spam warning  
Just wanted to let you all know that I think someone has hacked into my Yahoo account and is sending spam messages to all my contacts. Whatever you do, don't click on the link!

I'm really sorry for the inconvenience.

Same, it is just really annoying.

Thanks! Once I realized it had be hacked, I changed my password and reported that my account was compromised. Hopefully it's done and over now. :)

I had a feeling that was spam! Luckily I deleted it right away. How are you, sorry I haven't kept in touch very well :-(. I hope all is well and that you are having a great summer!!

Yeah, they make it pretty obvious, but that's good! Fortunately, by now, I think almost everyone knows what a spam mail looks like.

It's okay, I have been pretty bad at it myself. My summer is going all right. How about you? I hope everything is going well with you too! :)

I got one two and was going to send you a message. Luckily you already knew. XD

But no need to apologize, its not your fault. And I think we've all been hacked before, unfortunately.

Apparently the spambot liked you more than other people! Some of the messages bounced back and I was like "wait, why are e-mails I never sent coming back to me?" Then I realized what happened.

Yeah, it sucks. I've had my FB account hacked too. I just wanted to make notice and I am relieved there was no harm done. :D

Thanks, fortunately, no harm was done and I think the matter is resolved. :)

Yep, saw it. I never click on stuff like that, so no worries. :) Hope you get it sorted out.

I figured that most people know better but I thought I should post a warning anyway. Thanks! I think it is. :)

That seems to be going on with the yahoo accounts. My mom has a yahoo email account. And I got an email from her. She was hacked.

I never clicked the link but I opened the email so I changed my password.

I wonder why that's happening. Maybe Yahoo accounts are easier to hack than others? Which isn't saying much for their security. :\

That's smart. It's better safe than sorry.

Yeah. I don't know. I don't use yahoo. I use gmail. It sounds like Yahoo needs better security.
