hacked my e-mail

Actually my wife's e-mail. She hadn't had an e-mail in a couple days so she contacted Apple. They told her she had the forwarding on. She did not and did not know who the g-mail account was that it is forwarded to. Apple says she was hacked. All e-mails were forwarded and deleted. Anything we should be concerned with?

BTW anyone who sent her junk-shots should keep an eye on the internet.

My wife thinks we're a bunch of Top Gun wannabes with our call signs, so for future reference, I'm Roger

I had my gmail account hacked about a month ago. They sent out a bunch of odd emails, probably containing something to hack the recipient's. But, somehow gmail knew there was something fishy, locked my account, didn't allow any of those emails to be sent out, and it made me reset my password before i could log on again.

Make sure that the computers she regularly uses to access her email accounts do not have any viruses, spyware or trojan horses.

In the future, refrain from using public/random computers to access email or other personal accounts (bank, amazon, ebay, etc.).

my earthlink account was hacked a few years ago. wasn't receiving any emails. i found out it was 'forwarded' to some other email address. earthlink support told me to change my password and then i also gave them the email my stuff was being forwarded to; they said they would take some action, but not sure what that would be or if they ever did. but i haven't had any problems since
good luck

I had this happen to me about a year ago. Someone placed an order for about $3,000 worth of stuff at Newegg. They had gotten my paypal and gmail password (they were the same) so they used my paypal to pay. I was on vacation that weekend and got back to no emails which I thought was weird. I checked my trash and there they all were. Contacted paypal and they gave me my money back. It all worked out in the end for me, but now I'm extremely careful about using secure passwords and different ones for each website.

Bingo. Checked the bank statement today and there is a $682 Paypal pending. Every time I try to go to Paypals site it says they are updating their security measures and need my bank account info and credit card number. I'll send that and my first born right over. Just once I'd like to actually see these little internet hacking geeks in person. I'll show the little prick what hard drive really is.

I know your feeling exactly. I was able to find the address that the stuff was being shipped to. It was in Miami. Boy did I want to go down there and do something. I googled the address and it came back with a bunch of robberies, drug busts, and murders which quickly ended my want to go down there.

Good luck with it all. I remember having to put all that crap back into paypal again after this fiasco too. I started the claim online and then a few days later someone called me and I explained what happened. Got the money back in about a week after filing the report with them. Local police were useless for this and said I needed to file a report in the location that it happened (Miami). I called the Miami police and they said they couldn't do anything either and I should just file through Paypal and my Bank.
