taken over her Twitter account -- which carried 600k plus followers -- and declared himself in charge (below).

According to our sources, the hacker also broke into her email account and changed her personal security questions, as well. We're told Tami has used her email account for 14 YEARS and she's scared to lose a lot of her personal information.

Our sources say Tami reached out to both AOL and Twitter, but didn't receive a response back.

We're told she also reported the cyber-crime to the local New Jersey Police, who are currently investigating the case.

CyberCrime? lol Wow... anyone who has never been pwned needs to...Teaches you how to watch your ass. .wahhh wahhh Get over it and hire somebody if your that scared... Do you really think twitter or aol cares about your e-mails or whatever... go read their TOS- (Terms of Service) I am sure it implicitly states their obligation to care less.

Tami has been a hoodrat since Real World. She's a disgruntled bully. She doesn't need a twitter.

I call such BS on her story. Why on earth would anyone want to HiJack her Twitter and E-Mail accounts if they are going into her computer they are going to get something alot more valuble to them than twitter and E mail. They are going after bank records credit information social security information they would go after real value.

It looks like the same person broke into Michio Kaku's twitter account, which makes me sad. I think he also has an aol email. I haven't heard anything about it other than a few people telling him on his facebook.

Police???? Why would she need the police? She's a badass, took a cast mate purse and wouldn't give it back, sucker punches a cast mate, calls her cast mates out of their name so why would she need the police? Let her find the person/s herself.

Umm, let's see . . . Shootings are rampant in Jersey -- along with rape, murder, home invasions, bank robberies -- and the police are investigating a computer hacking? Okay.
