Hackers!!!!!!!!!

PROBLEM FIXED!!  I changed my password and just deleted all contacts.  That way no one will receive anymore of these annoying emails.  I appologize for this.  Very frustrating!

******************

I just received several calls and emails that MY EMAIL ACCOUNT has been hacked and several "trash emails" have been sent out.  Please DO NOT OPEN them as they might contact virus'.  I don't know how to fix this so if anyone has any suggestions, I'd so appreciate your advise. 

Thanks and have a great Friday!

  1. A little late, I just opened one before checking dashboard, I was wondering why? you woould send me that email> I thought you were trying to tell me something. I hope it does not have a V. That's all I need. Thanks, Richard from My Old Historic House.

  2. my Yahoo account was hacked earlier this week! I deleted that account/address and created a new account...what a mess! I felt like I needed a "new beginning" with them so as not risk getting hacked with my old account again.

    Whoever is doing this needs a life!

    Good luck,

  3. Sadly that happens to everyone. Changing your password should do the trick. I was SO embarrassed when my email got hacked. I had a lot of business contacts on it, like the mayor, city council members, the police chief, etc. One of my Japanese dealers just laughed and said, "are you now selling vigra"! No fun.

    Take care, Sue

  4. Thanks for the heads up! I read your post before checking my mail, and just deleted it. It's the last thing anybody needs! I'm so sorry. Have fun at the shows for me!

  5. I opened my email before I read your post, i realized right away that it wasn't really from you, and immediately changed my password, so far everything seems to be okay. Don't people have better things to do than ruin other people's email? It's terrible that you had to deal with that.

  6. Oh Theresa this happened to me last year! I was beside myself thinking about how many people would get hacked because of me. People were getting e-mails about Jeep cars. At least it wasn't Viagra!lol! I just waited it out and things were fine after a couple of weeks. I changed my e-mail to another carrier for a short while and then went back to AOL after the dust settled.

  7. Hi Teresa...
    I did get one of those emails from you. All it had attached was a video of some kind. I kept trying to open it thinking maybe it was a video of one of your latest shows. My computer wouldn't let me open it & I was getting annoyed...now I'm GLAD it didn't get open. I agree, I HATE it when someone gets a hold of one of your accounts & starts sending malware out with it.
    Thanks for letting us know...
    Hugs & I hope you find a solution!

  9. Have you seen what is being sent? I've gotten several as well. Funny thing is, I can't find your email in my address book so I'm not sure how THEY got it. I had this going on for well over a month with emails coming to me with my son's email address. They finally went away. Sorry this has happened to you. It's so frustrating because people get mad at you when you had nothing to do with it. - Patty @ Sisters Antiques.

  10. So sorry this is happening to you. I've been getting several emails with your address as the sender, but haven't opened them. Weird, I can't find you in my address book so I'm not sure how THEY found it. This happened a few months ago... tons of emails with my son's address on them and he said he didn't send them. It took a while, but they finally went away. Have you sent out a mass email to people in your address book? Biggest problem I see is that people get mad because they do think it's YOU sending stuff... Have you seen any of these? Good luck.

  11. I have gotten two emails which said they were from you. I clicked on it from my iphone but it didn't do anything - I hope. It didn't look like it was from you! Was coming to ask if it was from you and got my answer! I noticed that there were a couple of peeps I know so I will call them and let them know.
