hey guys - i really dont know what to say other than sorry i guess, really.
its really bothering me how this could have happened as everytime i see people post about their accounts being used like this, right away i acredit their lack of control / responsibility when signing up to places and allowing said sites to access their contacts.
ive never used such a service so its really bugging me how this could have happened.
my internets been on / off the past week, due to what i thought was the weather but then was notified that there was problems in the area that i can see they were working on since i saw the utility trucks all over the place at all hours working on the problem. connection was stable all day yesterday and when i logged into my mail account there was close to 100 weird emails from craigslist and ebay, all 'failure to deliver' messages! ?????
i found an email "FROM ME" in one of my wifes accounts that only consisted of a link in the body. in the 'to' line i can see that the same email was sent to a few different people i know i have in my contacts list.
needless to say i spent the ENTIRE!!! afternoon / evening deleting whatever emails might have been in that account that contained personal info and changing passwords and primary email info in a bunch of sites where i use that account.
checked it a few times last night to see if anymore bogus emails were in my inbox but nothing. checked this morning - nothing. checked my wifes - nothing from "me" there either.
will continue to do whatever little i can think of to rectify the problem even though i think the damage has already been done. if you guys think of anything i can do please post to let me know. again - sorry about that folks!
LMAO from previous posts even though im pretty upset about the whole thing. just hope the emails stop coming. as i said let me know if theres anything you guys think of i should double check or if any new ones pop up in your inboxes.
