Update March 7th. 2010,
Hello Everyone, I am typing this message from My OLD Computer. It has now been several days since my computer was hacked into and all my old saved messages deleted and all my contacts from my address book stolen and delelted. I have run our Norton antivirus software and nothing came back saying that I had a virus on my computer. It was clear. But to make doubly certain that my computer is now safe to use again we took it into Staples to have them double check it too and to see if there was any other damage done to it. Staples IT Technician told me that there was NO need to change my email address. Just changing my password and doing it on a regular bases was all that was needed.
I would like to let everyone know that I have receieved several message saying this same thing happen to them and it was discovered that their computers was compromised through their "Facebook" accounts". I have NO idea if this is true or not but I am not taking anymore chances with them. I just started a facebook account a few weeks back. I have tried on a couple of acassions now to delete my "Facebook Account" with NO luck. If anyone know how to delete their facebook account please email and let me know. Thanks.
Another aspect of having this happen to me and my computer is that I have LOST all my friends contact email addies. This has been very sad for me because I can not write anyone to let them know this has happen because I not longer have their email addresses. Such a "Nasty and Evil person" he or she was to do this to me and others. Again, I would like to Thank everyone for your understanding and thoughful and kind messages of support you have sent me. They all have been greatly appreciated. Hugs Judy
Today my computer was hacked into and all my contact information stolen and deleted and my email messages all deleted too. I am sooooooooooooooooooooo very upset over this. One good thing they did not delete my blog. I am sooooooooooooooooooooo sorry that everyone is getting emails from me asking for money. Please do not respond to this UK Scam. I do NOT need money. I have changed my password and will probably have to change my email addy soon. Again. I am so sorry for this mess. Extremely Sad Face. It has truly been a nightmare for me. Hugs Judy
Update: I would like to thank all my dear friends for their kind and caring messages to me. I would also like to thank my friends who have called me to give me words of encouragement and support. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I pray that nothing like this ever happens to any of you or me again. It has been the most awful experience. I feel like someone broke into my house, beat me and left me for dead. I went to bed last night feeling very ill over all of this.
I have been overwhelmed by this attack on my computer and hopefully in time I will get back with everyone personally to thank you all for your kind support.
Hopefully I will soon get back to my cheerful self..
