Warning! To everyone who knows my personal email under my real name

If you get an e-mail from my real name AOL e-mail it is SPAM.

For some reason, a lot of people on my e-mail list,including suppliers, seem to have been sent an e-mail,

Be aware that I did not send this email.

Am investigating.

Look at your "autorepond for vacation" information. What they often do is hack into Yahoo and Gmail accounts, then change your autoresponder to "on" and then paste their spam into the autoresponse. I've had this happen to me.

The AOL situation is slightly different, but if that is what they did, then the 'mail away' is now back to normal.

I keep suspecting a C-A-T but I honestly don't see how they could have sent an e-mail to practically every address on my contacts list.

I doubt the kitties have yet figured out CC-mail ... at least I hope not. When cats get a taste for spamming, we're all in big trouble.

I'm not familiar with AOL, but that would have been my guess. The little jerks find ways to do everything these days. *groan*

Have you gotten enough information to tell whether they actually broke into your account or are just impersonating you?

Looks like that, if it wasn't a cat playing with the keyboard or AOL messing up (by no means impossible) my account must have been hacked. Password change, I guess.
