Having a massive problem. My Hotmail account appears to have been hacked. Loads of my contacts have received random emails appearing to be from me. Most have received the following: how are you I would like to introduce you a very good trade company . I bought the electronic products from them recently. All the products are original and high quality .and they have good after-sales-service. Please take some time to have a look: www.nimoyf.com .May be you can get more profit. E-mail:firstname.lastname@example.org Sincerely Eva_Smith The email appears to come from me and is even signed with my name. Upon searching the email address online I've ascertained that this is a worldwide scame and appears that my hotmail password has been hacked. No problem can just reset password and reset account settings. But, a few of my contacts, including my boyfriend, have received a different email. This email appears to be between me and an address I do not recognise. It appears that this person has contacted me and I have replied. There are a few emails back and forth, and then the final email (and all the previous replies) have been forwarded to a few from my contacts list. This apparent conversation is/would be quite incriminating had it genuinely happened. Obviously, my boyfriend is a bit upset by all this. Although the first email I've described appears to be clearly a hacker, I can't understand how the second has happened. Luckily, one of the replies I've apparently sent was timed at 4am, when I was in bed asleep with said boyfriend. Any ideas how on earth this can have happened?
