ME-NO-IMPRESSED!!! Red Alert

Thanks to Madi's mum letting me know that she couldn't open a link she had been sent....

Trouble is she thought it was from your's truly!!!  Now this bogus photographic link-up nonsense did not come from me - well not directly.  There was an email from another friend yesterday sharing a link.  I didn't twig.  

Now I find that my address book in gmail has been wiped clean. I would alert everyone by email otherwise.  So the warning is coming this way and will also send an alert out via G+ circles. 

If you have rec'd a dud email purporting to be from me - note that it is NOT signed in my trademark "YAM xx" style and you may note that it is sent to nearly everyone in the world - which of course is a total fabrication. You may like to add to the hail of HBO words being offered into the ether this side... I shall be seeking to gather all email addresses in due course. 

......mutter....mutter......mutter.....mutter.........mutter........mutter.......

  1. OH MY GOODNESS YAM-AUNTY WE ARE SO SORRY...AND WE ACTUALLY THOUGHT IT WAS FROM YOU. OF COURSE MOM KNOWS ZILCH ABOUT HOW CRAZY PEOPLE CAN GET THEMSELVES ALL TANGLED UP IN OTHER FOLK'S EMAILS MAKING THEM LOOK AUTHENTIC!! OUR VIRUS PROTECTION MUST HAVE DONE IT'S JOB TODAY. IN BOTH LINKS I REC'D ONE WAS LISTED AS NOT FOUND, THE OTHER WAS IN RED WITH AN ALERT...YOU KNOW I'M ALL ABOUT RED. LOTS OF HUGS AND LET US KNOW IF YOU NEED HELP WITH ESTABLISHING YOUR EMAILS AGAIN.
    HUGS MADI AND CECILIA

      Yes, when you emailed me, the red virus alert was there within gmail - the trouble came my end when the mail rec'd from my friend yesterday had nothing to alert one. ....sigh.....

  3. Hi Yam, I just came over to let you know your Gmail had been hacked, but I see you already found out! They got my hubby's gmail last week. Do you know what to do? (go to gmail and change your password, check your account details to ensure none have been changed by the hacker, then scan your computer for viruses - use a free program like AVG or Malwarebytes). Good luck. I knew it wasn't you because the language wasn't your usual style, oh and because we installed AVG to catch viruses after my hubby's experience :)

  6. I didn't open it either; I knew it wasn't the real Yam.

  7. I figured some one had hacked I. As the wording was not My Yam's. So I didn't open it. And what's more they sent a second one.

  8. Same here, I knew it wasn't from you and was wondering if your email had been hacked. My mom works with someone who has had their email hacked several times. Since mom got those types of emails from her she was suspicious and didn't do anything with it. So sorry this happened to you. I would have no idea what to do if it happened to me.
