Well it seems I have been hacked.
This time an email has gone out to all my contacts saying that I am in the Ukraine, I have had my handbag stolen and all my credit cards and I am penniless and can you please send me some money to stop me from starving or words to that effect.
Now I know that nearly everyone this has gone to will ignore it or have it filtered etc but this kind of thing is really irritating. I also wonder why it is done. Do people think that anybody is going to fall for this kind of thing? Or do they do it just for the fun of causing problems. I think it is the latter as all my friends and contacts will know full well that the Ukraine is not on the list of places I am likely to zap off to on a mini-break and particularly NOT in the middle of February. If I want to freeze and get out my thermals I can stay here in Colchester thank you very much.
So my apologies to all of you who have been bothered. I have now reset my account and changed my password and am also in the process of adding all my contacts which have been wiped as well.
