it happened to me but all they did was take my address and send an email trying to sell stuff. No virus.......lucky I guess
this can also be identity theif
also yes it is a virus that has taken your address and send emails in your name. It will be hiding in your computer. I hope you have searched for it and that you are not doing internet banking or it could go there too.
It always seems the lousiest things happen to the nicest people. Hang in there Cutie. We're all here for you and know that you would never do such a mean trick. Sure hope who ever did it gets theirs. SOON! Hugs ***
yes what goes around comes around thats for sure. I just hope nothing bad happens to anyone.
o sorry to hear about your e-mail problems Sandra, hope you get it solved soon :0)
ttt, this is important
Sandra, do you know where the virus came from? I am so sorry this happened to you! I have a separate e-mail account just for embroidery-related things, at Yahoo. If anything happens to it, I don't lose much. You might consider something like this, if you are accepting forwarded e-mails from people. A lot of viruses are in those forwards. I have them blocked on my real e-mail, anything with fw or fwd in the subject line is just deleted from the server and I never see it. I hope you get this squared away, and get your information back. Wish people would find better things to do with their time, sigh, like get a job? If all these hackers would work for NASA, we'd have a colony on Mars by now! Grr. Hugs for you, Marji
I dont open forward emails very much I havent got the time to sit and read them and they just build up. This time I dont want to get any of them only emails chatting with my embroidery friends. I have unsubscribed to many sites as well that I was on before so this should be better too. This is the second time it has happened so I am not taking any chances of it happening again. Thanks for your thoughts. Hugs Sandra. P.S. when I organise it I will be known as Sweetpea and not Sanjoy51. so I will see you in the garden of flowers. lol. Sandra
I had that to happened to me before me. Everyone on my list knew my character so they knew I didn't send those e-mails *2U
yes a lot of my friends knew it wasnt me and I even had a fraud resercher for the police send me an email to tell me they thought I had a virus, because she was on my list as well along with many police officers and government dept. so they will get a shock. My good friends let me know as well. Its horrible when it happens. The only thing I have is the emails that had been sent and I am going through them and getting all the addresses that way in the hope to keep it safe and not search for any, just incase I have missed something on the computer and it is waiting for me to do that to trigger off again. You wouldnt know. I hope you can get all yours back too. Good luck with yours. Sandra
What a worry...hope it doesn't cause you too much stress....Have a good day.
Stress is not the word, I feel violated as they not only wiped my messenger and my contacts in my emails but they wiped out all my sent emails as well.
That's strange as I recently lost all my sent emails in Outlook but Norton's hasn't picked up any viruses and nothing else has happened.
Hugs n roses, M
yes my virus scan said that there was no virus and neither did windows defender, but when I ran a-squared it found it attached to an application I had recently downloaded. It's gone now but worry it will find its way back.
