Well, I’ve heard many times of it happening to other people. Today it happened to me.
My email account was somehow compromised. All of my emails, my contact list, drafts, and folders were erased (or taken).
From what I can tell by a back up account that I have, is that all of my contacts received a bogus email from me stating that I was travelling out of the country and was mugged and need money to get back home.
All of it is of course untrue.
I’m safe and sound and right here in Wisconsin where I belong. So to any of you who may have received an email stating otherwise.. please do not respond.
I’m so sorry for any concern that it may have caused. I’ve reported the compromise to Yahoo and have changed passwords, etc.
Stay safe out there in internet land.
