Hack JOb!

I just wanted to slip in and apologize to everyone who may have received an email from me saying that I needed money.....  I just want to reassure you all that I am fine....and this wasn't really from me!

My email was HACKED....all my contacts stolen!  I'm so sorry to have your Inbox be filled with this trickery!  It makes me so mad and sad at the same time!
I just wanted to make you aware that I was contacted by what I thought was Yahoo earlier today asking me to login again....turns out this was not Yahoo and how the sneaky a**holes got me :(

I am in the process of trying to restore everything that was taken, including old saved emails....so bear with me if I haven't responded to a message you may have sent me...

Here's to brighter tomorrows,
Cameron

Hello Cam
I received a bogus email from you, but I knew straight away without a doubt, it wasn't really you.
I bet you are fuming!!
Take care dear friend and sending you lots of love and light for a brighter tomorrow.
Big hugs

No worries sweetie!!

Here is a copy of the bogus email being sent out in case anyone wants to read it......

__________________________________
Hope you get this on time, I made a trip to Swansea,Wales and had my bag stolen from me with my passport and credit cards in it. The embassy is willing to help by letting me fly without my passport, I just have to pay for a ticket and settle Hotel bills. Unfortunately for me, I can't have access to funds without my credit card, I've made contact with my bank but they need more time to come up with a new one. I was thinking of asking you to lend me some quick funds that I can give back as soon as I get in. I really need to be on the next available flight.


I can forward you details on how you can get the funds to me. You can reach me via email or on Blue Island hotel front desk phone, the numbers are, +447024012340 or +447031804806.

I await your response

Regards
Cam

I got the same one as Micki. But I'm used to it by now since it's been going around for a while now. :) It's good you told us how you got it, Cam. I'll pay attention to such mails. Thanks!

Yahoo accounts have been getting hacked left and right; I had one friend who had hers hacked twice, so thinking they should upgrade their firewalls....yeah?
Knew it was bogus.
No worries.
Hope you can get everything repaired and new passwords, etc set.

XXOO~~

I didn't think it was you - didn't read like you and I'm *almost* sure you woulda told me if you were coming to the UK :P Kind of threw me that it was signed by you - they are getting craftier and craftier these hackers! I had emailed to let you know but am guessing you are getting lots of those emails! My Facebook was hacked last week though they never did anything with my account. These people need to get themselves a life methinks.

Big hugs x x x

Yes, I got this email from 'you', but I knew right off that it was fake, because my sister went thru this same thing. It's awful! I didn't even open it. My sister's email had her husbands name in it and all kinds of personal info. Be careful everyone. If you ever get one from me, please know it's not for real.

I just sent you an email regarding this but it looks like you already know!
I had one of my email accounts hacked last year and I had no idea until hotmail shut down my account! What a pain.

JessiVille said...

Hi Cam, Just dropped by to make sure you were aware. I knew it wasn't you! I'm sorry you are having to deal with this mess. Hope things get back to normal for you soon!
Hugs, Jessi xox

Jennifer said...

Yup! I too came over here to let you know I thought you'd been hacked. What meanies on the internet. I knew it wasn't you. Obviously... why would you be in Wales... ;)

ArtSings1946 said...

I just joined and didn't get anything ... whew! What a bummer.

Happiness to all.

Raven Moon Magic said...

I so knew it wasent you, You used the word "kind regards" and there were no kisses or hugs and I know that if you were asking for money you would sign your name Cammywammydooodle anyway!

hope you sort that shiznit out!
and its a pity you didnt get the holiday to Wales ; )

iamrushmore said...

i woke up all excited to see I had email from you and then.....
Hackers suck. but you don't.

Manon said...

I nearly send you some money in that easter egg bag. You are on for that sawp! I ll speak to you soon

Zorana said...

They suck! I knew it wasn't from you and felt bad that your mail was hacked. I hope yahoo people will be helpful in resolving it. Sorry that it happened to you. Hugs

Faerie Moon Creations said...

That is just awful! I did receive the email, but I knew it was not you. Thanks for the update. Good to know you aren't really i trouble in Wales. Bah for scammers!!!!

Kristin said...

Oh my gosh! HOW funny! I got that too! But I knew it had to be false - you were no where near that airport as far as I could tell . . . but if you ever do need anything and you are stuck in an airport, I'm your girl . . . xoxo

Denise said...

What a mess! Hope that you get this straightened out without too much trouble. I'm sure all of us who blogs with you know that you would never do anything like that.

Blast those hackers! Paint them ugly, Cam!

Heather Henry said...

Oh Poop, I'm so sorry you had to go through that. Frustrations galore. :(

brandi said...

~a little late replying...but see the one thing they didn't do was come across as kind as you...when i opened and started reading i knew right away as well...i thought...she would never come across as bold as this...

i am so sorry you have fallen in the hands of these evil ones...i know your pain and frustration as i had my paypal account hacked into and they made a hefty little purchase...i had to wait many days for the whole thing to be resolved...was not a pretty sight...i will make sure to pay attention if yahoo asks me to verify...so so sorry and hopefully you will have this mess fixed soon...be well and much love ligh and blessings~
