I Have Been Hacked!!!

I sure do wonder how these things happen. This is the first time for me.  Please, if you receive any odd emails from me (someone received one about weight loss) please do not click on any links or think I sent them.  I did not.  I thought something was strange when I tried to get into my account and Yahoo was telling me there had been some unusual activity & I needed to change my password.  You would think people had better things to do.

Oh my goodness. I just wrote a post about hacking. I would definitely remove your email (mailto:) link from your Blogger Profile and everywhere else it is on the web. So sorry this happened to you.

Yes, we would think that! But then again, we are normal, they are not!!
Hope all is well for you now? And not just emailwise. Take care.♥

This happened to me once so now I periodically change my email PW.

I used Yahoo mail for years until I kept getting hacked into. The hackers were using my email account to distribute porn. It even went to my pastor's email, as well as my kids. Even after I changed my password THREE times, I kept getting hacked. So I dumped Yahoo and switched to Google. Not one problem in the past two years.

I seems to be going around.
I was hacked twice in the last month.
I changed my password both times.

I received one of those weird emails from you, it had no subject line and just a link to something about weight lose. I didn't click on it and I deleted it. No harm done.

I am so sorry. I got hacked on, of all places, my facebook page. Took me a while to clean that one up!It made neurotic enough to change all of my password though. It'll be all right. Just make sure you get it all cleaned up or they have a tendency to re-visit.
