  1. sorry..........someone has hijacked my email. once security settings are changed--it only takes 2 hours for them to get back into it

    yahoo has been of no help solving these problems

  2. Paul raises a VERY good point with these scammers. Sometimes perfectly innocent people get their accounts hacked and then the scam email goes out from their account. It is happening a lot to hotmail and yahoo users recently. So Paul is innocent. This is a good thing to keep in mind.

    My own hotmail account was hacked into yesterday so I know what Paul is going through. Mine hacker sent out a spam advertisement and was not soliciting to purchase anything but it looked like it was coming from me so of course all my friends clicked on the link.

    Thank you for writing in Paul. It's a great example of how innocent people's accounts get used by hackers.
