~I,VE BEEN *HACKED*

Hi everybody....

I had a nasty surprise this morning at around 8am when all of a sudden I lost all my contacts and emails

I've had a few people ring and say they received an email from me asking for help and that I was stuck somewhere overseas......

Please ignore these emails.......I am sill here

I have set up a new email now that comments can go to......

I'm so sorry I can't reply to comments received now due to those contacts being gone........

We are trying to deal with all this in the background

Has anyone else experienced this?????



But for now I would love to sit and have a cuppa and do some stitching but no way at the moment!!!!!!

See you on the other side..........

I had a weird email from you today too, I knew it wasn't really you. What a horrible violating experience. i have to say that photo of a drink has me craving a hot chocolate now.

Hi dear Dzintra, I also had such an email; and immediately knew something was wrong...... not your style of writing..... ;)
Some people.....#$%^&@##!.!!!!!
Hope everything is back to normal soon!
Love, Ria.

Don't worry it's happened to a few of my friends. Seems a virus is carried by an email which is opened in all innocence.
Such a nuisance for you. Don't worry we knew it was not really you!

Hi Dzintra,
Changing your passwords can sometimes fix the problem, just never use the same password again. The good thing is that we all recognised that these emails weren't from you and didn't respond. I always tell my friends if ever in doubt just delete them!
Regards
Jo

Yep, I received "your" email this morning, but knew straight away it was a scam! It happened to me a few weeks ago and I remember how awful it felt - 'identity theft' feels just as bad as your house being physically burgled! (I've had that happen too.... :-/ )

Precious one, yes, this has happened to me before! I took off all of my widgets from my blog because some how my blog was messed with through widgets! Be well, and stitch away! LOVE, Anita

Nat Palaskas said...

I received one from you too, but I knew that it wasn't because I had the same emails a few times already - Hugs Nat

YES it is very unsettling to know how susceptible our creative corners are! Keeping things to a privacy minimum is the best and watching for strange things in our emails! GOOD LUCK MY DEAR! Anita

Anne @ Domesblissity said...

Oh, how awful Dzintra. What do these people think they are achieving by doing this. Hope you get it all sorted. Hope you enjoyed that cuppa!

I received that email this morning,of course I knew it was not from you. Some years back I received one very like the one from "you" , I did understand it was fake. It's deleted. All the best, hugs, Grethe .

Fiona said...

what a pain.... hope you get it all sorted... I didn't realise you would lose all your stuff...
I've had a couple of those mails lately from different people...

Dearest Dzintra...oh this is so yucky, that is the mild version of the words that come to mind...
I am so sorry!
I hope it all gets worked out, dear friend, very soon.
I am going to catch up on your posts...been a rather chaotic week around here...
Take care of yourself, dear one!
Big hugs to you,
- Irina

Hello Dzintra,

I tried to reply to your email but it came back to me. I just came via your blog and you haven't changed the email address on your blog profile so that is why my email came back to me. Please let me know your new email address.

Happy days.
Bev.
