In 2011 I went on a small vacation with my husband, Mother, and children to the Mountains of NC. While I was there my sister called me and asked where was I and if everything was OK? Needless to say I was really confused but I answered her questions and told her I was fine, but why do you ask? She informed me that she received an email from me saying that I was in another country and was in serious need of money wired to me now! Still not sure what was going on I tried to just enjoy my last day away from the stress of home and enjoy my Family.
When I got home I had a lot of emails from friends wanting to know if I was OK and what was going on! So I then had to spend the next few hours sending messages to everyone and telling them I was OK that I had been spammed, and changing ALL of my passwords online! I was so thankful that they did not get into my financials but if they can hack into my computer that easy then they could get my bank records, etc just as easy.
