PostSubject: Someone hacked my email, what do i do?   Sat Mar 19, 2011 12:34 pm

Someone sent an email of a nature I wish not to discuss to all of my email contacts. What should I do? My mother sent me "Why would you send this to me?" when she received it so others have to think it was me that sent it as well.
I don't want to change my email. Do you think changing the password will be sufficient? I am hoping that this was a one time event.

I'm sorry to hear that, Joe. No Changing your password should do the trick. That happened to my brother once last year. He changed his password, and so far nothing else like that has happened. You shouldn't have to start a new email account.

I got a rather shocking email from my youngest daughter, which was also sent to all her contacts. I asked her about it and her account had been hacked. She changed her password and nothing else has been sent.

Change your password is what I recommend.

Yes. I experienced just the same awful thing...I changed my password and all was O.K. I'm wondering why some people does this kind of idiotic "jokes" No .

I'm a member of an historic board on the net, and some hacker took the name of a nice, sweet Russian Orthodox girl who is one of the most particpant members of it, sending all of people from there, a P.M, apparently by her . When the other members opened it, it was an awful porn pic. I warned the site owner and he could end with this trouble. But the poor girl was very ashamed and mortified thinking that some people could have thought it was her who send this awful pic. banghead
