My Email account was hacked!!!!

Dear friends of the world wide web,

my email account was hacked and is empty - no mails - no adresses.... :((((( (edit: yahoo could repare this, so glad about this)

AND I AM NOT in the Philippines and don´t need any money, so don´t transfer something and don´t answer this mail.

I am so sorry... EDIT: BUT I solved the Problem with a friendly Lady from Yahoo on the phone! changed the Password twice and deleted the email adress of the hacker, he put in my account. CRAZY

Oh my, I was so excited about this. So glad, I could solve this so quickly because you all sent me so many mails and asked about this - THANK YOU!!!


This mail is not from me:


Good Morning How are you doing? My regrets for this sudden request, On My trip to Philippines.I got mugged and all my belongings cash,cellphones and credit cards were all stolen at "gun point"it's such a traumatic experience for me. I need your help flying back home as I am trying to raise some money.i have made contact with my bank but the best they can do is to mail me a new card which will take 2-3 days to arrive here.I need you to lend me some money to sort my self out of this predicament, will pay back once i get this over with, kindly assist me.....i will be back shortly online to read from you

Western Union Transfer is the fastest option to wire funds to me. Let me
know if you need my details(Full names/location) to effect a transfer. You
can reach me via email.

I'm freaked out at the moment




  1. Such a nasty thing to get involved in. I was wondering when I received the email and just wanted to send you a flickr mail to check how you are doing.
    Glad you are OK.
    Maybe someone computer savvy can tell you what to do now.

  2. I had no idea, I did not get this mail from "you". The same happened to another friend, so I guess I would have been wary in the first place, but I'm sorry you had to go through such trouble!

  3. I didn't get this email from you but I have had one from my long arm quilter in the past, apparently "arrested in Spain" and needed cash for bail - she is a 70 year old lady with impeccable manners and much better grammar than these notes tend to have so I was very confident it was a scam! Hope you get your account sorted out and back to normal again v soon x

  4. I did get the email but deleted it. Glad you got the problem sorted out. Sorry you had to go through that! Have a super great week!

  5. I thought it was a really strange e-mail, and I did not answer it.
    I am happy to read that you are fine, but this kind of hacking must be difficult to handle.

  6. I just got this email and knew it was a scam...bad grammar and all. Glad you are okay, hackers are the scum of the earth!

  7. I saw the email last night and deleted it. I am sorry you were hacked, it is a reminder to me to change all my passwords, back up computer and blog and all that, thank you. You will have my email again with this comment, good luck clearing up the damage.

  8. When I read your mail, I was at work. I just knew that's not true and I wanted to write about it to you via Flickr after work, but you were faster:)
    I'm glad that everything is OK now!

  9. "I'm freaked out at the moment" würde dann ja sogar noch passen! Echt krass sowas... Musst du jetzt einen neuen Account erstellen, oder wie läuft das dann?

  10. if it says anonymous I automatically delete......thanks for the info

  11. Bei der ersten Email habe ich noch gedacht, dass du es evtl. sein könntest. Obwohl ich dachte, dass Banken doch sicherlich Möglichkeiten hätte, Geld zu schicken? Aber die zweite Email war dann doch zu merkwürdig.

    Ich bin jedenfalls froh, dass es dir gut geht.

    Liebe Grüße von Kirstin.

  12. "Your" Email landed in the Spam folder anyway... Wie gut dass alles geklärt ist. Du Arme!

  13. So ein M....! Ich habe schon mehrfach diese Bittmails bekommen, in denen irgendjemand plötzlich ganz weit weg ist und dringendst Hilfe braucht. Natürlich nur in Geldform. Ich hoffe, dass niemand darauf reinfällt.
    Und ich bin heilfroh, dass es dir gut geht.
    Ist schon eine blöde Situation. Man fühlt sich irgendwie wie ausgeraubt. Ich schicke dir liebe Grüße und gute Gedanken.

  14. Zum Glück (!!?) kommen Mails mit derartigem Inhalt einfach zu häufig, als dass man sie ernst nehmen würde.
    Wirklich schlimm wäre es, wenn man tatsächlich mal Hilfe brauchen würde aber die Empfänger zu abgestumpft wären um darauf zu reagieren.

    (Ätzend, wenn da Leute derart in die Privatspäre eindringen. Sich dann auch noch so rechtfertigen zu müssen ist fürchterlich. Aber eben auch lehrreich, selbst mal wieder die Passwörter zu überdenken.....)
