Warning !!!!

Hello Peeps !!!

Not so Happy Friday !!!

I was trying to open my e-mail today and I could not get in. A good friend called me earlier today and gave me the heads up of what the letter contained. I am so thankfulof the call an I am checking in to it.
WARNING !!!! If you received a WEIRD E-MAIL me asking for money, that is a SCAM. Please IGNORE it. I will never ask of anything like that. I am not even sure how something like this can happen.  I am posting this on my blog because I know I have readers that will read it since I am trying to establish a new e-mail account.

Thanks so much for your support.

This has happened to me before- the scammers have gained access to your email account & changed the address of where any replies are sent so you'll never know who has responded. If you contact your email provider, they will help you to sort this out pretty quickly. If you ignore it & simply open a new account elsewhere, they might continue to abuse your old account as they have access to all your contacts! Hope you get this sorted!

I got the same email and it looks like you are the victim of a malware scam. You need to contact your email provider and ask them to help you solve this problem. Also consider installing security software on your computer. Symantec or Trend Micro or others are a few that provide this service. This info is from my husband, as I was worried for you and chatted with him about it.
So sorry you had to be invaded like this. Good luck!

Hi Chat - I did recieve your email and thought that it might be a scam! That's so terrible. I just wanted to check in as I've sent in payment for the perfectly preserved tutorial. No rush...I just wanted to check that you received it.
Cheers

If you keep the same account and want to make sure your email password reduce the chance that your email account is hacked again, reset your password with letters that do not form any words. For example, think of a sentence that has meaning to you and use the first letter of every word in that sentence - for example: You are my one and only forever....then add an underscore line and a number so your password would be yamoaof_3

Received one of those emails and knew instantly it had to be a scam. Couldn't imagine any SU demonstrator sending a blanket email like that.

Glad you realized it happened. I got the email just before going on vacation. I tried emailing you not even thinking you may have shut the email down. Hope you get it straightened out. Please email me your new email address when you get it. Merry Christmas.
