Public Service Announcement

Well, this was fun.

A pretty skilled hacker managed to send out this email to hundreds of people, if not more.

Relatives have been calling wanting to send money.  Friends and step-fathers of friends and cousins and business contacts and only Lord knows who else think I'm penniless in the Ukraine.

Why can't I do anything normally?  Does anyone else get hacked to this degree?

Side note:  My email is locked for an unknown period of time and I lost all my contacts.  If you need me, text or call.  :)

Well it's not very nice they referred to you as "my sorry self." Hackers are so rude.

Good point! Maybe I should go after them for pain and suffering? That was rude.

I was hacked one time and had a similar e-mail sent out to all my contacts. A former boss contacted my mother at work and offered to send whatever amount was needed to help me out. I was grateful, but embarrassed.

Oh no!! I have heard of that scam before but have never had it happen to me. Sorry :(
