Update!
For the past 2 days, I have been deleting e-mails, contacts, and making new passwords.
I was stunned to hear that some of you were still getting e-mails from me. So today, I have been on the phone with my tech guys for 2 hours. They checked my entire computer and said it is fine. They said someone "Spoofed" me. Please read, if you don't know what I am talking about. I have never heard about this before, so I read it too.

Basically, they are imitating to be me. How they got my address, was either I clicked on something I shouldn't have (I really don't think I did), or you know when people forward things (with a lot of names), and your name is on the list, it could have happened through that.

This is going to keep happening, until they stop! Sorry my friends! Please, may I ask to keep me updated. You don't have to e-mail me every day, but if it's still happening in like a month from now, I would really like to know! Thanks in advance!

I have to get my Norton Anti Virus updated, either this week or next. When that happens, I will let you know, because I usually leave my laptop at the shop, for the guys to do.

I'm behind in blogging again! LOL! Promise to be around soon!

Big Hugs!!!

  1. I'm sorry this is happening to you. Some people have nothing better to do than hack people's accounts. Have you changed your passwords? ♥

  2. Don't feel bad, it's happened to quite a few popular bloggers that i follow. I've been getting hit by Russian and Chinese hackers for almost a month. It's infuriating. Sending love.

  3. I get those from people I know all the time. But I don't click on links in emails.
    It's too risky.
    Hope things are back to normal soon.

  4. I'm glad I haven't got one yet! Sometimes people can also make an email the same as yours but with a dot or dash to fool people! At least it's all just scamming, not trying to really steal your identity! Must be frustrating! Hope it stops soon!

  7. I got one too, but didn't mention it because it wasn't your email address. Nothing you can really do about it until they find another name &/or address. This has happened to me also a few times... drives one nuts!

  8. I hope this stops soon Stacy! I always feel sad for those jerks who have nothing better to do with their time. They must be really boring people who tamper with others' e-mails!

  9. Grr. I hate it when hackers steal passwords and other info and do things under your email. There should be a special place for people like that. I hope they stop soon.

    I had a problem with my email and Facebook being hacked years ago. I did research on it and found out they have technology to see your password when you type it, so I've been copying (from a Word doc) and pasting my passwords into everything for a few years now. Haven't had a problem since.

  10. I am so sad that this happened to you! There are good people out there and there are not so good. Some are here to make others' lives enjoyable and less stressful, others are here to create havoc. I hope this will not spoil your blogging and internet experience, and I hope that this will not happen again.

  11. I'm sorry this happened to you. I hope it winds itself down soon. I once clicked on something I shouldn't have in an email and I had similar troubles, but they did stop at some point. I hope yours stop too.

  15. I am really sorry this is happening to you, Sweetie.
    It is so easy to click on something by mistake. I did this once, an it led to an ongoing problem - unwanted emails etc., too. They did eventually stop though, after I just kept transferring them to trash.
    Of course it could be a hacker picking up your password. I have been copying mine onto a memory stick, and entering it from there.
    You can never be too careful...

    Oh I do so hope you get it sorted real soon...these things are such a pain.:(

    Lots of Love & Hugs xoxoxo

  16. I'm so sorry this has happened to you. It's a scary how easily someone can pretend to be you and make it believable. However, I did not receive an email from you.

  17. Woah that sounds like something that could really cause some damage :-O imagine a person pretending to be 'your partner' telling you they cheated on you or something... scary thing - i hope this will stop soon <3

  18. Sorry for all your computer issues. I don't understand why this happens sometimes. Hopefully you will get it cleared up soon!
