"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.

Going to the police over having a twitter account hacked? This is an everyday occurance for celebs on that site. Dancing with the Stars pro dancer Chelsie Hightower had her twitter, email, facebook and credit cards taken over during the spring season of the show. Had charges on her card from all over the world. THAT is something you involve the police in. Not this crap.

O I thought where she came from they didn't go to the cops, they handle their own business. At lease that what she told Keisha when she call the cops on tami. She also said she don't sue ppl when Jen was gonna sue but she was gonna sue Evelyn.

Are you serious, Tami? You're the victim? That’s right continue to rack up points on the least likely to maintain success meter. You bout as dumb as they come!!! Shawnie gave you your 5 minutes and you single handedly managed to further assassinate your broke down, thirsty micro-braids, mad cause I never got a champion ship ring, lack there of, character. Now you've confirmed to the world your status of being a complete loser. Who could forgive such heinous cruel act such as what you did to that poor girl. Thanks for destroying the already damaged perception of African American women. Truth be told, you're jealous, because after all the cosmetic surgery procedures you remain funny shaped, and burley. Do yourself a favor and refrain from walking next to Evelyn because doing so you flaws are magnified. You're just as dusty today as you were the day you were introduced on the show. Why don’t you crawl back under the rock your baby-daddy left you under!!!
