I was wondering why you sent me that email about meeting a Nigerian businessman with 7million US that you would let me have if I gave you my credit card and bank account information….darn…and I already had it spent….Oh well….guess I’ll have to answer the one from the Nigerian Doctor that needs my account to collect his 16 million in lottery winnings….I just don’t understand why there are all these people complaining about the bad economy when here on the internet there is so much money being given away?

Seriously, as Ellen has so succintly put it…that does stink. Be careful of your personal information and passwords….they can have them reset and sent to a new email or could have seen them on your old account. I would recommend that you reset all your passwords along with your email account.

My daughter in Ecuador got hacked. I got an email from “her” (her email addy) with a sob story about getting mugged in New Wales UK(about a half world from her) and “she” needed money wired to her. I knew it was a fake from the get go..she would have called not sent an email. She was already aware of a problem and was addressing it with yahoo.
I think it was Nigerians(so does yahoo).
I know it’s virtually impossible to trace these things but they would be better off with yahoo catching them than me! I’m not very broad minded about things like that.
Anyway,hope you get it straightened out.
