Email Scam Update

From: Nats F.
Sent on: Sunday, August 15, 2010 11:34 AM
My email was recently hacked (I have a Gmail acct.) of course its very distressing. As soon as my phone started ringing off the hook on Friday the 13th I tried logging into my acct and was unable. Gmail does not have over the phone support so I had to submit a form for them to launch and investigation. I was anticipating at least 24 hours before they would contact me but they did OK. I was contacted by my alternate email address with 2 hours with a new link to reset the password and acct info. I learned a couple of things although it was quite upsetting. If you are forwarding your emails from one address to another dont. This is one way hacker get your info. I did hear from my accountant who said it happened to one of her clients and her bank accts were drained. Apparently she was using her same login info for her bank accts as her email (DONT DO THAT). Dont click on anything that asks about your password or where they can forward a link to log you in. Apparently my mistake I downloaded a virus from the Droid market place that allowed access to my contacts and then they changed my login info. Whether using an Iphone or Droid be careful about what you allow the apps to access. Just thought I'd pass this along.
